  1. Report: Sixers reach out to Brian Shaw about coaching job

    Apr 28, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw is once again going to get a number of job interviews this off-season… well, once the Pacers start to have an off-season. And among the teams he will talk to is the Philadelphia 76ers, reports Dei Lynam CSNPhilly.com. The Sixers, according to a source, have contacted the Pacers’ associate head coach about their…

  2. During 2011 playoffs, Phil Jackson told Lakers he had prostate cancer

    Apr 28, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    The last time the Lakers were swept out of the playoffs (as could happen Sunday as the Lakers trail the Spurs 3-0) it was 2011, when the Lakers were the title defenders. The Dallas Mavericks made short work of Los Angeles in the second round (and went on to win a title). After that loss,…

  3. Russell Westbrook injury throws race in West wide open

    Apr 26, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook takes a break on the court against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    The Oklahoma City Thunder were already no lock to make the NBA finals. They were a slight favorite to make a return trip to the big stage but the Spurs (if healthy, and they are starting to look it) have always been a threat, plus there were the Grizzlies and Clippers as dark horses (just…

  4. Report: Brian Shaw, Mike Malone early frontrunners for 76ers coaching job

    Apr 24, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    UPDATE  2:51 p.m.: Clearly the 76ers are looking at some of the league’s top assistants to fill Doug Collins’ shoes. So you can add Golden State’s Mike Malone to the list with Brian Shaw of Indiana, reports Dei Lynam at CSNPhilly.com. Both are up and coming top assistants considered bright minds who make their head coaches…

  5. Sixers will consider Bynum return but have bigger issues to deal with

    Apr 19, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The Philadelphia 76ers gambled and lost. They traded Andre Iguodala to get back Andrew Bynum and rebuild their roster around an elite big man. Problem was, he’s an elite big man with terrible knees that never saw the court. And the aftermath of that decision is just beginning to come to down on the team.…

  6. It’s official, Doug Collins out as 76ers head coach

    Apr 18, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Doug Collins

    This isn’t a surprise. Not to you — we told you this was coming a week ago. And not to the Sixers organization — coach Doug Collins said he let the organization know his plans just after Christmas. But now it is official — Doug Collins has resigned as the head coach of the Philadelphia…

  7. Sixers players sound ready for disappointing season to end

    Apr 17, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    Some teams have packed it in already. The Portland Trail Blazers decided to play their young guys a lot more rather than chance a final playoff spot and have lost 12 in a row. The Cleveland Cavaliers are disinterested, and unfortunately that group includes Kyrie Irving. But they aren’t the only teams that can’t wait…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

  9. Who’s next as 76ers head coach? How about some Curry? Or Mike Brown?

    Apr 15, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Mike Brown

    Doug Collins is stepping down. Oh, he could be back with the Sixers next season in some kind of front office role or as a consultant — the two sides will find some kind of buyout and graceful exit for him — but he will not be grinding the players in practice and storming the…

  10. Despite what his agent says,reportedly Doug Collins will not return to Philly

    Apr 14, 2013, 10:42 PM EDT

    Doug Collins

    Despite what his agent said hours before, Doug Collins is not returning to the Philadelphia 76ers. Sunday night Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports reported Collins told Philly ownership he would not return. Collins, 62, has one year left on a four-year deal, but has told management he won’t return in that job. Collins’ possible return…

  11. Doug Collins’ agent says coach, Sixers management’s relationship all good

    Apr 12, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    Doug Collins

    And so now comes the second wave of spin. First came the report Thursday that the Sixers management would be happy if he just decided to walk away after this season. Of course, every step of the it was emphasized this was Collin’s call — he is under contract for next year and Sixers management…

  12. Report: Sixers hope Doug Collins walks at end of season

    Apr 11, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    Doug Collins

    It’s pretty clear the Sixers are done with Doug Collins and Doug Collins is pretty done with the 76ers. This fits the Collins burnout pattern — three seasons with the Bulls, three seasons with Detroit, two with Washington, now three in Philly. But of course, it’s not going to be that simple because there is…

  13. Andrew Bynum a no-show for Sixers’ team picture day

    Apr 10, 2013, 8:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Sixers fans would probably like to forget that last summer’s trade to bring Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia ever happened. Looking at the official team picture from the 2012-13 season should make it very easy. From John Finger of CSNPhilly.com: Though there were a lot of different faces in this year’s photo, there were two that…

  14. Evan Turner still enigma for 76ers. Where does he fit in?

    Apr 10, 2013, 4:05 PM EDT

    Evan Turner

    There are games you watch Evan Turner play and you can see why he went No. 2 in the draft — he dropped 24 and 11 on Atlanta last Friday and looked like the kind of building block Philadelphia hoped he would be when they took him ahead of Derrick Favors, DeMarcus Cousins and Paul…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Knicks climb up to No. 2

    Apr 8, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Jason Kidd

    Welcome to the penultimate PBT power rankings for the season. If you win 12 games in a row you can get the No. 2 spot, but if you asked me to pick who wins a seven game series between the Thunder and Knicks it would look different than this ranking. Same with the Spurs. But…

  16. Breaking down the seeding chase in the Eastern Conference

    Apr 2, 2013, 3:08 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony reacts after making a three-point shot against Boston Celtics during their NBA game in New York

    Unlike their friends in the West, there really is no playoff chase in the East. The top eight teams are pretty much locked in, starting with Miami as the one seed down to the Bucks, the current eight seed. The Sixers are six games back of the Bucks for that final playoff spot, so while…

  17. Andrew Bynum not expected to give Sixers special consideration in free agncy

    Mar 31, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    After the Sixers traded for Andrew Bynum last summer, who was coming off of an All-Star season as a member of the L.A. Lakers, the franchise expected to be even better than it was the year before, which concluded with Philadelphia advancing into the second round of the playoffs. It didn’t turn out that way…

  18. Andre Iguodala confirms he plans to opt out after season

    Mar 31, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Odds are Andre Iguodala is back in Nuggets powder blue (and sometimes bright yellow) next season. There is a real fit there — on an up-tempo team he provides an athletic slashing scorer and perimeter defender they need to reach the top levels of the conference. But the Nuggets are going to have to pony…

  19. Philadelphia CEO rips team on twitter after disaster in Denver

    Mar 22, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    Damien Wilkins, Evan Turner, Arnett Moultrie, Doug Collins

    Philadelphia was up 5 with :14 seconds left in the game — they were going to end the Nuggets 13-game winning streak and pick up a rare quality win. Until Corey Brewer hit a three. Then Evan Turner missed both free throws for Philly. Then Damien Wilkins (who had a really good game with 24…

  20. Andrew Bynum has his knee surgeries. So that’s done.

    Mar 21, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Andrew Bynum’s knees were not right all season, he will not play one minute of one game. So how much are teams willing to gamble that this solved the problem? First things first, Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports Radio tweets that Bynum’s knee surgery to clean up everything following his previous surgery…

  21. Andrew Bynum gets no slack from his former high school coach

    Mar 19, 2013, 3:55 PM EDT

https://twitter.com/JordanRaanan

    Andrew Bynum is not exactly the most popular sports figure in Philadelphia right now. To put it kindly. The man the Sixers traded Andre Iguodala for, the guy they planned to rebuild the roster around, has not played a game for them all season. He was injured, recovery times got pushed, back, and next he…

  22. Andrew Bynum to have both knees operated on, done for season

    Mar 18, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum — the guy Philadelphia traded Andre Iguodala for — may never play a game in a 76ers uniform. He’s not going to this year. Multiple reports including CSNPhilly.com have have confirmed that Bynum is going to undergo surgery on both knees to clean up remaining debris giving him problem. Bynum made the decision…

  23. Friday And-1 Links: Rajon Rondo is better on national television

    Mar 15, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like I like a good IPA. Which is a lot. • It’s not a…

  24. Report: Sixers almost acquired Josh Smith at deadline

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Devin Harris

    On paper it’s an impressive front line — Andrew Bynum and Josh Smith. On the court… that would have been interesting. I mean, assuming Bynum ever gets back on the court. Like the Bucks backcourt, it could be both amazing and painfully bad, not even game to game but quarter to quarter. We will not…

  25. Sixers CEO calls Andrew Bynum trade a move that “should have worked”

    Mar 4, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    There is a palpable frustration surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether you’re a fan watching at home, a season ticket holder, the head coach, or an executive in the front office, the odds are that you are not happy with the way this season has progressed. They have lost eight of their last 10 games, are…
