Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Michael Carter-Williams salary going into trust he can’t touch

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    Sixers’ rookie Michael Carter-Williams is putting up the best rookie numbers in Philadelphia since Allen Iverson. Which is a good comparison. A very good one. But there is one area where Carter-Williams is not following the pattern of Iverson (a notorious spender): MCW has yet to touch a dime of his salary this season. That’s…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  3. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  4. Brett Brown made 76ers cut weight, and now opponents are begging them to stop running

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams, George Hill

    New 76ers coach Brett Brown has quickly established his preferred style of play. Philadelphia ranks No. 1 in the NBA in pace and No. 1 in distance travelled per game (as culled from NBA.com’s player-tracking data), and it’s no accident. Brown made his intent clear before the season even began. Dei Lynam of CSN Philly:…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Injuries start to shape the rankings

    Nov 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies at San Antonio Spurs

    The top of our rankings remain solid this week, but after a bad weekend of injuries there were a few shakeups farther down with more to come. 1. Spurs (12-1, Last Week No. 1). They are the winners of 10 in a row and are doing it with great defense, good offense, not much Tim…

  6. Report: Derrick Rose to have surgery Monday, likely to repair meniscus and end season

    Nov 24, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Derrick Rose will have surgery on his right knee on Monday, coach Tom Thibodeau said Sunday. Rose has a choice with getting his torn right meniscus repaired, although both options involve surgery (and it depends somewhat on the tear itself). Both options have big impacts on the Bulls front office and its next move. One…

  7. Sixers’ Spencer Hawes hits contested, twisting three to force overtime (VIDEO)

    Nov 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes Sixers

    Spencer Hawes ladies and gentlemen. With the Sixers down three and 3.9 seconds left against the Bucks, Hawes set a pick then slid down the sideline and wasn’t option No. 1 on the play — plus Gary Neal had him well defended — but Hawes got the pass and went up with it, knocking down…

  8. The Extra Pass: Three takeaways and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    paul george

    Three takeaways from a busy Wednesday night around the league: It was Paul George, in the Garden, with the dagger It’s a crazy thing to watch an entire arena lose all hope, all at once. The Knicks were well on their way to a statement win over the Indiana Pacers. Maybe it could have been…

  9. Sixers waive Kwame Brown, Darius Morris

    Nov 20, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    If you’re a team looking for a backup big man to soak up a few minutes in the paint, Kwame Brown is available… not that your team should pick him up. Just saying he’s available. Brown and teammate Darius Morris have been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo…

  10. Michael Carter-Williams expected to return Wednesday vs. Raptors

    Nov 20, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    It took all of about one game for Michael Carter-Williams to become everyone’s favorite rookie and the new face of Philadelphia 76ers basketball. However a bruised foot sidelined him the last four games (three of them Sixers losses). Without him there isn’t much to cheer about around the Sixers. So it’s good news that he…

  11. Report: Kings “aggressively” looking to trade veterans to accelerate rebuild

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    While most teams are feeling out deals and moving patiently with their big trade chips to see how the market shakes out — see the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets as examples 1A and 1B — the new regime in Sacramento is feeling a little more impatient. They have veterans available and they are looking…

  12. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  13. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  14. The Extra Pass: An early look at SportVU data and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chances are at some point this season, you’ve heard about SportVU. For the uninitiated, SportVU is a player tracking software that utilizes cameras positioned around the court to collect all sorts of data. It’s a major breakthrough for analytics, and while a good portion of teams have had the software and data for a few years,…

  15. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about them Sixers?

    Nov 14, 2013, 2:19 AM EDT

    James Anderson

    Our grades from Wednesday around the NBA, or what you missed while watching a man attack a taxi with a didgeridoo…  Tony Wroten, Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie sensation Michael Carter-Williams was out and Wroten got thrown in the fire with his first ever start against Houston — and he responded with a triple double. Wroten finished…

  16. Don’t think Andrew Wiggins is a lock as No. 1 pick. He’s not.

    Nov 13, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    We’ve blown him up — when you talk about NBA teams taking this season we call it “riggin for Wiggins.” As in Andrew Wiggins, the Kansas freshman who had 22 points and 10 boards, plus played some good defense, in leading his team past Duke Tuesday night. Wiggins is atop every serious mock draft right…

  17. League warns Chris Paul, Anderson Varejao for flopping

    Nov 12, 2013, 8:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    You had to know it was only a matter of time before Chris Paul got a flopping warning, the only question was when. How about eight games? Tuesday the league announced warnings for both the Clippers Paul and Anderson Varejao of the Cavaliers. These are the first offense this season warnings for the players, the…

  18. PBT NBA Power Rankings: It’s the Pacers, Spurs then everyone else

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    David Stern’s nightmare Finals matchup is on top of the second PBT NBA Power rankings — Indiana and San Antonio. Lots of shifting still going on in the rankings as teams shake themselves out just a couple weeks into the season, but a few patterns are emerging. 1. Pacers (7-0, Last Week No. 1). Yes…

  19. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  20. Michael Carter-Williams’ family prepared him for this moment

    Nov 6, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    He’s the guy everybody around the NBA wants to talk about. When Michael Carter-Williams was selected No. 11 by the Philadelphia 76ers this rapid success wasn’t expected. It was thought he could develop into the point guard of the future there in a few years (they had just traded away Jrue Holiday). He was tall,…

  21. Sixers completely rebuilding Nerlens Noel’s shot

    Nov 6, 2013, 10:41 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    We’re not likely to see a potentially fun Michael Carter-Williams/Nerlens Noel pairing until next season — Noel is expected to miss this entire season recovering from ACL surgery he suffered at Kentucky last year. But the Sixers are not wasting that down time — they are completely rebuilding his shot. With a full year to…

  22. No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett starts season 0-15 shooting through four games

    Nov 5, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Anthony Bennett, Jonas Jerebko

    It’s way, way too early to freak out about this or to use the “B” word. (“Bust.” As your mom used to say get your mind out of the gutter.) That said… Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett is off to a historically rough start of his rookie season. He is 0-of-15 from the…

  23. Evan Turner talked trash to Iguodala before Sixers faced Warriors. That went well.

    Nov 5, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Evan Turner

    Andre Iguodala went off on his homecoming to Philadelphia — the former Sixer went off for 11 points and hit 3-of-4 from beyond the arc in the first quarter and just kept on going. He had 16 more in the second quarter and ended up with 32 points and a career best seven threes as…

  24. The Extra Pass: Clippers offensive fireworks cover up struggling defense, plus Monday recaps

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know how to put on a show — they dropped a highflying 137 points on the Rockets and blew the up-and-coming team out of the water. Through four games the Clippers are averaging 116.7 points per 100s possessions, that is almost 7 points better than the second place team (Houston).…

  25. Monday night NBA grades: Andre Iguodala torches the Sixers, Clippers offense continues to roll

    Nov 5, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Our grades from Monday around the NBA, or what you missed while watching your fantasy football matchup go down in flames … The Clippers offense. Coming into Monday night’s showdown with the Rockets, the Clippers were far and away the best offensive team in the league statistically with an average of 113.3 points per 100 possessions.…
