Philadelphia 76ers forward Arnett Moultrie has been suspended five games without pay for violating the NBA’s drug policy, the league announced. A five-game suspension is the punishment for a third marijuana violation. (The first violation carries no penalty, and the second is a $25,000 fine.) Moultrie, who hasn’t played in Philadelphia’s last nine games, is…

Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.
Mar 28, 2014, 11:44 AM EDT
The Philadelphia 76ers’ rebuild is all about timing. Right now, they’re in the stage of acquiring elite young talent. They drafted Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel last summer, and as long as neither player is yet good enough to lift the 76ers from the NBA’s basement, Philadelphia is eyeing even more elite young talent. This…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a basketball game we were going to spend the next four days talking about how Peyton Manning was going to carve up the Seahawks defense. We had nine more days of hype until the Sochi Winter Olympics opened (and one Olympic ring didn’t). Since Jan. 29 the Philadelphia…

Fred Carter was the best player on arguably the worst team ever. He was the team MVP of the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers went 9-73, the worst record of any NBA team for a full season (remember the Bobcats were 7-50 I’m the lockout year, which worked out to a worse winning percentage). That Sixers team…

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?
Mar 22, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT
It’s factually and subjectively wrong.
