Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Pau Gasol benched in latest Lakers loss, wants more touches in the post

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    The Lakers have lost two straight after winning their first with Mike D’Antoni in place on the sidelines, and in both of those games, the frontcourt combination of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol was completely shut down. The home win over Brooklyn was solid, but the loss in Sacramento was embarrassing, and the loss in…

  2. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  3. Andrew Bynum speculation reaches new, ridiculous heights of stupidity

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    This shouldn’t even be a story. But we’re here discussing it because with Andrew Bynum nothing seems impossible, not even him needing another knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. And that combined with a doctor giving his opinion on a case where he has absolutely no direct knowledge of what is happening…

  4. Video: Nick Young’s ridiculous three. That falls, of course.

    Nov 21, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Nick Young was in fully Swaggy P mode Tuesday night, so that even when he takes a three pointer that would embarrass Kobe Bryant it goes in. Young was up against the shot clock here, still this shot had no right to go in. But it was that kind of night for Young.

  5. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, ‘Melo and Swaggy P

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:39 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Only three games tonight, so how about we give the three stars to the key players from each of the three winning teams. Sounds good to me. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (25 points, 5 assists, +20) Kobe Bryant has spent almost his entire career in Phil Jackson’s triangle, the only times outside it were in…

  6. Nick Young brings the swagger, the points, the Philly win

    Nov 21, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers' Young celebrates with teammates Richardson and Holiday while playing against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Nick Young brought the full Swagy P to this game. Young can be maddening. His swagger, his confidence can lead to bad decisions. The kind of shots Kobe regrets taking Young doesn’t fear. For example, in the first quarter against the Raptors Tuesday night Young was in the right corner when he got a high…

  7. Former teammate says no one likes basketball less than Andrew Bynum

    Nov 20, 2012, 3:33 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hair

    Things haven’t been going well for Andrew Bynum since joining the Sixers. He has yet to make his debut for the team thanks to a bone bruise in his knee, and his timetable to return seems to be getting continually pushed back. And then there was the bowling. When star athletes struggle like this in…

  8. Cavaliers Kyrie Irving out for month with fractured finger

    Nov 19, 2012, 8:15 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Brooklyn Nets

    Take my word for it as someone who watches an inordinate amount of NBA League Pass, there was only two reasons to tune in to Cleveland Cavaliers games — Kyrie Irving and whoever they were playing against. Now the Cavaliers will be without Irving — he has a hairline fracture on his left index finger…

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot goes walking in Memphis

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Memphis has moved into the top spot in the poll this week, but notice the top three are teams we kind of expected to be on the second or third tier in the NBA this season. The question remains can they keep it up. Oh, and at the other end the Wizards still suck. 1.…

  10. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Boston falls and fails in Detroit

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:34 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Rajon Rando look on from the bench against the Brooklyn Nets in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while watching the Andrew Bynum bowling gif over and over. Lakers 119, Rockets 108: Two straight games with big point totals for the Lakers — 114 last game, 119 this one — and two wins. And that’s with Mike D’Antoni not even…

  11. Three stars of the Night: Kobe, Durant and a defensive gem

    Nov 19, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Seeing names like Kobe and Durant on the three stars of the night can get a bit routine, even when they are both putting up a triple double. But we have a first at the three stars — someone making it because of their defensive efforts. And it’s well deserved. Honorable mention to DeMarcus Cousins…

  12. Andrew Bynum confirms he had knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Well, at least he owned up to it instead of coming up with some lame excuse. That’s something. Andrew Bynum confirmed to the media Sunday he thinks his latest setback in recovery from a knee injury happened when he went bowling. Ugh. From the twitter account of John Finger of CSNPhilly.com. Bynum says he thinks…

  13. Report: Sixers think Bynum’s knee setback due to bowling

    Nov 18, 2012, 12:44 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    There is no denying Andrew Bynum’s talent, no denying how good he can be on the court when focused. He’s an All-Star for a reason. But the Lakers were willing to consider trading him in part because they had concerns about his maturity and about that focus. Which brings us to this report from Brian…

  14. Andrew Bynum says he has setback with knee, timetable unchanged

    Nov 16, 2012, 7:36 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Ugh. Watch the video above and you can see Andrew Bynum no longer has his hair straitened. That’s almost the biggest news. He also talks about a setback with his knee rehab. Which is scarier than his hair for Sixers fans. Well, probably scarier. Earlier this week it was announced he would not return to…

  15. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  16. Report: 76ers near deal to buy Utah Flash as D-League affiliate

    Nov 16, 2012, 3:49 PM EDT

    A number of NBA teams have been buying D-League franchises, turning them into more of a true minor league — it’s never going to be like baseball because only a guy or two at a time might benefit from D-League style seasoning. But it makes sense if you are building a team to have that…

  17. The Knicks are legit. If they can keep this up is another question.

    Nov 16, 2012, 1:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    The Knicks are 6-0, the last undefeated team in the NBA — and it’s not a fluke. They are defending better than anyone in the league, giving up just 93.6 points per 100 possessions, via Hoopdata. (Anyone who says they just started defending this year wasn’t watching last year.) Their offense with Carmelo Anthony at…

  18. Three Stars of the Night: Two Knicks’ guards… and LeBron.

    Nov 16, 2012, 2:48 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton

    We should just name one of these stars after LeBron at this point. Aside that, the story of the night was the Knicks dramatic comeback win, so the two guards that led that charge are getting stars tonight. Third Star: Jason Kidd (14 points, 4-of-6 from three) His line isn’t that impressive, but it’s really…

  19. Three Stars of the Night: Three huge games, one huge hairdo

    Nov 15, 2012, 2:00 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum hair

    There were some fantastic performances on the court Wednesday night, but if you want to know what people were buzzing about on twitter it was that photo to the right — Andrew Bynum’s hair. Which I can’t describe, but it’s buzz worthy. I think the face of the guy to Bynum’s left really says it…

  20. Baseline to Baseline recaps: It’s all about the Boston offense

    Nov 13, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Bass, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while being scared by the idea of a Hillary Clinton decorating show…. Jazz 140, Raptors 133 (3OT): Utah got its first road win but the Raptors made them really work for it — they needed the second three of Al Jefferson’s…

  21. Bynum says not practicing until December not a setback, he’s on schedule

    Nov 12, 2012, 8:57 PM EDT

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    So, apparently he was just on a much, much slower schedule than anyone realized. Andrew Bynum is not going to able to practice with the Sixers until around Dec. 10, and it will be a couple of weeks after that before he is back on the court. So we’re talking maybe Christmas. But he says…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  23. Andrew Bynum could be out until around Christmas

    Nov 12, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    It’s a pattern that just feels all too familiar for him — the timetable for Andrew Bynum’s debut with the 76ers has been pushed back as he recovers from knee issues. After a fresh MRI, the Philadelphia 76ers announced Monday that Bynum would not be cleared to be involved with “normal basketball activity” — what…

  24. Sixers not providing updates on status of Andrew Bynum

    Nov 11, 2012, 6:01 PM EDT

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

    When the Sixers traded away Andre Iguodala in a deal that brought them All-Star center Andrew Bynum, they envisioned an improved team anchored by a big man that would be a foundation in Philadelphia for seasons to come. The future may still be a bright one for Bynum there, but he has yet to make…

  25. Firing Mike Brown not just the right decision, it was the only decision

    Nov 9, 2012, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike Brown

    When the Lakers relieved head coach Mike Brown of his duties on Friday morning, legitimate questions about the timing of such a major decision were certain to arise. Why now? Isn’t the team overreacting a bit after just five games? The short answers are one, because it was clear that this was going to get…
