Philadelphia 76ers

  1. The Blazers, the Sixers, the Pistons, rebuilding and you

    Nov 14, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

    iggy

    It sits there on your desk, staring at you. Just a big red button. It doesn’t implore you, it doesn’t call out to you, it’s just a button. But you can’t help but glance at it with the first few losses. Then more and more, you stare. Your mind is racing with what to do.…

  2. Andres Nocioni fined $25K for throwing mouthpiece

    Nov 11, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni,

    Frankly, this whole story is gross. Andres Nocioni, in frustration during the Sixers loss to the Thunder Wednesday night, threw his mouthpiece into the stands. Then apparently he wanted it back, and a Sixers employee had to go retrieve it, according to Liberty Ballers. Thursday the league announced a $25,000 fine for Nocioni for throwing…

  3. Sixers Lou Williams has separated shoulder, now day-to-day

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:48 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    Lou Williams has been the Sixers scoring spark off the bench, giving the Sixers 16.4 points per game with a true shooting percentage of 56.4 and a PER of 20. He has filled the role very well. But he has had a setback now, a dislocated AC joint shoulder that has him listed as day-to-day,…

  4. Report: Hornets looking at trades, even called about Iguodala

    Nov 10, 2010, 3:47 PM EDT

    new-orleans-hornets logo

    While we’re all marveling at the transformation we see in New Orleans, let’s not pretend that they are testing the Lakers — or likely even the Spurs or Mavericks — come the playoffs. The Hornets are much better, but not elite or really on that next tier yet. The Hornets front office gets that, too.…

  5. Baseline to Baseline (your game recaps): Lazy Sunday

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:55 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    What you missed while you were burning Wayne Rooney in effigy…. Lakers 121 Blazers 96: I was going to give you a great big recap of this game. I was going to do slide shows and video and show the intricacies of this matchup. I was going to give you something really enjoyable to read.…

  6. Andre Igoudala leaves game with strained Achilles

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:03 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala’s 252-game starting streak is in jepoardy. Iguodala strained his right Achilles tendon during the first half of the Sixers loss to the Cavaliers Friday night and did not play in the second half. After the game coach Doug Collins said that the injury was not serious. However, Iguodala’s status for Sunday at the…

  7. Free Lou Williams?

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:09 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    Kevin Love averages just 26 minutes a game, and the world is outraged. How could Kurt Rambis leave an elite rebounder and promising young big man on the bench for the pitiful Timberwolves? How dare he play Wesley Johnson, Michael Beasley, and Anthony Tolliver — all lesser talents than Love at this juncture — instead…

  8. Sixers coach Doug Collins does not coach second half due to vertigo

    Nov 4, 2010, 8:01 AM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    UPDATE Nov. 4, 8:01 am: Collins explained what happened to the Philadelphia Daily News after the game: “I had another one of those bouts that I had the other day,” said Collins, who spent the second half lying on the trainer’s table in the locker room. “I can’t take my medicine on days of games…

  9. Game of the Night: John Wall vs. Evan Turner turns out to be about Andray Blatche

    Nov 3, 2010, 3:43 AM EDT

    Wall_celebrates

    We tuned in to see John Wall matched up on Evan Turner — and we got a little of that late in the game. But it ended up being about a lot more. It ended up being about Andray Blatche finding the guy from the end of last season. It ended up being about whether…

  10. Challenge in Philadelphia: learning how to win

    Oct 31, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    Interesting note today from Kate Fagan at Philly.com on this year’s 0-3 Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers coach Doug Collins offered this statistic after the game (which he said he shared with his team as well): No player on the Sixers roster has a winning record as a professional. That actually struck me as quite amazing. Obviously…

  11. Report: Andre Iguodala wants winning or a trade out of Philadelphia

    Oct 30, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Philadelphia has been unimpressive so far this season, two losses and generally looking pretty blah. You’ve got new head coach Doug Collins saying, “there’s more work to be done here than I thought.” Fans are down o the team. It’s not good. After spending the summer with USA Basketball, Andre Iguodala is not down with…

  12. Winderman: Contraction not a bad idea, just bad negotiations

    Oct 28, 2010, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Contraction as collective-bargaining threat is lamentable on so many levels. In does little to advance the process, offers a solution to nothing. But contraction as a means toward competitive renewal? It is an option that should not be summarily dismissed, albeit one better debated at a time other than amid the expiration of a CBA.…

  13. Heat do not sell out Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia

    Oct 27, 2010, 11:51 PM EDT

    Heat_bench

    Even in down years in a slow market, there are certain teams that just sell out NBA buildings. When the Lakers come to your city, the building is full. Same with the Celtics. The Heat are supposed to be one of those teams. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh together? A guaranteed sell out,…

  14. Allen Iverson to sign deal with Besiktas Cola Turka

    Oct 24, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Last we heard, our dear friend Allen Iverson was negotiating a potential contract with Besiktas Cola Turka, an Istanbul-based team of the Turkish Basketball League. “Penalties” embedded in the contract were the reported hang-up between Iverson and Turka but something had to give for A.I. to play basketball in Europe next season, and give it…

  15. Dunktastic: Jrue Holiday over Anthony Randolph

    Oct 21, 2010, 1:34 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday is quick with the ball. The Knicks Anthony Randolph can be a bit slow on defensive recognition and rotations. Combine those two and you have a dunk that Randolph will be reminded of for a while, preseason game or not. Oh, and don’t sleep on Holiday people, he can flat out ball. (Man…

  16. Doug Collins to miss tonight’s game, return to Sixers practice on Friday

    Oct 20, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    DCollins_TYoung

    Doug Collins is going to miss the final Philadelphia 76ers preseason game tonight. Not because watching Evan Turner shoot is hard to bear — although at 31.8 percent shooting for the preseason it’s not helping — but because he is still recovering from symptoms of a concussion that forced him to miss Philly’s preseason loss…

  17. Sixers coach Doug Collins to miss game with concussion symptoms

    Oct 19, 2010, 12:07 PM EDT

    Image (1) Dcollins-thumb-250x313-11841.jpg for post 2034

    Plenty of talk about concussions in sports these days, particularly in Philadelphia. Although not really so much in the NBA. And not with coaches. But we have our first in that department now — Philadelphia’s Doug Collins will not coach tonight’s Sixers preseason game as he stays home to rest concussion symptoms, a recurrence of…

  18. Carmelo still wants to be traded… but not to Clippers or 76ers

    Oct 15, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    Anthony_Kaman

    All’s quiet on the Carmelo Anthony trade front. And Anthony is not happy about that, according to a Denver Post source. You couldn’t tell it on the court — he scored 30 and was one assist shy of a triple-double against the Clippers Thursday — but he wants out. So long as out isn’t to…

  19. Jrue Holliday with the rare preseason triple-double

    Oct 14, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    jholliday

    The Sixers may be struggling to find an identity this preseason, but Jrue Holliday seemed comfortable against the Raptors. Holiday put up the rare preseason triple-double — 18 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. He was aggressive and attacking, and had just two turnovers. Yes, he played 46 minutes of a double-overtime game (Toronto won…

  20. Marreese Speights strains hamstring

    Oct 14, 2010, 8:23 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New Jersey Nets

    Just what the Sixers needed — another big man down. Marreese Speights left the team’s preseason game against the Raptors in the third quarter with what has been termed a strained hamstring, according to Philly.com’s Kate Fagan. Speights was trying to save a ball from going out of bounds when he stepped awkwardly. He instantly…

  21. Spencer Hawes in danger of missing Sixers’ opener with back problem

    Oct 13, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Image (1) sixers-logo-thumb-250x250-11402.jpg for post 1905

    Spencer Hawes is going to be pivotal for the Sixers this season — he’s been brought in from Sacramento and asked to provide all the defense and rebounding that Samuel Dalembert did, plus some of the offense he did not. Hawes may not be doing that for the season opener. Back issues have kept Hawes…

  22. A funny thing happened on the way to a Sixer win

    Oct 9, 2010, 6:53 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New Jersey Nets

    So this is a preseason game, which is why we can all laugh at this, even Sixers fans. Okay, maybe not Sixers fans. The Sixers and Nets played a preseason game this afternoon, and the Sixers ran away with it. They were up 17 in the fourth, and by 7 with 15.2 seconds left. A…

  23. Sixers Evan Turner to come off the bench

    Oct 5, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    He’s the No. 2 overall pick from the last draft, and he is now the No. 2 shooting guard on his own team. After looking at a variety of options — including the bad idea of Evan Turner the point guard — Philly coach Doug Collins has decided to bring Turner off the bench, according…

  24. Rookie hazing alive and well in NBA camps

    Oct 5, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Nobody yet has had to buy a $55,000 dinner for teammates, but there has been plenty of rookie hazing going on at NBA camps. Mostly of the “where are the team donuts” variety. Harmless stuff. Fortunately. If you catch Paul George or Lance Stephenson walking around with the Pacers this season going into an arena,…

  25. So, the Sixers are trying Evan Turner out at point guard. Yeah, it blows our mind, too.

    Oct 2, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    I’m not going to waste your time with a workup of an intro. Let’s just get into the meat on this one, okay? The Sixers were in training camp and put Evan Turner and Lou Williams in the backcourt for the second team. Makes sense. You would have thought Turner might wind up on the…
