  1. Ed Snider: Andre Iguodala hasn’t asked to be traded

    May 17, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala isn’t sure where he is going to play next year. Well, he said he was looking forward to being back in the NBA, but that’s a little vague. The Sixers may or may not be that place, but he’s not pushing his way out. That’s what Ed Snider — the chairman of Comcast-Spectacor that…

  2. Report: Sixers looking to trade Iguodala this summer

    May 8, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    At the end of the season, Andre Iguodala was asked if he looked forward to playing with the 76ers next season, and his response was surprisingly vague for such a softball question. Here is what he told Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “I expect to be back in the NBA,” Iguodala said after the…

  3. Andre Iguodala excused from exit meeting with Sixers

    Apr 28, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    It’s part of the end of season ritual in the NBA, whether you win a championship or have racked up the most Ping-Pong balls in the lottery. A day or two after your season ends you clean out the locker, then you have a meeting with the coach and usually the general manager. You all…

  4. NBA Playoffs: Heat will close out tonight or regret it Sunday

    Apr 27, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat are going to close out this series tonight. Sure, in theory in one game anything can happen (the NCAA bases a whole basketball tournament around that theory). Even Burnie (the Heat mascot you didn’t know had a name) will admit this Heat team is fully capable of playing a lazy, terrible game…

  5. Sixers’ Iguodala’s knee pain has been worse than he’s let on

    Apr 27, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    Andre Iguodala has struggled through the playoffs. The most explosive wing player on Philadelphia has shot just 31.6 percent overall and 25 percent from three. He is averaging only 8.8 points per game. He has looked like a shell of the guy who won gold with Team USA in Turkey last summer. That guy looked…

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    This may have been the pinnacle of the Philadelphia season. This is a pretty good team overmatched in the first round, but on Sunday they were the team that executed better with the game on the line. Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were missing shots and defending poorly while Jrue Holiday and Lou Williams were…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Philly earns itself one more game this season. One.

    Apr 24, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    If you believed in conspiracy theories, you could say that Miami is going to make a lot of extra money out of the extra home date for a Game 5 Tuesday. We’re not that guy. We think Miami came out flat as a lot of teams do up 3-0 and let the Philadelphia hang around…

  8. NBA Playoffs: 76ers playing for pride, Heat for days off

    Apr 24, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat shooting guard Wade and James speak during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff series in Miami

    This series has played out exactly like the regular season for the Miami Heat. They overwhelmed lesser teams where they had more talent, the real tests were against the other elite teams where they struggled at times. The Heat have simply overwhelmed the Philadelphia 76ers on their way to a 3-0 series lead, but the…

  9. Video: LeBron James stumbling, bumbling assist to Wade

    Apr 22, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    Miami Heat forward James grimaces on the floor while playing against Philadelphia 76ers in Philadelphia

    There are no style points in the NBA. It’s wins and losses, it’s results. And at the end of the day this is an assist for LeBron James and two points for Dwyane Wade that the team needed in going up 3-0 on the Philadelphia 76ers. Whether or not James is stumbling, it’s still pretty…

  10. NBA Playoffs: Now or never for 76ers in Game 3

    Apr 21, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a pretty good team who could pose a threat to some upper echelon Eastern Conference teams in the first round. Miami is not one of them. The Sixers lack the ability to pound the Heat inside where they are soft. Philly also relies on getting out and running a little, getting…

  11. Video: LeBron James, Miami Heat putting on a little show for fans

    Apr 19, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Philadelphia 76ers have a problem — they really need to get out and run and get some easy buckets in transition to stand a chance in this series, but the Heat are more comfortable and just flat out better at an uptempo game. It’s a Catch-22 for them. As evidence, we bring you LeBron…

  12. NBA Playoffs: Heat crush Sixers, leave no doubt in Game 2

    Apr 18, 2011, 11:01 PM EDT

    wade-game-2

    In Game 1 against the Heat, the Sixers jumped out to a 14-point second-quarter lead, before coming back furiously from a 16-point deficit late in the fourth to have a chance to steal one in Miami. In Game 2, however, there was no such fight. Philadelphia’s shaky offense came back to the mean, and couldn’t…

  13. NBA Playoffs: Can Philly do more than keep it close in Miami?

    Apr 18, 2011, 5:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James gestures after being fouled in NBA basketball playoff action against the Philadelphia 76ers in Miami

    Prediction: LeBron James is going to break out in Game 2. LeBron had a quiet 21 points in Game 1, but was just 4-of-14 shooting. He was more passive than normal, early on in the game he was patiently waiting for the double team to come so he could pass out of it. Don’t expect…

  14. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

  15. Video: Dwight Howard’s ally-opp on Jrue Holiday’s head

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard said as he started to take off he told Jrue Holiday not to jump. Their both Adidas guys, Howard didn’t want to embarrass him. Howard was going to throw down a monster dunk and he knew it. All credit to Holiday for trying, for getting back on defense and making the effort to…

  16. Elton Brand has been playing with hand fracture

    Apr 5, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    BRAND_ELTON

    The New York Times’ Jonathan Abrams has the story: Elton Brand, who is experiencing a resurgent season with the surprising Philadelphia 76ers, has played nearly a month with a fracture in his left hand. The fracture was originally disclosed as an injury that would not prohibit Brand from playing, apparently out of concern that some…

  17. Sixers Lou Williams out for rest of regular season

    Apr 4, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    The Sixers — the one team in the bottom half of the East standings that can make a real series out of the first round — are not the same without Lou Williams off the bench. He is the best one-on-one player that team has. Sorry Iggy. But if the game is on the line…

  18. Sixers win, and are in

    Apr 2, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Philadelphia 76ers started the season 3-13. It was a disaster. It was time to blow it up, finally. Ed Stefanski was having his job called for. It was an unmitigated disaster. Then, they got better. Last night in a win over the Nets, the Sixers clinched a spot in the playoffs. Doug Collins has…

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    The big story in Philly: Lou Williams and some others Sixers went to the Lil’ Wayne concert Saturday night before a noon-tipoff Sunday against the Kings. And the Sixers lost and some fans are blaming the night out (even though Jrue Holiday went and played well). This is mostly about Williams off shooting day, and…

  20. Video: Lou Williams three sends game to overtime for Sixers

    Mar 28, 2011, 8:18 AM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    There was a time, early in the season, when we wondered when the Sixers would start executing and making plays a the end of game and win a few close ones. Well, they are doing it quite well now. Even if it didn’t come out as planned here. Watch Lou Williams execute here, knocking down…

  21. Marcus Thornton does it again

    Mar 27, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Thornton_Marcus

    The Kings have very little left to play for. The season has been a disaster from the get-go, with Tyreke Evans struggling through injury all season, the team chafing at DeMarcus Cousins’ immaturity, and the coaching staff looking lost at time. But perhaps the brightest spot outside of Cousins’ play has been the emergence of…

  22. Iggy says LeBron has peeled back on his intensity, physically

    Mar 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala was asked Friday if he’d noticed any changes in LeBron James‘ game since joining the Heat. His answer wasn’t what you’d expect: “I’ve only noticed one small thing,” Iguodala said before taking time to find the right words. “I shouldn’t say he doesn’t jump as high, because he does jump as high,” Iguodala…

  23. Wade’s stat stuffing brings Heat closer to 2nd seed

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Heat brought it in the fourth against what you may not know is a surprisingly good Philadelphia 76ers squad in a 111-99 win. Sure, they’re not going to be headlining any Sunday afternoon nationally televised romps, but Doug Collins has put together a good team with solid chemistry, role players that can produce and…

  24. Blake Griffin is not gonna take it. No, he ain’t gonna take it. Anymore.

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin, you want to know how you’ve really made it? When opposing bloggers — like Liberty Ballers Wednesday night — write things like this about you: Griffin flopped and bitched the entire night en route to a disappointing 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 fouls. Both Elton Brand and the Sixers’ team defense/gameplan deserve…

  25. Video: Andre Iguodala is scaring rims

    Mar 9, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala had an off game by his recent standards. Oh, sure he had 16 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds — but he had triple doubles the two games before this. He is clearly slacking. The Sixers didn’t need his quite as much Tuesday as they rolled past the Indiana Pacers, but he still…
