  1. Sixers Lou Williams to sit out back-to-back

    Dec 26, 2010, 5:30 PM EST

    The Sixers best player off the bench — guard Lou Williams — is getting the greatest Christmas gift of all: a new baby daughter. Because of that, he has been given off the Sunday and Monday back-to-back for the Sixers, according to Comcast Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz (on twitter). Sunday the Sixers play Denver, Monday…

  2. Knicks may be interested in Iguodala, Gibson, Varejao

    Dec 21, 2010, 6:16 PM EST

    Boobie Gibson

    It’s no secret that the Knicks are hoping and expecting to land Carmelo Anthony before the February 24th trade deadline. However, it looks like the Nuggets may prefer to deal with the Nets, who can offer the Nuggets more than the Knicks can. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, the Knicks aren’t planning to sit…

  3. Report: Magic call about Knicks Ronny Turiaf as backup center

    Dec 20, 2010, 3:11 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    One of the clear issues for the Magic after their weekend mega-trades (or at least mega-salary trades) was at backup center. They went from having one of the best in the league with Marcin Gortat, to having Earl Clark. Which is tough in a conference where you want to beat the Boston Celtics. The Magic…

  4. Video: Kevin Garnett with the game winner. Thanks Rondo.

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:12 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 4

    It was an interesting play call. With the game on the line the Celtics got the ball to Rondo, ran Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett up to set screens, and when Rondo went right he didn’t try to drive the lane, he waited for the expected switch (everybody switches late in games) so that Jrue…

  5. Rajon Rondo to play, Shaq to sit for Celtics Thursday

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EST

    Oneal_peace

    Remember all that talk about resting Rajon Rondo’s sore hamstring and him taking some games off? Forget we ever said that. What we meant was Shaquille O’Neal was going to take a night off. That is what is happening Thursday against Philadelphia — Rondo is in and Shaq is out. Paul Pierce also is going…

  6. As expected, Sixers deny rumors they are shopping Iguodala

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:01 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    This was expected. Like the baseball Hall of Fame snubbing Marvin Miller or Brett Favre looking old, there are some things you just know are going to happen in sports. So when the rumors surfaced that the Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala around, you knew the denial was not far behind. It wasn’t, and Phillyburbs.com…

  7. Report: Sixers are shopping Andre Iguodala

    Dec 5, 2010, 3:07 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala is prepared for it. Now it appears to be happening. Slowly. The Ohio Morning Journal reports that the Sixers are shopping the wingman around. That would not be a shock to anyone, but the Sixers have been publically mum on the idea (or said it’s not happening), especially as they have won three…

  8. If you’re going to foul Andre Iguodala, do it right

    Dec 5, 2010, 9:14 AM EST

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala is one of the league’s better finishers on the break. With that in mind, note to Gerald Wallace — if you’re going to foul him to prevent the dunk, wrap him up early. Because if you just kind of push Iguodala once he’s in the air you’re going to end up on a…

  9. Rumors surfacing that Iverson wants out of Turkey. He denies it.

    Dec 4, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    iverson-turkey

    UPDATE 10:00 pm: Iverson on his twitter account denies these rumors, saying he is enjoying the experience and building good chemistry with his teammates. What else is he going to say? You can choose to believe whatever you wish here, the “answer” will come with his actions soon enough. 9:30 pm: What was the under/over…

  10. Evan Turner out of the Sixers starting lineup

    Dec 3, 2010, 3:51 PM EST

    Evan Turner, Anthony Parker

    Evan Turner is still adjusting, still trying to find his way. Especially since the return of Andre Iguodala. For the last dozen games he was getting the chance to figure it all out as part of the starting lineup for Philadelphia, but no more. Tonight he comes off the bench and Jodie Meeks or Andres…

  11. Heat’s love affair with the long two-pointer strangling offense

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    Miami got back in the win column Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. But the numbers from the winning box score are still jarring. The Heat took 31 shots from 16 feet out to the three-point line — those are long two pointers, the least efficient shot in the game — and another 16 shots…

  12. Andre Iguodala “prepared” to be traded

    Nov 27, 2010, 9:49 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Philadelphia 76ers

    Andre Iguodala’s not saying, he’s just “sayin.” As the Sixers continue to spin wildly out of control (3-13), the odds of a full scale detonation of the roster (long overdue) seems more and more likely. And from how Iggy was talking when he spoke with NBA FanHouse, it won’t be long before he’s filling out…

  13. Elton Brand ejected after one ugly flagrant two, fine coming

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:57 PM EST

    Elton Brand is going to be writing a check to the league soon. In the fourth quarter of the Sixers overtime loss to the Wizards (which never should have gone to overtime, but check out Baseline to Baseline later for that story), JaVale McGee had a wide open dunk and once he was in the…

  14. John Wall game-time decision to get back on court tonight

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:05 PM EST

    Wall_dunk

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said. 11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the…

  15. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Nov 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EST

    Moses Malone and Julius Erving watch the game

    It was where Dr. J soared, where Charles Barkley banged and balled, where the fans were close and let the players know it. From both teams. It’s where the Philadelphia Flyers pummeled everyone they could, where more concerts took place than can be remembered. And now, the Philadelphia Spectrum is no more. Today a wrecking…

  16. Tom Thibodeau helped make Kobe Bryant the player he is today

    Nov 23, 2010, 9:33 AM EST

    Thibodeau_Bryant

    Tonight the Chicago Bulls roll into Los Angeles and Kobe Bryant will try to do to them what he does to every team that rolls through — mercilessly destroy them. But Kobe likely would not be in this position, not be the player he is today, without Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. In a fascinating story…

  17. Iguodala, still nursing Achilles, will sit Tuesday against Cavaliers

    Nov 16, 2010, 3:07 PM EST

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala has a lingering right Achilles tendon issue that has kept him out of a couple of games and some practices lately. You can add Tuesday night’s Sixers/Cavaliers matchup to the list. He had to leave practice early because of soreness Monday and will now sit out Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Andres…

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

    Nov 14, 2010, 10:28 AM EST

    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.…

  19. Andres Nocioni fined $25K for throwing mouthpiece

    Nov 11, 2010, 6:55 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 11, 2010, 3:48 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Nov 10, 2010, 3:47 PM EST

    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.…

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

    Nov 8, 2010, 1:55 AM EST

    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.…

  23. Andre Igoudala leaves game with strained Achilles

    Nov 5, 2010, 11:03 PM EST

    Image (1) iguodala_game-thumb-250x350-6178.jpg for post 395

    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…

  24. Free Lou Williams?

    Nov 5, 2010, 3:09 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 4, 2010, 8:01 AM EST

    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…
