    If you are looking for Sixers info, we’re here to help. A little. Sixers CEO Adam Aron swung on by CSNPhilly.com for the Lunch Break segment and let out a few details. Like if you were a better man you might bet on Jan. 6 being the first Philly home game (which is tough, the…

  2. Is Thaddeus Young worth a big free agent contract?

    Nov 29, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Thaddeus young

    If you are a general manager looking for a guy to gamble on in this free agency period, Thaddeus Young might be the call. He is 22, can play either forward spot, is an athletic slasher with the ball and can finish around the rim, last season showed more mature selection, plus he can defend.…

  3. Dr. J gets financial boost, 76ers (and fans) get memorabilia

    erving

    We brought the story last month of how Julius Erving was having some financial challenges due to some failed investments, and on an unrelated note happened to be having a lot of his memorabilia auctioned off. “Unrelated” is the official story, choose to believe what seems logical to you. Turns out there is a real…

  4. Hip Hop is dead. (The 76ers mascot, we mean.)

    Nov 22, 2011, 8:39 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen Hip Hop 76ers

    Hip Hop is dead. The 76ers anthropomorphized rabbit mascot named Hip Hop who came on the scene in the Allen Iverson era to the thrill of nobody has gone the way of the Dodo bird. The new owners of the 76ers surveyed their season ticket holders and were looking for ways to improve the game-night…

  5. Report: Employees of Nets, 76ers told to get ready to work

    Oct 28, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    There are times I feel like we are going a little Fox Mulder with the lockout, trying to find signs that it is about to end where no such sign exists. And then there are things that just hit you over the head. Like the emails sent to employees of the Nets and 76ers, as…

  6. Much of Dr. J’s personal memorabilia up for auction

    Oct 25, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    erving

    Does it make anyone else sad when a famed pro athlete auctions off a lot of his memorabilia? Julius Erving — who you remember best as Dr. J. doing a scoop shot in the finals for the Sixers — is doing just that, according to the Atlanta Journal Consitition (via Ball Don’t Lie). The majority…

  7. Should the Sixers use the “amnesty clause” on Elton Brand?

    Oct 24, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT

    Elton Brand

    Elton Brand has been a let down to fans in Philadelphia. A max deal guy not playing up to his standards in a tough town. His first year there he played just 29 games due to injury. His second season he was back for 76 games but was just average, not fully recovered and stuck…

  8. Fresh Prince of Society Hill: Will Smith buys part of 76ers

    Oct 18, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    Will+Smith

    Now we have four rappers who are part owners of NBA teams. Still only one that anyone talks about, but four total. Will Smith — rapper, actor, the Fresh Prince himself — and his wife Jada Pinkett are now minority owners of the Philadelphia 76ers, it was announced at the introductory press conference for the…

  9. New Sixers owners cutting ticket prices in half for 9,000 seats

    Oct 18, 2011, 1:34 PM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    I had thought that when Arte Moreno bought the Anaheim Angels (as they were then called) and at his introductory press conference announced a cut in beer prices, that was the best start ever by an owner. Well, it is. But this is a close second. Sixers owner Joshua Harris came in at his introductory…

  10. League makes official what we already knew: 76ers have been sold

    Oct 18, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    Next Wednesday and Thursday, the NBA Board of Governors — all of the owners — are going to get together and most of the talk will be about labor deals and revenue sharing. But there will be one other order of business — approving the sale of the Philadelphia 76ers to Joshua Harris and other…

    Philadelphia 76ers fans were high fiving each other when it was announced a few months back that Ed Snider and Comcast-Spectactor announced they were selling the team to Joshua Harris and a team of investors. Snider was seen as a guy who loved hockey and the Flyers, and happened to own the 76ers, too. But…

  13. Evan Turner likes his jump shot a lot more than he used to

    Sep 7, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    For a guy the 76ers pictured as their shooting guard of the future, Evan Turner struggled with the shooting part of that job his rookie year. He shot 37.1 percent from three to nine feet out, 37.6 percent form 10 to 15 feet, 37 percent from 16 feet to the arc and 31.8 percent from…

  14. Andre Iguodala and Doug Collins are all good. Seriously.

    Aug 31, 2011, 1:19 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Why do you think Andre Iguodala and Doug Collins don’t get along? Because Iggy sounded like a guy who wanted out after the season? Because he’s been on the trade block? General body language? You are way off base. That’s what Iguodala himself is saying. He spoke with Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer and…

  15. Get to know me: Joshua Harris (soon to be 76ers owner)

    Aug 2, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    This has been the general reaction of Sixers fans to the team being sold (the other NBA owners just need to approve it): “Good, Ed Snider only cared about hockey… wait, who is buying the team?” The answer is Joshua Harris. Which leads to the next question, who is Joshua Harris? Kate Fagan delves into…

  16. Iguodala says he’s not playing overseas during lockout

    Jul 28, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    We’re pretty weary of the “will he or won’t he” game with guys going overseas. But we’re still passing along stuff from the big names guys, because that’s what we do here. With that, Andre Iguodala looks like he’s staying put, according to a tweet from Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Andre Iguodala has…

  18. 76ers Holiday in Germany pulling for USA Women in World Cup

    Jul 13, 2011, 11:43 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, JaVale McGee

    You may be watching the USA vs. France Women’s World Cup semi-final Wednesday — what else are you going to do, watch Criminal Minds reruns? — but you are not as dedicated as Sixers point guard Jrue Holiday. Holiday is there, in Germany, cheering on the USA Women’s national team team. Of course, a lot…

  21. One factor in Iguodala rumors: Who owns the team?

    Jun 9, 2011, 6:20 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andrea Iguodala is being traded to the Clippers. Or the Warriors. Or the Magic. Or probably 26 other teams who have inquired about the services of one of the best perimeter defenders in the league. There is an assumption that the Sixers are going to move Iggy. With that, any smart GM would at least…

    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…
