  1. 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…

  2. Video: Lou Williams dagger three to beat Heat

    Apr 25, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    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…

  3. NBA Playoffs: Chris Bosh leads Heat to Game 1 win over the Sixers

    Apr 16, 2011, 8:18 PM EDT

    bosh-heat-sixers-game-1

    It wasn’t easy for the Miami Heat from the opening tip, and they made it perhaps more difficult than necessary down the stretch. But when all was said and done, Miami pulled away with a well-earned 97-89 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 1 of the 2011 playoffs. And in a game where Philadelphia…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Andre Iguodala has got it going on. Again.

    Mar 7, 2011, 7:07 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    What you missed while staring at the earth’s two suns…. The Bulls beating the Heat and the Lakers thumping the Spurs were our two games of the day Sunday. In other action: Sixers 125, Warriors 117 (OT): Teams often exit Warriors games with gaudy statistics, so we’ll chalk Evan Turner’s 20 points up to that.…

  10. John Wall is one frustrated Wizard

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:28 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, John Wall

    “Until we find five guys that really want to fight, compete and care the whole time, it’s really going to be tough.” That was John Wall’s post-game comment after the Wizards got smoked by the Sixers Wednesday night. He’s frustrated. Good. He should be frustrated. If he were comfortable losing that would be a bigger…

  11. Former Sixer GM, current Magic executive Pat Williams diagnosed with cancer

    Feb 15, 2011, 8:04 PM EDT

    Pat-Williams-photo

    The Orlando Magic’s Pat Williams, one of the better known and more popular NBA executives around the league, has been diagnosed with cancer, the team announced Tuesday. Williams was the Philadelphia 76ers general manager for a dozen seasons through the 1970s and ‘80s, then went on to be part of the team that founded the…

  12. Report: Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand unlikely to be traded

    Jan 25, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a better team than you think. Back 16 games into the season, when the Sixers were 3-13, there was a lot of talk about roster shakeups. Remember Andre Iguodala getting dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade morass? There were calls (and maybe plans) to get Iguodala and Elton Brand out of…

  13. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  14. Video: Turns out, Lou Williams can rap

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    There are no shortage of NBA players who think they are rappers (and no shortage of MCs who think they can ball). Usually, this ends in disaster. Right, Kobe? But the Sixers sixth man Lou Williams…. not bad. Not bad at all.

  15. Video: Iggy’s no-look pass on the break

    Jan 12, 2011, 3:17 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala was back from injury last night, and looked a little rusty. That’s the 0-7 shooting part. But the Sixers are glad to have him because they need him, in part because he is such a threat in transition. Not just with the scoring (he can do that, too) but check out the pass…

  16. Don’t look now, but Jrue Holiday is hot

    Jan 6, 2011, 11:44 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, JaVale McGee

    Jrue Holiday outdueled the celebrated John Wall Wednesday night. Holiday, the sophomore, put up 26 points and had 9 assists, leading the Sixers to a win. That got some attention, but this isn’t a one-time thing, in his last seven games Holiday has averaged 20.2 points on 56 percent shooting, and 7.4 assists. What happened?…

  17. Iguodala out five games with Achilles tendinitis

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    A sore Achilles has hampered the Sixers Andre Iguodala all season, as a result he has been less explosive, which has led to a drop in shooting percentage (and with it scoring). He’s just not the same dynamic player. After missing the last two games due to Achilles tendinitis, the Sixers have announced that Iguodala…

  18. Steve Nash has an angry side

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Maybe it’s that stable Canadian upbringing, but Steve Nash is one of the most even-tempered guys in the league. Which is why when he loses it, you take notice. The Suns were not getting the breaks or calls late in Wednesday night’s loss to the Sixers — and that was a fourth straight loss for…

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

    Dec 26, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    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…

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

    Dec 20, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 10, 2010, 8:12 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 9, 2010, 7:14 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Nov 23, 2010, 10:57 PM EDT

    Image (1) elton_brand-thumb-250x222-21344.jpg for post 4402

    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…

  25. Philadelphia Spectrum goes under the wrecking ball

    Nov 23, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    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…
