    Remember when Tony Wroten said Michael Jordan personally called to apologize for his Jordan 10s failing? Yeah, turns out it never happened.

  6. Tony Wroten drops Ray McCallum to the floor with the killer crossover (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:55 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    Normally posting video of one player dropping another with a crossover if it only leads to a missed shot is a bit gauche, but in this case, it’s worth making the exception. Tony Wroten seems to mystify Kings rookie Ray McCallum here, and McCallum trips over himself trying to keep up. Again, Wroten should have…

  7. Monday NBA grades: Blake Griffin shows off his jumper (and yes, he can still dunk)

    Mar 11, 2014, 3:20 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    Blake Griffin is good at basketball. Also: Kyle Korver can still shoot.

  8. Sixers’ Tony Wroten hits 3/4-court shots in consecutive games (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    tony wroten

    Normally I think shots from half-court or longer aren’t worth the highlight, unless of course it’s a game-winner or something like that. It’s just that while plenty of NBA players can hit ‘em, they’re such low-percentage looks that they’re usually more about luck than they are about skill. Tony Wroten, however, got lucky two nights…

  9. The Extra Pass: Seven young players to watch in 2014

    Jan 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    One of the best parts of the NBA is watching the young talent emerge, some guys you expected to be good but others that came out of left field. Along those lines, here are seven players to watch as they start to break out and find their way in their first couple NBA seasons. Anthony…

  10. Tony Wroten warned for flopping

    Dec 17, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten, Steve Novak

    The NBA warned Tony Wroten for flopping, and he deserved it. Here’s video (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward): Wroten was wide open when he shot, and he still fell. He clearly stuck his foot out to either draw contact or lose his balance. It’s the type of play that could get someone injured.…

  11. Watch DeAndre Jordan get the Los Angeles ripped off his jersey (VIDEO)

    Dec 10, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    Not sure I have ever seen this before. Early in the Clippers eventual easy win over the Sixers Chris Paul puts up a shot and because DeAndre Jordan‘s man had rotated over to help on the drive it left Tony Wroten — all 6’5″, 205 five of him — trying to keep Jordan off the…

  12. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

    James Anderson

    Our grades from Wednesday around the NBA, or what you missed while watching a man attack a taxi with a didgeridoo…  Tony Wroten, Philadelphia 76ers. Rookie sensation Michael Carter-Williams was out and Wroten got thrown in the fire with his first ever start against Houston — and he responded with a triple double. Wroten finished…

  14. Sixers’ Tony Wroten with the monster rejection against Derrick Rose (VIDEO)

    Nov 3, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    It’s not often that Derrick Rose is on the wrong side of these types of highlights, but given the way the Sixers erased the Bulls’ 18-point third quarter lead to come away with their third straight victory to start the season, the guys on the tam who made it happen deserve a little shine. Rose…

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Last season: After totaling up 56 wins in the regular season, the Memphis Grizzlies got sweet revenge over the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round, then extinguished a short-handed Oklahoma City Thunder team before finally falling to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. This was the best season in franchise history by a large…

  16. Brett Brown: 76ers’ have just six NBA players

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Brett Brown, Daniel Orton

    Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

  17. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:02 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Last season: The 76ers went 34-48, the 11th time in the last 12 seasons they won between 33 and 48 games. They made the playoffs most seasons during that span, but they only one two postseason series. With the emergence of the NBA’s second-youngest All-Star last year, Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia seemed like it had a…

  18. 76ers sign Darius Morris, he is likely to make squad

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Darius Morris

    Darius Morris couldn’t crack Mike D’Antoni’s tight rotation last season with the Lakers. He played sparingly until injuries in the playoffs forced D’Antoni’s hand and Morris started Game 3 against the Spurs in the first round. Morris put up 24 points (on just 15 shots) and had six assists, but he got torched at the…

  19. Sixers need to add $10 million in salary to make minimum

    Aug 23, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    We talk a lot about the salary cap and luxury tax on this site, the numbers farther up the NBA play ladder, but there is a floor, too — teams need to have at least 90 percent of the salary cap filled, or $52.81 million on the books this season. With the addition of Tony…

  20. Report: Grizzlies trade Tony Wroten to Sixers for picks

    Aug 22, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    Tony Wroten

    Tony Wroten is a guy whose game has started to mature the more you watched him — he showed flashes at Summer League in Las Vegas this year, putting up some nice games (23 points one night) and setting guys up. But he’s still not an efficient shooter, he still turns the ball over a…

    LAS VEGAS — Summer League entered the Tournament phase on Wednesday, which really didn’t feel any different yet than the rest of Summer League.

  23. Spencer Hawes, other players fined by league for playing in Washington alumni game

    Jul 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    There is the letter of the law and the spirit of the law. The letter of the NBA law says that players cannot participate in exhibitions of any kind between July 1 and Sept. 15 without the approval of the league. Yet a handful of players did just that, competing in University of Washington alumni…

  24. One terrible sequence sums up one terrible half by Grizzlies (VIDEO)

    May 21, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    That sequence — seven missed shots inside five feet in a row — pretty much sums up the first half for Memphis. Tony Allen has his shot rejected blocked. But he got the ball back then missed a bunny. Zach Randolph came in and missed a tip in (he was 1-of-10 shooting in the first…

    Boston Celtics' Dooling celebrates a teammate's basket against the Miami Heat during Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    The Memphis Grizzlies have added some veteran depth for their run in the playoffs. As had been rumored, they are bringing 12-year NBA veteran Keyon Dooling on board — a guy with playoff experience who has been well liked and respected by teammates at every stop. Dooling himself made the announcement on twitter. I am…
