The Sixers are continuing to battle against the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the NBA season. Last night’s game against the Thunder was cancelled as the team didn’t have enough players, and they spent most of last week short-handed. However, very cloud has a silver lining and the recent lack of depth has given […]Read more "There is a silver lining for the Sixers after a week of COVID setbacks"
After back-to-back victories over the Heat, the Sixers return to the court to take on the Memphis Grizzlies for the first time this season. The Grizzlies have had a disappointing start to the season sitting at 10th in the Western Conference with a record of 5-6. The Grizzlies play a much slower pace than the […]Read more "Sixers, Without Embiid, Look To Continue Their Win Streak vs. Grizzlies"
Over the past week, the Sixers have been forced to get creative in their lineups due to the contact tracing rules the NBA has put in place. After Seth Curry received a positive Covid test, Tobias Harris, Shake Milton, Matisse Thybulle, and Vincent Poirier were all forced to quarantine away from the team. On top […]Read more "Sixers’ ‘Covid’ Roster Brings Back Feelings of “The Process”"
From the start of “The Process” there was one clear goal- bring a championship to Philadelphia. It has been nearly 8 years since Sam Hinkie was first given the reigns as the Sixers GM and this mission was put in place.

Let’s start by taking a deep breath. The Sixers are going to be fine. The recent loss to the Brooklyn Nets was an extremely disappointing result and brought back flashbacks to the Brett Brown era where back-to-backs were seemingly an insurmountable challenge. Despite the aesthetically pleasing and fast-paced style of play that has been put […]Read more "Are Turnovers a Cause of Concern for the Sixers?"
So far this season, the Sixers’ 2020 first round draft pick, Tyrese Maxey, is proving to be the steal of the draft. The Philadelphia 76ers accidentally stumbled upon a gem when Tyrese Maxey fell into their laps with the 21st pick in the draft. Despite playing just 120 total minutes of professional basketball so far […]Read more "Tyrese Maxey could well be this year’s biggest Draft steal"
So much noise has (rightfully) been made on the Sixers’ mismanagement of funds as they have handed out massive contracts to guys like Al Horford and Tobias Harris without a second thought. While these criticisms are fair, there has not been enough talk about the bargain of a contract that was agreed to by Shake […]Read more "Is Shake Milton the best bang-for-buck player in the NBA?"
Despite the sloppy start to the game in which it took nearly 8 minutes of play for either team to crack 10 points, the Sixers eventually found their footing. Once the team settled in, it was more of the same for the Sixers. The spacing was good. The passing was crisp. The shots fell. The […]Read more "Game Recap: No Need for Embiid as Sixers Squash Hornets"
