As the Sixers continue to flip through resumes for who will be chosen as the next head coach, Mike D’Antoni should be a name that the team stays away from. Yes, D’Antoni has one of the brightest offensive minds in the NBA. Yes, he has his fingerprints all over the modern game and its emphasis […]Read more "Why the Sixers should stay well away from Mike D’Antoni"
Ben Simmons has been named to the All-NBA third team. The Philadelphia 76ers superstar point guard continues to stack up the awards this offseason, as he was just officially named to the All-NBA Third Team, his second national accolade over the last few days. Ben Simmons was first named to the league’s All-Defensive First Team, […]Read more "Ben Simmons finally gets deserved respect with All-NBA Third Team nod"
While essentially every Philadelphia 76ers fan in the world was on board with the team firing Brett Brown (except for me of course), the team was left in a pretty directionless path once that decision was finally made. The leading candidate was Tyronn Lue (who was reportedly demanding insane amounts of salary), and other options […]Read more "Billy Donovan needs to be the Sixers #1 coaching target"
It feels like an eternity ago since Brett Brown boldly proclaimed at the press conference mic that the Sixers were about to go Starhunting.” The date of this was June 21st 2018 which was somehow just 2 years ago. Coming on the heels of a team led by Embiid, Simmons, Robert Covington, JJ Redick, and […]Read more "How “Starhunting” became the Sixers’ biggest downfall"
There’s no rush for the Sixers to hire their next HC.

When the Sixers’ football counterpart, the Philadelphia Eagles, finally acquired wide receiver Terrell Owens during the 2004 offseason, Philly fans were beyond ecstatic.

About a week ago, my friend David Esser wrote a piece highlighting the Ben Simmons’ injury. In this article, David questioned if Alec Burks could help fill the void that was being created due to Simmons not playing. As Dave also notes, “Burks has really struggled to land a solidified role with the Sixers since […]Read more "Could Alec Burks be just what the Sixers need right now?"
Tobias Harris silences the doubters. From the very moment Tobias Harris inked that $180 million contract, the criticisms have poured down left and right on the Sixers forward. Anytime he misses a shot, Twitter is flooded with calls of “overpaid” and “overrated”. For the most part, Harris has been exactly what the Sixers paid for, […]Read more "Sixers vs Celtics: Five bold predictions for the first round of the playoffs"
When Kyle O’Quinn signed his contract for a veteran’s minimum $2.1 million this offseason, it did not come with high expectations. The 29-year-old journeyman has never averaged more than 7.1 points per game nor has he started more than a handful of games. This year, O’Quinn averaged 10.6 minutes per game totaling 3.3 points, 3.9 […]Read more "The Curious Case of Kyle O’Quinn and an expanded playoff role"
For the most part, the Orlando bubble has been quite the disaster for the Sixers. Ben Simmons suffered what’s likely to be a season-ending injury, Joel Embiid has already hurt both his ankle and his hand, and TJ Warren hung a 50-piece on Philly’s defense. However, amidst all the chaos and lackluster performances, one tiny […]Read more "Sixers will officially have a 2020 first-round pick thanks to Mike Muscala"
