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"
The Sixers just can’t catch a break. After losing to the Phoenix Suns (granted without their starters) the team suffered a stunning collapse against the Toronto Raptors.

During last night’s Rockets-Mavs game, that’s exactly what […]Read more "Sixers fans, please stop overhyping Trey Burke"
The Sixers are in the market for some certified shooters. The team as a unit shoots incredibly poor for a modern NBA contender. They rank 17th in 3-point percentage and 25th in 3-pointers per game (as of 1/14/20). The numbers are even worse than they appear because the Sixers also lack consistency. They may shoot […]Read more "Sixers Trade Targets: Bargain Bin Shooters"

In 2018, Elton Brand and the rest of the 76ers’ front office were able to construct a truly dominant starting five. The group of Embiid, Simmons, Harris, Butler, and Redick all averaged over 16.5 points per game, and their elite level of production carried the Sixers deep into the Eastern Conference playoffs.
