76ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

76ers ready to move on following 2nd dismal season

PHILADELPHIA (AP) With little to play for in the season finale, Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown had enough and gave up the clipboard. He turned over the X's and O's to the guys on the bench. His assistants? Nah. His players. Out with injuries, Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and Jason Richardson took turns diagramming plays and added a little levity in what was another throwaway...

Canaan Ball Free Zone

Everyone sitting close to the pool’s edge can breathe a sigh of relief.  It’s a good bet that there won’t be any Canaanballs for the 76ers in 2015-16. Last week, Head Coach Brett Brown revealed that trade deadline acquisition Isiah Canaan would miss the remainder of the season with a foot sprain (He missed 6 games total because of the injury).  The 23-year-old guard only...

The tanking Philadelphia 76ers are inventing new ways to lose

Do not try to lose to the 76ers. That's not a game you can win at, even if you do actually come out victorious almost every time. Both the 76ers and Heat were actively trying to drop Wednesday night's game for the same top-10 protected draft pick, which the Sixers own. If the 76ers won, Miami's 2015 first-rounder would fall inside the top 10 of the lottery, giving Pat Riley &...

Have we seen the last of Isaiah Canaan as a Sixer?

Everyone sitting close to the pool's edge can breathe a sigh of relief. There won't be any more Canaanballs for the Sixers this season.  Recently-acquired guard Isaiah Canaan has been an observer during the Sixers last few games, as Coach Brett Brown revealed last week that Canaan would miss the remainder of the season with a foot sprain.  Canaan, who was acquired on trade...

Philadelphia’s improved defense a step in the right direction

The Philadelphia 76ers are still a work in progress, but they have shown marked improvement on defense this season. The Philadelphia 76ers have kept no secrets about the direction of their franchise over the past two seasons. The Sixers’ front office wants to be near the bottom of the NBA, because with fewer wins comes more ping pong balls, which means a higher percentage of...

Thomas Robinson Finds His Niche

​ A few months ago, I wrote that I believed former lottery pick Thomas Robinson still had the talent to recover from his label as a bust—if only he is signed into the right team situation, which had yet to occur in his NBA career. Mere weeks after I wrote the article, Robinson was traded. He went from his somewhat stable home in Portland over to the Denver Nuggets—mostly...

’14-15: Smiliar Record; Better Team

The 76ers will finish the 2014-15 NBA season with a record nearly identical to the one that they posted in 2013-14 – their first year under Head Coach Brett Brown and GM Sam Hinkie. The similarity in total wins and losses does not mean that there was zero progress from the first to second season under this regime.  It just means that the progress has yet to be reflected in the...

76ers throw short guy–short guy alley-oop

Philadelphia 76ers guard Ish Smith isn't known for finishing lobs, but he did it Wednesday night against the Wizards. OK, so he didn't exactly throw it down, but riddle us this: The NBA lists Smith at 6 feet (though they may be generous with that number). Isaiah Canaan, who tossed the alley-oop, is listed at the same height (same caveat here). So, are these the shortest players ever...

Sixers' rebuild bears fruit in Nerlens Noel

Does Anyone Want to Win? 76ers vs Cavs: Behind the Box Score

Philadelphia 76ers (18-56) 86 Cleveland Cavaliers (48-27) 87 Box Score On Saturday night, Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena hosted a nail-biter of a game for the ages when Kentucky survived Notre Dame 68-66 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It was one hell of a game, and though it may have been one of the more well-played games in the tournament, it was still characterized...

6 for the Final 9 of Tank 2.0

Last night, despite a super-human effort from emerging Rookie of the Year candidate Nerlens Noel (30 points; 14 boards; 70% shooting form the field), the 76ers lost their 55th contest of Tank 2.0.  Instead of analyzing the fact that Brett Brown’s squad missed their last 10 shots of the 3rd quarter last night or how they trailed the playoff bound Clippers by 32 during the final...

Remember when: Allen Iverson crossed up Michael Jordan and made him look silly (VIDEO)

Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson had some epic battles over the years when the Bulls and Sixers squared off. It seemed like Iverson would turn it up a bit and had some of his best career performances when matched up against the greatest NBA player of all time. Jordan often got the best of Iverson—reminiscent of what he did to all his opponents—but it wasn’t due to lack of...

Canaan-ball! Isaiah makes splash for Philadelphia 76ers

Weeks after Sam Hinkie doubled down on tanking, the Philadelphia 76ers have predictably continued their descent to the bottom of the standings. Their 2-9 record in the 11 games since the trade deadline has left them with the second worst in the league. The Sixers have perhaps over-performed their rock bottom expectations, beating the Hawks and the Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center while...

Philadelphia 76ers: What to think about the trade deadline

Even if you’ve been living underneath a Patrick Star-esque rock for the past week, you probably still felt the aftershock resulting from the craziest NBA trade deadline in recent memory. Sam Hinkie and the Philadelphia 76ers were right in the thick of the madness, trading away both Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels in separate deals, only moments before the 3 P.M. deadline...

Nobody on the 76ers is safe, including Joel Embiid

After dealing Michael Carter-Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks last week, it appears no player on the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster is safe — including players who have Rookie of the Year trophies on their mantles. Still, it’s probably safe to assume that Joel Embiid wouldn’t be included in such talks, as the only thing more shameful Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
