  • When I woke up this morning and read the 76ers news on Twitter, I laughed…I smiled…and I cried a little (for Vlade Divac). In the over night hours, Hinkiepalooza struck again.  This time Sam fleeced the Kings of Nik Stauskas (fomer No. 8 overall pick in 2014 Draft); power forwards Carl Landry and Jason Thompson, a 2018 protected top-10 pick and the right to swap first-roun... read more...

  • The Philadelphia 76ers are now the home of the 7-footers.  The Sixers got former Kansas big man Joel Embiid and former Kentucky star Nerlens Noel in previous drafts. And tonight, Philadelphia selected former Duke star Jahlil Okafor.  Philly’s hoarding of big men is amusing to Embiid.  OK……….. Lol — Joel Embiid (@JoelEmbiid) June 25, 2015 The NBA Draft is currently airin... read more...

  •   Allen Iverson was a great basketball player. He was not, however, a very good person — at least according to allegations in a new biography about the former NBA superstar.   The book “Not a Game: The Incredible Rise and Unthinkable Fall of Allen Iverson” was written by journalist Kent Babb and released earlier in the week. Deadspin’s Drew Magary read the biography ... read more...

  • The Sacramento Kings are not having a good last few weeks. What with All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins demanding a trade, owner Vivek Ranadive publicly feuding with his head coach and vice president of basketball operations Vlade Divac making an underwhelming draft pick, things haven’t been swell in Sactown. Now the team’s strategy for free agency has gone completely off th... read more...

  • The Philadelphia 76ers are relying on young players like Nerlens Noel to get them back to the post-season. With the 3rd overall pick in last night’s draft, the Philadelphia 76ers took prized Duke center, Jahlil Okafor. At 6-11 and 270 pounds, the Duke prospect has the size, instincts and talent to become a key cog in the 76ers’ game-plan. With the addition of Okafor, the ... read more...

  • The Philadelphia 76ers selected Jahlil Okafor with the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. What is Sam Hinkie’s grand plan? Sam Hinkie finally may have outsmarted himself. Jahlil Okafor is a solid player with a nice offensive game and he helped to lead his team to win the National title. I hope he has success; […] ... read more...

  • Stephen A. Smith insists Allen Iverson was not intoxicated when the former NBA star went on his infamous “practice” rant in 2002, and Smith defended Iverson in the most Stephen A. Smith-way possible on Friday morning. During the latest edition of the insufferable “First Take,” Smith spent more than five minutes ranting about how close...Read More read more...

  • The Nets tried to sign Thomas Robinson when he was waived midseason this past year. Brooklyn figured he would pass through waivers and reached an agreement with the former Trail Blazers to come to Barclays Center. But the 76ers ruined everything. The Sixers claimed Robinson off waivers and the Kansas product ended up heading to Philly for the rest of the season. Now that h... read more...

  • The first day of free agency was a quiet one for the Philadelphia 76ers. But even if they don't want to sign notable players to large contracts, that doesn't mean they aren't willing to take another team's unwanted salary for the cost of a valuable young asset.The Sixers were patient, waited for their opportunity, then struck (potential) gold by landing last year's eighth ... read more...

  • In the Summer of 2013, the Golden State Warriors gave up two likely late first round picks in order to clear the space to sign Andre Iguodala. In the Summer of 2014, the Cleveland Cavaliers gave up Tyler Zeller and a first round pick in order to clear the space to sign LeBron James (though he had not committed yet). In the Summer of 2015, the Sacramento Kings gave up Nik S... read more...
