Henry Sims providing spark for 76ers

Henry Sims providing spark for 76ersBack in late February on the day of the NBA trade deadline, the Philadelphia 76ers made plenty of different moves which shook up their entire roster.  One trade they made was sending Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers for a couple of draft picks and center Henry Sims. When the Sixers made the trade with Cleveland, their main objective was...

Why the Louisville Cardinals Won’t Repeat as National Champions

Rick Pitino has a solid team in the Lousville Cardinals, but a repeat performance may not happen (via mjhsbnn) On paper, the defending national champion Louisville Cardinal team looks identical to its predecessor.

Philadelphia 76ers fail to get their fans free Big Macs against Kings

For all you fans that have attended an NBA game, you’ve most likely be subject to a promotion where the home team scores 100 points and you get a free food item like a Taco Bell taco. In relation to the Philadelphia 76ers, they giveaway a free McDonald’s Big Mac if the team reaches 100 and last night, they came up painfully short. After Tony Wroten hit a lay-up, 76ers fans urged...

Video: Tony Wroten Drops Ray McCallum With Nasty Crossover

The Philadelphia 76ers’ Tony Wroten shook Ray McCallum, causing some ankle-breaking action Wednesday night. The combination crossover between-the-legs, right-to-left dribble was too mind-boggling for McCallum to keep his feet under him during this possession. Early last week I gave the Nuggets’ Ty Lawson the title for the best crossover of the 2013-14 NBA season, but this crossover...

76ers To Release Lorenzo Brown To Create Johnson-Odom's Roster Spot

GM64: Rapid (18 & Beautiful) Reacts

Sacramento Kings 115 FinalRecap | Box Score 98 Philadelphia 76ers Thaddeus Young, PF 39 MIN | 5-18 FG | 6-8 FT | 6 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 16 PTS | -16It was a roller coaster night for Thad who played with his usual high energy and thus scored some amazing buckets like his 1st Q tip-follow, but his shot was not falling and at times I thought he was forcing...

Stephan Van Treese: No. 44 On The Floor, No. 1 In Our Heart

Pete Cautilli – The Cardinal Connect It is no secret that we at The Cardinal Connect are big fans of Stephan Van Treese.  SVT is number 44 in the program, but number one in our hearts.  Senior day was an emotional experience for all of Card nation, but it was extra rough on Janitor fans.  Stephan has been my favorite player since Beau Zach Smith wore Louisville across his chest...

Evan Turner: Bynum would have made Sixers title contenders

It’s a mute point because both men are gone, but it is a question that needs to be asked. Had Andrew Bynum been healthy enough to play meaningful games as a member of the 76ers, would Philly be dreaming of a playoff run instead of the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes? Both are members of the Pacers now via different circumstances. Bynum of course signed with Cleveland this off-season...

Russ Smith Night at the Fed Ex Forum

A Russdiculous kind of night at the Fed Ex Forum in Memphis. One never knows which Russ Smith will show up for a game these days. Will it be the recently unveiled version of Russ, the one catering to the NBA scouts, working on his assist totals, passing up his kind of shots, finding open teammates, scoring only when there’s no other option. Or will it be the old Russ, the one who...

Smith's record night paces Louisville blowout

No. 5 Louisville beats No. 21 UConn 71-61 to win AAC Tournament

Rick Pitino switched from coach to lobbyist the moment his Louisville Cardinals won their third straight conference tournament title. Of course, Pitino thinks the defending national champs deserve a No. 1 seed, even if he knows they likely won't get one. Montrezl Harrell had 22 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks, and fifth-ranked Louisville beat No. 21 Connecticut 71-61 Saturday...

Kentucky Fans Make It Too Easy

Losing to Kentucky on Dec. 28 has been the low point of the season thus far for Rick Pitino and the Cardinals. Losing to your biggest rival is bad enough, but as the regular season played out, the loss to Kentucky ended up being the biggest blemish on Louisville’s resume. We haven’t spent much time rubbing it in, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t refreshing to see John...
