Some might view what Nerlens Noel is about to endure as lost time. Brett Brown, however, sees things differently. The 76ers coach said he and his staff are dedicated to improving Noel’s shot — perhaps even rebuilding it entirely — as the rookie center continues to rehab a surgically repaired knee that may keep him out all season. “You bucket him up into, ‘Is it a total rebuild?’ and I think Nerlens is a total rebuild,” Brown said Tuesday at PCOM, following the Sixers’ practice. “You do stuff with Evan (Turner)’s footwork, which we’ve done. You do stuff with release points or you exaggerate follow-throughs with Tony Wroten, because everything is a hot stove. Everything is tweakable. I think Nerlens is a total rebuild. “He’s wide-eyed and open. He’s a willing learner because he knows. He’s looking for advice and he’s looking for someone to help him. That’s my job.

Nerlens Noel Needs ‘Total Rebuild’ of Shooting Form, Sixers Coach Brett Brown Says

Philadelphia 76ers had to lose eventually

Game 4 Recap–Sixers v. Warriors

Let me tell you something about last night’s game: the Sixers lost and it was ugly. But listen, less than a week ago we expected every game to be like last night.

Michael Carter-Williams Wants To Prove He Should Have Been No. 1 Pick

Michael Carter-Williams is ‘The One,” the future of the 76ers at point guard, and my pick for rookie of the year. Carter-Williams of course fell to No. 11 in the draft, and selected by the 76ers with the intent of letting him have the ball from day one. Carter-Williams averaged 12 points, seven assists, five rebounds and three steals as a sophomore at Syracuse last season and...

Michael Carter-Williams calls out LeBron for a lack of effort

Carter-Williams, the 11th pick in June's Draft, has been amazing so far in his rookie season, but good enough to criticize LeBron James? The most surprising team of the 2013-14 NBA season so far has undoubtedly been the Philadelphia 76ers. Predicted by most pundits to win 25 games (on a very high end), the Sixers opened up their slate with a stunning win over...

76ers’ Daniel Orton leaves Wednesday’s game with knee soreness

Philadelphia 76ers’ center Daniel Orton left Wednesday night’s game against the Washington Wizards with right knee soreness and did not return. As reported by rotoworld.com, Orton has had numerous problems with his left knee, so the injury is not the same knee that caused him to plummet in the 2010 NBA Draft.  Orton left the game after scoring five points and grabbing three...

Evan Turner sent Andre Iguodala trash talking text message

Evan Turner’s trash talking text messages fired up Andre Iguodala Evan Turner might want to think twice before he sends out another trash talking text message.

Andrew Bynum on his disastrous season with 76ers: ‘I don’t feel bad at all’

When the only thing a player contributes during the totality of an NBA season is hilarious hairdos, odds are almost certain that it was an unproductive season at best, an unmitigated disaster at worst. And still, despite the fact that the Philadelphia 76ers paid Andrew Bynum a whopping $16.9 last season only play the […]The post Andrew Bynum on his disastrous season with 76ers...

Hinkie Believes Winning Creates Confidence, Hope It Help Weather Some Storms

Sixers lick their wounds after blowout loss

The 76ers knew this day would eventually come, and it occurred later than most predicted. On Tuesday the Sixers held their first practice of the season after a loss, a resounding one at that.

Sixers/Wizards Part II: Welcome to the Valley

“Peaks and valleys in the NBA are dangerous. We love you, we don’t. We’re good — we’re really terrible. None of it’s true.
