Found March 11, 2013 on Brooklyn Balling:
Doug Collins, the 76ers' coach, has been blamed for much of the team's recent losing skid, in which Philly has lost five games in-a-row and 12 of its last 13 When: 7:00 pm; Monday, March 11th, 2013 Where: Wells Fargo Center; Philadelphia, PA TV: YES Network After starting the season 10-6, the Philadelphia 76ers basically been fading for months as the key piece they acquired this summer in exchange for Andre Iguodala and NIkola Vucevic, among others,--Andrew Bynum--has languished on the bench with a knee injury. That injury has cost him the entire season so far and Philly's play has clearly suffered from it, as the 76ers are currently ranked 29th in the league in scoring and are among the league's worst in a number of other categories, like point differential and offensive rebounding percentage to name a few. Simply put, the 76ers are a bad team, mired in its worst stretch of play of the whole season. Conversely, the Nets are playing some ...

Andrew Bynum: Philadelphia’s Latest Sports Disappointment

When Andrew Bynum was traded to the 76ers, all of Philadelphia was ecstatic.  The last time the 76ers were the talk of the NBA was when they signed Elton Brand, which turned out to be a waste.  Many pundits were viewing the Sixers as a dark horse in the East, a definite top-4 seed.   With a point guard-center duo that was arguably tops in the league, the 76ers finally had hope...

The Philadelphia 76ers Were Right To Trade For Andrew Bynum

A couple of weeks ago on The Unsportsmanlike Conduct Show, I expressed my disdain for all things Andrew Bynum. The annoyance around Bynum and his sideshow, as opposed to Andrew Bynum the basketball player, had reached its tipping point, to the point where our own Justin Tinsley, on behalf of the African-American community, gave me [...]The post The Philadelphia 76ers Were Right To...

The Philadelphia 76ers are at a crossroad

The Philadelphia 76ers certainly have good reason to feel down on themselves. They’re  seeded 10th in the Eastern Conference with a 23-37 record with utterly no chance at making the playoffs and their big off season acquisition Andrew Bynum hasn’t played one minute all season and is highly unlikely to at any point in the season. Last season, the 76ers were one of the more exciting...

Doug Collins Endorses Coach Pop and Doc

If you take a look at the coaches who have led the USA Men’s basketball team, since the late Chuck Daly was at the helm of the original and only "Dream Team," one common theme is shared among all of them -- they were well respected coaches with successful track records and able to manage egos. When asked on who he believes should be the next coach of the Olympic Team...

More time for Moultrie

I wrote this over the weekend for Pattison Ave., but didn't get a chance to get it up on ATA until now. The Sixers' streak-snapping victory over the Nets last night didn't change anything, the team should use the rest of the season to see what Moultrie, and other unproven players are made of:"With last night’s loss in Miami, it seems pretty safe to say that the...
