Is how exhaustive time and effort goes into giving people two seconds of amusement?
That was the main question regarding ESPN’s complete NBA player rankings, which were released Monday starting at the bottom. There at No. 500, to Twitter’s delight, was Sixers forward Royce White, just below former Celtics center Fab Melo, sitting pretty at No. 499.

I lament the fact that I ever became emotionally invested in the Philadelphia 76ers. Brushing aside the inherent absurdity of investing any energy whatsoever into a pro sports team –i.e. the assortment of tall, athletic strangers who play their home games within the shortest relative distance from my front door — it’s obvious that the fleeting joys of being a 76ers fan pale...
Today I am shifting the focus away from the Boston Celtics and onto the Philadelphia 76ers. If you didn't get to read our first article about tanking, then you can check it out here. Perhaps the Sixers should have been the first team we analyzed, after all, they are taking tanking to a completely new level.I've never been so excited...
Royal Ivey will be in the Atlanta Hawks' training camp.
Ivey reportedly worked out for the Hawks recently.
Ivey has spent nine seasons in the NBA, including his first three with the Hawks.
Ivey, 31, has averaged 3.3 points and 1.1 assists in his career.
Every NBA franchise dreams of having a tall, athletic and skilled point guard lead their team down the court. The 76ers now have two potential starting point men in that unique category – 6’5 rookie Michael Carter-Williams and 6’5 second year man Tony Wroten (They actually have three if you think 6’3 former Laker Darius Morris has a chance of earning the starting job...
