Jocks and Stiletto Jill:
Royce White is with a new team this season. Considering he never touched the hardwood in Houston last year because his anxiety disorder wouldn’t allow team travel, some might consider this his rookie season. With a clean slate in Philly with the 76′ers, the question that was on everyone’s mind at media day, is White planning on traveling with the team this season. “Anytime you go anywhere new, it’s a fresh start,” White said. “I think even if you take away all of the things that happened off the court with me last year, it would still be a fresh start just by being traded. I don’t like to look at it as a second chance or my last chance- I like to look at it as my first chance.” White made it clear that he does plan on traveling with the team – driving to games that are close and flying to others. Including a trip to Spain next week for preseason action. “For Sam to take a chance on me again- and not to say that I don’t deserve the chance, but we know how it goes,” White said. “There are other people out there that can play and want to play. So I am just happy to be here and hopefully we can find an arraignment that works for Philly.” Sounds as if White has an attitude adjustment for the new season. That’s going to come in handy considering it’s the last year of his rookie contract. Philly could pick up the rights to his third season but I’m sure that would largely depend on his output this year.
BEST OF MAXIM
Call me crazy but the minute the 76ers hired Brett Brown as their head coach, I somehow envision Evan Turner playing the Manu Ginobili role for Philly’s new regime.
Brown has a message for Turner according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, and it’s simply to “stop reading newspapers, and finding the passion in his game again.”
“And I hope he’s not caring about what goes on...
The Philadelphia 76ers are in serious rebuild mode, and barreling full steam ahead into the Andrew Wiggins sweepstakes.
Practice started over at PCOM on Saturday morning, and we can expect a lot of perimeter oriented play for the first few weeks.
According to multiple reports the 76ers only have one healthy body in the post.
“That’s the situation we’re in,” Hawes said Friday...
When Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young saw the Philadelphia 76ers trade away Jrue Holiday, they wondered if they would be next.
It didn't happen. Turner and Young are still here, though maybe not for long.
There's no hiding that the Sixers are in full rebuilding mode. They have a new general manager, a new coach and a new philosophy.
Training camp starts Saturday, and players...
The 76ers are starting off the 2013 training camp the same way last season ended, with a boat load of injuries.
Keith Pompey is reporting that 76ers power forward Arnett Moultrie will miss the first two months of the season with an ankle injury.

Philadelphia 76ers guard, Evan Turner, sat down for a quick interview at NBA Media Day. Turner toyed with his microphone (that didn’t appear to be working), and then dropped a quick mother f$*cker on a live recording.
Check it out!
Turner was oblivious to the fact that they were live when he dropped the F-bomb. When a crew member informed Turner that they were indeed live, Turner...
When 76ers new GM Sam Hinkie started his wheeling and dealing during the NBA draft, many assumed it would be Evan Turner who got his walking papers.
Instead, Hinkie traded the 76ers only All Star in Jrue Holiday, for a first round pick that turned into Nerlens Noel. Turner for his part thought he would be traded, and said he was prepared to move on.
“[I] was ready, just hoping...
Evan Turner said on media day that he was prepared for a trade from the Philadelphia 76ers if that was the direction the organization wanted to go.
"[I] was ready, just hoping it was warm," Turner said, smiling.
Turner had his best NBA season last year, but the 76ers have undergone a major rebuild from the 2012-13 campaign.
Turner was the second overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft.
There were so many new faces in the gym at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine for Friday’s Sixers’ media day that it was a good thing the players had their names on the backs of their uniforms.
Tony Wroten Darius Morris James Anderson Rodney Williams Vander Blue Tim Ohlbrecht Hollis Thompson … where did all those guys come from?
But wearing No. 23 was a familiar...
