Your Morning Dump… Where Evan Turner is a nice low risk option for “Danny Assets”

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “But that’s history. There’s nothing we can do to change that. This is a situation where he can come and grow as a player. I think Brad (Stevens) realizes he’s a multi-dimensional player.” Turner played...

DRAFT14: Hinkie’s 2nd Round Gems

Philadunkia nation fan there is very good chance that we won’t see our first round talents from the 2014 NBA Draft suit up for the team this year.  With Embiid nursing his broken foot for the next six to eight months and Saric playing in Turkey for at least the next two years, the only prospects from Draft14 we’ll see on the court next season will be those Sam Hinkie selected...

Sixers Must Get 2014 Draft Right

The Philadelphia 76ers didn’t win the lottery as they had hoped, but that doesn’t mean they can’t drastically improve their team on draft night. With the No. 3 and No. 10 picks in the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft, the 76ers will have the opportunity to add two potential franchise cornerstones to their young core, which already features 2013 lottery picks Michael Carter...

A lot riding for Sixers on Nerlens Noel's new shot

It was the same before almost every game. Nerlens Noel would be at the free throw line. Brett Brown would be somewhere in the same vicinity – usually a step or two behind the player. It was part of the process. Noel would stand on his left foot and lift his right leg. He’d hold the ball with his right hand, and only his right hand, and slowly raise it toward his head, taking...
