Celtics-76ers Preview

Philadelphia (2-21) led by 18 with 7:39 to go in regulation but couldn't hold on in Saturday's 120-115 overtime loss to first...

TC14: Question No. 10

The 76ers stand at 2-5 this preseason and matchup with the improved Detroit Pistons lies ahead on Thursday night.  After missing 3 games because of a respiratory infection, it appears Nerlens Noel (8.7 points & 8.7 rebounds per this preseason) will return to the lineup vs. the Pistons and look to scrape more of the rust of his game.  As Brett Brown’s “all of October”...

2014-15 NBA Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

I suppose any conversation about Philadelphia’s current season, and not the future, is pointless given the direction they have. This season will be like an endless training camp, rotating low-paid players through and giving extensive time to young guys. But I wouldn’t say they should be totally ignored. Nerlens Noel could be a fly-swatting defensive force, and there’s a chance...

TC14: Question No. 7

The first preseason game for Philadunkia’s home team is in the books and after Monday night’s very disappointing effort in Boston, it’s obvious the 76ers have a great deal to work on during the rest of Training Camp 2014.  As Brett Brown’s “all of October” training camp period continues, we are going to continue to discuss a number of topics that deserved to be...

Where Will the Scoring & Wins Come From?

The possibility of a fewer wins in the 2014-15 season for the 76ers has become a harsh reality in the recent weeks.  The departure of Thaddeus Young has put this team in a spot where in addition to scoring and defense, reliability and leadership have now been added to list of major concerns for this 2014-15 roster.  For most of 2013-14, players such as Young (17.9 PPG), Evan...

Summer School: Hollis Thompson

There is no denying that the relationships between NBA players on and off-the-court has changed over the last 15 years.  In this era of AAU basketball, powerhouse sports agents, mega sneaker contracts and social media, the majority of today’s NBA stars are well connected to each other and former players.  Thus, they have no problem texting an on-the-court rival for advice or...
