Have we seen the last of Isaiah Canaan as a Sixer?

Everyone sitting close to the pool's edge can breathe a sigh of relief. There won't be any more Canaanballs for the Sixers this season.  Recently-acquired guard Isaiah Canaan has been an observer during the Sixers last few games, as Coach Brett Brown revealed last week that Canaan would miss the remainder of the season with a foot sprain.  Canaan, who was acquired on trade...

76ers throw short guy–short guy alley-oop

Philadelphia 76ers guard Ish Smith isn't known for finishing lobs, but he did it Wednesday night against the Wizards. OK, so he didn't exactly throw it down, but riddle us this: The NBA lists Smith at 6 feet (though they may be generous with that number). Isaiah Canaan, who tossed the alley-oop, is listed at the same height (same caveat here). So, are these the shortest players ever...

Revisiting the Michael Carter-Williams Trade, Or Sam Hinkie Strikes Again

Boom, DropHere's the combined numbers from Ish Smith and Isaiah Canaan, AKA a career NBA vagabond and a guy the team got for very little: 12 for 29 from the field, 4 for 10 from three point range, 7 for 7 from the line, 35 points, 4 boards, 6 assists, 3 turnovers and 4 steals. Admittedly, in an overtime loss to the Lakers, which might be the worst defensive team in the league, but...

Isaiah Canaan almost makes Jarrett Jack fall over

The Brooklyn Nets may have had the last laugh during Saturday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers, but Isaiah Canaan had the loudest one. What he did to Jarrett Jack should not be legal. That's not even a crossover. It's some sort of crazy, lateral hesitation move that put Jack completely on skates. It's almost like Canaan needed unnatural ankle flexibility to do it. The Sixers point...

Canaan-ball! Isaiah makes splash for Philadelphia 76ers

Weeks after Sam Hinkie doubled down on tanking, the Philadelphia 76ers have predictably continued their descent to the bottom of the standings. Their 2-9 record in the 11 games since the trade deadline has left them with the second worst in the league. The Sixers have perhaps over-performed their rock bottom expectations, beating the Hawks and the Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center while...

The Portland Trail Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks last night, but lost Wes Matthews for the rest of the season, to a torn Achilles.  With Matthews out, Arron Afflalo jumps into the starting rotation and you should check to see if his lack of scoring since being traded has seen him end up on the waiver wire. Steve Blake and C.J.
