Philadelphia 76ers Complete Draft Preview

Joel Embiid #476664963 / 76ers took Joel Embiid with the third overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Joel is hands down the highest risk in this draft, but to many, has the best potential.

Jordan McRae On Cuonzo Martin’s Treatment At Tennessee: “Can’t Treat People Any Kind Of Way And Expect Good In Return”

Cuonzo Martin’s sudden departure from Tennessee was a surprise, but probably not totally unexpected based on how Martin was received earlier this season, before Tennessee’s run to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament. Many Vols fans wanted to run Martin out of town, and some even petitioned the school to bring back former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl, who has since been hired at...
