Something to Talk About…

After their convincing win last night in Orlando over the Oladipo-less Magic, the 76ers (6-38) are now 2-2 in their last four games. In fact if not for a horrific free throw shooting performance (13-25 = 52%) in their MLK Day matinee game against the Knicks, Brett Brown’s squad would be 3-1 in their last four games and riding a three game winning streak. While a friendlier schedule...

Mid-Season Philadunkia 4on4

Thursday night’s game against the Bulls will mark the 41st contest for the 76ers (4-36) of the 2015-16 season.  Thus, it’s time for our annual mid-season edition of Philadunkia’s 4on4… As a reminder, this Philadunkia question and answer series is “loosely based” on ESPN.com’s highly successful, NBA related series of posts titled “5on5″.  Our version of this genre...

Can the Defensive Woes Be Fixed?

With the addition of Ish Smith (via trade for two 2nd round draft picks) and Elton Brand, it’s clear that Sam Hinkie’s “process” has been rudely interrupted by Adam Silver via Jerry Colangelo and Mike D’Antoni.  For a “process” faithful like myself Silver’s interference is an annoying development as one could argue that the 2015-16 season was Hinkie’s finest...

Road Trip 6-Pack

In case you were overwhelmed with Christmas presents or too busy watching the Mummers strut their stuff, we wanted you to know that the 76ers just finished a six-game road trip in which they assembled a 2-4 record.  The “successful” road trip inspired Jahlil Okafor to declare, “We really made huge strides this road trip”.  Now, please remember, Jah is a rookie so he may...

Worse Than We Ever Imagined

Back in October I wrote a post detailing that in the first month or so of the 2015-16 NBA season Philadunkia nation would have to exercise a significant amount of patience with this 76ers team and “the process”. In that post, I theorized that because of injuries, learning to play together and an unfriendly opening month of the schedule that the Sixers would struggle mightily...

Drama Is Not What the Sixers Need

The 76ers record stands at 1-24.  They have dropped 7 straight games.  The last four loses have been by an average of 23 points.  Brett Brown’s roster does not boast  an NBA starting caliber point guard or shooting guard and features two dynamic bigs that may not be able to play together. They lead the NBA in turnovers (17.4 per game). Lastly, the Sixers have been awful on...

Process This…

Even for those of us who completely “trust the process”, there is no denying that the 76ers last 2+ seasons have been painful to live through (Last night’s 51-point loss to the Spurs was possibly the most painful moment.). Every individual no matter how mentally and physically tough, has a specific threshold for tolerating pain and once that point is exceeded, you will plead...

Kobe’s Philly Farewell

There were some boos, more cheers, and even more emotion.   Draft implications aside, Kobe Bryant’s last professional game in Philadelphia went about as well as it could have for a Sixers supporter also appreciative of Kobe’s career.   There were vintage Kobe moments – like his three three pointers in the game’s first two minutes*. The game also had its share of modern...

Showing Some Fight

Despite not having won a game this season, the 76ers have displayed a great deal of heart and fight on the court every night.  Now it appears they can fight off-the-court as well. Unless you fell into a post-Thanksgiving dinner coma, you aware that TMZ Sports has posted a grainy cell phone video showing 76ers’ rookie Jhalil Okafor punching out a heckler in the streets of Boston...

Not That Big of A Surprise

On Monday night the 76ers put up a respectable fight against the Dallas Mavericks, but were eventually bested by the Dirk and Company.  The loss dropped the Sixers record to 0-11 and with a brutal schedule the rest of the month, my prediction of a 2-16 start to this season now seems like a pipe dream. Still, for the most part I have truly enjoyed watching this group of rookies...
