Ideally, the 76ers would have wanted to nab the top spot in this year’s draft but dropping in at #3 overall isn’t such a bad fit either. The top two picks in the draft are, almost undoubtedly, going to be Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor, not necessarily in...

The Sixers are only focused on taking the best player avaialble

Every year, in every draft, teams either draft for "need/fit" or look to take the "best player available." It can be a tricky situation sometimes, but Philadelphia should definitely know which camp it's in. Here's the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey with more on the Sixers' draft-related plans:"Things could change if the Los Angeles Lakers shock people by selecting Russell...

Philadelphia 76ers: Draft options post-lottery

Last Tuesday, on May 19, the Philadelphia 76ers received the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery. It was a result that was expected, and certainly left many fans satisfied as all nightmare scenarios were avoided. The last thing that an 18-64 team wants is to acquire a pick outside of the top three; a reality that the division rival Knicks suffered as they fell to the...

In defense of 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie

The Philadelphia 76ers did not win the NBA Draft lottery. Cue the laugh-out-loud op-eds in which holier than thou columnists mock Sam Hinkie for the futility of his strategy because, God forbid, he actually did something different. We get it, Deadspin, you’re the smartest guys in the room and you need all of us to know it, but maybe let a guy have more than two seasons on the...

The History of No. 3

Next month, the 76ers have the number three overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.  All of us here at Philadunkia are hoping and praying, just like all of you, that Sam Hinkie will select a player that has a huge impact on this franchise for years to come (cough…D’Angelo Russell..cough) and one would think that type of player would be very easy to find and draft at No. 3. However...

76ers lose out on Lakers first-rounder, get just one first-round pick

The 76ers went into Tuesday night's NBA lottery with a chance to earn the first, sixth and 11th draft picks. Of course, that chance was infinitesimally small, but it still existed—enough for there to be an entire Twitter hashtag based on it. Unfortunately for Philly, the odds played out Tuesday night, and #OneSixEleven never amounted. First, Philadelphia lost out on its chance...

No. 3…Please

The 76ers didn’t walk away from the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery with a slew of first round selections.  Hell, they didn’t even end up with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 Draft.  Nope, the Timberwolves won the lottery last night, marking the first time since 2004 that the team with the worst record earned the No. 1 pick.  The hated Lakers finished second which made Magic Johnson...
