76ers-Wizards Preview

John Wall has been sensational on the Washington Wizards' homestand, though it isn't translating into enough victories. The lowly Philadelphia 76ers visit next, and they may be able to slow down Wall now that the energetic Ish Smith is starting at point guard. The Wizards also usually excel on the glass and will attempt to keep Nerlens Noel off the boards in Wednesday night's matchup...

Philadelphia 76ers: Respect The Sixers!

Source: Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… When I was writing my season expectations, I said that the Philadelphia 76ers wouldn’t win 10 games. Well they are at 18 and have a chance to double my expectations. I have written on my disgust for Sam Hinkie tanking, but this isn’t about him, this is about your coach Brett Brown...

Lakers-76ers Preview

Quality rookie seasons from Nerlens Noel and Jordan Clarkson have been the silver linings of otherwise dismal seasons for the Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers. Still, poor showings from their respective first-year players may be in each team's best interest Monday night as they continue their race toward the bottom of the NBA standings. Philadelphia (18-56) currently owns...

6 for the Final 9 of Tank 2.0

Last night, despite a super-human effort from emerging Rookie of the Year candidate Nerlens Noel (30 points; 14 boards; 70% shooting form the field), the 76ers lost their 55th contest of Tank 2.0.  Instead of analyzing the fact that Brett Brown’s squad missed their last 10 shots of the 3rd quarter last night or how they trailed the playoff bound Clippers by 32 during the final...

Robert Covington puts Andre Miller on a poster

The 76ers may not win a ton of games, but they do produce their fair share of highlights. Robert Covington is no stranger to that, and now, neither is Andre Miller. Hey Bobby, have you always treated your professors so poorly? The Sixers have so many athletes like Ish Smith—who threw that lob—€”Covington, Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant, etc. that we're starting to see plays like...

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.
