76ers ready to move on following 2nd dismal season

PHILADELPHIA (AP) With little to play for in the season finale, Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown had enough and gave up the clipboard. He turned over the X's and O's to the guys on the bench. His assistants? Nah. His players. Out with injuries, Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and Jason Richardson took turns diagramming plays and added a little levity in what was another throwaway...

Canaan Ball Free Zone

Everyone sitting close to the pool’s edge can breathe a sigh of relief.  It’s a good bet that there won’t be any Canaanballs for the 76ers in 2015-16. Last week, Head Coach Brett Brown revealed that trade deadline acquisition Isiah Canaan would miss the remainder of the season with a foot sprain (He missed 6 games total because of the injury).  The 23-year-old guard only...

The tanking Philadelphia 76ers are inventing new ways to lose

Do not try to lose to the 76ers. That's not a game you can win at, even if you do actually come out victorious almost every time. Both the 76ers and Heat were actively trying to drop Wednesday night's game for the same top-10 protected draft pick, which the Sixers own. If the 76ers won, Miami's 2015 first-rounder would fall inside the top 10 of the lottery, giving Pat Riley &...

Heat top the 76ers in game with ramifications for draft lottery

  Miami ended the season with two wins in one game. With a stopgap starting five each playing 40-plus minutes, the Heat held on to defeat the Philadelphia 76ers 105-101 on Wednesday night in a season finale more meaningful for the NBA draft order. The Heat's win paired with Brooklyn's win meant Miami is all but assured of keeping its top-10 draft pick. If Miami owns the No. 10 pick...

Heat vs. 76ers Game Recap: Heat End Season in High Spirits

(Philadelphia, PA) — The Miami Heat (36-46) finished off the 2014-15 season with a road win over the Philadelphia 76ers (19-63) Wednesday night, 105-101, in a matchup featuring two teams with nothing to play for, except draft lottery position.

Everyone sitting close to the pool's edge can breathe a sigh of relief.

Bucks vs. 76ers preview

In a season defined by massive defensive improvement, it was only fitting that the Milwaukee Bucks clinched a playoff spot with a lockdown performance.

The Bucks (40-40) clinched their third playoff berth in nine seasons with Sunday's 96-73 victory over Brooklyn. They're the first team to reach...

Philadelphia’s improved defense a step in the right direction

The Philadelphia 76ers are still a work in progress, but they have shown marked improvement on defense this season. The Philadelphia 76ers have kept no secrets about the direction of their franchise over the past two seasons. The Sixers’ front office wants to be near the bottom of the NBA, because with fewer wins comes more ping pong balls, which means a higher percentage of...

Thomas Robinson Finds His Niche

​ A few months ago, I wrote that I believed former lottery pick Thomas Robinson still had the talent to recover from his label as a bust—if only he is signed into the right team situation, which had yet to occur in his NBA career. Mere weeks after I wrote the article, Robinson was traded. He went from his somewhat stable home in Portland over to the Denver Nuggets—mostly...

’14-15: Smiliar Record; Better Team

The 76ers will finish the 2014-15 NBA season with a record nearly identical to the one that they posted in 2013-14 – their first year under Head Coach Brett Brown and GM Sam Hinkie. The similarity in total wins and losses does not mean that there was zero progress from the first to second season under this regime.  It just means that the progress has yet to be reflected in the...

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...
