Unlike the NBA, the NHL trade deadline is often a bit on the boring side. This year is gearing up to be one of the least likely to make a "splash" in recent memory. However, that doesn't prevent a fan like myself from dreaming. What if each player who is likely available went to the best possible scenario? The NHL...
Amid adversity, Elton Brand booty called the Golden State Warriors and helped the 76ers acquire two very low-maintenance role players for a harmless cost.  The Philadelphia 76ers are falling victim to a handful of undiagnosable problems, juxtaposed by a slew of disheartening losses. Following an embarrassing loss to the bottom-dwelling Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia earned a road loss against Boston and barely...
With the Sixers' recent struggles at the backdrop of the NBA trade deadline, it was becoming increasingly clear the need for a roster tune-up. On Wednesday night, Sixers General Manager Elton Brand echoed those sentiments. And in doing so, the Sixers acquired Golden State's Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III in exchange for draft compensations. They also shipped out...
According to a team source, the 76ers will be announcing a new official partnership with Planet Fitness today. The multi-year deal will make the rapidly growing fitness center an official partner of the 76ers ENT, which includes Squad 76 and Sixers Stixers. This "tying of the knot" corresponds with the grand opening of a new Planet Fitness location in Philadelphia....
Zhaire Smith looks aggressive
Zhaire Smith's path to the NBA has been anything but conventional. Drafted out of Texas Tech in 2018, many expected a somewhat-immediate impact from the Red Raiders star. A health scare last season, followed by a crowded bench this year, left Smith without a clear track to the Sixers' rotation. But during Philadelphia's 115-104 win over Golden...
Despite sitting 3.5 games behind the second-place Toronto Raptors, the Philadelphia 76ers desperately need help if they'd like to climb atop the Eastern Conference. Philadelphia is going to be one of the more active teams ahead of the 2020 NBA Trade Deadline, with a handful of diagnosable roster problems. Although General Manager Elton Brand worked tirelessly this off-season...
The 76ers came out of the tunnel before the game Tuesday against the Golden State Warriors dressed in Jerseys over their warmups with either number 8 or 24 and the name Bryant on the back. Kobe Bryant played at Lower Merion High School before going directly to the NBA in 1996. His impact on the current crop...
If you died today, how would you like to be remembered? Michael Wilbon once asked Kobe how he would like to be remembered.  "A player that didn't waste a moment, someone who didn't waste a day. Someone that lived everyday as if I was the 12th guy on the bench."  5x NBA champion 2x NBA Finals MVP        ...
The Sixers hosted the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night, short both Joel Embiid and Josh Richardson. Philly (29-17) was looking to get back on track following a road loss to the Raptors. The Lakers (36-9) were looking to finish off an East coast trip on a positive note. Timeout The Sixers were very jittery in the early-goings of...
The Eagles have around $44 million to spend this offseason and there are already some early rumors that they could be big players in the cornerback market. According to Tony Pauline of the Pro Football Network, the Eagles want to address the cornerback position in Free Agency. “Word here in Mobile is that the Philadelphia Eagles will go...
As the Sixers embarked on a stretch without their All-Star center, much was made about the team's ability to finish games. And while the offense looks clunky and awkward, Philadelphia has closed games out by simply putting a lid on the basket. Defense was always this team's true calling card. But since Embiid's injury, this group has...
I recall a line delivered by platinum-selling artist and Tobias Harris doppelganger J. Cole on his 2010 mixtape Friday Night Lights that reads, “Keep grinding, boy, your life can change in one year.” First off, I already know I’m going to be getting slack for quoting J Cole. His music’s boring, he never has any features, he’s kind of corny,...
