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,...
Al son de Ben Simmons. Gracias por escuchar "Prueba de Fuego 1x17". Dejamos atrás la resaca de la victoria en Boston y nos vamos aocstumbrando a la vida sin Embiid, en una semana que nos ha dejado tanto cosas positivas como negativas.

Furkan’s Inferno

"It was a tough season for me.. I was the first player to ask to get traded and then 6 or 7 players were traded but I'm still here."

There are times in the NBA schedule when the focus shifts from the coach and players to the front office and their decisions. As the NBA approaches its February 6th trade deadline, Elton Brand and his staff become the focus. The Sixers, at 26-16, are good, but having lost 14 road games, they look incomplete. When asked about his...

Finding The Right Mix

The last month of basketball has shown us that the Sixers' offense is wildly inconsistent and their biggest question mark when evaluating them comparatively with the other contenders in the East and the NBA. It's weird, the team's weaknesses are exactly what was expected, and, yet, it's shocking how bad things can get as the team progresses...

            New year, new decade, (hopefully) new Sixers. 2019 ended on quite a sour note, but the beginning of 2020 offers the Sixers a chance to right the wrongs that have them no better than 25-16 right now. They are 2-3 to begin 2020, but each player, individually, can make some changes that would help the group collectively...
