It was a brutal week for the 76ers following a red-hot start. They responded to a 5-0 start to the season (and an average point differential of 9 per game over those five games) with a 3-game losing streak that featured an average point differential of 3.33. In four of their first eight contests, the Sixers have...

Haywood Highsmith was brilliant. Is it too early to be concerned about Zhaire Smith? Audio and video are below! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fMJ2rMbnIc8&feature=youtu.be REMINDER!...
Defend, Run, Share. These are the three pillars of head coach Connor Johnson's coaching philosophy. On Monday night, Military Appreciation Night in Delaware, the Blue Coats ran, defended at times, and shared at times against the Greensboro Swarm. Just one day after the 76ers defeated the Swarm's parent club from Charlotte, the Coats held on to defeat the...
The College Park Skyhawks' inaugural season carries special meaning. The Hawks organization acquired the Erie BayHawks in 2017, to great acclaim. Now a mere 18-minute drive south of State Farm Arena, the Skyhawks are bringing new life to the South Atlanta community. They're also adding a new dynamic to the Hawks' player development system. One can't overstate the...

The Charlotte Hornets were perhaps the ideal matchup for a Sixers team that had struggled of late. Returning home from a west coast road trip where they finished with a 1-3 record, the Sixers met a young Hornets team on the second night of a back-to-back. Charlotte is younger, smaller, and less experienced than the 76ers.  The normal...
Intervención. Gracias por escuchar "Peleando en la cima 1x06" Después de un grandísimo inicio de temporada, ha llegado el primer bache para los Sixers, con un récord de 5-3, descendiendo hasta el 5º puesto de la Conferencia Este. Definitivamente, la gira por el Oeste que tan bien comenzó con aquel triple ganador de Korkmaz en Portland se no...
Does it get any better than this? The Delaware Blue Coats opened up the regular season in a packed 76ers Fieldhouse. With a talented roster and brand new facility to call home, it was also the Blue Coats' first season opening home game since 2016. The Blue Coats opened the regular season with a matchup vs....
26 man rosters With rosters expanding to 26 men, a new spot is up for grabs. Teams have been moving to an eight man bullpen and shorter four position player bench in recent seasons. The LOOGY is likely gone from the game due to new reliever rules. This will open up another traditional reliever spot. While a handful...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - After a tough loss to Boston on Thursday, Charlotte was in prime position to rebuild their confidence Saturday night as they faced off against the Pelicans. New Orleans entered Saturday with a 1-7 record, surrendering the most points per game in the NBA at 124.0, ranking dead last in defense. Following a poor offensive...
