Michael Carter-Williams, Professed Non-Tanker, Tanks

The 76ers are a sorry excuse for a professional sports franchise. Last season they had the second worst record in the league. During the draft this offseason they had two top-12 picks, and chose to take a guy that has a season-long injury and a guy that is going to play in Europe this year. They've yet to win a game… » 11/13/14 11:59pm 11/13/14 11:59pm

The 76ers Do Not Even Care Who Is On Their Team Anymore

The Philadelphia 76ers currently sport a roster that appears to be made up of guys who were spat into the world by NBA 2K15's player creator. According to the team's official site, the Sixers got a little more unreal today, as the team apparently signed 43-year-old power forward Bo Outlaw, who retired in 2007. » 10/27/14 6:27pm 10/27/14 6:27pm

Sorry folks. But still: don't recline your seat if there's a really tall person behind you, even if they… » 8/27/14 10:46am 8/27/14 10:46am

76ers Ask NBA To Delay Anti-Tanking Measures Until They're Done Tanking

A couple weeks back, it was reported that the NBA was attempting to push through changes to its draft lottery system: a re-weighting of the odds that would discourage tanking. The Philadelphia 76ers would reportedly like the NBA to hold on a sec, because they're not finished being terrible. » 7/30/14 2:47pm 7/30/14 2:47pm

Ballin' Ben Franklin Probably Won't Be The 76ers' New Logo

Well this is a bummer. Images of a what was reported to be the Philadelphia 76ers' new alternate logo leaked out on Twitter last night, and everyone was very excited at the prospect of Ballin' Ben Franklin having a home on an NBA uniform. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Ballin' Ben Franklin is going to make it… » 6/24/14 9:09am 6/24/14 9:09am

This NESN Reporter Does Not Seem To Understand Irony

NESN reporter Ben Watanabe is very upset at the Philadelphia 76ers. If you were to read the first half of this, you might come away with the impression that Ben Watanabe is upset at the Sixers for being so tight-lipped with the media about Andrew Wiggins's recent pre-draft workouts. But that's not really why Watanabe… » 6/18/14 6:06pm 6/18/14 6:06pm
