NBA Shit List: The Philadelphia 76ers, Who Are Capitalism's Diarrhea

Something confounding is happening in Philadelphia. The meanest, vilest, prosthetic-leg-stealingest fanbase in American sports has gone soft for its garbage basketball team, apparently because management promised them a present if they'll all just behave and eat their garbage basketball each night for the next few… » 12/18/14 4:27pm Yesterday 4:27pm

The Time Manute Bol Hit Six Three-Pointers In A Half

Reader Max sent along this video because he'd never seen it before, never even heard of one of the weirdest NBA happenings of all time, and he thought more people should see it. I support that sentiment entirely: everyone should watch highlights of the night 22 years ago when 7-foot-7 Manute Bol decided he only wanted… » 12/03/14 1:13pm 12/03/14 1:13pm

Let's Laugh At The Sixers Playing Completely Hapless Defense

I've been watching this on loop for a good 10 minutes, and I just now noticed that while Damian Lillard is just hanging out, probably trying to figure out if he's somehow gained the ability to freeze time, Wes Matthews is also wide fucking open in the corner. Lillard could have said, "No, this wide-open three that my… » 11/25/14 12:26pm 11/25/14 12:26pm

The Philadelphia 76ers Are A Godless Abomination

You almost certainly missed it over the weekend, but the Philadelphia 76ers made a big addition to their roster, scooping up free-agent forward Robert Covington. If you've never heard of Robert Covington, that's because he's an undrafted second-year player who had previously seen the floor in just seven NBA games, and… » 11/18/14 4:17pm 11/18/14 4:17pm

Where Every NBA Team Takes (And Gives Up) Shots

Here's a chart by our friend Ed Kupfer, who does analytics for the Houston Rockets, showing the distribution by percent of every NBA team's offensive and defensive field goals. If you take a second blink through the information overload, it's a shorthand Rosetta Stone for what's going on in the NBA. » 11/18/14 11:29am 11/18/14 11:29am

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

If Hasheem Thabeet Sits Behind You In Coach, Don't Recline Your Seat…

Update, Aug. 29: Hasheem Thabeet's publicist has reached out to say that couldn't be Thabeet in the photos below, as he didn't fly to Philadelphia in the timeframe in question (and doesn't own Beats headphone). 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
