Looking ahead to the 76ers 2013 NBA Draft

Evan Turner may or may not be part of the 76ers in the future.It’s one week until the NBA holds the 2013 Draft and the Philadelphia 76ers have a new GM, Sam Hinkie, but they don’t have a head coach. That process is developing slowly as the analytical Hinkie is somewhere crunching numbers on who he believes will best be suited for a mostly young and misguided team. (I say misguided, because Doug Collins was inept at teaching and coaching young players leaving players like Evan Turner and Arnett Moultrie to ultimately waste a lot of time under his time here.) Regardless of who the 76ers choose as their next head coach, they will take over a team with …

76ers Need Substance This Offseason & Forget Doug Collins

Jrue Holiday needs a better team put around him to put a winning team together for him.It’s been a couple of weeks since the Philadelphia 76ers (34-48) ended their season with a 105-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers. Doug Collins is out as Head Coach and Jrue Holiday is the assists leader for the Eastern Conference. That’s about all there is for the good news. That’s not really the truth, but there’s not much to be happy about with the 2012-13 76ers.

There’s no better way to describe the Philadelphia 76ers (34-48) season then to call is a disgrace. It’s a disgrace because “disappointment” just doesn’t cut it when you’re looking back over the course of the past season …

Doug Collins Steps Down, Finally Shows the Right Way to Lead

Doug Collins will reportedly step down as Philadelphia 76ers' Head Coach after the season.The Philadelphia 76ers started this season with a lot of promise and a huge question mark. The promise came from last seasons playoff berth, the expected improvement of Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, and the arrival of Andrew Bynum. The huge question was when Bynum would allow the 76ers to put the complete package on the floor. It never happened.

In a season that saw the team dominated by any type of big man in the post, Doug Collins refused to put rookie Arnett Moultrie on the floor. When he’s been on the floor, however limited the time has been, Moultrie has produced. …

76ers Final Weekend Is a Winning One over Wizards & Cavaliers

Jrue Holiday led the 76ers to two victories this weekend over Cleveland & Washington.With the NBA regular season coming to an end the Philadelphia 76ers (33-47) have nothing but pride to play for. They’re playing to finish strong in a season where it seems that nothing has gone right. From the mess that has been the Andrew Bynum trade, to Jason Richardson getting hurt, to Jrue Holiday going 2-24 shooting in a game, to Doug Collins murky future with the team , nothing has been easy this season and it certainly hasn’t played out like they thought it would back in the fall.

Friday night, in Washington against the Wizards (29-51), the 76ers, again, fell behind by 13 …

76ers Lack of Power Does Them In a Nets Win 104-83

The Brooklyn Nets' Reggie Evans was a difference in their win over the 76ers Tuesday night.It’s the story we’ve come to know all too well this year as the opposing teams big men overpower what the 76ers put on the floor. This time is was Brook Lopez with 29 points and 11 rebounds teaming with Reggie Evans who finished with 17 points and 24 rebounds to help lead the Brooklyn Nets (45-32) beat up on the 76ers (31-46) by a final score of 104-83.

Evans and Lopez scored 25 points combined in the 1st quarter to help Brooklyn jump out to a 31-18 lead at the end of the quarter. Between the two of them they out rebounded the whole 76ers …

76ers Fall Apart Against the Jazz and lose 107-91

Damien Wilkins defends Randy Foye on a jumper in the Jazz's victory over the 76ers Monday night.Not even Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates could be this unpredictable. The 76ers went in to Utah to play the Jazz (35-36) and on a high after beating up on the Kings to end their 15 game away losing streak. What they ran in to was a Utah team that was desperate to end their own 4 game losing streak and keep their playoff hopes alive. The Jazz jumped out to an early lead and it was over before it could even get good as they defeated the 76ers 107-91.

The 76ers had too many turnovers, thirteen, that led to too many points, twenty-four, for the Jazz. …

Hawes leads the 76ers over the Nets 106-97 After a Long Weekend

Jrue Holiday goes up for a shot in the Philadelphia 76ers win over the Brooklyn Nets Monday night.What’s the best cure for a two weeks stomach virus? If you said a 76ers win, then you would be correct. First, on Friday night in Miami, the Heat (47-14) beat up the 76ers 102-93. Then, on Sunday in Orlando, the Magic (18-46) beat down the 76ers 99-91 behind Jameer Nelson and that Nikola Vucevic kid that we dumped for the city’s biggest bowler. If those two things got you down, like they did me, then last night when the 76ers played the Nets (37-27) you would have felt a lot better watching the 76ers win 106-97 to end the …

Philadelphia 76ers Preview for March 4-10

Jrue Holiday needs to find his shot if the Philadelphia 76ers are to have any chance in the week ahead.The 76ers have had a rough go of late. Since February 9th they’re 1-8 with a 7 game losing streak, one lucky win over the Golden State Warriors and then a meltdown against John Wall and the Washington Wizards. This upcoming week doesn’t look very good either. It actually looks plain nasty.  Three of their four games this week are against playoff teams Boston, Atlanta, and the defending champion Miami Heat.

76ers Back to their Old Habits, losing 90-87 to the Wizards

John Wall celebrates making a shot at the end of the Washington Wizards win over the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night.Old habits die hard and so it is with the hometown Philadelphia 76ers. They fall behind, fight back, and just don’t have enough to complete the comeback and taste victory. A day after doing just that to the Golden State Warriors and snapping a seven game losing streak in the process, the 76ers (23-35) fell to the Washington Wizards (19-39) by a score of 90-87 on Sunday night.

John Wall single-handedly beat the 76ers in the end, scoring the final six points of the game, including blocking Evan Turner’s final shot and hitting a 20 foot jumper …

76ers are “Competitive” but Fall to the Bulls 93-82

Carlos Boozer looks to drive while being defended by Spencer Hawes in the 76ers loss to the Chicago Bulls Thursday night.You know that you’ve reached the end of the line when the coach is using the word “competitive”. It’s over for the 76ers and it’s time to let it go. Last night in Chicago the Bulls (33-25) handed the 76ers (22-34) their seventh straight loss 93-82 behind Joakim Noah‘s triple double (23 points, 21 rebounds, 11 blocks). Think about that for a second. Noah had a triple double with 11 blocks and over 20 rebounds.  The 76ers have a way of making mediocre to good players look like they’re the second coming of Wilt …
