Race to the Bottom

With 40 games remaining in Tank 2.0, it become obvious that the 76ers are not going to experience any Detroit Pistons-like push (9-3 in their last 12) for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.  A roster that was built to lose, and has done so nicely, is now missing its key 6th man (Tony Wroten) for an undetermined amount of time.  Additionally, the starting...

John Wall Puts Larry Drew II on Skates with Behind-the-back Crossover

Larry Drew II is playing in his third game in his very short NBA career, playing on a 10-day contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Philadelphia 76ers: Nerlens Noel’s unprecedented defensive impact

Nerlens Noel is an impressive rookie. He has been described since high school as a defensive wunderkind with a limited offensive skillset.
