In defense of 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie

The Philadelphia 76ers did not win the NBA Draft lottery. Cue the laugh-out-loud op-eds in which holier than thou columnists mock Sam Hinkie for the futility of his strategy because, God forbid, he actually did something different. We get it, Deadspin, you’re the smartest guys in the room and you need all of us to know it, but maybe let a guy have more than two seasons on the...

The History of No. 3

Next month, the 76ers have the number three overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.  All of us here at Philadunkia are hoping and praying, just like all of you, that Sam Hinkie will select a player that has a huge impact on this franchise for years to come (cough…D’Angelo Russell..cough) and one would think that type of player would be very easy to find and draft at No. 3. However...

76ers win right to trade draft picks forever

This is basically the funniest thing on the Internet. 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie has been trying to lose for years. Apparently, Albert Burneko over at Deadspin thinks it's going to continue for another decade or so. Here's what Burneko had to say after the 76ers got the third overall pick in Tuesday night's draft lottery: "It worked because, tonight, the NBA draft lottery gave...

By the end of the evening, we learned Philly would be picking third this coming June.  Some thoughts...

Philadelphia 76ers: The emergence of Robert Covington

As the 2014-15 NBA season comes to an end and free agency approaches, the Philadelphia 76ers must evaluate their roster on who they need to keep and let go.

Surely, both of these...

Philadelphia 76ers: are we good yet?

Over the past three years, the Philadelphia 76ers have been labeled as the laughing stock of the NBA. A team defined by poor teamwork, terrible shooting, and a General Manager in Sam Hinkie who has simply lost his mind. Although this current Sixers basketball team is one of the worst in the league, they have a vision; a detailed plan that in theory will launch them from the mediocrity...

Draft Lottery: Iverson > Noel

One way or another, the 76ers will continue to add to their young core in this summer’s NBA Draft.  Depending on how the ping-pong balls bounce in the upcoming Draft Lottery, the Sixers could own as few as one or as many as three 1st round selections at the 2015 NBA Draft.  The organization obviously needs a lot of luck in said Lottery. After the news broke that Julius Erving...

76ers Talk: Brett Brown’s Future

For the Philadelphia 76ers to have so many relevant injuries (Tony Wroten, Joel Embiid, Pierre Jackson), be devoid of any real NBA talent, and still play the way they did this season was a small miracle. Not only that, but the roster itself has been a revolving door with a whopping 31 players on payroll for this year. No, that was not a typo.  The 76ers, an NBA team, had 31 players...

Thomas Robinson Finds His Niche

​ A few months ago, I wrote that I believed former lottery pick Thomas Robinson still had the talent to recover from his label as a bust—if only he is signed into the right team situation, which had yet to occur in his NBA career. Mere weeks after I wrote the article, Robinson was traded. He went from his somewhat stable home in Portland over to the Denver Nuggets—mostly...
