76ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Scott O’Neil Fired Off an Angry Tweet at Chris Christie and Then Deleted It

Scott O’Neil’s return to Twitter didn’t all go smoothly: While speaking yesterday, Chris Christie said “The only thing the 76ers will do in Philadelphia once they move into Camden is lose.” Never mind that Christie’s state gave the Sixers $80 million in tax breaks to build in Camden, and that his basketball team jumped ship for Brooklyn, and that he’s spent the last...

John Smallwood Thinks Dario Saric is a Liar

Dario Saric has said time and again that he’ll play for the Sixers next year if they’ll have him. But that flies in the face of the tired narrative that Sam Hinkie’s seeds will never grow into trees (or even shrubs). So John Smallwood, ignoring all evidence to the contrary, threw up “Don’t believe Dario Saric is coming to the Sixers until he gets here” today. And I do...

Philadelphia 76ers: Could Brett Brown be the next to go?

When you think of “The Process”, you think of two guys associated with it in some way. One is Sam Hinkie, the former general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, and the second is Brett Brown, the current head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. Both guys have been with the 76ers since the first day of “The Process”, so you could wonder whether Brett Brown could be the next guy...

Sixers FO to fan: Want season tickets? Ditch Hinkie jersey

Looks like “The Process” is dead for the Philadelphia 76ers, as general manager Stan Hinkie resigned his position earlier this week. It was a polarizing move, and some fans have taken to showing their displeasure in “the process” being thrown away by rocking Hinkie jerseys this past week.

Nerlens Noel throws down sick alley-oop from half court (VIDEO)

The 76ers have had a rough 2016 campaign, but former legend Allen Iverson was in the house at Wells Fargo Center on Friday night and it fired the team up. Nerlens Noel certainly responded well, judging by the way he caught an alley-oop from half court and slammed it home with authority. Look what Noel did to Robin Lopez, who tried to break up the pass but got posterized instead.

Sixers ownership lost its nerve in forcing out Sam Hinkie

The current state of the Sixers, and the painful path they took to get here, are a direct result of one man: Sam Hinkie. When Hinkie took over as the team’s general manager three years ago, he knew he had to free the team from the muck of mediocrity that is being a perennial seven or eight seed in the NBA. He immediately embarked on a campaign of acquiring assets. He cleared the...

The Timetables Of Jahlil Okafor's Trade Value, Joel Embiid's Return

Sam Hinkie disregarded Jahlil Okafor's fit with the young core of the Philadelphia 76ers and followed his mantra by taking who he thought was the best player available at pick No. 3 in the 2015 NBA Draft. The rookie season of Okafor has demonstrated he might be the type of player that won't mesh effectively with Philadelphia's other bigs. One season might be enough of a sample size...
