NBA Player Has Invalid Opinion; NBA Writers Spread It

On Wednesday, Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe appeared on Sirius XM’s The Starting Lineup and was asked how No. 1 Kentucky, his alma mater, would fare against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers in a seven-game series.

Bledsoe, an expert in all things college and professional basketball, told co-hosts Brian Geltzeiler and Malik Rose that “I’m definitely taking Kentucky … I think Philly will probably get maybe one game.” And predictably, his words spread like wildfire. Just about every website that had anything to do with the Sixers, the Wildcats, the NBA, or the NCAA had some variation of a ‘Bledsoe thinks Read the rest

Wake Me Up When This Season Ends

1. How much longer can you take this?

Goldwein: Games like last night’s? I mean, the basketball was presumably bad (I didn’t watch), but the reaction from the anti-tankers on Twitter was insufferable. The 2014-15 Sixers are a terrible team. Terrible teams lose the occasional 50-point game. It’ll get better.

Dimoff: Believe it or not, I’m actually enjoying this! The Sixers are hanging tough in basically every game they play (for at least three quarters), and and the last two contests against Toronto and Dallas were really the first two hard-to-watch games of the season thus … Read the rest

Michael Carter-Williams Hates Losing, Loves Ellen

What’s it like being part of one of the most blatant tank jobs in the history of professional sports? Well, over at The Players’ Tribune — Derek Jeter’s recently launched media/PR platform — Michael Carter-Williams provides his unfiltered (!) first-hand (!) account of the experience. The Sixers point guard is listed as the contributing editor of a 1,000-word article discussing last season, and his frustration with the media’s coverage of the 26-game losing streak.

Via The Players’ Tribune:

Here’s the thing: I can understand why the media seized onto the story. My problem is that it was missing a

5-on-5: Shaking Our Shveds

1. Which Sixer has been the biggest disappointment?

Eric Goldwein: The thing about low expectations is that they’re easy to live up to. Like, Brandon Davies showed for a game, Alexey Shved once hit a jumper, Wroten’s only averaging 4.5 TOs, and I’m enthused. If I had to pick one, I’d say Sims. He’s shooting 41 percent, not getting to the line, and not playing great defense. Not that I’d expected anything from the undrafted third-year player.

Wesley Share: Henry Sims. I was hoping to see some bigger strides from him this year. It’s obviously a long season, … Read the rest

Sixers Try Really Hard Again, Still Lose To Rockets

Houston Rockets 104 Final
Recap | Box Score
93 Philadelphia 76ers
Brandon Davies, PF 24 MIN | 5-10 FG | 2-3 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 13 PTS | -15It wasn’t quite like Saturday’s performance, but 13 points on 10 shots and 3 assists/no turnovers is the statline of a real NBA forward.

The Arnett Moultrie Era Is Over

It seems like just yesterday that the Sixers traded the 45th pick and a future protected first-rounder for Arnett Moultrie, the 27th pick in the 2012 draft. The 6-foot-10 power forward’s stock had dropped, so in theory, this was a buy-low play. But for a variety of reasons, Moultrie didn’t produce in his first two seasons and his stock remained in the gutters. And just as he reportedly started to whip himself into shape, management decided it had enough.

This afternoon, Philly dealt Moultrie to the New York Knicks in exchange for Travis Outlaw, a 2019 second-rounder, and the rights … Read the rest
