Tony Wroten Seeing Knee Specialist

The Intelligencer‘s Tom Moore reported that Tony Wroten was scheduled to fly to California on Wednesday to get a second opinion on his sprained right knee. This is not a good thing. Mysterious knee ailments are scary, and Wroten — a 6-foot-6 guard with the strength of a bull and the explosiveness of a Russell Westbrook — is a likable guy.

He’s also not very good. Not now, at least. The 21-year-old is averaging a team-high 16.9 points, to go along with 5.2 assists, but he’s getting those numbers with DMV-like efficiency. He can’t shoot — he’s 26% from … Read the rest

1-2-3-4-5-Sixers Beat Pacers, Make Basketball Fun Again

If ever there were a game that could convince you a 15-win 20-win team was worth watching, it was this one. The Sixers and Pacers went back and forth in a contest that included 58 personal fouls, 67 free throws, and 278 lead changes. With nine seconds left, Michael Carter-Williams hit the go-ahead layup to give the Sixers a 93-92 lead. In the final possession, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute used his old man strength to force David West into a fadeaway jumper. The shot missed the iron altogether and went to Roy Hibbert, who failed to convert the … Read the rest

Sixers Offer PR Bait, Internet Takes It

It doesn’t matter how bad your team is. When LeBron James is in town, tickets sell. On Monday, 17,771 people went to the Wells Fargo Center to see the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. But with the king dealing with knee and back injuries, fans were stuck watching two bad basketball teams.

They still got to experience something that hadn’t happened since April: a home victory. Thanks to a nice game from Michael Carter-Williams and a timely Tony Wroten layup, Philly defeated the LeBron/Kyrie Irving-less Cavs, 95-92.

But you, hardworking fans of Philadelphia, deserve more than that. According Read the rest

Sixers Trade For Jared Cunningham; Will “Likely” Waive Jared Cunningham

Who is Jared Cunningham? He was a first-round pick; 24th overall by the Cavs in the 2012 draft. His draft rights were traded to Dallas, where he played him for eight games before getting dealt to the Hawks. ATL waived the 6-foot-4 shooting guard, but he’d sign with the Kings for the rest of the season. In September, Cunningham signed with the Clippers.

Who isn’t Jared Cunningham? A Sixer. This afternoon, per Woj, the Clippers reportedly sent Cunningham and cash to the Sixers to open a roster spot. He will “likely” be waived, according to Woj.

It’s been real, … Read the rest

The West Coast Trip That Was

Pre-Christmas was a good time to be a Sixers fan. The team had won back-to-back road games, the first one against the Orlando Magic, and the second an unlikely comeback win against the Miami Heat.

Sure, the Sixers and their 30 million roster were still “tanking.” But they were doing it in style. Their defense, somehow, snuck into the top 10 in efficiency. The offense, behind Michael Carter-Williams, was showing signs of life. For two games, the Sixers put a respectable product on the floor. They were a team that fans, however oblivious, could be proud of.

But that was … Read the rest

The Year In Sixers Internet

Ping-pong balls, second-round picks, cap space, and stashed Eurostars are nice. But if you’re into watching the Philadelphia 76ers win basketball games, this hasn’t been your year. Philly went 14-68 in 2014, and that’s despite starting January with three wins. The lowlight: the 26 straight losses from Jan. 31 to March 29. The highlight: the recent two-game winning streak. They’re 4-26 this year and 30-point blowouts are becoming the norm. Their most talented player, once again, is watching from the sidelines. Their former most talented player is getting pushed around and has been an offensive disaster. Their prized sophomore and … Read the rest
