Brett Brown’s Final Games

Brett Brown’s Final Games

This month seven years ago the 76ers hired Brett Brown as head coach. August, a typical barren period in the NBA schedule is anything but this season. It’s highly likely this will be Brown’s final regular season games. His tenure, marked by tanking, a rotating cast of point guards, injuries, sheer weirdness, has remained a [...]

Farewell, Malcolm Jenkins

Farewell, Malcolm Jenkins

Over the past six years, the Philadelphia Eagles have experienced dramatic change. Chip Kelly. Sam Bradford. Doug Pederson. Carson Wentz. The one constant has been Malcolm Jenkins.

At least once a week, however, I find myself there. Either checking out a book, renewing one to maintain a literary [...]

Markelle Fultz, A Goner

The day I turned 25 the Philadelphia 76ers traded for the first pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. It felt too good to be true. Ben Simmons would begin his rookie season months from then. Joel Embiid would be healthy after dominating his first 31 games, too. Philadelphia needed a third young stud to pair [...]
