Are playoffs possible?

In reality the playoffs are possible, especially since Philadelphia presently sits 5.5 games out of the eight seed. But it’s highly unlikely Philadelphia makes the playoffs this season. Last night’s win against Toronto, however, feels like a validation for the Philadelphia 76ers. The Raptors played their second game in as many nights, but Kyle Lowry […]

The Return of Ben Simmons: It might be next week

It’s unclear when Ben Simmons will return. Yesterday the league announced Philly’s game against Houston next Friday night will be changed to 8 p.m. on ESPN. Moments later Simmons posted this on Instagram:  He’s coming soon, but could this mean Simmons will make his debut on national television as originally scheduled in October? Brett Brown prematurely […]

The Process drops 20 in debut

Wednesday night was surreal for many reasons. It’s easy to build things up just for it to blow up in your face. It’s easy to get excited looking forward to something only for it to come crashing down. Joel Embiid didn’t disappoint in his first ever NBA game. The place was loud. The fans chanting […]

Joel Embiid’s first NBA game

Joel Embiid plays his first real professional basketball game tonight. Philadelphia will probably lose because they happen to be the first victims of the Russell Westbrook revenge tour, but just having No. 21 on the court in a game that counts will be wonderful to see. It’s been 970 days since Embiid played a game […]

Early Impressions of Joel “The Process” Embiid

Joel Embiid played three preseason games in six days. He played 38 minutes. He scored 23 points. He had good moments (a dunk, a 3-pointer and a beautiful post-up bucket); he had bad moments (six total turnovers, an air ball turnaround and a 36 field goal percentage). Embiid’s restricted to 12 minute this preseason. It’s […]

Loss to Detroit could prove costly

It shouldn’t have happened. It’s a game the Eagles should have won, and with three divisional road games, the Minnesota Vikings, Atlanta Falcons, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers on deck it might be a game the Eagles wish they had back. It’s easy to blame Ryan Mathews. Why did he fight for extra yardage? […]

The Aftermath of Losing Ben Simmons

It’s less than ideal to lose Ben Simmons for an extended period of time. It seems unfair to have another high draft pick sit out for who knows how long. This will be the fourth straight year a Philadelphia top pick misses a chunk of their rookie season. The excitement surrounding Joel Embiid’s debut might […]

Thoughts on the Philadelphia 76ers

It’s hard to believe the NBA season begins soon. It feels like yesterday Kyrie Irving sunk a 3-pointer that ultimately gave Cleveland a championship. This year, similar to how I’m writing about the Eagles after each game, I’m going to write exclusively about the 76ers. Not many teams have as much excitement surrounding them as […]
