76ers Summer

NBA Summer League for the 76ers begins Friday night against the ever familiar Boston Celtics. In previous summers watching rookies like Jahlil Okafor and Ben Simmons play could be categorized as the highlight of the actual season. It’s different now, after winning 52 games, but there are three first rounders, all guards, the 76ers drafted…

“We Are Star Hunting…”

Brett Brown inspired a ton of confidence during his presser following the first round of the 2018 NBA Draft Thursday night. “We are star hunting,” said the man who couldn’t foresee being in this position five weeks ago. In what’s most likely his only draft as “final decision-maker” for the 76ers, Brown made a statement,…

General 76ers Thoughts

The TJ McConnell Game

A few years ago, my sister and I had discussions about TJ McConnell. Philadelphia won 10 games McConnell’s rookie year, and it’s not like McConnell impressed that much. Sam Hinkie never addressed the point guard position heading into that season, opting for cheap options like Pierre Jackson, McConnell and Kendall Marshall. Marshall was the presumed…

Ben Simmons Scored A Point

Ben Simmons being a minus 23 in a game didn’t seem possible. Just look at his last couple months. Even though he scored single-digits on more than one occasion, it didn’t seem possible he could play as poorly as he did Thursday night. There was the last regular season game against Milwaukee, but he only…
