The Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Toronto Raptors 108-98 Nov. 20, and the score misleadingly implies that the game was a close one. Typically a subpar three-point shooting team (shooting 32.6 percent as a team before the game, a percentage that ranked 22nd out of 30 teams in the NBA), the Raptors were simply unconscious […]

Last offseason the Philadelphia 76ers were celebrating the arrival of 7-foot All-Star center Andrew Bynum and sharpshooter Jason Richardson. Bynum and Richardson were greeted to roaring crowds while Sixers fans dreamed of a playoff run led by their new big man and budding young star Jrue Holiday.

The Philadelphia 76ers entered the 2012 offseason with many unanswered questions regarding the team’s future on the court. Over the last few years, the 76ers’ organization has struggled to choose a defined path for the team. Despite a first-round playoff series win against the top-seeded Chicago Bulls and a grueling seven-game series against a veteran […]

Proud.” The fans are passionate, and the players are intense, but it is hard to be proud. The Sixers lost Game 7 to the Celtics, and […]

Andrew Toney, a shooting guard who could score just about any way imaginable, always dominated the Celtics, especially in the 1982 Eastern Conference Finals, where he averaged 26 points per game. Due […]
