A Legend Retires

This past Saturday, March 1st 2014, the Philadelphia 76ers officially retired Allen Iverson’s #3 jersey. This was undoubtedly one of the most emotional nights that this city has been through in quite some time. I was lucky enough to witness this historic event in person, so I will attempt to relay to you the feelings and emotions that were felt inside of the Wells Fargo Center that Saturday night. Words simply cannot describe how one felt physically being at the event, but I will try my best to do so.

Allen Iverson’s #3 jersey was officially retired by the Sixers on Saturday, March 1st, 2014

The actual jersey retirement ceremony was at halftime, so there was plenty of suspense leading up to the event. The stadium was packed (almost a sellout), with die-hard Sixers fans claiming their Allen Iverson bobbleheads, rubber ducks, or gumbies, all of which were being …

Very Busy Trade Deadline For the Sixers

We’ve been waiting all season for the trade deadline, and Sixers GM Sam Hinkie did NOT disappoint.

The day started out with Spencer Hawes being sent to the Cavaliers. In return for the big man, the Sixers received F Earl Clark, C Henry Sims and two 2014 second-round picks. For an expiring contract in Hawes, this is a decent return for the Sixers. Clark and Sims are both bench players that will most likely not be back in the 2014-2015 season. The second-rounders may not seem all that great, but they can handy if utilized properly. In this deep draft, talent will still be on the board in the second round. The Sixers could even use them to move around in the draft or package their assets together in another trade (because, you know…Sam Hinkie). Overall, we got something out of a player who would not have been back next …

Sixers Recap: The Tanking Continues

The Sixers (15-43) had two important games this week against teams that are also looking for the ping-pong balls to roll their way in this year’s draft lottery. The absolutely horrible Milwaukee Bucks, who are dead last in the NBA sitting at a measly 11-45, were in town Monday night. It was truly a battle of the tanking teams.

As a Sixers fan, this was probably one of the most painful games to watch. The Bucks came into this game averaging 92.3 points per game and they won

Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams have the opportunity to shine on this depleted Sixers roster.

the game 130-110. The Sixers played absolutely horrible defense and without any hustle or cohesiveness at all. This is pretty much a whole new roster thrown out on the court, which is somewhat of an excuse for the lack of togetherness on this team, so I’ll give …
