Click for full story. Another first for your 2009-2010 Sixers tonight in New York, their first back-to-back of the season. Oddly enough, the Sixers will actually be the better rested team heading into the game.

Click for full story. After a solid start, the Sixers sputtered in the second quarter, but were definitely born again hard when they came out of the locker room for the second half. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall in there for Eddie Jordan's halftime speech. The Sixers are back to .500 after cruising though the fourth quarter to a 99-86 win over the rudderless Milwaukee Bucks.

Click for full story. The Sixers will continue their hunt for win number one tonight in their home opener. In their sights, the Milwaukee Bucks. Unfortunately, I can't come up with a third hunting reference to fit....wait....Brandon Jennings will be making his first career start at the point, hopefully he'll look like a deer in the headlights! There it is. Preview and game thread after the jump.

Click for full story. I have legitimate concerns about Elton Brand at this point. I haven't seen anything which points toward him making a full recovery from his achilles injury. The shoulder isn't an issue. Last season, before the shoulder injury, I saw signs that we was rounding into form, this is why I'm still holding out hope. Through the preseason and the first game of the season, those signs haven't returned. But before we sign off the failure of the Elton Brand contract, can we let him play more than 25 minutes in a meaningful game? Apparently, Tim Povtak of Fanhouse can't, and he won't be the last to jump the gun.

Click for full story. The morning after a devastating loss either brings hope for a new day, or constant nagging second thoughts about everything you had hoped would be true. This morning brought nothing but the latter to this fan. Advanced stats etc. from Game 1 after the jump.

Click for full story. For a team who made it one step away from the promised land, the Orlando Magic made a boatload of changes over the summer. You don't usually see this kind of turnover after a surprisingly successful run, but Orlando was bold. After the jump we'll take a look at the matchups and try to figure out if this Magic team will look anything like the team that ended the Sixers season last April.

Click for full story. At 7pm tonight we can stop the guesswork. We can stop hoping, dreaming, dreading. Finally, we can simply start watching. The Sixers will play a basketball game that counts for the first time since their embarrassing Game 6 loss back in April. As fate would have it, their shot at redemption will come immediately in Orlando. After the jump, we'll take some time to discuss what you can expect from this blog over the course of the season.

Click for full story. In the course of reading numerous Sixers previews this week, I've come across at least five people lamenting Sam Dalembert's contract. In fact, some have called him the most overpaid player in the league. Make no mistake, Billy King was a horrible, atrocious general manager and he should've never given Dalembert that contract, but when people talk about Dalembert as being a horrible contract, they almost always miss the point.

Click for full story. CSN has shuffled their Sixers broadcast team, moving Dei Lynam to the pre- and postgame coverage. They brought in Jaime Maggio (pictured above) to replace Lynam as their sideline reporter. There's also a report that Donyell Marshall will join the pre- and postgame coverage as well.

Click for full story. With so many unknowns on the eve of the opener, I'm going to take a safer route in making my predictions now that I've witnessed the preseason in all its glory. After the jump, I'll take a look at the first 10 games and we'll go from there.

Click for full story. I put together a worksheet with the Sixers individual stats from the preseason, take a gander but keep a couple things in mind. (1) The Sixers played an exceptionally easy preseason schedule. (2) They were learning new offensive and defensive systems on the go. (3) Coach Jordan spent the better part of the last three games working different rotations.
