Click for full story. Take one team, with nothing at all to play for, on the second night of a back-to-back, with injury problems and questionable effort. Make them play on the road against a relatively well-rested, physical, defensive team, coached by Larry Brown fighting for playoff seeding, and well, this just simply isn't going to be pretty. Preview and game thread after the jump.

Click for full story. When we look at the SIxers' salary situation next season, it's hard to find a way to wiggle them under the luxury tax with some kind of a trade. There is one thing that could change that equation, though. Willie Green's early-termination option.

Click for full story. Believe it or not, I thoroughly enjoyed that game. The Sixers didn't mail this one in, the guys on the floor played hard. There was some excitement in the form of a half dozen Iguodala dunks and Elton Brand's excellent play on the blocks. It was a disappointment to see Jrue saddled with foul problems, but overall, a fun game to watch. If a win mattered, it would've maddened me, but all I was really looking for was some entertainment out of the night, and the teams delivered.

Click for full story. I'm jealous of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Not because I think they're necessarily contenders. Not because they won the lottery even without suffering through a full-on tank season and not because they have Kevin Durant. I'm jealous of OKC because they have actually created an identity and their players are developing on an upward trend. Is that really too much to ask from a team?

Click for full story. The next time someone tells you no one cares about the Sixers, get them to take a look at yesterday's post and the 220+ comments from Sixers fans. I'm proud of you guys for carrying the torch and I can only hope that some day the franchise will put a product on the court worthy of your devotion. Let's keep the momentum going with another question today, check it out after the jump.

Click for full story. Kate Fagan's article this morning talks a lot about a glaring need for the Sixers, a shooting guard. This is nothing new, and the past two games illustrate the difference having a capable spot-up shooter can make to the other players who will most likely be on the team next season. Here's my question to you: Why does the perimeter threat have to come from the shooting guard?

Click for full story. Just one day without lamenting the ramifications of this win, that's my proposal. Forget about how important losses are and just revel in what was an excellent game of basketball and hopefully a glimpse of what will fuel this team in the future (Jrue and Iguodala). Spend your Saturday thinking about the game on the court we saw Friday night, the other stuff, well it can wait until Sunday.

Click for full story. The Hawks are currently deadlocked with the Celtics for the #3 seed in the East, only 3.5 games behind the Magic (who they beat on Wednesday) for the #2 seed, and clearly have a ton of motivation to win this game against the cellar-dwelling Sixers. Hopefully, the Sixers don't realize that and try to do something foolish, like play the spoiler.

Click for full story. If you missed SixersBeat last night, Derek and I spent some time talking about the draft, and the core group of players who have the highest likelihood of making a big impact on the roster. You can listen to the replay here. After the jump, I want to expand upon the logic a bit and maybe draw a line in the sand.

Click for full story. Derek Bodner and I will host another episode of SixersBeat tonight at 8pm. Topics of discussion will be the push for the #4 seed, Thad's ankle injury, DiLeo's laid back demeanor on the bench and Andre Miller playing through a foot injury. Man, this show would've been much more fun this time last year. Info after the jump.
