If you asked 100 casual NBA fans (with neither PHI nor MIL loyalties) which duo is better: Andre Iguodala/Jrue Holiday or Brandon Jennings/Stephen Jackson, about 90 of them would say the latter. 17,281 people in Philadelphia got a first hand look at just how wrong those 90 people are today. The Sixers cruised to another double-digit win over the Bucks, 94-82, on MLK day. (game capsule)|
|Another slow start, followed by a big second quarter, a decent third and then a slow-play to the finish line. The Sixers could've played better tonight, but a 13-point win on the second night of a back-to-back is something you have to be happy with. (game capsule)|
|It was a very, very ugly game with a ton of bad shots, virtually none of the ball movement we've seen all year from this team, tired legs and a metric ton of heart, but it wasn't meant to be. The Sixers win streak was halted at six by the mostly inept New York Knicks. (game capsule).|
|In front of a pitifully small crowd (8,612) the first-place Sixers put another team to sleep. The Pacers were without Danny Granger and George Hill, but they put up a much better fight than the first two teams to enter the WFC. Ultimately, their fate was the same, though a double-digit win for the home team. (game capsule)|
|With four games in the books and one left on the season-opening road trip, let's take a look at some early trends (for the team and the players) and see if we can pick out the ones that encourage/worry/excite us, and which are most likely to continue.|
|Fight back against a good team on the road: check. Demolish a bad team on the road: check. Build up a big lead, don't let the other team come back: check. Three minor items on the Sixers to-do list early in the season, all three in the yes column. 103-83 was the final in Phoenix last night (game capsule).|
|The amnesty clause is going to be debated back and forth for the next couple of weeks, and possibly longer among every fan base in the league. For the Sixers, you're probably going to hear three names mentioned. Elton Brand, because he hasn't lived up to his contract. Andre Iguodala, because there's a moronic hatred toward the guy. And finally, Andres Nocioni, because he hasn't lived up to his contract and there's a legitimate hatred for the guy. Let's start with the mullet. (Skip to the end for my first meltdown of the 2011-2012 season)|

|Dei Lynam caught up to Andre Iguodala on the golf course yesterday and grabbed a few quotes on the lingering lockout and his plans should it stretch through the season.|
|Yesterday, we argued the comparative values of two bench players, Lou Williams and Thad Young. Today, let's tackle a bigger question. Jrue Holiday vs. Andre Iguodala.|
|This time last year most of us were looking forward to a new perimeter trio for the Sixers. Jrue Holiday at the point, Evan Turner at shooting guard and Andre Iguodala at small forward. A lot has happened between now and then, most of it not involving those three players at those three positions at the same time. Today, let's take a look back at the season and see if J.T.I. was given a chance, how well they performed and maybe take a look into the future as well.|
|Perhaps the days of the Sixers puff piece from CSN will come to an end once Comcast no longer owns the team, but for the time being, Dei Lynam is definitely churning them out. Yesterday, she reported on Andre Iguodala's appearance at Part of the Solution Community Day. What made this appearance noteworthy? Well, Iguodala actually looked happy.|
|Sam Amick drops two Andre Iguodala trade rumor bombshells tonight. One: Andre Iguodala for Lamar Odom and possibly Ron Artest. Two: Andre Iguodala for the number two pick in the draft from Minnesota. My thoughts to follow.|
|The man of the hour is non other than the exit-interview skipping, rumor mill grist, scourge of Philly.com (AKA the best player on the Sixers), Andre Iguodala. Let's take a look at how his on-court performance measured up to my preseason predcitions.|
|Statman returns with a heavy heart to breakdown Andre Iguodala's performance in 2010-2011 versus every other starting small forward in the league. Be sure to check out his work on Jrue's numbers from last week. Check out the numbers and discuss. Iguodala's prediction vs. performance will land tomorrow.|

|Since it seems like everyone who's in favor of trading Andre Iguodala for Monta Ellis views Ellis' superduper scoring ability as more valuable than Iguodala's all-around game, I thought I'd do a little math exercise to see exactly how much Monta's 24PPG would've helped the Sixers this past season.|
