|Three obvious reasons the Sixers lost this game, 105-101 to the Nuggets. Which one do you like best? 1. Outscored by 30 points from three. (5 threes to 15) 2. Outworked on the boards (41 to 34 overall, 12 to 8 on the offensive glass) 3. Can't hit a free throw (18/30, 60%)|
|I consider it a special treat to have had the chance to watch LeBron James play in a home-and-home because usually I don't get to see so much of his game. I occasionally catch a game here and there, but I almost never watch wire to wire. Over the past three days, I got to do that twice. I came away with no question in my mind that he's not only the best player in the game, but he's also the best passer. My only regret is that his greatness happened at the Sixers expense.|
|Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala seemed to find their games tonight. Elton Brand may have come back too soon. Mo presses a panic button, but it's absolutely the wrong one to push. At the end of the night, LeBron was just too much for this befuddled Sixers team.|
|This was a game the Sixers really had to win. You can't lose to bad teams at home. It's heartening that they're back to .500. It's good to see them string together about 5 minutes of quality basketball, on...|
|Over the summer and throughout the preseason we heard, time and time again, how Andre Iguodala was hard at work on his jumper. Rumor has it, he was shooting 500 threes per day, getting his jumper ready for prime time...|
|The Sacramento Kings are heading into town tonight and with them comes their leading scorer (for the moment) John Salmons. Salmons was the Sixers' first-round pick in 2002, the year after they made their run to the finals and...|
Latest comment: from BrianI see him draining a three at the buzzer and just smiling ear to ear as he walks off the court. ...
|This one bothers me. The opening night loss you can chalk up to jitters, I guess. Tonight, you could make the excuse that it was the second night of a back-to-back, on the road, against a well-rested team in their...|
|First things first, it now looks like we won't have to call the Wach, the Citi going forward. Wachovia, the bank which owns the naming rights to the Sixers' arena, eschewed a government-backed deal to sell itself to CitiGroup in...|
|In part four of our Looking Ahead series will focus on the least-appreciated member of the Sixers, Andre Iguodala. From the coverage he's gotten in the press you'd think he's an average player. After the jump, the numbers will tell...|
|The Inquirer has the scoop (thanks to Joe for the link). It looks like 6 years/$80M with another $5M in incentives and the 6th season is a player option. A hefty price, but again, the Sixers had to get it...|
Latest comment: from BrianYup, it's hard to predict. I think we fall somewhere between 2nd and 6th definitely, probably 3rd or 4th....
|Well, the waiting is over. For all intents and purposes, our roster is set. ESPN.com is reporting the Sixers and Andre Iguodala have agreed on a 6-year, $80M extension.Too much money? Probably. We've gone over that time and time again....|

|When I read earlier this morning that the Griz were offering Josh Smith $58M for 5 years I didn't think there was anyway he'd sign, simply because it's such an easy decision for the Hawks to match. I truly believed...|
|Over the past twenty-four hours I've read just about every forum thread, blog post, article and comment on the Andre Iguodala situation and there seems to be a common theme regarding the rumored 5 year/$72.6M contract he may or may...|
|Phillyburbs.com has a brief piece on the Iguodala situation. The key point seems to be that Iguodala's contract wouldn't put the Sixers over the luxury tax threshold.At the end of the story, the writer quotes sources as saying they're close...|
|When Elton Brand signed with the Sixers many people, myself included, thought this was the beginning of long stretch of relevancy for hoops in Philly. How could you not? The much-needed low-post threat was added to the mix. The front...|
