Click for full story. Sam Hinkie did his roster destruction over the summer to set things up for the 2014 draft. Masai Ujiri appears to be doing his on the fly...maybe. Getting rid of Rudy Gay made the Raptors better. Forget about the players he got back, losing Gay was addition by subtraction, and if he stops there it wasn't a tanking move, but rumors have Kyle Lowry as the next man out of Toronto, which would signify an organizational tank job.

Click for full story. The Sixers begin their two-game road trip tonight in Minnesota against a much improved T-Wolves squad. Minny should be much, much better than their 10-11 record. They sport the #7 defense in the league, and they're #11 on the offensive end. This one shouldn't be close.

Click for full story. Recently we've seen the Sixers defense make a horrid offensive team look like world beaters. Tonight, they Los Angeles Clippers, with the #4 offense in the league, will pad their stats and run the Sixers right off the floor.

Click for full story. If MCW's knee injury keeps him out again, the Sixers probably don't have a shot tonight against the Denver Nuggets. In this season filled with needed losses for the bigger picture, icing MCW is probably a good move, but I'd still love to see him abuse Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson. The matchup would've been unfair. Oh well.

Click for full story. The Charlotte Bobcats have the #3 defense in the league. The Charlotte Bobcats!!!! Wow. Granted, they're second-to-last in OFR, but it's pretty amazing they're so good on the defensive end, and it's no surprise they're hovering close to .500 with that type of production on the defensive end.

Click for full story. The Sixers will face a much different Magic team tonight from the one they lost to less than a week ago. The Magic will have to find a way to make up for the absence of big man Nikola Vucevic, who torched the Sixers for 21/16 last time. On the other hand, they will have the benefit of Jameer Nelson's absence...probably a wash overall.

Click for full story. A couple years back - when wins, losses and the playoffs were things of import to the Sixers - the Bulls annihilated the Sixers by 40+ points early in the year. It was one of the most demoralizing losses in recent history for the franchise. The next time they met Chicago, they were ready and they took down the Bulls. I don't expect that type of turnaround from their 37-point loss in New Orleans a few weeks back, but they better at least show some fight.

Click for full story. Nikola Vucevic has made tremendous strides in his three seasons in the NBA. In the past two years, he's gone from an inefficient big who rebounds really well to a legitimate offensive weapon who probably doesn't get enough touches.

Click for full story. After 24 minutes in Indy, the Sixers are clearly playing the aggressor. Down 4 with a couple quarters to go, can they keep up the pressure and squeak out a stunner?

Click for full story. The Bucks had an interesting summer of destruction, much like the Sixers. Their best player, Brandon Jennings, was sent packing and they picked up table scraps to fill out their roster. Their early-season tanking returns have been much better than the Sixers, though. They'll bring their 2-8 record into the WFC tonight for a showdown.

Click for full story. The first-place, 5-7 Philadelphia 76ers will try defend their honor, their perch atop the Atlantic Division and their home floor tonight when the mighty Raptors bring their 4-7 mark to the WFC. The irony of ironies when looking at the Atlantic Division standings is the three tanking teams are at the top, while the Nets and Knicks (contenders if you ask their fans) are bringing up the rear.

Click for full story. The little "d" in dallas is intentional. Looking at their roster, it amazes me they aren't ranked worse than 21st in DFR. Jose Calderon, Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis are three of the worst defenders at their positions. Those three play a combined 101 minutes/game, the team's DFR must be a testament to the efforts of Marion and Dalembert on that end of the floor.

Click for full story. The Pelicans and Sixers will have their fates intertwined for years to come as we watch Nerlens Noel and Jrue Holiday play out their careers, but this season carries special weight. Every Pelicans loss is an extra chance at a ping pong ball, but too many losses could mean delayed gratification on the second half of the Jrue Holiday trade. The pro-tanking contingent will be kissing their sisters no matter what happens, everyone else...go Sixers!

Click for full story. 5-4 with wins over the Heat, Bulls and Rockets. This team of leftovers, rejects and wannabes has now topped LeBron James, Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard and Kyrie Irving, to name a few. Tonight, they'll take a team also lacking a superstar, and a journeyman shooter is the guy who scares me the most.

Click for full story. The Sixers had no chance against the Spurs. Zero. San Antonio is a well-oiled machine, completely disciplined up and down the roster. If the Sixers played them 100 times, they'd lose 99, or more. Houston is a different animal. An unformed juggernaut with more than one Achilles heel. Can the Sixers take advantage? Probably not.
