Click for full story. The last time the Sixers "lucked" into a dominant big man, things didn't work out quite as expected. Elton Brand played hard for the Sixers and was a consummate professional, but his time in Philly will never be considered a success. Tonight, he brings his talents back to Broad Street so Josh Harris and Co. can pay him roughly $16M to play against the Sixers with the Mavs.

Click for full story. The last time a playoff team experienced the type of turnover the Sixers have this summer was in 2010 when Miami gutted their roster to make room for Chris Bosh and LeBron James. Obviously, no one in Miami thought twice before making those moves. It's hardly a risk to jettison guys like Michael Beasley to make room for the best player on the planet and an All Star power forward to join forces with Dwyane Wade. The Sixers, however, had to give up value to get value. The first part of this series will examine exactly what they gave up.

Click for full story. Philadelphia's poor performance in the opener of their first-round series against the Bulls stopped being the story with 1:10 left in the game when Derrick Rose tore his ACL on a crazy jump-stop in the lane. Rose's absence is certainly an advantage for the Sixers in the remaining games of the series, but he didn't beat them today. The Sixers have a lot of work to do, schematically, on the defensive end prior to game two. (game capsule)

Click for full story. So that's what it would've looked like if the Sixers got Elton Brand in his prime. This game had all the makings of another disappointing loss. Slow start. Low energy. Terrible offense. Klutzy, soft, ineffective play from the five spot. The difference came in the fourth quarter when the Sixers remembered they had Elton Brand with a mismatch on the low blocks, and rode him for all he was worth right to the final buzzer of a close win over a winning team. (game capsule).

Click for full story. For the second consecutive game, a stout Western Conference opponent found a way to exploit the hidden underbelly of the Sixers defense. The Spurs didn't expose the Sixer bigs on the glass, instead they put their cement feet on display for all to see by running pick-and-roll after pick-and-roll. Jrue didn't even resemble the PG who's been shutting down opponents with regularity as he tried to go under, over and around a series of picks from big men on nearly every possession and failed more often than not while his bigs proved to be more of hindrance than a help. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Well, not really. The Sixers put the screws to the Orlando Magic on the defensive end for about 45 minutes tonight. It was only after Stan Van Gundy threw in the towel that the Sixers took their foot off the gas and allowed the Magic to backdoor their way into a five-point defeat. (game capsule).

Click for full story. After seeing the Sixers dismantle the Wizards for the third time in just under two weeks, I find myself wishing I had watched their win over the Thunder, because for the life of me, I can't figure out how anyone lost to that team. The Sixers came into the game without the services of Spencer Hawes and Nikola Vucevic. They came out of the game grabbing over 80% of available defensive rebounds and limiting Javale McGee to 2 points and 2 rebounds in 21 minutes of work. (game capsule)

Click for full story. The defense was there all night. In the first half, the Hawks shot a completely unsustainable percentage on long twos. In the second half, they missed their jumpers, if they could even get a shot off, and the Sixers energy was too much for the Hawks (or anyone else) to handle. Big win to take over the #2 spot in the Eastern Conference. (game capsule)

Click for full story. One game in three days. Quite a luxury this season, so let's use this opportunity to take a step back and look at something that was somewhat of a concern in the preseason, the rotation at the 4 and 5. Also, here's the link to my latest on SB Nation Philly.

Click for full story. With a 10-point win over the Pacers the previous night, and a tilt with the Knicks on deck for tomorrow, the Sixers needed to put the Sacramento Kings to sleep early tonight and grab some rest. They did just that with a 27-point trouncing that wasn't even nearly that close. (game capsule).

Click for full story. 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.

Click for full story. Being young and deep should give the Sixers a big advantage over most teams during the upcoming insane 66-game schedule. With little turnover, a system in place and fresh legs, they should be able to weather stretches like the 21 games they'll play in the first 36 days of the season better than most, but there's a big problem lurking, and it's one the team did nothing to prepare for. Also, the first SixersBeat of the season, tonight at 9:30pm, Eastern

Click for full story. 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)

Click for full story. If the lockout ends, and if there's a pure amnesty clause in there, and if the Sixers new owners are willing to shell out some extra money and if this all happens before the entire 2011-2012 season is wiped off the books, I've got an idea.
