Click for full story. With the season a bit more than a week away, it's time to take a stab at a few predictions. Instead of going with basic stats, for now, instead I want to focus on minute distribution. The Sixers, like every other team in the league, have 96 minutes/game to fill at shooting guard and small forward. This year, 75% of the rotation at those positions will change, but who gets the bulk of the minutes?

Click for full story. With Andrew Bynum sitting idly by, the Sixers took the floor against the refurbished Boston Celtics (sans Garnett) last night for our first glimpse of the post-Iguodala era in Philadelphia. The game had a strange kind of feeling at times, at other times it felt eerily similar to the past couple of seasons. Most of the time, I was just letting the differences sink in. There are things to like, definitely, foremost among them is the road kill perched atop Spencer Hawes' dome. Seeing him wear that mullet in public is almost worth the pain of having to watch him play.

Click for full story. The past couple of days featured two games which carried very little meaning, and a cautiously worded bit of news concerning the Sixers savior's problematic knee. Let's add some meaning to the meaningless and dissect Bynum's procedures to kick off our week.

Click for full story. The idea for this post came from a well-worn and hotly-debated question in post-Iverson 76ers fandom:  is it possible to win a championship in the "Superstar Era" of the NBA without a superstar?  Full disclosure: my first recollection of the NBA goes back to the 76-77 season, so my first three years following the NBA saw three balanced teams without a true superstar ('77 Blazers, '78 Bullets, '79 Sonics) win championships, while the superstars of the day (Erving, Kareem, Maravich, David Thompson, Gervin) all went ring-less.  So I have seen it happen more than younger readers of Depressed Fan, who only have the '04 Pistons as a counterexample.  But the NBA became a different game in 1980, or so the argument goes, and the Superstar era has continued unabated since then.  So what follows is an analysis of all 33 championship teams from 1980-2012 (teams are referred to by the year in which they won the title, e.g., '83 Sixers).  To make this a Sixers-centric post, I then compare the '12 Sixers to the champions, so that we can get a sense of how that team stacked up against the NBA champions and how the '13 Sixers might be better or worse.

Click for full story. We've covered what the Sixers lost, and how their perimeter group was reshaped, now it's time to stop skirting the issue. When the Sixers snuck into the Dwight Howard sweepstakes and somehow convinced Orlando to take a package of bad draft picks and middling prospects instead of Andrew Bynum, they fundamentally changed who they are. From unorthodox to tried-and-true, the Sixers have changed their path. Now they just need to fit the pieces together and make it work.

Click for full story. While Andrew Bynum was, by far, the most meaningful addition of the summer, the Sixers went to great lengths to reshape their perimeter attack. Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams and Jodie Meeks are all gone, their replacements....shooters.

Click for full story. The preseason (3 days) and regular season (23 days) openers are bearing down on us in a pleasant, cautiously optimistic kind of way. With the summer officially dead, the time has come to shift into gear for meaningful basketball games (hopefully).

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. The first three years of Jrue Holiday's career have been equal parts tease, promise and growth. Unbiased observers could say he's been a disappointment, an overachiever or a burgeoning star without being totally off base. Year four, however, is when the ambiguity needs to end.

Click for full story. With a couple of new contracts for leftover players, the departure of most of last season's roster, and the new additions headlined by Andrew Bynum, it's time to take a look at the Sixers' salary cap situation for this season, and going forward.

Click for full story. According to more reports than you can shake a stick at, the Philadelphia 76ers will acquire Andrew Bynum (pictured above destroying the Sixers) in a four-team trade. Andre Iguodala, Moe Harkless and Nikola Vucevic are the players reportedly on the move, and Jason Richardson will join Bynum in Philadelphia.

Click for full story. Adrian Wojnarowski has the scoop on a potential trade in which the Sixers would help facilitate a deal to send Dwight Howard to the Lakers. It's a four-team trade (which makes is highly unlikely), but the Sixers part would be sending Iguodala to Denver and getting Bynum from the Lakers. Sign me up.

Click for full story. Back in June, with disconcerting rumors about the Sixers ownership/front office swirling, I chose to bide my time. Who's in charge, who's make decisions, those are typically secondary concerns. Possibly, they aren't concerns at all. Who makes a decision carries no meaning without the decisions themselves present to be evaluated. Well, now we have a handful of decisions, and possibly the outline of a plan...or a direction...or maybe two plans and two directions. Let's take stock.

Click for full story. As he has been known to do from time to time, 76ers Co-Owner and CEO Adam Aron took to his Twitter Feed on Sunday to answer questions about the 76ers. As I checked out his page in-depth that night, I found out a few interesting things: Philadelphia finally cares about basketball, and the current executives were responsible for the great success last season (well, even though being a mediocre team is hardly something to brag about, and last year's team was built before he came, but besides that he's spot on). Most importantly, I learned the Eagles are currently in Training Camp. Who knew? I NEED to get up to Lehigh at some point this week.

Click for full story. If my reading of the tea leaves is incorrect (and it probably is), and the more optimistic members of the fan base are correct, the Sixers have a plan. They're laying the groundwork for a slow rebuild, or a delayed rebuild. They're clearing their books for two years from now. I say if that's the plan, then do it right.
