Understanding The Sixers’ Blueprint For Failure

Drew Corrigan — Most fans of the Philadelphia 76ers understand the plan. To understand the plan, one must first understand where this basketball emporium comes from. This franchise hasn’t been relevant since Allen Iverson carried a decrepit 2001 76ers team to the NBA Finals, just to be ousted by the Los Angeles Lakers with Kobe and Shaq in their prime.

The Sixers, Tanking, and the Road to Ruin

Andy T — I’m going to postulate some bold stuff right now, so strap on your goddamn seatbelts. What anti-Tankers have against Tank Commanders isn’t critiques or unwrriten law argy-bargies, but resentments.

The Beautiful Struggle: A 2013-14 Sixers Story

by Kyle Neubeck – April 16 marks the final day of the basketball calendar for the Philadelphia 76ers, a notable moment for perhaps the most significant sub-20 win team in league history. It is the day that signifies the end of scrutiny from outside sources and enraged defense from supporters of Sam Hinkie’s vision. Considering that the franchise’s goal was to lose games in order […]

The Tribulations and Forthcoming Ascension of Nerlens Noel’s NBA Debut

Joshua Santos – The University of Kentucky has always had a rich history of great big men turned professional NBA players. From Jamaal Maglorie – a sophomore at the time, who led the Tubby Smith coached team to the 1998 NCAA championship – to 6’11″ Rick Robey – who started for the 1978 championship team, also winning a championship […]
