  • Sixers' Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons lag behind in NBA Rookie Survey

    Nineteen wins. Eighteen wins. Ten wins. As the 47-199 record mounted over his first three seasons as head coach, the same question arose loss after loss: How does Brett Brown keep the Sixers together? Those who played for Brown during this time could have given generic answers. They simply could have been happy for the chance to play in the NBA and commented on his optimistic demeanor. When Henry Sims told the story about Brown dancing, though, it was clear there was more to their experiences with the coach than just going through the motions of losing basketball. Other players were quick to offer their enthusiastic responses, whether they had been on the Sixers for multiple years or 10-day contracts.

  • 76ers take 1 big step

    NBCSports.com’s Dan Feldman is grading every team’s offseason based on where the team stands now relative to its position entering the offseason. The 76ers made their own luck. Philadelphia finished with the league’s fourth-worst record, fell to No. 5 in the lottery, swapped picks with the Kings to move up to No. 3 thanks to a two-year-old trade then traded up to No. 1 by enticing the Celtics with a future draft pick (another pick acquired in that heist of Sacramento, a Lakers pick or one of the 76ers’ own).

  • Lincoln Financial Field's chicken sandwich voted 'Craziest Stadium Food'

    Every Philly team has something unique and special about attending one of their games. And all fans have their own opinions so ranking them objectively is sure to prove challenging with results that will be disagreed with by many. But J.D. Power attempted to rank the "fan experience" of Philadelphia's major sports teams using a set of objective criteria (see full study here). Here's how they described the process: Fan satisfaction is evaluated across seven factors (in order of importance): seating area and game experience; security and ushers; leaving the game; arriving at the game; food and beverage; ticket purchase; and souvenirs and merchandise. Satisfaction is measured on a 1,000-point scale.

  • Sixers Mailbag: Joel Embiid back-to-backs and toughest opponents

    The release of the NBA schedule is a highly-anticipated announcement every summer. Now we know what the next 82 matchups will look like for the Sixers, and there is so much to discuss regarding their opponents, road vs. home contests and frequency of games. One of the most popular questions I received was about individual tickets for home games. Those will go on sale in September. Ticket information for the Jan. 18 game in London is available here. Thanks to those who submitted questions with #CSNSixersMailbag. When the schedule was released, I first looked to see the home opener. Then I counted the number of back-to-backs. The number of consecutive games is significant for the Sixers because

  • The Best Way to Play Chesapeake Energy Corporation

    Thanks to higher oil and gas prices, Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) made money in Q2 2017, its second consecutive quarter in the black, putting an artificial floor under CHK stock. When I last wrote about Chesapeake back in April, I said CHK stock was still a huge risk at $6. While its earnings situation is looking far better — Chesapeake Energy generated three times as much revenue in the second quarter year-over-year from less production — it still has a tremendous amount of debt.

  • The Sixers Are Finally Seen as a Team of Consequence

    It’s telling that the Philadelphia 76ers—whose 28 wins last season represented a four-year high—pop up so frequently on the NBA’s calendar of marquee games for next seasons. On opening week, the Sixers will take to ESPN to play the Washington Wizards, a gauge of Philly’s playoff hopes. Come Christmas Day, Joel Embiid will go toe to toe with Kristaps Porzingis as the Sixers help launch one of the biggest events on the NBA schedule.

    (Slam Magazine/Twitter) Markelle Fultz's diverse offensive skill set is part of what made him the consensus No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft. That arsenal apparently includes an uncanny ability to hit one-handed, no-look shots from incredible

  • The Andrew Bynum Trade: The Big Bang of The Process turns 5

    The consequences were drastic, and in none of the ways we wanted: Bynum got injured and stayed injured, never playing a healthy game in Philadelphia, while Iguodala thrived in Denver and then Golden State, Vucevic stuffed stat sheets in Orlando, and Sixers coach Doug Collins gradually lost his mind as Bynum festered on (and/or nowhere near) the Sixers' bench.
