  • Clippers owner Steve Ballmer: ‘I think we got higher expectations on us than the long, hard five, six years of absolute crap like the 76ers put in’

    The Clippers will probably miss the playoffs in a loaded Western Conference. Ballmer also vowed that the Clippers won’t tank to get a better draft pick. The 76ers missed the playoffs five straight seasons, but they emerged from that self-inflicted drought with two franchise cornerstones – Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons – and multiple other helpful pieces.

  • 'Some expect' Ben Simmons to start shooting righty, but the 76ers star isn't one of them

    In an age when NBA players are posting workout videos to Instagram and their trainers have become must-follows on Twitter, we wonder why we haven’t seen Rookie of the Year Ben Simmons tirelessly working on the jump shot that proved a major flaw in his game during the Eastern Conference finals. Maybe Simmons is finally considering a switch from his wayward southpaw jumper to a potentially more accurate right-handed shot. In his latest newsletter, New York Times scribe Marc Stein went in depth on the league’s best left-handers, and within was this nugget: “some expect” Simmons to go “all righty this season.” Now, “some” is awfully vague.

  • Should Ben Simmons shoot right handed? He doesn't seem to think so

    For those sharing the conspiracy theory that Ben Simmons should be shooting with his right hand, prepare to be disappointed. The Rookie of the Year appeared to shoot down the notion on Twitter, commenting on a story suggesting the Sixers' point guard is shooting with the wrong hand. This story stemmed from a piece by The New York Times basketball writer Marc Stein, but questions of the 22-year-old's handedness were first posted by Kevin O'Connor - formerly of SB Nation now with The Ringer.

  • Sixers remain quiet as contenders make their case for Eastern Conference supremacy

    In fact, he said the C's were going win next season regardless of whether James stayed in the Eastern Conference or not. "I hate how everybody is like, ‘Oh, LeBron's gone in the East,'" Brown said. New Milwaukee Bucks center Brook Lopez was a bit more diplomatic with his expectations for next season.

  • Which NBA Player Won Social Media This Summer?

    What I’m saying is, when you have to write about the NBA this time of year, your mind tends to go to weird places. There are way too many social media accounts in the NBA for this to be a thorough investigation. For now, let’s run through the most obvious candidates and decide who won social media this summer.

  • Sixers rookie Landry Shamet, Shake Milton receive good

    While Zhaire Smith continues an unfortunate trend of Sixers' rookies suffering injuries, two other 2018 draft picks are progressing. First-round pick Landry Shamet (sprained right ankle) and second-round pick Shake Milton (stress fracture in his back) are both asymptomatic, the team said Monday. Shamet, a guard out of Wichita State, got banged up in the first half of the Sixers' first summer league game against the Celtics.

  • Despite Jamal Crawford's praise, Sixers should be wary of signing veteran free agent

    Despite coming up empty in their goal of star hunting this summer, the Sixers are still currently one of the more desirable franchises in the NBA. Plus, the organization has a respected head coach in Brett Brown, state-of-the-art training complex, an intense fan base and much more to offer.

  • Sixers Zhaire Smith has foot surgery, no timetable for return

    Philadelphia rookie Zhaire Smith had surgery on the Jones fracture Thursday night, and there is no timetable for his return. A Jones fracture is to the bone that runs from the “little toe” up towards the ankle on the foot. Because Smith joins a long list of recent Philadelphia first-rounders who suffered a serious injury before their rookie years: Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz, and Landry Shamet.
