A deep dive into the Sixers’ odd couple

A deep dive into the Sixers’ odd couple

Joel Embiid and J.J. Redick didn’t find each other on Tinder, but the harmony in their games might suggest otherwise. On the surface, Joel Embiid and J.J. Redick couldn’t be more different. Embiid is a 7-foot-2 marvel from Cameroon. Redick is an unassuming 6-foot-4 guard from Roanoke, Virginia. Embiid was a one-and-done Kansas Jayhawk who picked up basketball less than a decade ago. Redick was a decorated four-year star at Duke, drafted when Embiid was still pursuing a professional volleyball career. Embiid, the No. 3 pick in 2014, entranced franchises with his blend of size,...

Deandre Ayton clowns Joel Embiid with new Panini America basketball card

Deandre Ayton clowns Joel Embiid with new Panini America basketball card

The summer beef between Phoenix Suns future Hall of Famer Deandre Ayton and Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid now has pictures to go with the words. Ayton designed a “sketch card” for Panini America, and drew himself dunking over a player wearing a #21 jersey with the letters “PHI” across the front. I know, I thought the same thing. Why would the Suns rookie go out of his way to fire a shot at World B. Free before he’s even played in an NBA game? That’s a peculiar move. But no, it appears Embiid is the target of Ayton’s artistic expression. So . . . who is @Suns rook...

Following the Zhaire Smith injury, the Philadelphia 76ers might get crafty with their lineup combinations early in the season. It’s difficult to get a read on just how good the Philadelphia 76ers will be next season.

Sixers’ defense could be even better in 2018-19

Given the hopes of fans and the team alike before 2018 free agency began, the Philadelphia 76ers’ summer has been an underwhelming one. LeBron James and Paul George signed elsewhere. Kawhi Leonard was snapped up by top Eastern Conference competitors, the Toronto Raptors. The Sixers can still improve through star development rather than star hunting, though. And while a lot of that progression rests on whatever improvements we see from Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and a Drew Hanlen-trained version of Markelle Fultz, one area we know the Sixers can excel is defense. Last season, the Sixers’...
