Liberty Ballers All-Star Break Roundtable

Liberty Ballers All-Star Break Roundtable

The Liberty Ballers crew sits down to discuss Ben Simmons’ ROY odds, Joel Embiid’s shot at an All-NBA team and Markelle Fultz’s chances at coming back this season. With two-thirds of the season in the books, we figured now was as good a time as any to look back at the first 55 games of the Philadelphia 76ers’ 2017-18 campaign. We’ve seen Joel Embiid play at an All-Star level (and show out in the All-Star Game itself), we’ve seen Jerryd Bayless play at... less than an All-Star level, and we’ve barely seen No. 1 draft pick Markelle Fultz play at all. The Sixers won 16 of their...

All-Star Weekend Roundup

All-Star Weekend Roundup

Things of note regarding the Sixers from the All-Star Weekend festivities Rising Stars Challenge Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric competed as members of Team World in the 2018 Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night. Similar to the All-Star game, the Rising Stars Challenge shouldn’t be taken too seriously. With that said, the Sixers promising young talent was evident. Simmons tallied a stat line of 11 pts, 6 reb, 13 ast, 4 stl. Saric dropped 18 pts and tacked on 5 ast. Embiid only played 9 minutes to score 5 points, but he also did this: L'Unico acuto di @JoelEmbiid stanotte, uno...

Liberty Ballers 2018 NBA All-Star Game Reaction Thread

Joel Embiid makes his All-Star debut tonight as Team Stephen squares off against Team LeBron in the 2018 All-Star Game. Let's just be honest... Let's just be real.... All-Star Weekend 2018 has been bit underwhelming so far. Friday's Rising Stars game had its moments, but last night's slate of events generated little buzz in the NBA world at-large. Hopefully, that all changes tonight. Joel Embiid (who may or may not still have the tags on his shorts) will suit up for Team Stephen and square off against Team LeBron in the highly-anticipated 2018 NBA All-Star Game. Embiid's appearance will...

Liberty Ballers All-Star Saturday Night Reaction Thread

Fresh off his brief run in the Rising Stars game, Joel Embiid has his sights set on the Skills Challenge. Night One of All-Star Weekend is in the books, and if you tuned in last night... we REALLY hope you skipped that dreadful Celebrity Game. Conversely, the Rising Stars game was pretty darn entertaining. While it quickly devolved into a defense-optional dunkfest (and a 155-124 Team World victory), we saw some amazing performances from Sixers’ representatives Ben Simmons (11 points, 13 assists, 6 rebounds, 4 steals) and Dario Saric (18 points, including 4-for-7 shooting from deep). Joel...

Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric are all set to start for the World Team in the flagship event of All-Star Friday Night For the next three days, the City of Angels is the epicenter of the NBA universe as All-Star Weekend 2018 kicks off tonight in Los Angeles. First up on today’s agenda is the All-Star Celebrity Game (presented by Ruffles!) filled with actors, former players, current WNBA stars, and some folks that I’ve never heard of in my life. (For the record, Win Butler of Arcade Fire tries WAY too hard in these things - he’s like the new Arne Duncan.) The clear highlight...

Sixers Extinguish 24 Point Deficit, Defeat the Heat Without Joel Embiid

Sixers Extinguish 24 Point Deficit, Defeat the Heat Without Joel Embiid

Sixers pull a 180 and storm back in very Un-Sixer like fashion Wow, where do we begin? The Philadelphia 76ers found out about a half hour before the game that they would be without All-Star Center Joel Embiid. That seemed to demoralize the Sixers squad as they came out in the first half looking extremely flat and completely disoriented on both ends of the court. Three technical fouls were dished out to the Sixers over the course of the game, as TJ McConnell, JJ Redick, and Dario Saric were all flagged with techs. Going in to halftime, it seemed like there was no shot that the Sixers could...

True Grit: 76ers Beat the Knicks 108-92

True Grit: 76ers Beat the Knicks 108-92

...you lose like the rest. Last night’s game became a movie in its final minutes. While the 76ers were firmly ahead of the Knicks, drama unfolded in another way as a triple-double alert was raised. Yet, it wasn’t Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid or Dario Saric, the three young stars, that were the subject to that alert. They were on the sideline cheering on with anticipation. No, it was the embodiment of grit that was on the verge of the accomplishment. When he finally went up and caught the final rebound for the feat, the bench and crowd erupted. Water and chocolate milk (!) baths were going...

76ers-Knicks Post-Game Thread!

When you mess with the best... Not all games are going to go as expected and none of them are ever easy, even if one team has more talent than the other. Coming into tonight, the 76ers were trying to strengthen their hold on their playoff spot and for a while, the Knicks made it a bout. It was a sloppy affair, full of some careless turnovers and lazy defense, the two biggest reasons for the 76ers struggles this year. On top of that was Joel Embiid having a pretty “average” night by his standards (which was still 17 points and 6 boards). Yet after allowing the Knicks to stick around...

Sixers defeat the Clippers 112-98, take the season series

Sixers defeat the Clippers 112-98, take the season series

The Sixers pulled out a win, but not before we all had a Joel Embiid induced heart attack. The Sixers beat the LA Clippers 112—98 tonight, extending their win streak to 7 games at home. The Sixers played well all game, leading by 16 at one point. However, the game never felt out of reach for the Clippers. This was made more evident after Joel Embiid went out in the 4th with an apparent knee injury and the Clippers were able to pull within two points with 6:05 left to play in the game. Luckily, the Sixers were able to hold on and pull out the win. What was almost the top story of the game...
