Sixers’ rotation is uneven with Ben Simmons sitting out

Sixers’ rotation is uneven with Ben Simmons sitting out

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ The Sixers need to swing a trade. The Ben Simmons-less Sixers got their season started with a bang in a 20-point win down in New Orleans. Joel Embiid played well and was able to rest the majority of the fourth quarter. The team’s Night Shift bench crew balled out. Tyrese Maxey stepped into a legitimate starting role and casually dropped a 20-7-5 stat line. The Sixers’ rotation still has a hole sucking up $33 million. I’ve made it abundantly clear that the Sixers need to trade away Simmons. Removing that toxicity from the franchise and...

Sixers Bell Ringer: Furkan Korkmaz’s fourth-quarter flurry fuels Philly to blowout victory

Sixers Bell Ringer: Furkan Korkmaz’s fourth-quarter flurry fuels Philly to blowout victory

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports My, oh my, what a performance that was from the sweet-shooting wing. A pair of second-half runs, one at 22-4 and another at 22-8, fueled the Philadelphia 76ers to a 117-97 rout of the New Orleans Pelicans as both teams kicked off the 2021-22 regular season Wednesday evening. After entering the break knotted at 53, the Sixers outscored the Pelicans 64-44 in the final 24 minutes. They were primarily led by Furkan Korkmaz’s fourth-quarter flurry, but guys like Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey chipped in as well down the stretch. It’s time...

The preseason is over, but let’s face it, the news and conversations never stop on this website. The Philadelphia 76ers continued their preseason with a win over the Brooklyn Nets.

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via On today’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Emily and Dan react to the news of the day: Ben Simmons is back in Philadelphia. Is this anything more than Daryl Morey successfully calling Ben & Klutch’s bluff? Will he be ‘injured’? Will he actually return to play for the Sixers? They round up the surrounding reports on the topic and try to absorb what this means for their beloved Sixers. On a more lighthearted note, the preseason Sixers have been lots of fun.

Sixers: Andre Drummond suffers the most if Ben Simmons returns

After a somewhat dramatic holdout, it appears that there’s a strong possibility that Ben Simmons could return to the Sixers. If he does indeed reunite with the Philadelphia 76ers, there’s one player in particular who would suffer the most from the All-Star’s return. It’s not superstar Joel Embiid or second year point guard Tyrese Maxey.

Is there a point guard competition? Depends who you ask or how you look at it

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via There may or may not be a competition for the starting point guard spot — and it may or may not matter. Tyrese Maxey got the start at point guard in the first preseason game on Monday. It was Shake Milton’s turn to run the team against Toronto on Thursday. With Ben Simmons continuing to hold out, is there a competition to take his spot with the first unit? Well, that depends on who you ask. “Just looking at different guys,” Doc Rivers said postgame when asked about Milton starting. “I liked him. I thought he played well....

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ The Sixers have high expectations for Maxey going into his second NBA season. Although the Sixers season ended with a devastating loss, one bright spot did emerge from the postseason. Guard Tyrese Maxey showcased his potential throughout the regular season. After a slow start to his pro career, the 6-2, 200-pound Texas native averaged 8 points and 2 assists while shooting 30.1 percent from beyond the arc during his rookie year. Head coach Doc Rivers began trusting Maxey more and more as the season wore on. With the Sixers holding the No. 1 seed...
