And now it sounds like he won’t be allowed back anytime soon. Midway through the fourth quarter, Carmelo Anthony appeared to walk towards the scorer’s table but he wasn’t going to pay his respects to Kate Scott or Ian Eagle. It turns out he was confronting a fan who’d been harassing him. ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reported Friday evening: “A 76ers...

How the Sixers are unlocking Matisse Thybulle offensively

How the Sixers are unlocking Matisse Thybulle offensively

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Thybulle’s been utilized offensively in an entirely new way this season. Matisse Thybulle has developed into one of the best perimeter defenders in the entire NBA. It isn’t too common that you see players being named to an All-Defensive team in their second year — something that Thybulle accomplished last season. Unfortunately, Thybulle’s offense (or lack there of) has kept him from logging major minutes on a reliable basis for his first two years. This season we’ve seen a lot more of Thybulle, who is logging a career-high in...

Photo by Juan Ocampo/NBAE via The HOF center didn’t hold back. The Ben Simmons situation began last summer and is still ongoing with the NBA trade deadline less than two weeks away. With Simmons declining to suit up in a Sixers uniform this season, Philadelphia fans have grown increasingly frustrated with and disappointed in the former first overall pick (to put it mildly). However, those feelings apparently even extend to individuals beyond the greater Delaware Valley who don’t have an emotional investment in the team. During last night’s TNT studio show,...

Joel Embiid has pulled to the front in MVP race

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The star center is in the midst of a career-best heater with no signs of slowing down. When Joel Embiid finished as the MVP runner-up last season, it was fair to wonder if we had witnessed the best season of his career, making the Philadelphia 76ers’ ignominious exit from the 2021 NBA playoffs all the more tough to swallow. And yet, not only has Embiid put together a comparable season in 2021-22, he has been even better in nearly every area of his game. Embiid’s mid-range shooting has regressed from last year’s historically great mark, but...
