Sixers to unveil Allen Iverson sculpture on ‘76ers Legend Walk’ in April

Sixers to unveil Allen Iverson sculpture on ‘76ers Legend Walk’ in April

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Answer is getting his own sculpture at the Sixers’ training complex. By just about any metric, Allen Iverson was one of the greatest players ever to don a Philadelphia 76ers uniform. The 11-time All-Star and four-time NBA scoring champion helped lead one of the greatest playoff runs in franchise history in 2000-01, the same year in which he was named the league’s Most Valuable Player. On Friday, the Sixers announced that Iverson will soon be joining Wilt Chamberlain, Charles Barkley, Julius Erving and other franchise icons...

Sixers finally get a break from top contending teams, face Hornets Friday

Photo by Jacob Kupferman/ The Philadelphia 76ers have an opportunity to get back in the win column when the 15-44 Charlotte Hornets come to town on Friday evening. The Philadelphia 76ers return to South Philadelphia for a quick single-game homestand on Friday night. At least they finally get a break from top contending teams, hosting the 15-44 Charlotte Hornets. De’Anthony Melton has landed on the Sixers’ injury report once again. Melton is out for Friday’s contest as he continues to struggle with a back injury that sidelined him for over a month from January...

Ricky Council IV has earned a role with the Sixers this year and beyond

Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Ricky Council IV’s performance in Boston is further proof that he belongs in the NBA and should be a part of the Sixers’ future. The Sixers tried like hell to get a pick in the 2023 NBA Draft. Alas, with uncertainty surrounding the CBA, teams hoarded their picks and Daryl Morey couldn’t even buy a second-rounder. So, the team had to quickly turn to undrafted free agents. Initially, the Sixers added three players, including NC State’s Terquavion Smith and Arizona’s Ąžuolas Tubelis. While Smith has lit up the G League in...

Sixers pushing forward with uncertainty surrounding Joel Embiid’s status

Sixers pushing forward with uncertainty surrounding Joel Embiid’s status

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via Joel Embiid’s status for the rest of the season is up in the air, but the Sixers have to find a way to win games without the reigning MVP. The trajectory of the Philadelphia 76ers has changed dramatically with the injury to the reigning MVP, and rightfully so. Losing Joel Embiid for a few games, weeks or a series is something that has the potential to happen. His impact is so great, that you hope the team can weather the storm in his absence. The trade deadline ushered in some new faces, which addressed shooting, especially from...

Joel Embiid on if he’ll return this season: ‘That’s the plan’

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Joel Embiid on Thursday spoke to reporters for the first time since undergoing a procedure to repair an injured meniscus in his left knee. CAMDEN, N.J. — Joel Embiid was in his practice sweats, holding a basketball while on the floor at the Sixers’ practice facility in Camden, New Jersey, Thursday. It looked like he was ready to go. Alas, the reigning MVP still has a long way to go in his rehab after undergoing a procedure on Feb. 6 to repair an injured meniscus in his left knee. Embiid hasn’t played since Golden State’s Jonathan Kuminga...

Tobias Harris is not worried, but frustrated

Tobias Harris is not worried, but frustrated

Photo by Adam Glanzman/ At least someone isn’t worried. The Philadelphia 76ers have played another basketball game, a 117-99 loss in Boston, which means it’s time again to discuss what is going on with Tobias Harris. Undoubtedly, the veteran forward has been a divisive figure since he arrived from Los Angeles via trade in February 2019. Aside from the contract, there have been plenty of periods of below average play from Harris, but he would always eventually bounce back to playing pretty good, occasionally very good, basketball. You would then return to sighing...

Liberty Ballers Reacts: When will Joel Embiid make his return for the Sixers?

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Sixers are optimistic and hopeful that Joel Embiid will return in time for the stretch run. But when exactly might that be? Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Throughout the year we ask questions of the most plugged-in Philadelphia 76ers fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to participate in the weekly emailed surveys. The Sixers have really missed Joel Embiid’s presence, to put things mildly. The team is 26-8 when he’s in the lineup, and just 7-17 without him. To put that in...

Why Tobias Harris’ recent slump is his most bizarre

Why Tobias Harris’ recent slump is his most bizarre

Photo by Alex Goodlett/ Typically, Tobias Harris has played well when Joel Embiid has missed time, which makes his recent slump so perplexing. The Sixers are coming up on a full month without Joel Embiid in the lineup and boy has it not gone well. The team is 4-8 since Embiid’s knee was injured (re-injured???) in Golden State on Jan. 30. This free-fall has taken a team that was competing for the two seed into danger of falling into the play-in tournament. They’re only a game-and-a-half up on the seven seed. Struggles are to be expected when the reigning Most...

Sixers look to pull off the upset in Boston

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Philadelphia has two main things standing in their way Tuesday night: their own play of late, and the best team in the league. Tonight marks the fourth meeting between these long-time division rivals, with the Boston Celtics taking the last two contests after the Philadelphia 76ers squeaked by with a three-point win all the way back in early November. When we last saw these teams meet at the beginning of December, Patrick Beverley tied to a career-high with 26 points to almost lead the Hospital Sixers to an upset. Pat Bev is podcasting from...
