Philadelphia 76ers: Raptors’ Finals appearance reinforces the need to run it back

The Philadelphia 76ers lost to the eventual Eastern Conference Finals on a fluky bounce. Run. It. Back. All credit to the Toronto Raptors, who deserve every bit of their 2019 NBA Finals appearance. Kawhi Leonard has been absolute bonkers, Kyle Lowry has stepped up in big moments and the fanbase has been passionately awaiting this moment […] Philadelphia 76ers: Raptors’ Finals appearance reinforces the need to run it back - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers 2019 NBA Draft profile: Tacko Fall

Tacko Fall would become the tallest player in the NBA, thoroughly outmeasuring the Philadelphia 76ers’ own Boban Marjanovic. For most of the season, fans and talent evaluators wrote off Tacko Fall as more spectacle than prospect. Listed at 7-foot-7, 289 pounds and wielding an 8-foot-2 wingspan, his measurements essentially broke the DraftExpress database. He was […] Philadelphia 76ers 2019 NBA Draft profile: Tacko Fall - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Run It Back, like the (old) Raptors

Run It Back, like the (old) Raptors

The Raptors ran it back and failed. Now they’re a win away from the NBA Finals. Their example should give the Sixers confidence in both their current core and future flexibility. Much of the argument for the Philadelphia 76ers running it back with the same group next season has been about the current roster. The team almost beat the Toronto Raptors, who are one game away from advancing to the NBA Finals. Add some bench upgrades in the offseason and hope the Golden State Warriors split up, and you’re looking at a title contender. But there’s an under-discussed part of the argument in...

Jonah Bolden: Rookie Year in Review

Jonah Bolden: Rookie Year in Review

Recapping Jonah Bolden’s rookie year and how he could be valuable for the Sixers moving forward A year ago today I was ambitiously excited to see if Jonah Bolden would be signed to a contract, and even more enthused to see if he would be able to crack the rotation and provide valuable minutes to a team that desperately needed help off the bench. Bolden did what I expected in his rookie year, which was a little bit of everything... he played defense, shot the 3 even better than I thought he would, showed flashes of his passing ability, and ran the floor (107 pace). While he still has much...

Philadelphia 76ers: Should Ben Simmons have made an All-Defense team?

Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons was left off the 2018-19 All-Defensive teams. Was he deserving? The 2018-19 first team All-Defense spots were awarded to Eric Bledsoe and Marcus Smart, Paul George, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Rudy Gobert. The second team featured Jrue Holliday, Klay Thompson (first-time selection), Kawhi Leonard, Draymond Green and Philadelphia 76ers superstar Joel Embiid.

Prospect Breakdown: Daniel Gafford

Could the Razorback be an option for the Sixers at no. 24? Everyone knows the Philadelphia 76ers must make some decisions this offseason. They’re going to #RunItBack with head coach Brett Brown, but the roster must be filled out. The Sixers have decisions to make with Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, but there’s another important item to work out: backup center. During the regular season, the on/off numbers for the Sixers when their All-NBA 2nd Team Defensive Center Joel Embiid weren’t great. During the playoffs, they were downright awful at times without Embiid on the floor. The...

Philadelphia 76ers 2019 NBA Draft profile: Brandon Clarke

A unique prospect in many respects, Brandon Clarke would be an ideal reserve big man on the Philadelphia 76ers.
