Justin Anderson Has Shin Splints

Justin Anderson Has Shin Splints

According to a medical release from the Sixers, Justin Anderson is suffering from “tibial stress syndrome,” better known as shin splints. He’ll be reevaluated in the ever-popular time span of three weeks. I am not knocking on JA here and I hope it doesn’t come off that way, but man I’m gonna miss his bench celebrations if he can’t hop up on both legs. He’s the heart of that squad, and in the meantime, someone may have to step up (I’m looking at you, Stauskas).

Robert Covington’s Restructure and Extension is Official

Robert Covington’s Restructure and Extension is Official

RoCo just got paid, it’s Friday night(ish) In the team’s release on the move, Bryan Colangelo said: Robert Covington is a prime example of what hard work, dedication and commitment can lead to. Rob’s growth as a player on both ends of the floor makes him one of the most versatile and effective wings in the league, while his contributions of character and professionalism feature prominently in our evolving organizational culture. This extension is both well-deserved, and a really great story. That last part hits the nail on the head. RoCo is one of the best stories in the NBA right...

An Encyclopedia of Joel Embiid’s Post Moves

An Encyclopedia of Joel Embiid’s Post Moves

Encyclopedia Embiidica Joel Embiid is fresh off of the best game of his career. On his way to 46 points (on 20 shots), JoJo pulled a plethora is moves out of his post-up arsenal. While he has a solid mid-range game and can hit the three, Embiid is feasting in the post this season. He leads the league in points off of post-ups, and is just bullying everyone who gets in his way. That includes Andrew Bogut, Julius Randle, Willie Cauley-Stein, DeAndre Jordan, and that other guy. So when Embiid reaches into his bag of tricks in the paint, low, and high-post, he’s pulling out new, old, and...

The Euro Stash: Jonah Bolden Impresses, Mathis Lessort is Still Dunking

The Euro Stash: Jonah Bolden Impresses, Mathis Lessort is Still Dunking

A quick note from Jim before we start: Please welcome Kevin Rice to LB as the de facto “Euro Guy” moving forward. He’s spending a lot of time watching EuroLeague basketball in his dorm. He’s one of us. Take it away Kev. Jonah Bolden All I can say about Jonah Bolden is wow. Just wow. In Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv’s upset victory over the LuKa Doncic-led Real Madrid team, Bolden was electric…when he played. Some questionable calls left Bolden is dire foul trouble early in the game. He played a total of 10 minutes, and he got no run after the 8:02 mark in the 3rd quarter, but Bolden was...

Sixers 115, Lakers 109: Joel Embiid is King of LA

Sixers 115, Lakers 109: Joel Embiid is King of LA

Joel Embiid scored 46, Ben Simmons flirted with a triple-double, T.J. McConnell low-fived Kevin Hart... last night was just your typical 115-109 victory for the Philadelphia 76ers. DEAR GOD. JOEL HANS EMBIID IS A BONA FIDE SUPERSTAR. THE STATS: Joel Embiid scored 46 points on 19 shots, had 15 rebounds, 7 assists, 7 blocked shots, only 2 turnovers, and was a +19 on the night. I mean. He took 19 shots! Nineteen!! Since the NBA started tracking blocked shots, Embiid is the only player ever to put up a line like that. With 7 minutes left, when he had “only” scored 36 points, the only two...

Sixers-Lakers: Preview and Game Thread

Ben vs. Lonzo, Pt. 1 Happy Covington Contract Day! Believe it or not, Robert Covington gettin’ dat money is not the only Sixers-related event of the day. In fact, the Sixers also happen to be playing a road basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers, the best player in the world, Kyle Kuzma, and his savant sidekick, Lonzo Ball. This will also be the first matchup between Ben Simmons and Brandon Ingram since they were drafted first and second overall in the 2016 draft. The Lakers have had a surprisingly strong start to the season, coming out of the gates at 6-8 despite their starting...

Sixers and Robert Covington Finalizing 4-Year, $62 Million Extension

RoCo just got his well-deserved payday. Making officially official what seemed to be unofficially official for a while, Adrian Wojnarowski has reported (and Shams seconded, saying Cov will sign Friday) that the Sixers and Robert Covington have agreed to a 4-year, $62 million renegotiation and extension. Up until this season, Covington’s total earnings were $3,165,696, and before restructuring this year of his deal, Cov was making $1,577,230 for this season. Covington has spent the last few years cementing himself as one of the most important pieces of a young Sixers core, and this year...

A Brief History of Simmons/Embiid vs. Lavar and Lonzo Ball

A Brief History of Simmons/Embiid vs. Lavar and Lonzo Ball

A brief/beef history before tonight’s matchup: Beef History: The Sixers vs. the Ball FamilySixers-Lakers is already a hilarious rivalry, and it's mostly Lavar Ball's fault. This is BEEF HISTORY.Posted by SB Nation on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 So to summarize: Ben Simmons’s sister doesn’t like Lonzo Ball. Joel Embiid likes Lonzo. Joel doesn’t like LaVar. Ben Simmons doesn’t think the Lakers are a playoff team. Joel and Olivia Simmons want Ben to dunk on Lonzo “so hard his daddy runs on the court to help him.” LaVar called Jerry Colangelo a helicopter parent, which...

Joel Embiid Will Come in Your House and Embarrass You in Front of Those You Love

Joel Embiid Will Come in Your House and Embarrass You in Front of Those You Love

If we didn’t have Joel Embiid to root for Philadelphia, we’d hate Joel Embiid in Philadelphia. He comes in to your home arena, smack talks your centers and power forwards, draws fouls like few in the league can, gets chippy with everyone, and then laughs in your face when you get mad at him. He’s the NBA’s perfect troll. If you get @JoelEmbiid mad, he's gonna clown you and everyone you know pic.twitter.com/ThWum4M3OR— SB Nation (@SBNation) November 14, 2017 It’s a perfect plan, though. If players who are supposed to guard Joel Embiid are mad at Joel Embiid, they’re going...

Sixers Care Not for Your Sleep and Squeak a Late Night Win Out Against the Clippers

Sixers Care Not for Your Sleep and Squeak a Late Night Win Out Against the Clippers

Robert Covington deserves all of the money. This is just a fun picture so I’m gonna put it here: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Sixers once again refused to care about your blood pressure, well-being, or sleep schedule. After jumping ahead to a 14 point lead early on, the Sixers went back and forth with the Clippers (going down by as many as 6) before pulling away at the last possible minute for a 109-105 win. Joel Embiid, facing questions about his physical and mental shape, pulled down a career-high 16 rebounds, played a career-high 36 minutes, and scored 32 points...

Christian Wood, The Return: 87ers Sign former Process Casualty

Christian Wood, The Return: 87ers Sign former Process Casualty

Can’t quit the Cross. Resurrected! The Delaware 87ers just announced that they have acquired Christian Wood, who last played for the Sevens in 2015-2016 (and last in the U.S. with the Mavericks and Suns in Summer League). In August he signed with the Fujian Sturgeons in China but was waived before making an appearance for them. Wood previously played 17 games for the Sixers in 2015-2016, and just last year Jake Pavorsky gave him a right-swipe on Sixers Tinder. The Process will never die.

Sixers Co-Owner Wrote a Letter in Support of #FreeMeekMill

Sixers Co-Owner Wrote a Letter in Support of #FreeMeekMill

Co-owner Michael Rubin vouched for Robert “Meek Mill” Williams and called for leniency. No, not that one. Or that one. Yeah, the other one. Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin - who also co-owns the New Jersey Devils and serves as the executive chairman of Fanatics - wrote a letter in support of Meek Mill to Judge Genece E. Brinkley recently, before Meek was sentenced to two-to-four years for probation violations. According to Sports Illustrated’s The Crossover, Rubin “developed a close relationship with Meek Mill over the years, and...lauded Meek Mill for his personal growth and...

Sixers Mailbag: Are Simmons and Embiid All-Stars?

Sixers Mailbag: Are Simmons and Embiid All-Stars?

Plus: Who is in the Sixers’ Real World house? We’re just about 15% of the way through the season, and the Sixers are a .500 team. Some losses were bad, but if you told me in the pre-season that the Sixers would be 6-6 after 12, I’d take it 100 times out of 100. Today essentially feels like an off day, with the week’s first edition of Sixers after dark tipping off against the Clippers at 10:30pm, so I figured we’d get into a quick, light, early season mailbag. Here we go: What are the odds of a Simmons all-star nod? Higher or lower than Embiid? Would he be considered frontcourt...

Video Profile Tells T.J. McConnell’s Pro Path in his Own Words

Video Profile Tells T.J. McConnell’s Pro Path in his Own Words

Timothy John talks to go90 Zone and shows off some high school highlights. It’s often said that Philadelphia loves a “blue-collar” athlete. It’s one of many reasons the entire greater Philadelphia area was (and still is) obsessed with Chase Utley. “Hard-nosed,” “gritty,” etc. You can make the same comments about everyone’s favorite #GritGod T.J. McConnell. What he lacks in talent and natural athleticism he makes up for in effort, heart, and obviously, grit. He’s gone from a nobody who wasn’t even recognized at Xfinity Live!* to your favorite Process truster’s...
