Philadelphia 76ers still have critical flaws

The Philadelphia 76ers are 22-12, clinging tightly to a half-game lead over Brooklyn for first place in the East. Joel Embiid is the MVP frontrunner, and Ben Simmons is playing the best basketball of his career. All that, and it’s tough to express confidence in the Sixers’ championship pursuit. Sure, the Sixers have been in […] Philadelphia 76ers still have critical flaws - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The biggest mistake the Philadelphia 76ers can make

Danny Ainge, Pat Riley, and Masai Ujiri have something in common that Elton Brand is trying to achieve. Those three successful general managers have made deals, built great relationships, and kept their fingers on the pulse of their teams in order to raise championship banners. Among those tasks, assessment of need is a major job […] The biggest mistake the Philadelphia 76ers can make - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers’ Player of the Week: Joel Embiid has career game

There was nobody who was consistently great this past week for the Philadelphia 76ers despite having a 3-1 record. That being said, Joel Embiid did a career night that really should help his MVP candidacy which is good enough to win him this player of the week.

Sixers MVP ladder: Does Joel Embiid still have top spot?

The 2021 NBA MVP race is starting to take shape. The frontrunners are clear — Joel Embiid and LeBron James top the NBA.com rankings, and many consider it at two-person race at the moment. That said, much can change between now and season’s end. The volume of viable candidates is, frankly, overwhelming. Embiid has by […] Sixers MVP ladder: Does Joel Embiid still have top spot? - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers: Nick Wright is wrong about Joel Embiid’s MVP case

Sixers center Joel Embiid has continued his incredible, dominant 2020-21 MVP campaign in spectacular fashion. A 50-point, 17-rebound, and five-assist game against the Bulls was followed by 25 points and 17 rebounds against the very pesky Toronto Raptors. All that stacked on to a season during which Embiid has dropped 30 points or more 13 times.

GRADES: Sixers handle Mavs at home

In this game, Luka Doncic came to town with his lethal, all-around game. This was the same Mavericks team that gave the Sixers one of their rare home losses last season. This game also saw the return of Josh Richardson, who was swapped for Seth Curry in the offseason. Another familiar face — Boban Marjanovic […] GRADES: Sixers handle Mavs at home - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers: It’s Morey time

Last summer, when the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Boston Celtics, bursting their playoff bubble, it was abundantly clear that their plan for the future had gone off the rails.  Big changes needed to be made if this team was to become a contender. It would have been considered a successful season if just a few […] Philadelphia 76ers: It’s Morey time - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers rumors: Kyle Lowry interested in Philadelphia

I’ve been an avid proponent of adding Kyle Lowry to the Philadelphia 76ers. I’ve written about why the Sixers should inquire about him, three reasons why to trade for him, and why he would stay here for the long term. Now it’s rumored by Keith Pompey of the Inquirer, that Lowry is interested in playing […] Sixers rumors: Kyle Lowry interested in Philadelphia - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers should see if Evan Fournier is available

This season has been going pretty well for the Philadelphia 76ers. They are first in the Eastern Conference, Joel Embiid is playing like an MVP, while both Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris are playing like All-Stars. Certainly, this is the type of turnover that the Sixers were hoping for when they brought in Doc Rivers […] Philadelphia 76ers should see if Evan Fournier is available - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers: Tobias Harris absolutely snubbed from All-Star game

On Tuesday night, the league announced the NBA All-Star Reserves for the 2020-21 season. Only one of the Philadelphia 76ers was included on the list…Not the one that I (or many others) expected. When I read Ben Simmons’ name on the list sent out by The Athletic’s Shams Charania, I was stunned.

GRADES: Sixers win defensive battle, end Raptors win streak

The Sixers made good on the second half of their trip to Tampa as they take down the Kyle Lowry-less Toronto Raptors. The first quarter kicked off slowly with a Pascal Siakam lay-in giving Toronto an early 8-7 lead with 8:12 remaining. From there, Philadelphia kicked off a 13-0 run that they parlayed into a […] GRADES: Sixers win defensive battle, end Raptors win streak - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers: Isaiah Joe overtaking Furkan Korkmaz in rotation

The Philadelphia 76ers recent loss to the Toronto Raptors revealed several aspects about the team that needs to change and is changing. One, in particular, was that rookie Isaiah Joe played significantly more than veteran wing Furkan Korkmaz. It’s weird to refer to Korkmaz as a veteran, but he is in his fourth season, yet, […] Philadelphia 76ers: Isaiah Joe overtaking Furkan Korkmaz in rotation - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Power Rankings: Sixers jersey edition

Buying a Philadelphia 76ers jersey is a rite of passage for any fan. I will always remember my first Sixers jersey, a classic black Allen Iverson jersey. Pretty standard, but still cool and has aged well. Unfortunately, I also went through Elton Brand and Jrue Holiday jerseys, both of whom were off the team within […] Power Rankings: Sixers jersey edition - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
