Separate Ways

Saturday, November 21, 2009, 9:35 AM
Maybe last night, 76ers coach Eddie Jordan saw how his team has been playing for the first time. Or maybe last night, he finally decided to say something about how he's been seeing his team. Either way, last night, Jordan seemed frustrated and angry for the first time this season. I think most fans... Read more

Video: Difference in Brand

Friday, November 20, 2009, 7:14 PM
That has to be the 76ers motto through 11 games this season, since they are still looking for a defining victory. Tonight's game against the Memphis Grizzlies isn't an opportunity for one of those, either. Maybe tomorrow against the Cleveland Cavaliers. If you've heard a lot about Elton Brand not... Read more

Rodney Carney probable

Thursday, November 19, 2009, 2:57 PM
Rodney Carney only participated in non-contact drills today during the 76ers practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. In last night's last-second win over the Charlotte Bobcats, Carney sprained his right wrist. Sixers are calling him probable for tomorrow night's game against the... Read more

Sammy D rumors

* A couple of additions ... after a few more phone calls, it looks like this deal is not near happening. So rest on it. It certainly won't be happening today. But don't think Dalembert is content being a Sixer. His party is actively looking for a new home for the Sixers' center. Also, I give a 50-50... Read more

Brand out of starting lineup?

Monday, November 16, 2009, 2:10 PM
It seems the knee injury to reserve center Marreese Speights might spark a number of changes. Just sitting down after 76ers practice today at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. If you were following Deep Sixer on Twitter, you would have had some of this info about an hour ago, click... Read more

Speights out 6-to-8 weeks

Sunday, November 15, 2009, 3:09 PM
76ers second-year big man Marreese Speights could miss up to two months with a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his left knee. With 9 minutes, 38 seconds left in the fourth quarter of last night's game against the Chicago Bulls, Speights grimaced and grabbed his left knee. It was... Read more

Go Mode

Saturday, November 14, 2009, 8:05 PM
Here's Thaddeus Young's Tweet from earlier today: "Go mode ... Bulls ... Chitown ... Need this one enough said." So the 76ers are obviously in Chicago tonight, playing the Bulls in a game that tips off in about 20 minutes. After last night's really bad loss to the Utah Jazz -- the worst... Read more

76ers pre-game

Friday, November 13, 2009, 5:27 PM
*Just saw Thad ... he's playing tonight. And he said he Tweeted about it earlier. Maybe I need to be on Twitter more often. Here at the Wachovia Center for tonight's game between the 76ers and Utah Jazz, set for a 7 p.m. tip (okay, more like 7:12). Sixers small forward Thaddeus Young is still a... Read more

Video: Jordan on Elton

Thursday, November 12, 2009, 1:44 PM
76ers practiced today at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. As has been for the last week or so, the topic was power forward Elton Brand, who played only about 6 minutes in the second half of yesterday's win over the New Jersey Nets. Sixers coach Eddie Jordan, understandably, seems to... Read more

On the bright side?

Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 5:43 PM
*Primoz remains inactive tonight for the 7th straight game. Check out the Deep Sixer video in the bottom right video player for a video with Iguodala and Speights running a couple of football pass routes before tonight's game against the New Jersey Nets. Speights looks like he could have been a good... Read more
