Speights to play

Wednesday, December 16, 2009, 6:32 PM
Video: Check out the video of LeBron James in the Deep Sixer player below on the right. James spoke before tonight's game about Allen Iverson, Shaq, and his movement to get Michael Jordan's No. 23 retired from the entire NBA. Also, if you want any of this info right away, follow on Twitter. I'm about... Read more

Video: Jordan after win

Tuesday, December 15, 2009, 12:01 AM
The 76ers stopped their 12-game losing streak tonight, beating the Golden State Warriors. Couple of interesting things post-game. First, the video of Sixers coach Eddie Jordan talking after tonight's win. You can check it out in the Deep Sixer video player below on the right. A lot of the press conference... Read more

The 76ers, losers of 12 straight, play the Golden State Warriors tonight. Realistically (as we all need to be following these Sixers), if they don't win tonight, the losing streak will likely reach 15 games. The Warriors are 7-16, the second-worst team in the Western Conference. The Sixers are 5-18... Read more

Iverson's minutes to be "monitored"

Friday, December 11, 2009, 6:46 PM
We're a few minutes from tonight's tip off here at the Wachovia Center: 76ers vs. Houston Rockets. Sixers have lost 11 in a row, are 5-17, and haven't won since Nov. 18. Here's the latest from the Sixers. First the good, then the bad (although the bad might also be good depending on how you feel)... Read more

All-Star Voting

Thursday, December 10, 2009, 2:42 PM
It doesn't look like the 76ers will have a player represented at the 2010 NBA All-Star game in Dallas. Today, the NBA released the early ballot results. Sixers forward Andre Iguodala is 7th among Eastern Conference forwards with 75,146 votes. Sixers center Samuel Dalembert is 12th among Eastern Conference... Read more

Back to reality

Wednesday, December 9, 2009, 6:20 PM
For the last 10 days, the actual woes of the 76ers have been overshadowed by news the team was considering Allen Iverson, then by the news they had signed him, then on Monday, his "return debut." Tonight still has a little juice left because the Sixers are playing the Detroit Pistons, one... Read more

Iverson: "I'm starting"

Monday, December 7, 2009, 11:09 AM
Videos from today: Iverson on tonight, Iverson and Iguodala. Just finished 76ers shootaround here at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Allen Iverson just said that he will start tonight, so we can put that speculation to rest. A few minutes later, Sixers coach Eddie Jordan confirmed... Read more

A Welcome Back Loss

Monday, December 7, 2009, 9:27 PM
Because of the emotion present tonight upon announcement of the starting lineup, a lineup which included point guard Allen Iverson, it seemed nothing that happened within the actual game could actually match those first few moments. And although no one would claim the game did -- and what could?... Read more

He's Back!

Monday, December 7, 2009, 7:11 PM
There's more energy tonight inside the Wachovia Center than any previous night. And if you're watching at home, you saw it on Comcast. But there's something different about actually being inside this arena and hearing the reaction of the crowd upon hearing Iverson's introduction. I took video of the... Read more

Iverson arrives at 5:59

Monday, December 7, 2009, 6:20 PM
There was a little bit of a chaotic scene inside the 76ers locker room a few minutes ago. It was 5:55 and Allen Iverson's locker was still untouched, the point guard had yet to arrive. Sixers owner Ed Snider walked into the locker room and there seemed to be a quick conference where there was some... Read more
