The 76ers just finished their night practice, which was closed, for the most part, to the media. We spoke with head coach Maurice Cheeks afterwards. Most importantly, there were no injuries. Cheeks said it was a good, hard practice with a lot of running. While there was no official scrimmaging... Read more

Not many of you are lucky enough to be spending this (actually quite chilly) last day of September in Happy Valley with the new-look Sixers. So as I sit in this Starbucks surrounded by "We Are Penn State" t-shirts, let me pass along a few quotes from this morning's season-opening practice... Read more

Ever since blockbuster free-agent Elton Brand put pen to paper in early July, the 76ers have been building momentum, adding four additional free agents, and bolstering their roster to what many people believe could be contender status.

Mo's Take

Just finished with the 76ers Media Luncheon at the Wachovia Center. Head coach Maurice Cheeks talked about all things Sixers. The thing about this year's team -- and you can even pick up the vibe at events like this -- is the level of excitement about what the Sixers might become this season. I wasn't... Read more

A word with Kareem Rush

Tuesday, September 23, 2008, 7:32 PM
I spoke with Kareem Rush this afternoon. He was flying to Philly tonight. He said he's been in and out of town the last few weeks: looking for a place and working out with the team. He sounded excited for the season. The key point I took from what he said was that he was excited because he believed... Read more
