Photos: The first one is Andre Miller with Sixers GM Ed Stefanski. No, there is no news about Miller's contract (he is in the final year for $10 million). Today was the first practice I saw Stefanski attend. The second photo is Thaddeus Young working on his jumper after practice ended. As you can tell... Read more

The Day Before

Tuesday, October 7, 2008, 11:15 AM
The photo to the left is our view of the practice court. About 20 to 30 minutes before practice ends, the blinds are lifted. There aren't a ton of photo options right now, but once the regular season starts, I promise the photos will improve. Sixers are back at PCOM. They practice today from 11 a... Read more

Back in Philly

Monday, October 6, 2008, 11:24 AM
I considered titling this post "PCOM Day 1." But in addition to sounding like something from NASA, I realized by the end of the season we'd have something like 217 days (or thereabouts). It would become repetitive. For those unaware, as I once was, PCOM stands for Philadelphia College of... Read more

Season's First Cuts

Of the five training camp additions, two remain: Antywane Robinson and Jared Reiner. Technically, the Sixers have one spot open (they currently... Read more

Day 5

Saturday, October 4, 2008, 11:20 AM
Welcome to Day 5 from Penn State. It's the penultimate -- what a great word -- day of Training Camp. I bet nobody is more excited about that than the players, who are currently on the practice court. 76ers are practicing only once today, starting at 11 a.m. and going until ... who knows when. Since... Read more

Camp is Closed

Saturday, October 4, 2008, 4:06 PM
In a move that surprised even his players, head coach Maurice Cheeks gave his players Sunday off, sending them back to Philadelphia a day early. After today's practice, which ran from about 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Cheeks closed training camp. "We got a lot of work done," Cheeks reasoned. "And... Read more

Day 4

Friday, October 3, 2008, 11:21 AM
It's already Day 4 here in State College. It's freezing today, not even 55 degrees. Great, now that the weather update is out of the way, onto the 76ers. They're scheduled to practice from 11 a.m. until, hmmmm, maybe 12:30-1 p.m. would be my guess. It should be shorter because tonight is the open... Read more

Open Scrimmage

Friday, October 3, 2008, 11:03 PM
In front of about 2,000 fans at the Bryce Jordan Center, the 76ers scrimmaged Black vs. White. Black Team Starters: Andre Miller, Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Elton Brand, Sam Dalembert. Reserves: Royal Ivey, Donyell Marshall, Jared Reiner, Antywane Robinson. White Team Starters: Lou Williams... Read more
