Now What?

Sunday, December 14, 2008, 5:08 PM
What can we take from last night's victory? Is it just one win against a struggling team or is better play on the horizon? I don't have these answers yet, no one does.

Saturday, December 13, 2008, 1:19 PM
Well here it is: A change. Is it the right change? Is it the change that will propel the 76ers forward. From the beginning, from that 2-5 start, we pointed to this time frame. We said, "Wait for the 20-to-25 game mark." Here it is, 23 games. If you're looking for the nuts and bolts story... Read more
