Trading Iguodala ...

Thursday, December 31, 2009, 7:27 PM
So what's it going to take to get the Houston Rockets' Tracy McGrady and his $23 million expiring contract? It's going to take a deal involving, as its main piece, 76ers swingman Andre Iguodala. According to a source close to the situation, the Houston Rockets have said they would only consider... Read more

Interesting night

Wednesday, December 30, 2009, 7:56 PM
I know most people feel there are no important NBA games until April, maybe March. And that may be true. But I'm going to have to say I think tonight's game is a key one for these 76ers. Remarkably enough, the Sixers haven't won back-to-back games since beating the Milwaukee Bucks on Oct. 30 and the... Read more

The T-Mac question

Tuesday, December 29, 2009, 6:14 PM
Now that the Houston Rockets have made it clear they're looking to deal Tracy McGrady, the question -- of course -- is if the 76ers are possibly in on the McGrady action. The answer, right now, is no, there's nothing close right now w/ the Sixers and Houston. A source close to the situation said that... Read more

Here's the latest from Sixerland as we approach tonight's game against the Portland Trail Blazers: Willie Green is out with a sprained left ankle that he suffered in the second half of Saturday night's loss at the Utah Jazz. Allen Iverson will play tonight after missing the previous 4 games. Eddie... Read more

I'm waiting for my flight to Portland, where tomorrow night the 76ers play the Trail Blazers and last season's starting point guard, Andre Miller. A lot has changed this season, not just Miller's departure, but seeing him again might get you thinking about what exactly has happened to this team. The... Read more

A few minutes with Andre Miller

Sunday, December 27, 2009, 7:14 PM
Since I spent most of my morning waiting for the Portland Trailblazers to finish practice -- they practiced for about 2 hours the day before a game -- and then 75 more minutes waiting for Andre Miller to finish his extra shooting routine, I figured I should post the conversation with the 76ers former...

A Road Trip

Tuesday, December 22, 2009, 2:45 PM
Since I'm currently on the train down to Washington D.C., it seems appropriate to take a look at the 76ers upcoming road trip, which kicks off tonight at the Washington Wizards. And it also seems appropriate to discuss the Sixers' first 27 games, which is almost exactly 1/3 of this season. The Sixers'... Read more

Iverson's return likely Dec. 28

Monday, December 21, 2009, 3:16 PM
Today at 76ers practice, all indications pointed towards point guard Allen Iverson sitting the next two games -- tomorrow night at the Washington Wizards and Dec. 26 at the Utah Jazz -- and returning the following game, Dec. 28 at the Portland Trailblazers. The Sixers said Iverson would not travel... Read more

Iverson to be evaluated

Friday, December 18, 2009, 6:50 PM
There's some new news with Allen Iverson's knee, although if he misses anymore games is TBD. 76ers coach Eddie Jordan said before tonight's game that Iverson, who did not make the trip to play the Boston Celtics tonight, would be out tomorrow night against the Los Angeles Clippers, might play on Tuesday...

Iverson will not make the trip to Boston and is expected to be ready for Saturday night’s home... Read more
