Video: Kobe Bryant

At noon the Lakers held shoot around at the Wachovia Center. Tonight, the 76ers play the Lakers at 7. At first, it didn't seem Kobe Bryant would be available at shoot around, but he got off the team bus and came back into the Wachovia Center to talk about, well, anything folks wanted: how it feels...

Falling apart?

Thursday, January 28, 2010, 9:18 AM
If you want to read good news about your 76ers, this isn't the blog post for you. Watching last night's loss to the Milwaukee Bucks felt a little bit like watching the rest of the season unravel. It looked like bad, energy-less basketball, and it felt like the outcome was not of much concern to many... Read more

Between Pacers games

Sunday, January 24, 2010, 12:57 PM
At the Indianapolis Airport waiting for a return flight to Philly. And one of the few not wearing a Colts jersey. Now that it's a few hours removed from last night's win over the Indiana Pacers, and now that there's some legitimate time to deconstruct the game and the game before it (that win over... Read more

He is who we thought he was

Saturday, January 23, 2010, 10:43 PM
After tonight's 107-97 win over the Indiana Pacers, a game in which Elton Brand scored 23 points on 9 for 21 shooting, 76ers coach Eddie Jordan said Brand has officially returned to form. "We know where he is now," Jordan said. "He’s the guy that Ed Stefanski thought he would... Read more

Before tonight's game against the Dallas Mavericks, 76ers coach Eddie Jordan said he was considering re-inserting power forward Elton Brand into the starting lineup.

Yesterday, 76ers center Samuel Dalembert successfully returned to Haiti -- confirmed by his agent, Marc Cornstein.

Sometime today, although the exact details weren't immediately known, 76ers center Samuel Dalembert was scheduled to land in Haiti. As of noon, Marc Cornstein, Dalembert's agent, knew only that Dalembert was trying to get to his native country with Project Medishare, an agency on the ground in Port-au-Prince... Read more

THE Loss

Monday, January 18, 2010, 9:27 PM
Of this season's losses -- and there are so many -- this afternoon's against the Minnesota Timberwolves is by far the worst. It is, dare we say, this season's defining game. The 76ers are up by 20 points, 51-31, with a few minutes left before hafltime. Sure, at the time, it felt like the Sixers should... Read more

Breaking down the Kings

Friday, January 15, 2010, 7:03 PM
Since I spent a good portion of the past week watching the Sacramento Kings, I think we've got a good grasp on the matchups and tendencies for tonight's 76ers vs. Kings game. First thing, Sacramento's star guard Kevin Martin, who missed the previous 32 games with a wrist injury, is back tonight and... Read more

MIA for Team Tyreke

Since I usually don't leave this blog unattended for such a length of time, here's the update: From Saturday's game in Detroit, I flew to Sacramento to do a long story about Kings rookie Tyreke Evans, who will start at point guard tomorrow night against the 76ers. That story about Tyreke and Team Tyreke... Read more
