Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Evan Turner was a slow starter in college. It took him until his junior season with Ohio State to get acclimated but once he figured it out he became the National Player of the Year. His NBA path seems to be following the same blueprint for success. After being the second overall ...

Monday, August 13th, 2012

The Philadelphia 76ers were part of the NBA's blockbuster trade of the summer when they, the Magic, the Lakers and the Nuggets got together Friday to consummate a deal that sent Andre Iguodala out of Philly and brought Andrew Bynum to town.

Andre Iguodala may not have originally been on Team USA's radar as far back as ten days ago, but the 76ers swingman may play a huge integral role in this team winning a gold medal. The 6-foot-6 shooting guard/small forward prides himself on defense and looks to play a defining role ...

I didn't expect the NBA Playoffs series with the Boston Celtics against the Philadelphia 76ers to get to a Game 7, but I suppose nobody should be really surprised that the Celtics couldn't close the series out in Philly in Game 6. Boston is now 2-11 in playoff road games ...
