Charlotte Observer "Charlotte Hornets center Al Jefferson never enjoys shooting 2-of-9 in a half. But this was one of those “greater good’ situations: The Philadelphia 76ers were willing to do just about anything not to be beaten by Jefferson Friday. So just about every other Hornet beat them. With the Sixers..." December 20
ESPN.com "NBA commissioner Adam Silver says that the perception of tanking in the league is greater than the reality of it. "I absolutely don't think any team is trying to lose," Silver said in an interview with ESPN's Andy Katz for "Outside the Lines." "No player is going out there to lose," Silver..." December 20
Courier-Post "There were 22 Pennsauken High School basketball players in the stands Monday night for a Sixers home game against the Celtics.

CSN New England "The Boston Celtics opened Monday's game against Philadelphia with nine straight missed shots.

New York Post "Before the Nets faced the 76ers Friday night in Brooklyn, general manager Billy King said his team needed to start playing better.

CSN Philly "Every player knows trades are part of being in the NBA. Knowing it and having it happen can be two different experiences. Thursday afternoon, the trade between the Nets and the Sixers involving Brandon Davies became official. On the surface, one would say no great loss for the franchise. The..." December 13
Atlanta Journal-Constitution "The Hawks were digging the long ball again Wednesday night, and why not? When you’re third in the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage, and writing paychecks to the league’s top gunner and three of its top 25, why not let it fly? Kyle Korver scored 17 points to match Paul Millsap, yet even after..." December 11

CSN Philly "I'm sorry. Did I say Magic Johnson? I meant Sam Hinkie. Wait. I'm not sure. The Sixers have been railed on by NBA pundits and bloggers-not-in-Philly for being the biggest bunch of frauds for openly tanking. Or not tanking. Or rebuilding. Whatever you want to call it. But Magic Johnson, one..." December 10
Pro Basketball Talk "There are few reasons to subject yourself to a Philadelphia 76ers game this season. It’s ugly basketball. They play fast but in the way a four-year-old runs fast — out of control and doomed to fall hard. There is talent to develop, but sorting the wheat from the chaff is not a simple job for Brett..." December 10
CSN Philly "During training camp, Joel Embiid would sit on a chair inside the foul line and take shots or an assistant coach would throw him bounce passes on the low block, also while he was sitting. No matter the drill, Embiid had to be sitting. He had strict instructions to put zero weight on his..." December 10
Only one real trade in the works for Brooklyn: Once more, Nets-76ers trying to complete an Andrei Kirilenko deal, league sources tell Yahoo.
CSN Philly "Jason Richardson is something of the forgotten Sixer. He's 33 years old, injured, and likely doesn't fit in to any of the Sixers rebuilding plans. But for the time being he's still with the 76ers and adds a very unique perspective to the young bunch. J-Rich has been on his share of awful..." December 05
CSN Philly "The wait is over. It took the Sixers 18 games over 35 days to get their first victory, 85-77, over the Minnesota Timberwolves. They did not tie the Nets' record 18-game losing streak to start the season in 2009. They did feel rewarded for staying the course, despite their woes becoming a..." December 04
CBSSports.com "Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown said this week, before the Sixers finally mercifully got a win, that before the lottery he had expected the team to draft Andrew Wiggins and Nik Stauskas. Instead, the Sixers fell, and Sam Hinkie punted on the best draft in seven years, getting Joel Embiid (out..." December 04
San Antonio Express-News "The Spurs led by as many as 24 in the first half, then had to sweat out the final few minutes as the winless Sixers made things semi-interesting down the stretch before holding firm Monday at the Wells Fargo Center for their eighth straight victory and 11th in 12 overall. Philadelphia (0-17)..." December 02
Pro Basketball Talk "The Philadelphia 76ers’ defense is bad. Their offense is potentially historically bad (although they have improved a little lately they are still far and away the worst in the NBA and just ahead of worst-ever pace).

Nerlens Noel in some serious discomfort at end of practice. Walking very gingerly. No idea what or how severe
Dallas Morning News "The only goal Saturday night for the Mavericks was not to become the answer to this week’s most frequently asked trivia question.

November 27
Fox Sports "The Philadelphia 76ers are 0-14. This is historically horrible for a franchise that has already defined the mark for awful. The 76ers have a ways to go to catch their 1972-73 namesakes. That team went 9-73 -- the worst mark for an 82-game season -- in the NBA. If this edition of the 76ers..." November 26

Pro Basketball Talk "I think we all have an intellectual understanding of what is going on in Philadelphia: In that market the draft is the way to rebuild, and if you’re going to go with the “be bad to be good” plan then don’t sugar coat it, don’t do it halfway, go all in. We’re still a few years away from seeing if..." November 25
CSN Northwest "As Terry Stotts wrapped up his postgame press conference at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, he was asked one final question.

CBSSports.com "The Philadelphia 76ers partnered with Papa John's to offer their fans half-off online orders the day after wins this season … but, 11 games in, they haven't won a single game.

CSN Philly "Eric Bledsoe thinks Kentucky could beat the Sixers. The Suns' guard seemed pretty serious about it. On Wednesday, Bledsoe did an interview with Sirus XM NBA radio. Bledsoe spent much of the time praising his alma mater while dogging the Sixers. Bledsoe not only said the Wildcats would beat the..." November 20
CBSSports.com "Phoenix Suns point guard Eric Bledsoe has the utmost confidence in his alma mater. Or he has absolutely no respect for the Philadelphia 76ers. One of the two.
