Sixers’ Rookie Report: Isaiah Joe joins Delaware Blue Coats

Sixers: Nick Wright is wrong about Joel Embiid’s MVP case

Sixers center Joel Embiid has continued his incredible, dominant 2020-21 MVP campaign in spectacular fashion. A 50-point, 17-rebound, and five-assist game against the Bulls was followed by 25 points and 17 rebounds against the very pesky Toronto Raptors. All that stacked on to a season during which Embiid has dropped 30 points or more 13 times.

Philadelphia 76ers: It’s Morey time

Last summer, when the Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Boston Celtics, bursting their playoff bubble, it was abundantly clear that their plan for the future had gone off the rails.  Big changes needed to be made if this team was to become a contender. It would have been considered a successful season if just a few […] Philadelphia 76ers: It’s Morey time - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More
