An Extensive, Semi-Serious Guide to the 2014-15 Sixers Season

BY PAUL MANCANO

Guess what day it is, guess what day it is.

HUMP DAAAYYYY.

Also, SIXERS OPENING DAAAYYYY.

I don’t remember being this excited for a season since… last season. But before that, since… Bynum. But before that, since the Iverson era. So not very long ago. But I’m still excited. Irrationally excited. Continue reading

Jerami and Me: A Very Biased Look at Jerami Grant

Ron Roberts Gives Sixers Fans More Reasons to Watch the Summer League

BY JUSTIN RUSSELL – Ronald Roberts Jr.’s biggest individual achievement this year was being named to the third team all-Atlantic 10. When you try to find the roster for this team online, well, I’ll spare you the Google, you can’t. South Jersey’s own big man with a 42″ vertical has played out of the national spotlight his entire collegiate career, but Sixers fans are starting to take notice of the man with the pogo sticks in his legs.
