BY CONNOR McGLYNNPhiladelphia 76ers assistant-turned-summer-league-head-coach Billy Lange said from the beginning of team practices in late June that his team’s performance would not be judged on wins and loses. Rather, the two-year NBA coach is using the time to make sure his group of new players develop their skills and adjust to life in the Association.

Antler Rant: Forget Exum, Keep MCW

BY PAUL MANCANO – On Wednesday, the news that Joel Embiid would need foot surgery broke, and everybody lost their minds. The entirety of the online basketball community simultaneously got texts from Sam Hinkie saying the Sixers were without a doubt going to draft Australian point guard Dante Exum (maybe it was a group text or something).

Brett Brown’s Fingerprints All Over NBA Champion Spurs

By Paul Mancano – I watched Sunday night as the seconds ticked off the clock in San Antonio, ending one of the most one-sided NBA Finals in recent memory. During the five-game series, the Spurs outscored the defending champs by 70 points, and showed the world that Gregg Popvich’s winning formula is still unmatched. Continue reading
