I Require Andrew Wiggins.

It's official. I will be completely unsatisfied with this draft if we do not have the opportunity to draft Andrew Wiggins. Everyone else sucks and if we don't get him the team will suck for the...

The Future of Our Franchise...

All of us here at LB have been in a froth about the trade deadline coming on Thursday, and about the draft this summer, as events that will somehow transform our team from the lovable losers (or...

Why I Hate This Season

So. We're almost to the midway point of the season, and our Sixers are bad, but not horrible, at least not consistently. Tonight, they have the Pistons coming in, a team only one game behind them...

Dr. Strangetank, or, How I Learned to Relax and Love the Occasional Win

You have to figure, after the 3-0 start ,they're a much more appropriate 3-8, and just broke a 4-game losing streak. Even the blindest squirrel is going to find a nut here and there. There was no...

Hinkie's Big Gamble, or, Something Smells Funny and It's Not In My Fridge

As everyone knows, Hinkie made an offer to Brett Brown to coach our beloved Sixers. We all love Brett Brown, and we all love that he's not Michael Curry. I think we are generally agreed that having...

Thoughts for a random Sunday morning.

Requiem for a Lightweight: The '12-'13 Sixers

This was going to be our year. We were looking at a 2 seed in the East, had a legitimate weapon against the Heat, we're poised to make some noise. Excitement was high in Sixerville. Even Levin was...

The Pseudo-Official LB SWAG-OFF!!!

With all this talk of swag lately, not to mention Swaggy P himself joining us here in Philly, I couldn't help but wonder about the most important question of all: Which one of our LB hosts is the...

Curmudgeon's Corner: God Hates Sixers Fans.

We were delusional. We just love our team too much. We were naive. Pick your excuse. We went through the draft, picking guys who weren't terribly good at basketball, but had athleticism and size,...

Dr. Strangedraft; or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Moe Harkless

While I'm still not performing the requisite maypole dance, I'm willing to wait and see what we have before I completely write them off. Here's where I am right now: 1) Love the aggressiveness and...

Fascinating...

I can take or leave Hollinger, and even he admits to the flaws in his system, but the statistical analysis destroys most of the players the Sixers are looking at to draft. Since it's an Insider article, I'll glean from it the guys most of us have been talking about at #15. The number is projected PER. Terrence Jones: 14.28 (behind Draymond Green, among others) Marquis Teague: 13.18 (surprisingly well-ranked among perimeter players) Quincy Miller: 12.94 (ahead of Bradley Beal, Harrison Barnes, and Jeremy Lamb) John Henson: 12.11 (behind Furkan Aldemir, whoever that is) Andre Drummond 12.05 Austin Rivers: 9.85 (BOSS!!!) Terrence Ross: 9.12 Perry Jones III: 8.77 (!) Tyler Zeller: 8.23 (behind JaMychal Green) Meyers Leonard: 7.22 (behind, like, almost everyone, except...) Arnett Moultrie: 6.42 (but at least he's not as bad as...) Miles Plumlee: 2.49 (I don't think he was under consideration, but still...wow!)

Thorpe Be Crazy! (More Brilliance from the Worldwide Leader...)

David Thorpe has finally lost his mind completely... This is an Insider article, so for those of you who refuse to pay for really wretched analysis, I'll sum up: - He wants the Sixers to draft Terrence Jones. - He describes Hawes as having "strong defensive upside," but "not offering much on offense." - He gushes all over Jrue (who regressed in a fairly serious way this year, for the most part), which sounds nice until you realize that Jrue is one of "his guys." - Speaking of centers, he does not even speak the name of Vucevic, who seems to have some legitimate offensive ability, even if he lacks testicular fortitude. Seems like more "analysis" by someone who didn't bother watching a single Sixers game this season and looked at the basic stats to come up with something to say.

Curmudgeon's Corner: Meet the New Boss (or BOSS)...

I need to express my distaste for the information that has come to us today. Now. I've never been a supporter of Thorn. His hiring, as one of our Twitterz people put it was "so Sixers Comcast." A...

Curmudgeon's Corner: What are the chances...?

I'll admit it: I didn't think they would get past the Bulls. Originally, I expected a sweep. Then, after all the injuries, I figured it would be over in 6. I thought they would lose Game 6 and then...

Wow. 8 points in the third quarter? Really? 23 points in the entire second half? This is a serious team? While I admit it was nice to see them play a good half of basketball, it's alarming how fast...

So much for our guys...

Pretty sure our guys will not be selected using this new process. Not nearly sexy enough.

Hollinger leaps onto the Sixers' bandwagon...

It's an Insider article, so I'm pasting the relevant part... "Philadelphia 76ers: Hint: When we launch the Power Rankings next week, don't be surprised if the Sixers are a lot higher than you might expect. They might be only 3-2, but the Sixers have the league's third-best scoring margin even though they have yet to play a home game. Moreover, Philly is hearing positive answers to most of it preseason questions. Can Evan Turner take a step forward in Year 2? Apparently so, after he carved up the Hornets for 21 off the bench Wednesday night. Can the Sixers establish a perimeter game? They are shooting 40 percent on 3s even though their best shooter, Jodie Meeks, can't buy a bucket right now. OK, it's only 85 attempts as a team, but thus far Andre Iguodala and Louis Williams are flashing much better long-range games. And finally, there's the big question: Can Spencer Hawes be stopped? Actually, that wasn't a preseason question many had, but Hawes seems intent on getting a big payday after signing for the qualifying offer this past summer. The 7-footer has been the Sixers' best player thus far, averaging 13.0 points and filling his line with 11.4 boards, 3.6 dimes and 2.2 blocks."
