(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   The Philadelphia 76ers keep making moves ahead of the start of the playoffs. This time, however, they didn’t need to look far to find a reinforcement. According to a report by Shams Charania of The Athletic, they’re now expected to convert Ricky Council IV’s contract into a standard deal. He’s now going to make $7.4 million over the next four years, adding over $860,000 in new money for this campaign. That’s why Sixers star Tyrese Maxey took to Twitter to congratulate him about that, making it loud and clear that this contract and opportunity were e ..read more

(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   The Philadelphia 76ers have honored Hall of Fame guard Allen Iverson, who spent much of his career with them, by unveiling a statue of him outside of their practice facility in Camden, New Jersey. It depicted Iverson performing his trademark crossover dribble that he used to help him score 24,368 points over his 14-year NBA career. But some have criticized the diminutive size of the statue, and former NBA player Jamal Crawford, who had a killer crossover dribble himself, took to Twitter to criticize the 76ers organization for making Iverson’s statue ..read more

(Photo by Mike Lawrie/Getty Images)   Back in the day, Allen Iverson was one of the most beloved members ever of the Philadelphia 76ers, and his heart and never-say-die attitude were tailor-made for the gritty city he played much of his career in. He took the Sixers to the 2001 NBA Finals, and although they lost there to a greatly superior Los Angeles Lakers team, the resistance they put up gave that team a special place in the hearts of fans. Right now, there is some hope that the current iteration of the team could go very far in the playoffs, as reigning MVP Joel Embiid has returned fr ..read more

(Photo by Harry How/Getty Images)   James Harden’s NBA legacy is a complicated one. He’s burned bridges everywhere he’s gone, and outside of some Houston Rockets fans, he might not have a big fan base in the league. Nonetheless, some of his former teammates have always had high praise for him, and he’s clearly bonded with some of them. That was evident when he shared a picture of himself, now with the Los Angeles Clippers, alongside Tyrese Maxey when he faced the Philadelphia 76ers (via Aidan LaPorta).

(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   The Philadelphia 76ers struggled mightily this season when Joel Embiid missed two months due to a meniscus injury, and as a result, they have fallen to eighth place in the Eastern Conference. But Embiid is back now, and he appears to be quickly picking up where he left off when he got hurt in late-January. Philly has won both of their games with Embiid back on the court, and Joe Giglio says that the environment surrounding the team is different this year because there isn’t any real controversy hanging over it, per SPORTSRADIO 94WIP on Twitter.

(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   After superstar center Joel Embiid suffered a knee injury in late-January and had to undergo surgery to fix the issue, the Philadelphia 76ers proceeded to plummet down the Eastern Conference standings, as they clearly weren’t the same team without their undisputed leader and face of the franchise. The 76ers have gone from near the top of the East standings to more than likely having to get into the NBA playoffs through the Play-In Tournament, which obviously isn’t ideal for a team that was once considered to be a legitimate title contender.

(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   The Philadelphia 76ers finally have superstar center Joel Embiid back on the floor, and the team is starting to resemble the squad that dominated the competition in the Eastern Conference earlier in the season. Without Embiid, the 76ers have fallen out of the playoff picture in the East and will have to get through the Play-In Tournament in order to make it to the NBA playoffs, which is something that was totally unexpected after how well they were playing with their superstar leading the way. However, the team can now get back to form and it appear ..read more

(Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/Getty Images)   Joel Embiid played his second game back with the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night, scoring 29 points in a win over the Miami Heat. After the game, Embiid spoke with The Athletic about his return and the race for MVP. Because of the number of absences he has had, Embiid is no longer in the running for Most Valuable Player but he said he’s happy he’s ineligible. “The conversation has been toxic for a long time,” Embiid said about the MVP competition. He did admit that there is a lot of great talent in the running for this year’s trophy, but Embiid ..read more

Analyst Says People Need To ‘Dial Back’ Expectations On NBA Player

  For years, the Philadelphia 76ers have been unable to get past the second round of the playoffs. They couldn’t do it with Brett Brown, and they couldn’t do it with Doc Rivers. Ben Simmons failed to help Joel Embiid get over the hump, and James Harden didn’t do much to help his cause, either. Now, the expectation is that a better coach like Nick Nurse and an up-and-coming sidekick like Tyrese Maxey will be better for him, and that could be true. Nonetheless, Embiid has looked pretty gassed in his first two games back from a long layoff, and while he’s going to ramp up his conditioning i ..read more

(Photo by Maddie Meyer/Getty Images)   The Philadelphia 76ers just got their best player back. Joel Embiid is back doing Joel Embiid things, and that’s a scary thought for the rest of the league. Notably, the reigning MVP has been quite busy as of late. According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, he’s expected to be the new face of Skechers basketball after signing a multi-year endorsement deal with the brand (via Run It Back).
