NEW YORK — “It’s about time,” Ben Simmons said with a smile. The 6-foot-10 point guard for the Philadelphia 76ers, and reigning NBA Rookie of the Year, has only been in the league for two years — but in that time he’s had to hold back on which shoes he breaks out on the court […]

Where will LeBron go? As we all mull over that question, an unspoken notion, that any NBA player should want to play with LeBron James, steers how the overall discussion will unfold.

First the Philadelphia 76ers fought off the sweep from the Boston Celtics. Can they avoid the gentleman’s sweep in Game 5? Well, history certainly isn’t on Philly’s side. No team has ever rallied from down 0-3 to win an NBA playoff series. You’d be insane to continue to “Trust the Process,” but how about we […]

Walking toward his bench after fouling out of a game that his team had “gifted” the Boston Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid removed his goggles and forcibly flung them into the base of the scorer’s table.

The Philadelphia 76ers, after “trusting” the “process,” have completed their first playoff series victory since 2012. It happened in five games over the Miami Heat, and sharpshooter J.J. Redick led the charge with 27 points. But Tuesday night in Philly was far more than a series victory. It was a moment. The presence of Meek […]

This is the time when desperation sets in as teams face elimination from the NBA playoffs. Such is the fate of the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat. San Antonio was able to prevent the Golden State Warriors from sweeping, thanks to the heroics of Manu Ginobili in Game 4. Can the Spurs stay […]

It started with the Miami Heat picking up Ben Simmons defensively in the backcourt, putting a body on him early in the Philadelphia 76ers’ offense.

2018 NBA Playoffs, Ben Simmons, NBA, Philadelphia 76ers -

PHILADELPHIA — His temperament is best described as even-keeled, but in the moments before his first playoff game, Ben Simmons was unusually hyped. So hyped that the normally quiet Philadelphia 76ers guard went so far as to make demands of backcourt mate J.J. Redick, who had only 11 years of NBA playoff experience going into […]
