Why didn’t Okafor work out for the Sixers? Okafor is best with the ball in hands, posting up another player on the low block. His footwork around the basket is impeccable—it is what made him worthy of the third overall selection. But, Okafor’s strengths are also his weakness. Okafor only makes the team better when the ball is in his hand. He also is a … Continue reading Redefining The Center Position
Yes, the Sixers are finally relevant. It has taken a long time for this season to arrive. We went through several single digit win seasons; we saw our general manager Sam Hinkie resign—the mastermind behind “the process”. Quite frankly, even true fans cannot believe that this day is possible: reasonably speculating that Lebron James—the best basketball player in the world and the most prominent sports … Continue reading Lebron James to the Sixers?
Last Wednesday, the Philadelphia Sixers faced the Los Angeles Lakers. There was great anticipation for the game due to the hype surrounding Lonzo Ball.

As a Sixers fan, I am upset how they have handled the Joel Embiid situation. What is frustrating about the entirety of the situation is that Embiid is heading into his fourth season; at this point, the Sixers need to let Embiid prove himself because he is no longer their prized rookie. Instead of looking out for Embiid’s well being, protecting him for the future, … Continue reading Joel Embiid Minutes Restriction
A large takeaway from the first game includes Markelle Fultz’s new free throw shot. It appears that during the offseason, Fultz decided to change the form of his free throw shot because he hit only 65 percent of his free throws in colleges. His new shot, in the video below, is awkward and unnatural. Fultz begins by holding the ball near his waist, raises it … Continue reading Fultz’s Serious Free Throw Problem
