Sixers : Unhappy Iverson scuttles trade to Bobcats
Posted by Dal on

Allen Iverson was nearly shipped to the Charlotte Bobcats but his unhappiness at joining the newest National Basketball Association team reportedly doomed the deal.

Charlotte was one of the few clubs that could fit Iverson's contract into their salary cap. The Hornets spend 38 million dollars in salaries, about 15 million dollars shy of the NBA's cap of 53.1 million dollars a team.

Players who likely would have joined the 76ers would have contracts that expire within 18 months, meeting Philadelphia's needs.

Sixers : 'Rebuilding' could mean A.I. goes

Sixers picked lucky number 13 in this year's draft, right where their wretched season said they should be, surprising no one. GM Billy King has mentioned "Rebuilding" the sixers. After this season's implosion, there are only two directions King can go - either retool around Iverson or rebuild without him.

Sixers : Take a look at 10 games the Sixers threw away
Posted by Dal on

The Sixers will have no one but themselves to blame if they don't get into the playoffs.

They entered Saturday's game at Orlando one game behind the Chicago Bulls for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

They dropped to 37-42 after the 104-85 blowout loss at Miami on Friday night, but if they had taken care of business and won the games they should've won, especially the ones they had in their back pockets, they would've easily cruised into the playoffs.

Here's a look at 10 games they should've won:

Sixers : Sixers outrun Bulls to revive playoff hopes
Posted by Dal on

Allen Iverson scored 39 points and the slumping 76ers beat Chicago 89-75 on Saturday night to tie the Bulls for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

That snapped the Sixers' three-game losing streak and gave them a four-game split with the Bulls. Chicago currently owns the next tiebreaker, better conference winning percentage, if the teams finish in a two-way tie.

"If we lost this one, it's almost a wrap," said Andre Iguodala, who had 10 points and seven rebounds.

Sixers : Iverson named NBA Players of Week
Posted by Dal on

Snubbed by Team USA, Allen Iverson celebrated his third NBA Player of the Week award of the season on Monday.

The four-time scoring champion of the Philadelphia 76ers averaged a league-high 37.3 points on 56 percent shooting and 9.3 assists in four games to earn Eastern Conference honors.

The award comes one day after Iverson learned he will not have a chance to compete for a spot on the United States team that will play in the 2006 FIBA World Championships and 2008 Olympics.

Sixers : Winning Streak Snapped Against Pacers
Posted by Dal on

Allen Iverson had 33 points and nine assists, but couldn't lead the Sixers to their third straight victory.

Jackson's layup with 2.9 seconds left lifted the Indiana Pacers to a 94-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.

"For that to happen with 4.9 seconds left, it's devastating," Iverson said.

Iverson has scored 120 points and dished out 31 assists in three games since he was snubbed for the U.S. national team. He reached 40 points and 10 assists in consecutive games for the first time in his 10-year career, but fell short of doing it again.

Sixers : A.I.'s lead streaking Sixers past Bulls
Posted by Dal on

Allen Iverson was challenged by coach Maurice Cheeks during the All-Star break to become more of a leader on the court, share the ball and take over when needed.

It looks like the former MVP not only listened, but is interested in following through on the plan.

"We tried it different ways in the first half of the season and now we just have to do it the way Mo Cheeks wants it done every night," Iverson said.

Iverson scored 14 of his 38 points in the fourth quarter, Andre Iguodala had 20 and Kyle Korver 19 to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to their third straight win, 108-102 over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.

Allen Iverson went back to breaking his opponents ankles.

Iverson scored 34 points with nine assists in his return to the starting lineup and did what he almost always does against Cleveland, leading the Philadelphia 76ers over the Cavaliers 100-95 on Saturday night.

"I was like a kid in a candy store," said Iverson, who added five rebounds, four steals and made all 14 free throws in 46 minutes. "It felt like the first game of the season because I was excited to be back."

Sixers : Iverson Keeps Promise in Comeback Victory
Posted by Dal on

With the Philadelphia 76ers trailing by 19 points late in the third quarter, Allen Iverson made a promise to his teammates during a timeout.

"I promised them that if we got it under 10, we'd win the game," he said.

Iverson kept his word when Andre Iguodala's follow of Chris Webber's missed layup narrowly beat the buzzer, lifting the 76ers over the Minnesota Timberwolves 86-84 on Sunday.

"It was one I'll never forget," Iverson said.

In other news, Kobe Bryant made history by scoring 81 points!!! That's second only to Wilt's 100-point game. I never thought I hear someone scoring 81 points in this day and age. Kobe's PPG jumped 1 point and distances himself ahead of AI.

Jaric missed a jumper and rebound by Webber and a timeout. Nine secs remaining they set a screen for Iverson while inbounding the ball but he was double teamed so he gave it to Webber and Webber drived in for a layup, bounced off to the foul line and Andre I. made a one-handed jumper at the buzzer!

Sixers : Iverson's jumper forces OT, 76ers win
Posted by Dal on

Maybe it was the players-only paintball outing. Or maybe the earful the 76ers received from coach Maurice Cheeks got their attention. Possibly, it was the 2 1/2 hour practices.

Whatever the reason, Philadelphia's woeful defense was wonderful against Memphis.

Allen Iverson hit the tying jumper with 3.2 seconds left in regulation and scored 30 points to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to an 89-86 overtime victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night.

Sixers : Philly lose to LA Lakers, AI loses scoring lead

Back from a two-game suspension, Bryant made all seven of his 3-point shots and scored 48 points Friday night in a 119-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

He moved a fraction ahead of the 76ers' Allen Iverson, who had 31 points, in the NBA scoring race. Bryant raised his average to 33.166 a game to Iverson's 33.090.

Iverson has four scoring titles and no NBA championship rings. Bryant has no scoring titles and three rings. "I'd trade all of 'em for one of his rings," Iverson said. "People think I care about something like scoring titles because of the way I compete and the way I score night in and night out. I don't want to just be a scorer. I want to be a winner."

Sixers : Iverson's 53 points can't deliver Sixers

Allen Iverson nearly pulled a Kobe Bryant on Friday. Iverson scored 53 points, the fifth-highest total of his career, but Joe Johnson had 24 to lead the Hawks over the Philadelphia 76ers 111-108 on Friday night.

"I'm as disappointed as everybody else on my team," Iverson said. "We wanted to go into the holidays with a win. We'll have to get this one out of our system and come back to work."

Kobe Bryant had a career-high 62 points earlier in the week (but also had 0 assists). Iverson also pulled down 6 rebs and 5 asts.

He broke the record that Shareef Abdur-Rahim set at 7-year-old Philips Arena with a 50-point performance against Detroit on Nov. 23, 2001. Iverson has scored 50 in nine games, including a career-best 60-point effort in a 112-99 win over Orlando last Feb. 12.

Sixers : Sixers Still 1st Place in a Mediocre Division
Posted by Dal on

Sorry for the lack of was exam time :-p

Sixers have been a mediocre team at best, going 0-4 before coming back with 2 wins. They're still 1st place in a crappy division, but haven't shown they could hang with the best yet

AI's play has been nothing but stellar. He's been dropping 34, 37, 43, 42 pts a game and leading the L in scoring (34.1). So far, it's been one of his best seasons yet (out of all his 10 season, see 10 years of AI) It just shows you how much he's flourishing under Coach Mo Cheeks. But the Sixers' biggest problem is Defense. Sixers are 3rd in Points Against them (102.7) and seem to lose their leads in game easily. Their wins usually come with outscoring their opponents. It's fun to watch, but in the end it's defense that wins games (eg. Pistons, Spurs) It's quite contrast of the Sixers back in '01 under Coach Larry Brown. The Sixers were the top defensive team in the East, and teams would fear playing Philly because of their stingy defense.

Sixers are still 1st in the weak Atlantic Division, but have yet to show they can compete with some tougher competition. Let's see if they can get into their championship form as the season continues
