At Comcast SportsNet, Dei Lynam produced a very strong video series titled “Almost Answered” which looks back at the 76ers 2001 NBA Finals team.

Warriors GM Larry Riley says that GSW is “not shopping” Monta Ellis.

It’s not so fun being Allen Iverson lately.  Last week he was begging his way back into the NBA via SLAM magazine and now Tawanna Iverson files for divorce – again.

Jrue Holiday’s younger brother Aaron Holiday scored 54 points in his 1st high school game.  Still we have to give their mom — a former D-I player and current HS coach — credit.  After the game she told the local paper, “He still needs to learn how to get his teammates involved.  He needs to work on his defense.”

John R. Finger of csnphilly.com writes that Markieff Morris could be just what the Sixers need.

Kate Fagan has a recap of Morris’ workout for the Sixers yesterday.  Several “experts” have the Sixers selecting Morris.  Among those “experts” who feel Morris is the Sixers man are the fellas at draftexpress.com as well as nbadraft.net.  Draftexpress.com has a video breakdown of Morris and his game.  Sixers.com also has a video interview with Morris after his workout on Wednesday.

However, Sam Amick of SI.com is NOT one of those writers drinking the Morris Kool-Aid.  Amick projects the Sixers will grab Nikola Vucevic (7-foot & 260 lbs; USC).  Here is Vucevic’s interview after his workout for the 7-6.

Neither is ESPN.com’s Chad Ford who believes the Sixers will go with Tristan Thompson (PF; Texas) at #16.

The Sixers Dancers are in China and they have a video diary of their trip.  Also their auditions for the 2011-12 season are being held on June 21st.  The entire Philadunkia staff would like to volunteer to serve as judges.

Via Twitter we learn that Jrue Holiday (@YaBoyJHo11a) is in Paris and he is NOT riding scooters.  Of course Mo Speights (@MoSpeights16) maintains his hilarious Tweet status.

    If the Sixers pass on Kenneth Faried, they will be sorry.

    Tristian Thompson would be a nice addition. I think his offensive game is something that Coach Collins can expand and I really believe he would be a steal that late in the draft.

    Problem is I doubt he will be available when the 76ers pick.

    I think who ever Philly drafts will go a long way in deciding if Andre is traded and if they still want to trade him then it will have a huge factor in who he is traded for.
