The NBA and the player reps will meet again today.

Sixers.com has a solid interview with one of Larry Brown’s favorite players — George Lynch.

At charlesbarkley.com there are some fantastic highlights of Chuck during his Sixer days

A quick “76ers” search of craigslist.com brings up this great piece of signed Sixers memorabilia from 1983-84

Via Bill Simmons’ baby — Grantland.com — we learn that according to the Oregonian‘s John Canzano last week, the owners have already decided to include an amnesty clause in the yet-signed labor agreement.  The big difference in this version (as opposed to the previous “Allen Houston clause”) : Teams can pick one player to waive, then pay off the rest of his contract … only this time, that player’s deal won’t count against the salary cap (not just the luxury tax).  We think you’ll be surprised at which player Simmons and Jonathan Abrams believe the Sixers would waive.

Great post by Dei Lynam at csnphilly.com about the 76ers new majority owner Josh Harris.

According to probasketball.com Louis Williams will play in the Miami charity game organized by “The Big 3″  for October 8th.

Tonight at 8pm on NBATV there is a great show titled “Last Night of the ABA“.  You won’t want to miss the Dr. J highlights in this show.  Then at 9pm is the classic film “The Fish that Saved Pittsburgh”, which also contains a great performance by the Doc.

Charles Barkley doing karaoke — ’nuff said.

Craig Brackins’ season for Maccabi Ashdod in Israel gets under way in two weeks.  Here’s the team’s official website if you want to follow along.

Via his Twitter account we learn that Iguodala (@mindofAI9) is test driving electric cars.
