Unless you live in a cave, you are aware that the 76ers are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Wilt’s 100-point game tonight.  Just a little FYI…The current Sixers have not scored 100 points in a game since January 23rd.  That’s 19 straight games without reaching triple digits.

Tom Moore of phillyburbs.com looks at Evan Turner’s decreased role.

Extensive story from the Atlantic about Dikembe Mutombo’s recent business troubles.  Wouldn’t you be just a little suspicious if someone offered you the chance to buy “tons” of gold in a third world country and then remove it from said country?  I would have been.

How bad have the Sixers 4th quarter struggles gotten?  Well, the respected national hoops blog The Point Forward is even concerned for the 7-6

His minutes may be down, but not all is bad for ET.  In case you missed it, Crossingbroad.com lets us know that Evan Turner’s girlfriend is smoking hot.  Now if his jump shot could just catch fire once in a while. 

In SI.com’s NBA power rankings, the Sixers have dropped to 12th…”the Sixers are second only to woeful Charlotte in their percentage of attempts from 16 to 23 feet out, generally the least accurate shot. Philly also gets the lowest percent of their points from free throws of any team…”

Former 76er Charles Barkley absolutely ripped his buddy Michael Jordan for the job he has done in Charlotte.  For once Chuck actually was correct in his analysis.

On Monday I suggested that the Sixers should make a trade with MIL and acquire Stephen Jackson.  Well, last night Jackson was a DNP — hamstring.  I don’t believe for a second that Capt. Jack is hurt.  He’s in the doghouse and should come cheap. 

Michael Levin at Libertyballers.com takes a close up look at the last 5 minutes of the OKC game.  WARNING: It’s not any easier to relive 2 days removed.

Brain at depressedfan.com looks at tonight’s game vs. the GSW and urges us all to put the OKC loss in the past.

As you know by now, the Sixers waived Francisco Elson.  Well, Via Twitter we learn that Elson’s birthday was on Tuesday.  Damn that’s cold…even for Frozone.
