NOTES, LINKS & TWEETS

Everyone saw the switch hand dunk that Blake Griffin threw down on Hawes this past week.  But did you notice Evan Turner’s reaction on the bench after the damage was done.  This clip from csnphilly.com doesn’t give it full justice (but you get my drift).  After his initial chuckle, Turner went on to cover his mouth with a towel as he yucked it up. 

Brian at depressedfan.com looks at the Sixers trade or not to trade options coming out of the ASB and he has some very interesting insight in this post.

Spike Eskin at cbsphilly wrote a great post on the fact that Sixers fans deserve to know the truth about what is going on with Bynum’s knees…”The fact is that if the organization was always aware that Bynum playing was an iffy proposition, it was irresponsible to start that hype machine. Irresponsible on the part of the team to paint the team as a contender. Irresponsible on the part of team CEO Adam Aron for fanning the flames of it all…”  AMEN brother…AMEN 

Former 76er Dikembe Mutombo belives he should be in the Hall of Fame and sort of compares himself to Hakeem Olajuwon.  Maybe that Geico commercial has gone to his head.

Mrcus Hayes of philly.com has a long piece on Jrue Holiday that doesn’t really unearth any new info, but it’s still a decent read.

The Point Forward’s Ben Golliver looks at the 10 Best Dunks in the history of the dunk contest…J-Rich is on the list.

According to this story by Dei Lynam, DC remains focused of “fixing” the Sixers ills, but he is clearly frustrated (as we have all seen).  That’s all fine with me, but the whining about the injuries by Collins has to stop. 

Former 76er Charles Barkley was on the Dan Patrick Show recently and had a couple great quotes.

A check on former 76er Andre Iguodala show that Dre has been suffering from a neck injury and has not played in two straight for the Nuggs.  Denver had won 9 in a row before Dre’s injury and have now lost 3 consecutive games.

Over at libertyballers.com Michael Levin reveals some very funny Sixers related t-shirts you can purchase from their site.

A quick “76ers” search on craiglist.com brings up this satin reversable beauty.

csnphilly.com’s John Finger has a review of the Sixers first 51 games from this season.

Via the 76ers Twitter handle (@Sixers) we learn that the ASG media day will be carried live on NBA.com today at 1:30pm.

    Yeah, I saw ET laughing, and he should have been. It’s laughable how unathletic this team looks sometimes. That’s why they play old-man teams like the Celtics and Lakers tough, and struggle with teams that can run fast and jump high (not to mention teams that have ‘hustle’ guys). That’s where they miss Iguodala the most- in the raw athleticism department. There’s nobody on this team that makes the other team think “this guy might rip off my arm if I try to block it” like when Iguodala was going to the rim. I cringe every time ET is running the break; I know a turnover or a weak layup attempt is coming. I’ll be there are guys on the bench laughing then, too. At least on the other team’s bench.
