Sam Hinkie: Genius or Joke?

Reading Time: 2 minutesFormer Sixers GM Sam Hinkie was a genius, not a joke. Even though “The Process” and Hinkie himself are referred to by many as violating the integrity of basketball, it revolutionized the sport.

The Joel Embiid Conundrum

Reading Time: 4 minutesPhiladelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid has dug himself quite the hole the last year or so. And as a Celtics fan, it’s very amusing. Remember when Shaq and Charles Barkley got on Embiid’s case for not trying enough? It was earlier this month, on December 10th, after Embiid put up 22 points and 10 rebounds. It was a below average performance for Embiid, but not terrible. Shaq and Barkley were very disappointed, however. “He’s the toughest player in the league to match up with,” Barkley said of Embiid on TNT, “but we don’t talk about...
