Give them no mercy
Philadelphia had this one won at the start


AP- New Orleans, LA| Dec. 4, 2012

Image

I'll admit it now, I didn't expect this game to be close, and it didn't end that way either. The 76ers were able to get an okay lead that only multiplied as the game went on. In the end of the first quarter they were already up by 7 points. Philly then made it more and more embarrassing for New Orleans. The Hornet's defense was solid at times, but at others it looked extremely lazy causing them to get pushed farther down. If you tried to argue this game as being solid, you would have been lying. It was all 76ers, all the way.

In the forth, Philadelphia even slowed down their pace, New Orleans still couldn't take advantage. They were trying to get as many buckets as possible, but nothing could seem to go right. The Sixers weren't even trying to rub it in, they just started running plays to kill the clock. Eric Gordan did look good for New Orleans. He was able to tack in 30 points. Still outdone by both Evan Turner and Wilson Chandler. Both having 32 with Turner having 11 assists to go along with it. The game ended in a blowout and the final quarter wasn't a shootout. It was just a dominant team going against a weak team.


"I will say that game was more fun than the Jazz game we had not too long ago, but it wasn't any less like a normal practice." Evan Turner said while talking to Doris Burke. "It was a good matchup going against Eric Gordan and all, but I still wasn't happy about how that team played. And I'm on the opposite bench. It clearly could have been better but we showed up, they didn't."

Now, the Philadelphia 76ers will finally head home after a 7 game road trip to play the Detroit Pistons and then go against the Chicago Bulls in the first game of a back to back. Join us later for the Bulls game.

POTG: Evan Turner

Perkins' Time

Top prospect Derrick Perkins has made decision, chooses to play in Spain
His team is Real Madrid


AP- Dec. 7 2012

The top prospect of this year's draft Derrick Perkins has made his decision to play for Real Madrid to get in this year's draft.

Image

In order for this young player to play for a college team, he would have had to finish his senior year of high school first. Which wasn't an option since his family needs the money. He will be getting about $2.00M to play just the rest of the Euroleague season which ends in March this year. He will be able to have his own March Madness but it won't be in any type of school system. Perkins will still get home schooled to properly graduate or he can to a Spaniard university to finish of his school days so he won't exactly will have to drop out of school.

The reason Perkins had to pick a place to play is because the National Basketball Association announced that in order for him to be eligible to qualify for the draft, he would have had to either play in a college, or go overseas. He did quite well over at Oak Hill academy where he averaged almost a double double each game. Though now he will be able to learn much more by playing for one of the best Spanish teams in Europe. In March of this year, if Real Madrid is able to make it to the Championship game, Turner Sports will be following and give his updates.

Until then, this is Marvin Mars for Turner Sports, talk to you all soon as I follow the 76ers at Chicago game Tuesday.

Mr. Perfect steps in

Riley Gisseman steps in for exclusive interview

Image


Gainesville, FL

After declaring for the draft later than most prospects, Riley Gisseman has been rapidly climbing up the draft boards, impressing scouts from Utah all the way to New York. He is now widely considered as the best point guard with his combination of defense (led the NCAA in steals) and offense (led all NCAA point guards in points scored). He also had a game with 56 points, 6 assists, and 3 steals against Florida, he has wowwed almost all teams into wondering if they can jump up in the draft to grab him. Right now he is projected to be picked at #10 to 1 lucky team. To find out more about this guard from BYU Dorris Burke caught up with him.


Burke: You are now known all around the world as the "newly refined Jimmer" what do you think of this comparison?

Gisseman: Oh boy, As much as we compare off the court we are not the same. Besides my nickname is already Mr. Perfect right?

Burke: How do you compare?

Gisseman: We both played for BYU and were both scoring guards. But that's about it.

Burke: Do you think that you're the better player?

Gisseman: Yes.

Burke: Why?

Gisseman: I'm the one who has the chip on their shoulder.

Burke: What team do you want to play for?

Gisseman: Whatever team wants me, and whether I get picked 1st or 41st I will work so hard to make that team stronger

Burke: Thanks a ton Riley, we wish you the best here at ESPN.

Gisseman: Thank you.

Since I get to write about him before Marvin Mars does, Riley Gisseman just looks like a great prospect so far getting to a mature age of 22. This doesn't look like it will be just flashes in the pan but a thunderstorm in the kitchen. This has been Ernie Simms for ESPN, talk to you next time.

Quick note: I didn't write most of this article, only the part including Marvin Mars, Thanks a lot to hiteshom for giving a story to write up for his draftee, whoever else wants to write one up can just send them to me.

Beasts in the East preview
We look at the match-up between the top-seeded Bulls and 76ers


AP- Chicago, IL| Jan 9, 2012

Image

Image

@

Image

The top teams in the East are set to battle it out in this early year contest. Both teams haven't let anyone catch up to them as both teams still haven't tacked on more than ten losses yet. Two of the three teams remaining with the Lakers being the last team with just 9. The 76ers, who are first in the East right now, are 16-4 on the road this season looking great in about every win they have received outside of of home every time. The Bulls, second in the East. Are 9-4 at home. Looking just as dominant as their counter part, this game looks great for both teams involved.

This game only marks game 1-3 of the series we will see between these two, but it should be for the top spot in the East each time. Right now, the Bulls are 1.5 games behind the Sixers and can become as close to only half a game if they pull out a win tonight. Don't expect Philadelphia to lay down and get curbed-stomped though, they have shown complete dominance over the last few weeks blowing out several teams they have gone against and probably don't look to go easy on their Eastern foe.

In the beginning of the season, critics thought that Chicago and Miami would be fighting it out for the Eastern crown. With Philadelphia coming in with their recent emergence, they want to take the East by any means necessary. They have already beat a team of the caliber beating Los Angeles earlier in the season. Both teams will now show what it takes to be dominant in the East come tip-off where this game could possibly go back and forth between each other.

Down to the players. We know that Evan Turner has been tearing teams up most of this season. He has been able to put up 30-10 games like crazy and have put up 45-15 and even dropped 50 earlier this season. His Superfriend, Wilson Chandler has been no slouch either. He's been scoring in the high twenties every time Turner has been putting up spectacular numbers. On the Chicago side. Derrick Rose and Richard Hamilton have looked like a good tandem. The Bulls have looked around for years to find a good Shooting Guard and they got that player in Rip. Rose's numbers are down though, he isn't putting up as much numbers as he did last season, but that doesn't seem to be hurting the team any as he is now able to trust his teammates to get their own open shots and score.

This is going to be exciting folks, join me for the post-game wrap up right after this game reaches its completion. I'm Marvin Mars and I bid you a farewell.

Beasts In the East
Philadelphia walks out victorious


AP- Chicago, IL| Jan. 9, 2012

Image

What a matchup, the 76ers and Bulls kept this game close all the way through fighting it out the whole time trying their best not to give up the advantage. It was all excitement in the building tonight as two of the best team in the league duked it out for the first time this year. This game was mostly a chess match and Philadelphia won it with a 7 point margin.

In the first half, the lead was being tossed back and forth between the two teams as one just couldn't top the other. At the end of the game, there were a total of 13 lead changes and the highest point deficit was 13 points held by Philadelphia. Philadelphia tried their best to keep up in the first two quarters after only being down by two at the half and completely started fighting from there. This wasn't a showing of their blowout ways, but who was expecting a blowout. Chicago had their own fair of comebacks by most of Philly's scoring runs, there were able to come within three points with just two minutes left in the game.

The only problem was: they couldn't take care of the ball. I shouldn't really say "they" as much as "Derrick Rose". Rose had 6 turnovers in the game and they were in the most critical points in the game, fans started becoming angry. Noah was able to nab a ball that was going out of bounds and tossed it over to Rose. Rose, for some reason, stepped too far back and caused a backcourt violation and Philadelphia was able to answer with two points the other way. On Chicago's next drive, there was about a minute and a half left, Rose again had the ball and was running toward the baseline when he lost his concentration and stepped out of bounds. It was over from there. Both teams were able to score again keeping the margin a 7 and leaving Evan Turner to dribble out the clock.


"That is certainly a team to fear." Expressed Evan Turner after the game. "They put on a very good showing and I have a lot of respect for that team right now. Our team and their team is making people pay attention to the East and we have been able to successfully give them a good show every time. I look forward to going against that team again."

Wilson Chandler, who started off disappointing answered some questions about his miraculous turnaround scoring 25 points in the second half alone. "Yeah, at first it wasn't the best night for me ya know? But players like Danilo (Gallinari) and E.T. (Evan Turner) clean up my act and don't ever disappoint. These guys looked good tonight, and so did the Bulls. That was a very fun game."

Next, Philadelphia will head to SacTown to take on the Kings. That match-up features two great players in Evan Turner and Tyreke Evans. But who will be the one covering Wilson Chandler consistently? Maybe that question will be answered tomorrow. Before the game though, I will have an exclusive interview with college start Anthony Davis. Thanks for following and as always. Talk to you later.

I completely agree. But would you believe it was an accident? I was pushing for a layup when he just slammed it down on most of the team. Pretty amazing I think.

Also, I will be getting around to the Anthony Davis Interview very shortly. Then after that, I will post the game against the Sacramento Kings, it hasn't been that fast moving because school has started and I have even less time to work on these. I am also playing more games trying to get either Evan Turner or Wilson Chandler into the All-Star game so I that is why I just haven't been simulating every game that exist on the schedule. Bet you can't pick who I'm saying is Davis' favorite is!

Anthony Davis Inteview

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sat Sep 01, 2012 12:10 pm

Dec. 10, 2012

Hello again sports fans. It's your friend that has been all over the draft this year. Marvin Mars, and earlier I was able to get an interview with Anthony Davis. We had to meet in Sacramento when he had an off day as the Philadelphia 76ers will be playing the Kings and I had to be in attendance. Before I get into this interview though I wanted to mention some things I noticed while talking to him. He is a humble person. With every small compliment he got from the Turner Sports office in Sacramento. He blushed and only waved it off as politeness. Now without further adieu. Let's get the report done.

Image
Anthony Davis has looked fantastic at Kentucky this year


Marvin Mars: Hello Anthony, nice to meet you. Its really good to have you here.

Anthony Davis: I'm really glad to be here. You're the first reporter that has actually tried to have a sit down and chat interview.

MM: Yes well, you have been sending waves lately in the NCAA, almost making people forget about Derrick Perkins since he had to leave for Real Madrid. What type of emotions are you obtaining after receiving so much publicity?

AD: Well, it wasn't like I was getting that much publicity anyway, but after Derrick (Perkins) had to play overseas. My popularity has grown and even more people are taking notice.

MM: Yes, and since then it seems like you two are fighting it out for the number one spot. Do you have any type of contact with Perkins?

AD: Yeah, actually. We met in my high school senior year in the nationwide title game. When I left for college, we seemed to become better friends almost immediately after he declared for the Draft.

MM: That sounds great. Who are you hoping to call your name come draft night?

AD: Wow, um... A lot of names actually, since there are teams who want to take a gamble on me and give up some players to obtain me. Names that come to mind are, the Hornets, Lakers, Pistons. They have always been my favorite team. And maybe the 76ers.

MM: That is a nice list. But how do you see yourself fitting with some of those teams? Especially the Lakers who have Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum.

AD: Well they all have capable big men that could mentor me. I don't expect to come in and take a great players starting spot, even if one of them draft me. They might have to give up one of those big men.

MM: Ahh, I see what you mean. About the Sixers though. Are you friends with Shooting Guard Evan Turner?

AD: Uh, yeah um. Can we go on to another question?

MM: Yes, how do you hope to impact the NBA?

AD: I want to be like Russel, Couz, Jordan, Pettit, Moses, Wilt, Kareem, Hakeem. I want to a great. I want to impact it in a way that won't be forgotten at any time.

MM: You seem to have all the right words to say Mr. Davis. A few more if you don't mind. Instead of a Draft combine that was used in previous years, the NBA has created the Rising Stars Challenge. How do you expect to do? If paired up with Derrick Perkins, how do you expect to perform? And if being matched up against him, what would be your plan of attack?

AD: What do I expect? I expect to do the best I can even on the losing side of the scoreboard. If paired with Derrick, that could work out to be a tandem that could make us fight for the first spot even more. We would have to try and out-perform each other while still trying to play as a team. If playing against him. Well that is a hard one, I haven't played him in over a year, and now. Since he is in Europe, it'll be even harder to determine. I know since he will be exposed to the European game. He will become even more dangerous. He's able to play Power Foward two where we would see each other quite a bit of times. He might be able to out muscle me, but not by much. Whoever wins that match-up between us will be the #1 pick on draft night though.

MM: Well thank you Anthony for your time. I hope to speak to you again soon.

AD: No problem. Great to be here.

Image


That was a great interview by Anthony Davis. He can't be just impressing me, he has to be impressing other NBA scouts having so much maturity at such a young age. He hasn't disappointed in play this year and that interview might have just cemented him way before draft night. Though with that, I am Marvin Mars reporting. I will be back soon for the 76ers Kings game shortly.

Nice presentation and all.. But you should go down on your shooting sliders. To shoot 51% in a season and 48% from threes is just non-realistic. That would bore the s**t out of me. Sorry :)

Yeah, your right. it isn't realistic at all, but seeing how close my games are at times, it doesn't make much of a difference. I also miss quite a few shots when I'm wide open. My three slider is on 56 though, everything else is default

VS Kings

Lay the kids down
76ers get expected win over Kings*


AP- Philadelphia, PA| Dec. 10, 2011

Image

This was expected. The much weaker Kings take on the much greater 76ers. The Kings had the better of the Sixers for a short while in the first quarter, but that quickly changed. The strong defense from Philadelphia took over in the second quarter allowing only 16 points the whole time. The game stayed in Philadelphia's control from there.

In the third quarter, the pace was all in Philly's speed. Instead of just trying to get shots in, Evan Turner and Danilo Gallinari had their own highlights coming from the third. Turner was able to trump a plethora of Kings players with an up and under move. Close to the end of the third, Gallinari was able to get a buzzer beating fade out of the post. Just as the clock ticked away. They had the game won, at that point. And it was well known.

In the forth, the pace started getting faster. The Kings got almost a handful of threes from lack of defense from the Sixers who were no longer taking the game seriously. The Kings couldn't chop down the lead under 10 and never got to less than 13. The Kings were able to score thirty points in that one quarter. The 76ers were still able to get 29 points keeping their big lead the whole time.

Something seemed to develop on the court for a short time. Evan Turner and Wilson Chandler couldn't get on the same page when on the floor together. Evan Turner was forced to give up many of his 6 turnovers while Wilson Chandler was on the court. Chandler also struggled when trying to get shots when Turner was on the floor. When one or the other sat down, they both performed well. Not sure if it is a locker room problem, but it doesn't seem like a good sign for either.


Doug Collins voiced his opinion on what happened when Turner and Chandler were on the court together. "I'm not sure if or what happened with those two tonight. They were able to work together well last night against the Bulls. But tonight, it was a completely different story. Wilson struggled to get a steady stroke when Turner was on the floor. Turner was also unable to take care of the ball. He had what? Three in the first quarter? I'll need to talk to them both. But I'll definitely try to solve what ever was the problem."

Tyreke Evans talked to the press for a little while but asked for it to stay out of papers and kept quiet. Since I have freedom of speech, he told reporters. "I hate how we played tonight. This was embarrassing. We've been on the losing side for most of my career here and I want out. This place had done nothing to get better. Really? Greg Oden didn't do anything out there. We need more help, and now."

The 76ers will now play the Washington Wizards at home Friday. The Indiana Pacers away the next. Then invite the TrailBlazers back home next Tuesday. I will be giving the update for the Blazers game next Tuesday.

You should reduce the sliders for cpu as well. Make them even your and cpu. And you should go down 3's to 50 at least. I have fg on 44, 3's on 46, but my sliders are downloaded. And I shoot about FG 47%, 3's 38%.

Vs Trailblazers

76ers take big win on MLK Day
Philadelphia came through again with another blowout


AP- Philadelphia, PA| Jan. 16, 2012

Image

From tip-off this game looked good. The TrailBlazers never gave up going against the Eastern Conference foe. They knew they were over-matched but tried to cover it up anyway possible. With no definite scorer, the ball was spread around enough to key shooters to keep up with Philadelphia's high octane offense. Danilo Gallinari looked exceptional starting off also, quickly getting 8 points in his six minutes of play-time overshadowing Evan Turner. The first quarter was tied up at 25 all and looked like we were in for a good game.

Again in the second quarter was looking like a great game. Everyone looked like they were getting to it. Not letting the mismatch get the best of them, they tried their best to keep the game as close as possible. One of the only players that couldn't get with it was Wilson Chandler, but we'll touch on him later. The game stayed equal with no real leader throughout with the 76ers escaping with a 3 point lead.

In the third quarter though, is where the game looked way different. The 76ers opened the quarter with a 13-0 run that took almost 2 and a half minutes to end by the Blazers. Again, one of the players that couldn't play real well was Wilson Chandler.At about the 6 minute mark. Chandler was going 3-13 and continued to force the issue the whole time. Evan Turner continued to do his usual "I score, you score" routine getting at least 8 points in the quarter and an additional 4 assists to increase his total to 8. But at about the start of the third. He had a clumsy fall and slightly struggled to get up, it was later revealed as a minor twisted ankle and returned to the game as soon as it was diagnosed.
Image

Evan Turner also made Jamal Crawford look foolish all night. The prized off-season grab by the TrailBlazers was able to get 19 points in the game, but would have impacted a lot more if he could stay out of foul trouble. Turner forced him into 5 fouls in the third quarter and Crawford didn't see the floor for the rest of the game. Fans could now see who was going to win at this point late in the third as it wasn't looking close any longer with Philadelphia holding a 16 points lead.

It is pretty much a tape-recording when it comes to Philadelphia in the fourth quarter. Evan Turner poured in another 11 points to get him 33 points for the game and dished out another 5 assists to get his final 13 of the game. Danilo also added another 8 getting 26. At the mid-point of the final quarter, the scoring difference was 15-8 in Philadelphia's advantage. At this points even Sixer fans were leaving knowing who had this game won. Close to the end of the game, the only starter to be in was Wilson Chandler. Who was stillt trying to redeem his shooting percentage. But it was over and everyone knew it. The Philadelphia tacked in yet another win.


"That game could have been incredible." Evan Turner told Reggie Miller in a post-game interview. "It started off like how a team on the West would play like. But it didn't end that way. i enjoyed playing against Jamal Crawford and can't wait to play him again next season."

Philadelphia will now host both Toronto and Oklahoma City in the coming days. I won't be available for the Raptor game but expect a game review for the Thunder game.

Sorry if you guys think that was a long read. I wanted to highlight every quarter but I don't think I'll continue doing it like that, it truthfully bored me writing something so long. I just wanted to push a bit more info out from this game, see you guys on a later date

Lavoy Allen start, Young trade?

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Thu Sep 13, 2012 10:16 am

Report: Lavoy Allen for starting role, 76ers interested in Young again

Doug Collins and Huey Newton have seemed to have mixed thoughts recently. Collins is thinking about starting rookie PF Lavoy Allen in place of center over Spencer Hawes tonight against the Thunder. Newton is interested in re-trading for PF/SF Thaddeus Young. A few days ago, Hawes pulled in 14 rebounds in his season high for against the Raptors so thinking of using a new starter is a little odd. Collins explained to me that he is going to use Hawes off the bench for scoring if necessary since he really isn't known for defense. He is hoping Allen's bigger body will compete with the Thunder's Kendrick Perkins.
Image

On the other end, Philly has had a solid bench but Newton seems to want to reach out to the recently traded Sixer again. Young has expressed how discontent he is not getting as much minutes as he hoped. Right now he is averaging 8.0 ppg. in 13.8 mpg. Newton didn't want to answer many questions about the subject other than, "We have thought about trying to grab him again to have a spark in our bench. We may also try to engage in talks with the Knicks and try to work something out for J.R. Smith."

Since Young is under a 4 year contract, Philadelphia won't be able to obtain him in the offseason anytime soon. And since J.R. Smith is considering free agency anyway, Philadelphia may want to hold out a little longer.

Fastpaced tic tac
OKC and Philly go back and forth in high scoring game


AP- Philadelphia, PA| Jan. 20 2012

Image

These two teams showed how exciting a game can be when you have some of the leagues best scores on the floor. Kevin Durant, Russel Westbrook, Evan Turner, and Wilson Chandler. All top twenty scorers in the league showed the prominence with great baskets all night. You can tell how exciting this game was just by looking at the halftime score. Both teams combined for more than 118 points at the half and continued to score in loads all night.

The player with the most points: Russel Westbrook struggled to get a hold of the ball for most of the game. He ended with 10 turnovers, contributing to the Thunder's 21 turnovers from the night. In his defense though, the 76ers played great defense getting a wild number of 21 steals. Westbrook's turnovers might have been the thing that cost them the game.

A little into the third quarter there was an injury, Lou Williams was fouled on a shot and had to take a seat. It was revealed to be another Twisted Ankle. That is the second one this week the other one was Evan Tuner's so both players have announced they will change the style shoes they wear. Turner wears a custom NikeID pair of KD5s and Williams wears Converse DefCon. They will keep wearing their sponsor's shoes, but just a different type of pair to avoid any new injuries.

Image

Finally this game had to conclude at such a high level of intensity, no one was bored once even at the final buzzer when it was announced another victory for the Philadelphia 76ers.


"That was excitement at it's highest level." Turner exclaimed to Reggie Miller. "I had fun going up against Westbrook and Durant, I want to see both of these guys at the All-Star game so hopefully they work as hard as I am."

Durant responded to Turner's comments. "Yeah that was an excellent game, I know this summer I'm training with this guy. E.T. is a guy that spreads energy and truthfully, its like he was giving me and my team he radiated so much. I hope to see this guy in the All-Star game too, and trust me. I'm going to the All-Star game."

Now Philadelphia will head to Detroit in the second game of their back-to-back and head to Minnesota to play the Timberwolves.

Chapter 5: Surprise surprise

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sun Sep 16, 2012 5:13 am

Image


It is close to noon. Huey Newton busily walks into the Philadelphia 76ers office with papers in his hand. Lauren, the new assistant tells him its from the Memphis Grizzlies. Newton knows what its about. He takes the papers and studies them in his office, he is ready to sign them when there's a knock at the door.

Huey Newton: Who is it?

Instead of answering at the door he hears a reply from his phone intercom.

Lauren: Sir, its Mr. Smith, and Mr. Harris. They would like a word from you, there's someone else but he seems to be with them and he's keeping his distance for now. Should I send them in?

Newton: Go ahead.

The door opens and incomes part of the group of owners of the team. Joshua Harris and Will Smith. They both look like they don't want to be here. Like they lost a bet or something.

Newton: Hello guys. Anything you need?

Harris waves his hand: Nothing too much of a deal Newton we just had to talk with you. What's on those papers?

Newton hands Harris the papers: It is a trade request from the Memphis Grizzlies, they've asked for-

Harris looking displeased cuts off Newton: Danilo Gallinari and Spencer Hawes for Gerald Wallace? You were going to accept this?

Newton: Yes, and why not? Wallace is a great player that is a veteran and can mentor these guys.

Smith: True, but this is the reason why we are here Huey. Because of you're loud moves from a while ago. Over the last few weeks and its been talked about, someone need to be here to argue with you about some of your moves.

Newton looking quite confused: Didn't we discuss this before? The last trade I made was months ago and it has worked out greatly! I'm just trying to shake things up.

Harris red in the face: We don't need to mess up a winning recipe. Its lucky we got here in the time we did, you need to be controlled Newton!

Newton: So what are you gonna do? Put me on probation? Fire me? You guys have to admit that so far, I have been a good GM. So I ask again, what are you gonna do?

Smith: Its not what we're going to, its what we did. No, we're not putting you under any type of probation or try to fire you. We just have someone else your just going to HAVE to discuss everything with involving this team. You two must agree on any trades, signings, and even draft picks. We have also made sure he has this team's best interest in mind.

Newton: So technically I've got an assistant? Oh this sounds great! Wonder how long it'll take for me to break him!

Joshua Harris walks towards the door and calls someone, he reenters the room with a man following him. He's light-skinned, has a labyrinth in his hair and is covered in tattoos. He was dressed in baggy sports shorts and a throwback Philadelphia jersey with the number "2" on it. Huey immediately recognizes him.

Newton: Surprise surprise. I'd thought I would never see you face to face. So your the guy i answer to now huh? How ironic.

???: That's the old me, I came here for business and to make this team better, you want to make outlandish moves. Fine with me. But I'm the one who says no now.

Newton holds out his hand: Well still its nice to meet you. But couldn't you have worn a suit to discuss something like this?

The man shakes Newton's hand: Just because I'm not playing doesn't mean I can't go to practice.

Chandler wins game with last second three
Chandler makes 3 with only 0.6 second left


AP- Minneapolis, MN| Jan. 23, 2012

Image

In a slow-paced, defensive starves game, we see the Philadelphia 76ers get yet another win as the top themselves over the Minnesota Timberwolves. Almost everyone was clicking tonight and that could be attributed to most of the low amount of defense. Turner and Chandler went on another scoring rampage helping their All-Star considerations. Turner was very unsightly when it came to keeping the ball in his hands, having 7 turnovers at the final buzzer but also had 9 assists. Chandler never really went cold, barely scoring in the first quarter then pouring it in during the later quarters.

The biggest adversary for some of the 76ers defense was Ricky Rubio. He only ended the game with 11 points, but most of all of his points came in the third quarter when both teams were fighting for the lead. He pushed their lead to ten twice before going back to his passing self.

In the final quarter, it was left, right, in the crowd as baskets went back and forth. The game got as close to 2 points in the final seconds. The Timberwolves were able to grab the lead with only about 2.2 seconds left in the game followed by Philadelphia timeout. With most of their three point shooters in, the ball was inbounded to Wilson Chandler who hesitated to take the shot, but let go of the ball. There was about three hands in his face since he was close to the inbound area but the ball hit bottom still. Minnesota tried to get the lead back again with only 0.6 seconds left, instead of trying to get something close. Ricky Rubio took the ball about three feet behind the 3-point line and missed. So the game was finally Philadelphia's.


"Too bad that was the end of our series," Evan Turner sighed in the post-game conference. The series was split 1-1 with Minnesota winning 90-80. "My heart was racing from such competition. The Timberwolves certainly showed us what their made of, but thanks to Wilson(Chandler), that wasn't enough."

Soon the 76ers will go against the Charlotte Bobcats in Philadelphia. I won't be in attendance but Ernie Simms will. The Bobcats won the first game of this series but failed to win the second one. The tiebreaker will be this Thursday after the Sixers go up against the Pacers.

POTG: Wilson Chandler & Evan Turner
Image
Chandler: 27 points,6 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block
Turner: 26 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal, 1 block

Even though both players had great games separately,the Player of The Game couldn't go to one player. That would be an injustice as both players were dearly needed to win this game tonight.

Rumor: Iverson working for 76ers?



AP- Jan. 25 2012

Image

Either as a player or coach, it is being rumored that Allen Iverson has some sort of job working as for the Philadelphia 76ers. Iverson is 36 and has tried to return to the NBA, especially to the 76ers for quite some time. He played internationally a year ago before stopping and has continued to try to return to the NBA.

Though this could be positive for Philadelphia. If not signed to be a player, did Huey Newton hire him? Iverson would surely be a "No" man to Newton at just about every opportunity. So this hire may have come from upstairs, where Newton has no control over the matter. It has also been rumored that the owners don't like some of the deals Newton works so it appears the just want someone to be in the office to clear up their anger.

Image
Iverson has not played in the NBA for 3 years, what could be his sudden appearance in the news be?

Alright there are a few things I want to explain right now. My recap will not stay like the one above, I'm extremely tired with all the school work I have to handle lately so I just posted up the recap. Also, I'm moving the difficulty up. The first game with the new sliders were against the TImberwolves, and the game was on pro. With the recent game, it was still on pro, but a complete blowout and very boring. So now I will be playing on All-Star until further notice again.

Surprise Part 2

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:50 am

Huey Newton: My life is Hell

Huey Newton has found himself saying this under his breath in recent days. The same freedom he had just a few months ago, when he pulled that blockbuster with Igoudala. Has just been taken away by one man. Allen Iverson.

Every suggestion Huey made, it was either "No," or "Just wait." He couldn't take it much longer. Every idea had to given to his this underling who seems to have more power and persuasion than Huey.

Today Huey found himself alone with his head in papers trying to relieve the stress he garnered only in about two ours when Lauren rang in again.


Lauren: Excuse me Mr. Newton. Mr. Iverson and Mr. Harris are needing to have a word with you, should I allow them in?

Newton: Oh my... Go ahead Lauren.

He attempted to straighten his suit and brush up his short afro.
The door opened with Iverson leading being followed by Josh Harris on his tail.


Newton: Are you guys in a relationship or somethin'? Since when does the guy that answer to you lead?

Harris: Whatever Newton, enjoying your time with A.I.?

Newton: Can't say it's the encounter I foresaw when I thought about meeting one of my idols.

Harris: Hmph. Well it won't end until you do so... Let's get to talking. You've still tried to work fruitless moves with Allen here?

Iverson: Josh, I thought that wasn't what we were here for. You know you're going to get mad at this meeting.

Harris: No. No. Iverson. You "Thought," I wasn't going into this. Though I am anyway. Now back to my question. Are you still trying to make moves that have no way of being completed?

Newton: Does a Pope pee in the woods?

Both Harris and Iverson are taken aback by this question. They simply stare at Newton like he just went mad.

Iverson: I'm going to say no but it should be a "yes" question, but that's beside the point. We've come to discuss Evan Turner.

Newton: What about Evan Turner?

Iverson: In recent weeks, he's been asking everybody and their mama about Anthony Davis. He's seemed to dropped contact with Turner. Do you know anything about this?

As Newton is opening his mouth, Lauren rings again.

Lauren: Sir, sorry to interrupt. But Evan Turner is asking to see you right now. Should I allow him in?

Harris: Go ahead Lauren. We invited him with us.

Newton looks at Harris sideways as Evan walks in still in his practice uniform walks in and rushes into a seat in front of Newton. Then looks up and shakes hands with Iverson and Harris to try and escape behind him.

Newton: Too late Evan go ahead and snake back up.

Iverson: You never answered my question Huey, do you have something to do with Anthony Davis' sudden halt of communication?

Newton: Why does this have to do with anything?

Evan Turner: Well sir, he's one of my best friends and its kinda weird that he just stopped you know? I mean we're homeboys, but since around mid-December he has been silent to me. I've been to some of his games to try and holla' at him. But I get a cold shoulder. It's really weird and it has been effecting my play.

Newton: Haha E.T. you just had an amazing game against the Bobcats, what are you talking about?

Iverson: Look, Newton, just answer the question. Understand?

Newton: Alright, truthfully. In all honesty. Off the top of my head. With no lie.

Harris: Oh my God I can't stand you. ANSWER. THE. QUES. STION.

Newton in the middle of a laugh: Okay, okay. No I have nothing to do with Anthony's silence.

Harris: Then why don't I believe you?

Newton: Because, you don't like me.

Turner: Thank you sir, I'm going to try his family now.

Iverson: Now that isn't necessary Evan. I'll talk to him myself

Newton tries to hide some of his surprise as Harris was the only one with his eyes on him.

Harris with a wide smile: Let's do that A.I. and lets discuss your contract. I have a feeling that you might be in need of a promotion soon. We'll see if Newton has illegally contacted a College recruit.

Iverson: Hmm..? Oh yes sir. Let's go E. Gotta get back to practice.

Turner: We still on with our one-on-one?

Iverson: Hell yeah. Come on

They all leave Huey alone with a slightly nagged expression on his face.

Newton: Oh crap...

Wallace: "Trade me"
Rockets, Pistons, Hornets, and 76ers interested in Gerald Wallace


AP- Jan. 28, 2012|New York, New York

In a move that proved dastardly for both sides, Gerald Wallace of the Memphis Grizzlies is demanding a trade. Wallace was only acquired by the Grizzlies on December 22 of last year. Wallace was traded for point guard Michael Conley and center Hamed Haddadi. His play time has dramatically lessened.

Image

Wallace is leaned on as a sixth man, something he's never had to do. He was a star in Charlotte and a starter in Portland so telling him to come off the bench is something he didn't take to kindly to and is demanding a trade from Memphis. So far he is averaging about 8.6 ppg and less than 1 steal a game in 23.3 mpg. His stats have suffered since being traded there but other teams who want to make him a starter are interested in him.

The Rockets have been using Chandler Parsons as their starter for most of this season and he averages around 9.1 ppg in 29.8 mpg. If the Rockets can pull in Wallace it would surely help their scoring. The Pistons are trying to find someone to replace Tayshaun Prince who hasn't played well in recent years but has been playing his best this season shooting 49.1% shooting on 14.7 ppg in 31.1 mpg. Wallace and Prince will most likely have to be swapped if the Pistons win their race. The Hornets are still relying on Trevor Ariza to hold on to their small foward position this year as he has averaged only 5.6 ppg on 29.4% shooting from the field and 28% shooting from three in 28.5 mpg. The Hornets are desperately in need of Wallace's talent as Ariza hasn't been performing as well as the team wished he would this year.

The Philadelphia 76ers have also have put themselves in this rumor mill as they have also shown interest in Wallace. Wilson Chandler has performed well at the small forward position and Danilo Gallinari doesn't ever seem to be out of position when playing power forward so it seems like Wallace would end up asking for a trade anyway or not resigning after this season.

The Grizzlies have not spoken on the matter of Wallace so far but are most likely looking at any offers from the before mentioned teams in some type of trade.

Wire to Wire finish
Philadelphia flatout dismantles Brooklyn


AP-Philadelphia, PA| Jan. 30, 2012

Image

The Philadelphia 76ers were able to get another convincing victory over the lowly Brooklyn Nets tonight. The 76ers were pretty much able to grab this game by the throat early during the first quarter. Philadelphia was able to come out fast and kept the momentum they captured by hitting a buzzer beater at the end of the quarter to give them thirty points. In the second quarter it was more of the same. Though both teams defense wasn't good. The Sixers offense was able to capitalize more getting 59 points before the half.

Evan Turner was putting on yet another outstanding performance getting 10 assists while in the third quarter with some of the other main scorers getting breathes. At the end of the game he got one more assist and 33 points. Wilson Chandler was also a facilitator getting enough connections for 7 assists of his own and also nabbing a steal in part of the victory. Danilo Gallinari had 16 points and Louis Williams had 18.

The game got worse early for Brooklyn as DeShawn Stevenson went down holding his back after missing a three. It was later revealed that he hurt his back and was diagnosed with a lower back strain. In the early portion of the third quarter. the Sixers got another taste of the bitterness of an injury as Gary Jackson, Philadelphia's backup point guard got up slowly holding his shoulder. Kevin Johnson, Philadelphia's trainer, told reporters that Jackson suffered a bruised sternum. The 76ers will be without their only backup PG for a little while and might have to do something to right it.

Thanks for following the 76ers as they continue their phenomenal season. The monthly recap should be up soon and the mock draft shall also be up soon.

Thanks a lot man! Yeah, those two are just great for this team, it is extremely rare that I can't go a few games without dominating with one or the other. And my photos, gotta love playin on PC without the replay thing in your way!


Thierry • wrote:This is looking neat (Y) Keep it up man!


Glad to hear that you like it!


I'm glad to hear comments from some of the people that inspired me to start writing this. I will have my monthly recap, mock draft, and game against the Clippers up soon! Also, before the game against the Clippers, I will have to find some type of replacement for Gary Jackson, he's hurt and I need another backup point guard. So, I might end up trading Jodie Meeks, or Nikola Vucevic, or possibly both because I don't use either that often. And for those still watching, thanks for viewing!

January Recap

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sun Oct 14, 2012 1:15 am

Image


Feb. 1, 2012

Image


The Philadelphia 76ers continue their quest for a NBA title as another month rolls by. They went 14-3 this month losing to the lesser Pacers and Wizards. It doesn't seem like it is worth much concern because they have shown flat out dominance against other teams like the rival Bobcats and the Brooklyn Nets.

All-Star votes still seem to go the Sixers way as Evan Turner is forth in guard department for the East. He currently has 1,056,183 votes and if he can keep his play up for the next view games. We may be looking at a second year All-Star. Something that doesn't happen much either. Wilson Chandler is also forth in the forward position, but holds more votes than Turner. He has 1,143,419 votes on his name. Two All-stars from one team doesn't happen that much either so let's hope with all our might, that he gets into that game.

In the award races. Evan Turner lead the MVP race with Wilscon Chandler right on his tail. Who knew that these two would even be on a MVP ballot, let alone leading? Evan Turner is also in the top runner for the Most Improved player of the year, which makes a lot of sense. When you struggle as a rookie your first year and play better the LeBron or Kobe the next, you deserve that award.

There is one question though, what will the Sixers do about the lack of a backup point guard? Gary Jackson is out at least two weeks and he was the only backup. So GM Huey Newton will finally be able to finalize a trade to find a replacement. Who do you thinks is going to be moved, and for who?

Mock Draft Feb

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sun Oct 14, 2012 2:16 am

Feb. 1, 2012

Hello again sports fans! Its Marvin Mars again today back with a NBA Lottery Mock Draft for the month of February. There hasn't been that much changing in the shape of the draft in the last few months, but there's still going to be a recap. And again, here is my key:

-The numbers in parentheses means that is where the player was expected to go last month.
- With player that have "-" inside parentheses means that their value hasn't changed any.
-^ Means they have rose to this list and are new favorites to make it into the lottery.
- The name in the "Team" section indicates the team that player competes on.

And here is the list.
Image


One of the biggest move ups were Riley Gisseman who has broken out in the NCAA as the year winds down. Now the players that have moved out of the potential lottery:
Tomas Satornasky
Bradly Beal


Beal wasn't expected to go that high only dropping back one spot away from being inside of the lottery. Satoransky however, was expected to go top ten when dominating in the Czech Republic at the start of the year, but has slowed way down and is expected to go late teens, early twenties.

Now the players that have shot into the potential lottery:
Riley Gisseman
Marquis Teague


Riley Gisseman really broke out recently, he has been looking great recently getting himself into the top ten. Any team willing to grab him early should do it if they want this scoring guard. Teague has seen himself go in and out of the lottery complimenting his teamates Kidd-Gilchrist and Davis. He hasn't really impressed but might see himself rising up still

Jeremy Lamb adds weight


In the beginning of the college season, Lamb only weighed about 185 pounds. Since he is playing the 2-guard, he added weight. He now weighs in at 206 pounds. The extra wight also seems to be muscle, not fat. And it has shown helping him stay at the top of the NCAA.

Anthony Davis still having trouble getting 2


He is looking great, but is having trouble to look better than the others. Perry Jones is looking consistent again, and Andre Drummond is leading the NCAA in both rebounds and blocks. He simply can't get a break over these two to be considered the top two player in the Nation.

Harrison Barnes doesn't look like a fluke

After deciding to stay a second year playing in North Carolina, experts were saying he would look a lot worse. So far he's proving them wrong. He has scored the most points this season, though not leading in scoring. So far he averages about 20.9 points a game and is looking consistent as ever. He is definitely worth a top 5 pick this year.

Thanks for viewing this months lottery recap. Stay tuned to Thursday as the Clippers take on the 76ers.

Yeah, good idea to do the league leaders, I'll be doing that today before I play this game

I was scouting this guy as soon as he declared for the draft. He is actually expected to be taken earlier than his stock suggests.


All righty people one more thing before I go. Since I play high paced , but want to slow it down now. I will be raising my minutes to 10. Because I'm going to be calling more plays

Carlos Arroyo Signing

Report: Philadelphia 76ers sign PG Carlos Arroyo


Feb. 3, 2012

Image




Instead of going out into the trade market as expected. Huey Newton instead signed Carlos Arroyo as the Philadelphia 76ers backup point guard. He was signed for the rest of the season on a salary of $663K. Gary Jackson went down with a bruised sternum against the Brooklyn Nets and will be out for the next few weeks, he will be replaced with Arroyo for the time being. Arroyo might even be better than Jackson so he could start taking a bulk of the minutes Jackson once withheld.

Carlos Arroyo has not been able to find a team willing to take him since last year after being waved by the Miami Heat, then signed, but not resigned by the Boston Celtics. This may be his chance to keep steady ground again.Arroyo is expected to make his official debut for the 76ers tonight against the Clippers

The second unit

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sat Oct 20, 2012 2:30 pm

Second Unit takeover
Philadelphia's bench helped propel them to another win tonight


AP- Feb. 3, 2012| Philadelphia, PA

Image

In another game ending in blowout fashion, the Philadelphia 76ers find themselves on the winning side again with victory over the Los Angelas Clippers. It started off as the same old, really competitive game that neither team could grasp the lead for very long. But this time, the lead grew quicker for Philadelphia as their bench players did great tonight. The bench squad was able to rack in 34 points together with Carlos Arroyo leading them all with 12 points, 5 assists. Talk about a debut.

Image
Arroyo looked great out there


As the game wore on, defense was scarce by Los Angelas, it appeared that many of their players were starting to get tired from all the Philadelphia fast breaks. The Sixers ended the game with 18 fastbreak points. One of the only bright sides tonight for the Clippers came from Caron Butler as he poured in 25 while barely missing a shot. But still the third quarter was all Philadelphia, especially for Chandler.

Chandler started the third quarter with 11 points, not really playing bad, but didn't see the ball in his hands that often for most of the night. But Chandler led his team to a long run that would give him 19 points before the end of the third. To top off the third, Lou Williams dribbled up on Chris Paul and hit a buzzer beating three giving he 76ers an 11 point lead. In the third quarter, there was also a minor injury on Philly star Evan Turner. Turner was hit hard by power forward Blake Griffin and landed on his knee. It was only a sore knee that had previously been giving him trouble, but wasn't much, though he played a lot less after that.

Image
Turner appeared severely hurt


In the forth was when the bench players really started to impress. Suppressing the Clippers offense and embarrassing their D. They went on another run that put this game away.

Carlos Arroyo's questions poured in early after his first game as a Sixer. "I like what this team is doing right now to win, if we keep on blowing out teams like this every night, who's going to stop us in the playoffs? We're truly a complete team and no one can argue about that. I hope to have future performances as good as this one often."

Evan Turner was also bombarded with questions regarding his All-Star candidacy. "I'm exciting, I hope the folks at home are texting 'E.T.' on their phones to the NBA voting thing, I hope to be a household name a take this team to a title with games like this."

The Philadelphia 76ers will now travel to Atlanta to play the Hawks then come back home Tuesday to bring in the Los Angelas Lakers. Two LAs in two weeks. Let's go Sixers!

The whole Sixers squad is returning from their game against the Atlanta Hawks after just recently departing the plane choosing to stay in Atlanta to practice. Everyone is waiting by each other at their gate, Newton isn't sure why Turner is standing so close, but doesn't ask, when someone greets him, Newton can't tell who but he looks familiar. He and the team walks away with Turner talking. Newton doesn't make much sense of it but ignores it as he is greeted by head owner Joshua Harris and Newton's "beloved" assistant, Allen Iverson.

Joshua Harris: Well we looked in to the Davis thing while you were in Atlanta and we came out with nothing about you tampering with a prospect.

Huey Newton: Of course you wouldn't, do you think I'd throw away a good job over some kid?

Allen Iverson: Well... you have been kind've sporadic and we just thought it was in the best interest to investigate.

Newton: Oh, look at A.I. being all neutral and all.

Iverson: What's your beef with me Huey?

Newton: Well I have my power taken away by a washed up player and an owner who can't get his head out of his ass, and you seem to think I need protecting. I am grown Iverson.

Harris: Now hey-

Iverson: We are co-workers, I will not let you hang out to dry, but I do think I demand some type of respect.

Newton nods: Yes, I agree. I have acted a bit childlike. Now, let's go see what the players are doing.

--------------------------------------------------------------


Evan Turner has been feeling good. He's on a first name basis with Anthony again. Still, not sure why he got the cold shoulder in the first place, but that isn't important now. The team is coming off a blowout against the Hawks and have the Lakers coming next. When Evan got off of his plane, he and his teammates got a visit from Kobe Bryant. Seems like he got there earlier than the rest of his team but stuck around for Turner. Bryant walked away with Turner hoping to get a quiet conversation with him, but the team followed so he kept his tone low.

Evan Turner: Yo Kobe, what's up?

Kobe Bryant: Not much just here to talk to you about some things.

Turner: Like what?

Bryant: I want you to demand a trade to L.A.

Turner: What did you just say?

Some of the players here Turner's outburst and get closer to hear the conversation.

Bryant: You heard me, do it. And we might go easy on you.

Turner: Look man, it looks like you're still mad about the time I one-uped you-

Bryant: You didn't one-up anyone boy, you want a challenge? Fine. But you aren't beating us tonight. You can believe that. We won't be taken off-guard by some lower fair-weather gym.

Turner: Oh you must be mistaken. Do you know what we say every time we take L.A.? BEAT LA! BEAT LA! BEAT LA!

The team joins Turner as Bryant starts to leave and hops in his limo. The whole team continues to yell until they can no longer see his ride.

Old School Blowout
Lakers are decimated in old school night


AP- Feb. 6, 2012| Philadelphia, PA

Image

What was thought to be a cheerful night in which fans and players reflected on players of the past-time, instead of being entertained, we were bored out of our minds.

The game didn't seem to stay close for L.A. A lack of consistency made them fall behind early and never came back into the game. The Lakers weren't able to make themselves any better as the game wore on missing shot after shot. A total surprise was how Kobe Bryant was shooting. He ended the game with 21 points, that is very good. But he also only made 11 of his 21 shots. That is far from good. He didn't show up at all costing him and his team the game.

On Philadelphia's side, they were the definition of consistent. They had two players with double doubles, four out of five starters with double digit scoring, and their man scorer shot of 50% of their field goals. Wilson Chandler looked simply impressive again, nabbing 10 boards while still able to see his shots fly in the basket for most of the game ending with 21. Lou Williams also ended with 16 points and 2 steals. Williams helped energize his team early, stealing the ball from Steve Blake early and taking it home for a nice layup.

The crowd did stay in the arena the whole time though, by the time was close to ending it was still packed in Wells Fargo Center with fans chanting "Beat LA!" Philadelphia sure did.

"I really wished this wasn't our final game this year." Evan Turner told Reggie Miller in his post-game interview. "I wouldn't mind hearing 'BEAT LA!' more often. That was fun while it lasted but, I guess we'll see you next year Lakers.

That will be all tonight as the Sixers will host the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday and then host the Boston Celtics Friday. See you later sports fans!

Star falls, still pull out win
Sixers beat Celtics and Lakers in same week


AP- Feb. 10, 2012| Philadelphia, PA

Image

First, the Philadelphia took out both the Boston Celtics, AND the Los Angeles Lakers. This has to take everyone by surprise.

The Philadelphia 76ers were able to slip out from Boston's grasp tonight in a five point margin win. This game barely was that thrilling, neither team took care of the ball that much. But both mostly did well scoring. Wilson Chandler and Paul Pierce looked like players deserving to make it to the All-Star game this month both pulling in 26 and 25 respectively. These guys define scorers.

In the second quarter, the injury bug bit again for Philadelphia. Evan Turner took a nasty fall after being hit by Rajon Rondo while coming down from a shot. The play wasn't ruled a foul, but again, Turner was hurt once more. This isn't looking good for Turner, two weeks until the All-Star game and he is hurt again. This is the only injury that will keep him out though, it is a minor lower back strain. He is expected to come back before taking on the Heat, but will have to sit out tomorrow against the Cavs'.
Image


The final quarter did have a little bit of excitement, but it was strange. The 76ers held an eight point lead with about a minute to go, but left many Celtics open from three. Only one was buried, by Paul Pierce. Though this is a bad choice nonetheless. Maybe Doug Collins was resting the players for the back-to-back against Cleveland. That certainly isn't the way to do it though.

With an angered expression on his face, Evan Turner was fuming when talking to Reggie Miller back on the sideline. "That was a dirty hit, he couldn't get back on defense in time and he pushed me. [referring to Rondo] I can't wait to see these guys again and blow them out. That was plain unnecessary."

"When I saw E.T. (Evan Turner) go down, I thought, 'its all up to me now.' I needed to step up and so did the rest of the team, we did respond well and it translated into a win for us tonight." Wilson Chandler discussed in his post-game speech. "I can't wait to see them again though, Pierce was one hell of a matchup."

Today, Philadelphia walks out with another win, they will head to Cleveland tomorrow to take on Cleveland, then they host Miami back at home.

Competitive game sees Philadelphia losing



AP- Feb. 13, 2012| Philadelphia, PA


Image

In a very close game, we see the Philadelphia 76ers lose for the first time in a few weeks.

This game looks close on the box score but the Heat won from great shooting, lockdown defense, and little defense played by the Sixers. There were plenty of scoring runs putting one or the other team ahead. There was more than eleven lead changes and the largest margin was 11 points. Miami was able to capitalize on a lot more opportunities than Philly and that is why we see them win tonight.

"What did I tell you?" Dwayne Wade boasted at the post-game conference. "We're too tough for these guys, they weren't playing like a team and we were able to pull that one out. I will admit. it was close, but there wasn't a doubt in my mind that we would lose."

After tonight the Bobcats will take on the defending champion Dallas Mavericks then take on the Grizzlies on the road and have a rematch in Houston, where we saw Houston win and Iguodala's last game as a Sixer right before the trade deadline. Tune in later. These next few games should be good.

Calls for Turner

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sun Nov 04, 2012 2:25 am

Report: Teams calling in for Turner

Image


Feb. 15, 2012

Faxed papers from Bucks general manager John Hammond to the Philadelphia 76ers were leaked out to public asking about up-and-coming star Evan Turner. The papers are offering guard Monta Ellis and Ekpe Udoh for the MVP candidate. Ellis wasn't expected to be traded away from the Bucks after recently being acquired this offseason from Golden State. He hasn't played nearly as well as Turner so that is maybe that is why they through in Ekpe Udoh as collateral. O.J. Mayo was also rumored to be offered for Turner, but no sources have confirmed it is true. And it has also been rumored that before the Laker game a week ago, Kobe Bryant asked Turner to demand a trade to L.A. It looks like everyone wants a piece.

All-Star Teams Announced!

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sat Nov 10, 2012 1:00 pm

Image

Wade and Kobe highlight East and West All-Star Teams

Image


Feb. 16, 2012

Finally! The East and West All-star teams have been announced to the public. All the players have worked hard for this achievement of playing with the best and are able to do it in only two weeks!

Again, here are the teams
Image


As we can see, head vote man Dwayne Wade tops of the East as well as Kobe. Wade in his eighth appearance and Kobe in his fourteenth. Some of the surprise players are Antawn Jamison from the Cleveland Cavaliers and Ramon Sessions from the LA Lakers simply because they weren't voted much by the fans, but voted in by coaches. Andre Iguodala has also topped his first All-Star appearance by also getting in the starting lineup, though Denver is currently 23-30.

Evan Turner and Wilson Chandler have also grabbed a spot as reserves. Turner, who has had a great breakout season, couldn't nab enough votes to get him a starting role because he just wasn't that popular in the beginning of the league but has became a sensation. Chandler, Turner's partner in crime, also sees himself in after carrying a scoring load most of the season with Philadelphia.

Carmelo Anthony also stole the starting spot from LeBron by nearly a landslide. Stephen Jackson, the player that believes he is better than Kobe also got his first spot in the all-star game, even though it was late in his career along with Josh Smith. Who has earned a starting position.

This year's All-star game features some of the best scorers from around the league and looks to be simply an amazing game. Even though there are surprises, like Chris Paul not starting, it is truly a pleasant surprise and most fans wouldn't have it any other way!

Chapter 7: Acquaintance

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sat Nov 10, 2012 2:12 pm

Image


It was Saturday and the team was still celebrating after Evan Turner's and Wilson Chandler's All-Star announcement on Thursday. The air was still buzzing by the time Huey Newton and Evan Turner, along with Allen Iverson, returned to Wells Fargo Center. Though it appeared Newton was concerned about something.

Allen Iverson: Yo E.T.! Did you really have to buy the bar out tonight?

Evan Turner: Bes believe man! We still had ladies crawlin' over us tonight though.

Iverson: Yeah, I hear you. Aye Huey? Somethin up?

Newton hadn't realized his facial expression hardened with each passing moment, jumped when he heard his name.

Huey Newton: Oh! Yeah, I'm fine. Still waiting to hear about that paper work.

Iverson: Oh year, we sent something about a day ago, they say it should go through to the league office tonight.

Turner: Why, what happened?

Newton: I finally got a "go."

Turner: That means what exactly?

Newton was close to answering when a kid with a flat top walked by looking clearly confused. They left the office door open so they watched the kid go from room to room poking his head in. He looked like he was close to giving up when he spotted Evan.

???: Aye Evan, what's up man? Haven't seen you since last week. Look man, I was looking for some... Newton? I think his name was, can you help me find him?

Newton: Right here kid, pleased to make the acquaintance. Where's the other guy?

N.C.: Well you can call me N.C. But he should be here tomorrow, he wanted to say his goodbyes before leaving the city.

Newton: All right, we can head out now.

Everyone exits out the door leaving Newton behind. His mind is in the clouds for a second when his phone rings. Newton is puzzled as to why anyone would be calling him at this hour, but he picked the phone up anyway.

Newton: Hello?

???: Oh good, you answered, some bench players are playing some blacktop ball downtown. I was wondering if you would come down and watch sir.

Newton: You really need that much help for pointers Nikola?

Vucevic: Well yeah. Some other GMs are coming out here, you should too.

Newton: All right, I'll be there.

Newton saw this as a way to find another potential trade but he still had to take Iverson with him, just in case.
They arrived to the court at close to the start of the game. Newton looked dreadfully out of place, it was dark outside and he was in downtown with a suit on. Everyone else was wearing basketball clothes so Newton couldn't tell who was a general manager so he just took a seat and watched until he was approached.


???: Vucevic. You guys interested in giving him up?

Huey hadn't realized who he was talking to until he looked up, the same man that agreed on the Iguodala trade, Masai Ujiri. The caramel skinned man looked like he just struck gold watching Vucevic play, who was out muscling JaVale McGee at the moment. Iverson spoke up before Newton realized what was going on?

Iverson: What are you asking, and what are you willing to give for him?

Masai Ujiri: The very player he's out playing at the moment, of course.

Newton wasn't sure why he wanted to give up McGee so suddenly, he was well aware of how good this kid is, he just lacks discipline, something Dough Collins certainly knows how to enforce. Them he realized he just struck gold.

Newton: I'm not sure, Nikola seems to show good range, something McGee lacks.

Ujiri: Oh, don't worry about that, all you need him to do is swat down balls anyway don't you?

Newton: True, but we will need a little bit more than just a fly swatter.

Ujiri: What exactly?

Newton: Just ------

Newton's word were cut off but it appeared that Ujiri understood him completely. They both stood in front of each other and shook hands, then Iverson shook hands with the Nuggets' GM. Newton felt a little bit more powerful in that transaction. Two in one day, both looking to turn out great, how could this go badly?
