BEST OF LIBERTY BALLERS:
Sixers Trade Assets Part Two: Spencer Hawes - Michael Levin
Some lucky team is about to become much more American.
76ers' Sunday Morning Shootaround: Breakin' 2-Electric Boogaloo - Roy Burton
Click just to see the picture of Levin in raspberry skinny jeans. Must be something about Chasing Mimi that encourages people who talk about it to wear loudly colored skinny jeans
What the Rudy Gay Trade Means for the Sixers - Michael Levin
Levin provides analysis while ignoring the true impact of the trade on the Sixers: Spencer Hawes now hates Rudy Gay.
Clippers 94, Sixers 83: Love in a Dunkless Place - Michael Baumann
Normally I reserve this space for features with a bit more of a shelf life than a game recap, but Baumann spent 822 words talking about a single missed dunk and it is as beautiful as you could imagine.
Missing In Action: Philadelphia 76ers Center Daniel Orton - Jake Fischer
Missing you, Crystal Blue Potential.
The "In Lieu of Jrue" NBA Draft Prospect Watch, Part Five: The Andrew Wiggins Edition - Rich Hofmann
Rich discusses Andrew Wiggins and his perceived slow start with Kansas. Another great read in a fantastic series.
Nick Young misses a 360 layup: The full breakdown - SB Nation
Swag so hard you miss you do a 360 layup sending the ball over the board resulting in a Mike Prada picture illustration of where it all went wrong.
Andrew Bynum Finds the Joy Again - Grantland
Even if you hate Bynum with the passion of a thousand suns, netw3rk has a really awesome GIF in here as well.
Profile Paroxysm: The Newly-Efficient Evan Turner - Hardwood Paroxysm
Evan Turner has stopped learning from a head coach who believes 16-23 feet from the hoop is the NBA's Kaaba.
Film review: The problems and promise of Tony Wroten - Philly.com
Continuing his fantastic series at Philly.com breaking down film, Rich wrote this week's column with stars in mind.
Sixers won't abandon risky, up-tempo offense - CSN Philly
It is times like this I am disappointed the Sixers did not bring back Nick Young. Swaggy and the 2013-14 Sixers would have been something special.
The Kwame Brown news feature will be retired until Kwame finds a new basketball home. But the Kwame photo and caption at the start of each Casual Friday shall remain forever.
REMINDER - RULES OF THE THREAD: As long as you keep it clean (no cursing and please remember to wear clean underwear while threading) and respectful, it's fair game. It's your thread - use it as you see fit.
Now, discuss! Happy Friday!
