BEST OF LIBERTY BALLERS:
Sixers Trade Assets Part One: Thaddeus Young - Michael Levin
Saying goodbye to Thad would be awkwardly sad.
76ers' Sunday Morning Shootaround: My December - Roy Burton
As if they were not apparentalready, every 2016 Republican presidential will be seeking the glowing endorsement of Spencer Hawes. This could change the course of American history forever.
What Can Kendall Marshall Do For The Sixers? - Michael Levin
It is only a matter of time before Levin requests a Kendall Marshall autograph by mailing him an 8X11 Marshall photo stuck to another piece of paper.
The "In Lieu of Jrue" NBA Draft Prospect Watch, Part Cuatro - Rich Hofmann
The one where Liberty Ballers becomes a Pelicans and international basketball blog. We're versatile like that.
Dreadful Armada: Injuries and Incentives to Lose for New Orleans - Sean O'Connor
And to think Sean wrote this before tonight's Knicks-Nets game.
Youngbloods: NBA Rookie Power Rankings for 12/5/2013 - Sonics Rising
Trey Burke cracking #3 on this list is one of Michigan's great sporting achievements of the last decade.
What the Aaron Gordon vs. Jabari Parker battle showed us - SBNation.com
Rich may have taken the week off from writing about the top-end talent in the 2014 draft to focus on international prospects, but in lieu of Rich (see what I did there?), Jonathan Tjarks analyzes Gordon vs. Parker.
The NBA's Atlantic Division Is (So Far) The Worst Division Of All Time - Deadspin
Of all time. In all North American sports. Even worse than the 2009-10 Atlantic, and whatever it was the NFC West decided to present to America in 2008. May I reminder that this is the division we follow. I need a drink.
Forget the playoffs: Would any of these NBA teams even qualify for a bowl? - FoxSports.com
The Philadelphia 76ers are projected to the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl. Speaking of which, looking for a fun holiday game? Find a friend or family member you wish to gross out, read them menu items, and have them guess whether or not it is a real menu option at Beef 'O' Brady's! Family fun for everyone!
Film Review: Pet plays for Turner, Hawes and Anderson - Philly.com
Rich Hofmann continues his fantastic series at Philly.com breaking down film, this week focusing on some of Brett Brown's pet plays.
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 flush if you eat at Beef 'O' Brady's while threading) and respectful, it's fair game. It's your thread - use it as you see fit.
Now, discuss! Happy Friday!
