Sixers Fantasy Camp: We’re All Going to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine
This post was originally about All-Star Weekend. I was gonna mention Jrue Holiday, the Skills Challenge, the Celebrity All-Star Game and who is ELITE (Arne Duncan IS elite), and how I'm still bitter about the Nate Robinson/Andre Iguodala dunk contest travesty. We would reminisce. I would name drop Harold Miner - naturally. But this post became so much more. It morphed into something bigger than both you and I. I let my imagination run wild. I was like Jessie Spano after a few caffeine pills. I'm so excited. I'm so excited. I'm so, so scared.
Sticking up for 76ers management
Members of the media and fans alike are turning against 76ers management with the way the Bynum trade, and season, has unfolded. This is my support for the moves they have made to bring us to this point.
Doug Collins Can't Be Part of the Sixers Future
Sixers coach Doug Collins isn't the Sixers only problem, but is a significant part and not part of the solution moving forward.

The Last Straw? A DNP-CD for Arnett Moultrie, A WTF for Coach Collins - The 700 Level
Definitely read this one. It goes really well with my "Doug Collins Can't Be In The Sixers Future Plans" post.
Sixers headed to Europe in October? - phillyBurbs.com
The 76ers may be headed to Europe in the fall. The Web site solobasket.com is reporting (in Spanish) that the Sixers are scheduled to participate in the 2013 NBA Europe Live Tour next October.
Charles Barkley's advice was never more valid - philly.com
IN HONOR OF his 50th birthday, which was Wednesday, we honor Charles Barkley for saying, "I'm not a role model . . . Just because I dunk a basketball doesn't mean I should raise your kids."
REMINDER - RULES OF THE THREAD: As long as you keep it clean (no cursing and please remember to bathe before threading) and avoid touchy subjects like religion/politics/etc, it's fair game. It's your thread - use it as you see fit.
Now, discuss! Happy Friday!
