Gimme the Links, Gimme the Links

My man jsams left a tec and nine at my crib.  Turned himself in, he had to do a bid.  A one-to-three, he be home the end 2-0-1-3.  I'm ready to get this paper, Mike B, you wit me?

Now to get myself off of this Biggie tangent, we got two "games" left until the offseason and the end of the Eddie Jordan era.  The Sixers truly hindered their chances at #missionWTF on Friday with an extremely insignificant win (talking about the actual win - not what it did to the draft chances - because then it's more significant than Franklin is to Gob).  Now it's time to hope and pray that these next two games come according to play.  The home finale is tonight against D-Wade and Joel Anthony.  Big time need for a loss as the Sixers are just one game outside of the 9 slot (welcome Hassan Whiteside/Cole Aldrich!).

While you wait on the edge of your seat for the game to start tonight, check out the links for Monday.

Iguodala #5 Most Underappreciated Athlete in Philly Sports History

He made his mark by playing tough defense, hitting the boards and displaying prudence in shot selection. And, despite some of the game's most spectacular dunks and athleticism, his overall skills and contributions unfortunately tend to get overlooked.

Fan Appreciation Night at Wachovia Center; Get Some Cool Free Stuff

The reward for sticking it out? Possibly an Apple iPad, PlayStation 3 or high-def TV.

...the team will also be giving away a chance to see a pre-Draft workout as the Sixers try out possible future stars this summer. Plus, the Sixers will be handing fans game-worn jerseys and shoes from the team.

Of course the biggest gift the Sixers will give fans is the merciful end to this terrible season.

A Possible Return of Coach Brown

...there are strong indications that Jordan won’t stand in Brown’s way if he wants to seek another job with complete control over basketball operations. Though some speculation has centered on Brown going to the Clippers, that’s not happening, sources say. The most likely scenario is the Sixers due to Brown’s family ties with the city.

The thinking is that Brown would only return if he was given both jobs: coach and GM. That puts an even bolder question mark next to Stefanski's name. 

SVG to Play Starters on Wednesday

...emphasizing that the Magic are still in a battle for potential home court advantage if they meet the Lakers in the NBA Finals.

Sixer fans should be applauding Van Gundy's decision to play all his starters in their normal capacities on Wednesday. In fact, Sixer fans should be hoping that Philly rolls out a starting lineup of Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Jason Kapono, Marreese Speights, and Jason Smith to guarantee the loss. (Although, given the way the season's gone, the Sixers' normal starting five should lose pretty convincingly themselves.)

Fagan on Performance of Entire Roster

Holiday has been the break in this cloud-filled season.

...they've found their point guard of the future. 

Consider Speights the anti-Holiday of the team. No player on this roster has gone from promising to a liability faster than Speights. Coming out of college, Speights carried the knock that he was lazy.

If anyone has been handcuffed by Jordan's offense, it's been Young. He went from one of the NBA's top sophomores to needing to prove himself all over again.

EJ Denies Rutgers Rumors

"I haven't expressed any interest," Jordan said Saturday night. "I haven't talked to anybody about the Rutgers job."

"I couldn't get Internet in my room, so . . . I haven't talked about it. I haven't even thought about it."

Former 76er Derrick Coleman $5 Million in Debt

Coleman has filed for bankruptcy and owes creditors $4.7 million, most of which he lost in failed attempts to stimulate Detroit's struggling local economy.

Coleman made more than $87 million during his 15 year career with the Nets, 76ers, Hornets, and Pistons. But now he has only about $1 million in assets, including a 1997 Bentley convertible, five fur coats, and $3,000 in jewelry. Not exactly appreciating assets.
