So we dug deep into the archives...and came up with this. You're welcome. #tbt https://t.co/lBgImyE3u1— Philadelphia 76ers (@Sixers) May 21, 2015
It's been eight days since the Allen Iverson documentary debuted on Showtime, and the past week has been filled with (mostly) fond memories of the former superstar. Along those lines, the Sixers dug into the crates and posted this video filled with clips from years gone by. Any day is a great day to watch Marcus Camby get dunked on.

A.I. - the originator of bringing kids to press conferences. Also the originator of dressing said children in chinchilla.

Just six years after this photo was taken, Jake Pavorsky was interviewed by both CSN Philly and CBS 3 at the 2nd annual Liberty Ballers/Rights To Ricky Sanchez lottery party.

Was the inside of Nerlens Noel's suit jacket a preview of the Sixers new uniforms? pic.twitter.com/mYUPtMK2S2— Josh Filomeno (@joshfilz) May 20, 2015
Not only did Nerlens Noel show us some love on Tuesday, but he gave us a sneak peek at what the new uniforms will look like...
Based upon Nerlens Noel's suit + his comment about stars on the sides, maybe the new Sixers unis look like this? pic.twitter.com/SxPfg4yWB6— Conrad Burry (@conradburry) May 20, 2015
Rumor now has it that the Sixers home side panels will be blue, so perhaps this for the design: (cc @CrossingBroad) pic.twitter.com/kk50h4euCi— Conrad Burry (@conradburry) May 21, 2015
If these mockups are close to what we'll see next month, I hate these less than I thought I would. 'PHILA' across the front is kind of weak, but putting stars on the side panels gets a 10 from the Russian judge.

Speaking of jerseys, look at this dashing young fellow in the Delaware 87ers jersey at the Liberty Ballers/RTRS Draft Party. Boo to the 87ers for not sending Caesar the Fox to the party (although he might have gotten kicked out - the event was already over-capacity as it is).
Dear Sevens: Please re-stock your basketball shorts ASAP. And if you could throw your boy a T-shirt and/or sweatshirt that says "Delaware Basketball" on it, I would be forever in your debt. XXL, please - I like my clothes far looser than Michael Levin wears them.

D'Angelo Russell looks excited to come to Philly... pic.twitter.com/WLFWBgPYhI— The Sixer Sense (@SixerSense) May 20, 2015
Philadelphia 76ers point guard-elect D'Angelo Russell sent out the first tweet about 10 minutes after the Sixers landed the No. 3 pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Following that, he started liking a bunch of photos on Instagram of him in a (now throwback) Sixers' jersey.
Just two weeks ago, Russell posted a picture of himself hanging out with BFF Nerlens Noel. And - oh, by the way - Russell was high school teammates at Florida's Monteverde Academy with one... Joel Embiid.
It's destiny, kids. Unless Sam Hinkie pulls a fast one on us. I heard from a pretty decent source that Kristaps Porzingis is already scouting condominiums in the Camden area.

We - Liberty Ballers and the people who frequent it - have reached the pinnacle of the upper echelon of the blog world. A web site that reports on the goings-on of a basketball team that has won 37 games over the past two seasons got a shout out on ESPN.
The notoriety that LB and the Rights to Ricky Sanchez have gained over the past few weeks/months/years is all thanks to you. So... thank you.
500 #sixers fans showed up at a bar to watch the NBA lottery. That's absurd. And awesome. And absurdly awesome.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) May 20, 2015
Love you all.
