Sixers Bringing Back Old Uniforms: The Bloggers Win!

Sixers Old Uniforms 80'sIt's been a while since I've covered the Sixers.  Obviously, when its football season, the 76ers kind of take the backseat.  Let's recap the season so far.  In a nutshell, they started the season off slow, Elton Brand got injured (he has now returned to practice), they went on a 7-game win streak before losing to Dallas, and they are now currently 2nd in the Atlantic Division and 7th in the East.

Well, the more important news is that I've gotten word that the 76ers are switching back to their old uniforms permanently starting next season.  If you recall, my website and Ricky's Sixers 4 Guidos were lobbying with the 76ers PR department to get the 76ers to bring back the old unis.  Their original response was that it was a complicated and sensitive matter, but it looks like they finally saw the genius in this idea and they said that the 1983 uniforms would be brought back permanently next season.

Here is the unofficial word:
Kate Price, Sixers’ Vice President of Business Operations, said yesterday to a group of season ticket holders in a fan forum that the franchise will be switching back to the old logo and the old 1982-83 uniforms (white/home, red/away) starting next season.

Damn, these are beautiful!  Thanks to everyone who signed the petition to make this happen.

Elton Brand's New Shoe Debuts



This past weekend, Saturday November 8th, Converse launched Elton Brand's first signature shoe at the Inaugural Converse Philly Run. Over 300 kids were given a pair of EB1s by Brand himself.  Here is a video from the event.

Given the state of economy, parents who attended the event were also impressed with the EB1's $65 price point, compared to some of the more expensive signature basketball shoes available.

The shoe is available exclusively at JCPenny.

Iverson still talking about practice

Sorry for the lack of updates since the historic World Series win.  There was that, then Halloween, and then the presidential election, so I've been consumed many tons and tons of things lately and didn't even get a chance to talk about the Eagles/Seahawks game.  Hopefully, we'll get back to covering those things soon.

I'm sure most of you have heard by now that Allen Iverson has been traded to the Detroit Pistons for Chauncey Billups and Antonio McDyse.  And he keeps talking about practice!

Iguodala signs: 6-year $80 million contract

Andre Iguodala ContractThe following is from Yahoo Sports:

The Philadelphia 76ers and swingman Andre Iguodala agreed to a six-year, $80 million contract, according to a report by ESPN on Tuesday.

Philadelphia locked up its best player and has the look of a team that will be a contender in the Eastern Conference for years to come. The Sixers also signed free-agent forward Elton Brand to a five-year deal worth a reported $82 million earlier this offseason.

Hopefully, Jay will provide is amazing analysis on the deal.

Sixers lock up Lou Will for 5 years

Sixers Louis WilliamsThe 76ers were able to get a deal with Louis Williams done.  Williams has signed a 5-year deal, but financial details have not been disclosed yet.

Now, let's work on the Iguodala deal and the Sixers should be set.

In other 76ers news, they were able to sign G Kareem Rush to help out in the 3-point shooting department.  Rush spent last season with the Pacers and averaged 8.3 PPG.

Sixers sign Speights, working on Louis Williams contract

Sixers 2008 Offseason NewsLost in the shuffle of the excitement over the Eagles training camp, a few bits of Sixers news has fallen through the cracks.  Well, it's better late than never.

First, the Sixers signed first-round pick Marreese Speights.  He will earn $2.6 million over the next two season and the Sixers hold an option for two more years.

Second, the Sixers are working on a new contract with Louis Williams, a restricted free agent.  No team has given Williams an offer, but the Golden State Warriors are reported to be interested in giving Williams an offer.  However, I don't see Williams getting a Golden State offer since they just signed Monta Ellis to a 6-year $66 million deal.  Stefanski believes he will be able to sign both Iguodala and Williams next season.

This Sixers have also signed G Royal Ivey to boost their backcourt depth.  Ivey spent last season with the Milwaukee Bucks and will receive the league minimum $854,957.

Clippers going after Iguodala?

Iguodala Clippers RumorsIn a move to get a little revenge on Philadelphia for signing Elton Brand, the Clippers are pusuing Andre Iguodala.  Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy has confirmed that the Clippers organization has had contact with Iguodala, but did not offer any specifics about their communication.  The Clippers have $12 million to spend next season and are also pursuing Hawks PF Josh Smith.  Since Iguodala is a restricted free agent, if the Clippers were to offer Iguodala a contract, the 76ers would have 7 days to match the offer.

Charles Barkley weighs in on Brand signing

Charles Barkley on why Elton Brand chose the 76ers over the Clippers after he said he would sign with the Clippers if they signed Baron Davis:  "Brand has a better chance to win Philly.  It's just business."

Elton Brand was a much better choice than Josh Smith; Speights impresses in debut

Elton Brand SixersAfter first hearing about the Elton Brand signing, I was thrilled, but was a also little disappointed that the Sixers didn't opt for Josh Smith instead.  I thought Smith's youth and speed would be a better fit for Philadelphia's style of basketball.  However, the acquisition of Brand was definitely the better move. 

First, Josh Smith wasn't a guarantee because he was a restricted free agent, so going after Smith instead of Brand would be a huge gamble.  Second, Brand gives the team a leadership figure that the other forwards (Thaddeous Young, Jason Smith, Marreese Speights) can learn from.  Third, Brand will help the team's half-court offense more than Smith could have, which was something that really hurt the Sixers in the Detroit series.  Fourth, Brand and Dalembert will get more blocks and rebounds than Dalembert and Smith would have.  Sixth, Brand's command for double teams will give Dalembert more opportunities to score.  My only concern: I just hope that Brand isn't another Chris Webber.

This Philadelphia Inquirer article notes how thrilled the young Sixers are to have Elton Brand. The article also mentions that the 76ers played their first NBA Summer League game and the 76ers young rookie Marreese Speights impressed: 23 points, 13 rebounds.  Thaddeus Young also had a solid game: 27 points, 6 rebounds.  Jason Smith had 11 points and 9 rebounds.  However, the Sixers lost to Golden State 96-89.
