"The 2001 team was probably the best," Horry said. "We went [15-1], which will never be accomplished again. You should have looked at us after we lost that first game [against the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA Finals], we were so disappointed. We were so hurt that we didn't sweep everybody in the playoffs, because that was our goal." Los Angeles Times

How long do you think Dario needs in order to become an NBA player? Brett Brown: “I think he can play now! I think that in Philadelphia we are about development and about opportunity. He would look around and see a lot of fellow young players that just want a chance to play. Our whole emphasis in Philadelphia is about development and help our players. We are trying to be as good as we can be in sport science and growing up players physically and from a skill perceptive. He is an other one of our young lottery picks that we hope to grow the program with”. EuroHoops.net

A trio of the biggest future stars for the Philadelphia 76ers - Michael-Carter Williams, Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid - flew across the Atlantic Ocean to come to the Croatia-Puerto Rico game at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup to support a fourth future cornerstone of the organisation - Croatia's Dario Saric. "We came out here to support Dario. He's a great player. It's my first time seeing him and I'm very impressed and excited about the future and having him be a part of what we’re building in Philadelphia," said Noel, the first of two first round picks for the Sixers in the 2013 NBA Draft, but who sat out last season due to a knee surgery.

¡Saludos desde España! The 2014 FIBA World Cup began on Saturday, with 24 teams representing 24 nations from across the globe descending upon Spain for a basketball tournament that occurs just once every four years. A total of 45 current NBA players are participating in the event, and 17 more have connections to NBA teams via draft rights. One of those 17 players is Croatian forward Dario Saric, whose rights were acquired by Philadelphia during the 2014 Draft. This week, a five-man Sixers contingent consisting of General Manager Sam Hinkie, head coach Brett Brown, Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid, and Michael Carter-Williams traveled to Spain to watch the 20-year-old Saric firsthand. "I am proud of the effort our three players – Nerlens, Joel, and Michael – have made to fly to Spain in order to show their support for Dario, another cornerstone of our program," said Coach Brown. "The opportunity for all of us to spend quality time with each other and continue to discuss how we are going to build our program is very exciting. "As a group we are committed to getting this right." NBA.com

The Sixers waived Hasheem Thabeet on Monday, according to the RealGM transactions log, though the team has yet to formally announce the move. That means the club released him on the final day before his non-guaranteed $1.25MM salary for this coming season was to have become fully guaranteed, even though it initially appeared as though the Sixers missed that deadline.

Every so often, a visual technology comes along that leaves us speechless. The first color television, the groundbreaking special effects seen in George Lucas’ Star Wars, holographic Tupac Shakur… Experiences like these make us want to go out and tell everyone we know about what we just witnessed.

As part of a larger set of changes to the team’s game presentation this season, the Sixers will join the New Jersey Devils and Cleveland Cavaliers in becoming the first professional sports teams in the nation to adopt the cutting edge projection-mapping technology permanently.
