To correct an earlier tweet: Upper Darby took a 7-0 lead on a 2-yard TD run by Linder Divos. (Royals beat Penncrest, 39-22.)

Derek Bodner

If healthy, the best 2-way center in the game in 3 years. RT @DadSelfie: @Derek Bodner If healthy, how good is Embiid?

Derek Bodner

I'm spending my Friday night watching Kansas games from last year. It's hard not to get excited about the future.

Christopher A. Vito

Penncrest goes for it on 4th-and-goal at the 1...and can't convert. Then, Lions commit a personal foul. It's their 11th penalty (95 yards).

76ers Joel Embiid and his sister are on their way to Cameroon following death of younger brother.

this is a tweet. It has great meaning.

this tweet has no commercial or marketing value whatsoever.

This is awesome. MT @JosephDuruaku: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's mom bought 70 copies of Sporting News featuring Arizona and RHJ on the cover.

Derek Bodner

Why even bother having package tracking if, for status, it only says "It's on its way."

Derek Bodner

14 years old. I can't even imagine.

Derek Bodner

Per @Bob Cooney, Joel Embiid's 14 year old brother, Arthur, was killed in an accident involving a vehicle.

Every time Arnett takes a shot I picture Spike’s reaction.

John R. Finger

can the Sixers retire Iverson's number again?

Bob Cooney

Iverson in the house. He would be best player on floor for Sixers tonight

Tom Moore

#Sixers Allen Iverson sitting courtside.

John R. Finger

Allen Iverson is here and has really good seats.

Derek Bodner

Turner does also have 9 assists, to be fair. Although it’s easier to get assists when the other team isn’t playing defense.

Derek Bodner

Evan Turner is scoreless (0-4) with 6 turnovers in 25 minutes played, in case you were wondering.

Derek Bodner

We have an Alexey Shved sighting. I know everybody was staying tuned in waiting.

Keith Pompey

This is TOO easy for the Celtics, who lead 89-69 after three quarter. E-A-S-Y!!!!!! They are shooting 50 percent. But looks like 90

Derek Bodner

Drew Gordon doing Drew Gordon things? Yeah. I’ll go with that.

Derek Bodner

I wonder if anybody has tried telling Arnett Moultrie that he gets an extra point if he goes back two feet.

Derek Bodner

Henry Sims makes a nice contest at the hoop, then throws the outlet pass away. Sims has struggled a bit in preseason.

Keith Pompey

On the bright spot, the #Sixers are without three starters tonight in this mismatch. However, this is still going to be a looooooong season.

Derek Bodner

Arnett Moultrie long two. Remember Sam Hinkie’s quote about caring more about expected value than if shot goes in?

Derek Bodner

I almost want the opposing team to make their free throws.

Bob Cooney

Sixers get backcourt violation, to open the second half. Never saw that

Derek Bodner

That seems like that’s about how the season will go.

Tom Moore

Updated total: #Sixers with 12 made field goals and 15 turnovers. Down 56-36 late second quarter. E Williams leads with 10 points.

Derek Bodner

Passing has not been on point tonight. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. #sixers

Bob Cooney

Of the celtics 20 three point attempts, 20 have been of the wide open variety. They've made 9

Bob Cooney

Evan Turner has 6 assists in 15 minutes

Bob Cooney

We not halfway through second quarter and teams have combined for 18 turnovers

Bob Cooney

Brandon Davies with a bank three-pointer from too of key. Yup. Celts up 12

Derek Bodner

Brandon Davies bank 3. Count it.

Bob Cooney

Arnett Moultrie and Elliott Williams both impressing so far for Sixers

Derek Bodner

Arnett Moultrie with the crossover pull-up long two. It went in, but get those out of your system when Sam’s not around.

Bob Cooney

Really interested in KJ McDaniels and his progression this season. He could be a solid nba player.

Derek Bodner

Nice D there by K.J. McDaniels. pressured his man on the perimeter and forced the steal. Will be fun to watch him progress this year.

Bob Cooney

Boston has as many threes (5) as Sixers do field goals. 33-17

John R. Finger

firing t-shirts into the crowd makes one wonder why they just don't hand out a few to everyone when they walk in.

Derek Bodner

That is one heck of a t-shirt canon.

Tom Moore

#Sixers with 4 made baskets and 5 turnovers so far. Down 27-12 to #Celtics.
