Sixers' Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons lag behind in NBA Rookie Survey

Nineteen wins. Eighteen wins. Ten wins. As the 47-199 record mounted over his first three seasons as head coach, the same question arose loss after loss: How does Brett Brown keep the Sixers together? Those who played for Brown during this time could have given generic answers. They simply could have been happy for the chance to play in the NBA and commented on his optimistic demeanor. When Henry Sims told the story about Brown dancing, though, it was clear there was more to their experiences with the coach than just going through the motions of losing basketball. Other players were quick to offer their enthusiastic responses, whether they had been on the Sixers for multiple years or 10-day contracts.

There’s an eclipse today. Maybe you heard. I know it’s tough to find out information about the moon crossing over the sun, but it’s out there. Sports teams around the country are trying to have eclipse-related fun. Now we must rank their efforts. KC Wolf’s “Totality Cool” I don’t get it. I don’t care that I don’t get it. The Chiefs’ mascot has made something wonderful. 76ers’ “Embiid blocks out the sun.” Just a solid effort from one of the best social media teams out there. Columbia Fireflies’ “Tattoo re-creation” This is the only time tattoos of the sun and moon become useful education aids. Wizards’ “John Wall is holding the sun.” This is not great.

76ers take 1 big step (and a couple smaller ones, too)

Philadelphia finished with the league’s fourth-worst record, fell to No. 5 in the lottery, swapped picks with the Kings to move up to No. 3 thanks to a two-year-old trade then traded up to No. 1 by enticing the Celtics with a future draft pick (another pick acquired in that heist of Sacramento, a Lakers pick or one of the 76ers’ own).

Every Philly team has something unique and special about attending one of their games. And all fans have their own opinions so ranking them objectively is sure to prove challenging with results that will be disagreed with by many. But J.D. Power attempted to rank the "fan experience" of Philadelphia's major sports teams using a set of objective criteria (see full study here). Here's how they described the process: Fan satisfaction is evaluated across seven factors (in order of importance): seating area and game experience; security and ushers; leaving the game; arriving at the game; food and beverage; ticket purchase; and souvenirs and merchandise. Satisfaction is measured on a 1,000-point scale.

Sixers Mailbag: Joel Embiid back-to-backs and toughest opponents

The release of the NBA schedule is a highly-anticipated announcement every summer. Now we know what the next 82 matchups will look like for the Sixers, and there is so much to discuss regarding their opponents, road vs. home contests and frequency of games. One of the most popular questions I received was about individual tickets for home games. Those will go on sale in September. Ticket information for the Jan. 18 game in London is available here. Thanks to those who submitted questions with #CSNSixersMailbag. When the schedule was released, I first looked to see the home opener. Then I counted the number of back-to-backs, of which there are 14. The number of consecutive games is significant

The Best Way to Play Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) Stock Now

Thanks to higher oil and gas prices, Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE:CHK) made money in Q2 2017, its second consecutive quarter in the black, putting an artificial floor under CHK stock. When I last wrote about Chesapeake back in April, I said CHK stock was still a huge risk at $6. While its earnings situation is looking far better — Chesapeake Energy generated three times as much revenue in the second quarter year-over-year from less production — it still has a tremendous amount of debt.

Philadelphia 76ers big man Jahlil Okafor took some time out from his day to go help out and teach some kids at the Sixers third annual Camden Youth Basketball Clinic over in New Jersey. Only he found one youngster who felt the need to help the Sixer with his jump shot. The young camp goer turned into a critic and wanted to help the NBA player out. "He's making fun of my jump shot," Okafor tells the CSNPhilly camera guy in the above video. "His jump shot is messed up," the kid says while demonstrating his shooting motion. He goes on to point out his wrist action is wrong, as is his guide-arm angle. The youngster wouldn't be the first to criticize some aspects of Okafor's game but his coach came

Ever since it was announced that Nike would be taking over for adidas as the NBA's official provider of jerseys and apparel, fans have been itching to see what their team's new uniforms would look like. While the degree of difference from last year's adidas jerseys in terms of design will vary from team to team, Nike has announced two main changes to the jerseys that will be universal. First, the jerseys will each features Nike's signature "Swoosh" logo (except for the Charlotte Hornets, who are owned by Michael Jordan and will feature his Nike-affiliated "Jumpman" logo). The addition of the logo will add a new element to each jersey as adidas did not feature their logo on the previous uniforms.

Any fan who's ever stepped foot inside the Citizens Bank Park gift shop could probably guess Steve Carlton (72, 77, 80, 82) and Roy Halladay (2010), arguably the two best Phillies pitchers of the last 50 years, as the first two. But the next two are not Cliff Lee, Cole Hamels, Curt Schilling, Jim Bunning, Rick Wise or even Brad Lidge. They are, instead: John Denny in '83, and Steve "Bedrock" Bedrosian in 1987.  Denny's presence on this esteemed list is surprising but explicable.

Sounds like you were one of the many who gasped whenever Joel Embiid flew out of bounds. The Sixers are tasked with the tough job of getting Embiid to find the balance between giving 100 percent on each play and having enough restraint to avoid hurdling six rows into the stands. One interview with Embiid that struck me last season was when he said in November, I dont really have my legs yet, in regard to finishing around the rim. That showed he still was a work in progress during his rookie year, learning how to maneuver a massive 7-foot, 250-pound frame with its capabilities and areas for improvement.

After spending the NBA Summer League with the Philadelphia 76ers, former Maryland point guard Melo Trimble will continue his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Trimble’s deal, first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, is partially guaranteed, so he figures to get a training camp tryout with the Wolves. Trimble had a hard time getting off the bench for the Sixers summer squad, but in his three games in Vegas he averaged 10.3 points on 60 percent shooting. Trimble was initially signed by Philadelphia right after going undrafted, but the team brought in a cavalcade of young guards to compete and he ultimately didn’t make the cut. Now he’ll join a Timberwolves backcourt that added point guard
