Washington Wizards fans, you can kiss Jan Vesely goodbye! But do it slowly, and sensually.

(Vesely, Maynor traded to Denver for Andre Miller)

Before the season season, the general consensus was that the 76ers didn’t care about winning. They traded their biggest star, announced their top draft pick was out for the season, and seemingly only cared about their position in next year’s draft. Everyone knew it, they were “tanking.”
So far they’ve been a Sherman tank, rolling over Eastern Conference contenders with their giant treads, with Michael Carter-Williams steering and the sweet-shooting Spencer Hawes manning the gun turrets. It’s very exciting for Philadelphia fans, but last night’s come-from-behind victory over the Bulls may have been D-Day for General Manager Sam Hinkie’s rebuild plans.

NBA Playoffs Throwback: Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics, 1982 Eastern Conference finals

The defending champion Celtics rematch against the 76ers who they ousted the year before. Dr. Julius Erving and the Sixers finally break through big green. It is amazing how many years during the 80’s the Sixers were eliminated either by Boston or Los Angeles. The Sixers advance by winning game 7 at the old Boston Garden. During the blowout victory Boston fans chant “Beat L.A.!” Philadelphia loses in the NBA Finals in six games to MVP Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 2012 match-up begins with Game 1 Saturday at 7:30pm EST on TNT

Chicago Bulls coach Tim Thibodeau has said that Joakim Noah will be a game time decision for tonight’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers. 
Noah sprained his left ankle in game 3 (Don’t look for the video or any photos; it’s awful. What was even worse the 76ers fans applauding Noah’s injury) and missed game 4 shot some free throws without a brace this morning.
Thibs said that Noah will likely not play, but things can change by game time.  
While it sucks to see Noah on the sidelines, you don’t want to see him rush back and potentially run the risk of sustaining another injury or doing further damage to the injury. It’s the playoffs and players sacrifice their bodies and play through the pain to achieve glory.

NBA Haikus - 2011-2012 Season Preview - The Atlantic Division

It’s going to be a short season after an even shorter off-season. We had limited time to track player movement, team development and bring you in depth team analysis, like we did last year. So the bros and bro-ettes at NBAO decided we’ll follow in the footsteps of the NBA and provide you with abbreviated team previews in the best way possible, haikus.

For our first installment of NBA Haikus, we dive into the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division. A division that seems to be heading towards mediocrity, given the aging Celtics, the lack of depth of the Knicks, uncertainty of the Nets and the permanent stench of the Raptors.

Eastern Conference - Atlantic Division:

Boston Celtics:
A bad trade gets worse
Clippers’ pick and Green, useless
Pull the plug, Danny
__________

New Jersey Nets:
Must trade for Dwight
So you can resign Deron
Brooklyn here they come
__________

New York Knicks:
Need a center, bad
Drop point guard for a center
Need a point guard, bad
__________

Philadelphia Sixers:
A calm Doug Collins
Mediocrity lives here
No sun for Philly
__________

Toronto Raptors:
If Dwane Casey can
Make Toronto play defense
Ed Davis will shine
__________
