Cooney's NBA predictions

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 22:25:51 GMT2016-10-25T22:25:51Z

SOME PREDICTIONS for the 2016-17 NBA season: Leading scorer: James Hardin, Houston (29.7 points per game): Under new coach Mike D'Antoni, Houston will be even more of a scoring team than the one that put up 31 threes a game and scored 106.5 points. Harden will benefit most.

Cooney: Some projections for the Sixers' season

REMEMBER WHEN this Opening Night for the 76ers would have rivaled all the hype surrounding Sunday's Eagles-Cowboys game? But that was before Ben Simmons, Nerlens Noel and Jerryd Bayless got shelved. And before Jahlil Okafor experienced knee soreness and will be a limited participant, at least for the first couple of weeks.

No more blowing whistles, calling strikes for the Crawfords

A photo taken last summer at the Jersey Shore purported to show a recently retired Joe Crawford relaxing. Instead, with his toes digging at the sand, his hands throttling a chair and his seated torso arched tensely, the former NBA referee looked more like a man trying to unshackle himself.

Sixers big men: Strengths and weaknesses

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 18:25:23 GMT2016-10-25T18:25:23Z

Joel Embiid Strengths: Embiid has a solid low-post game and he can step out and make three-point shots. There's really not a lot the 7-foot-2, 276-pounder, who will command double teams, struggles to do on the floor.

You looked mostly at their feet, of course. The 76ers concluded practice Monday with an unusual drill, one that was less about structure and repetition than it was about the pure pleasure of being in the midst of a potentially singular basketball talent. Joel Embiid was the only player to participate, and because he was, it was natural, while watching the drill, to keep your eyes on everyone's feet.

WHEN BRETT Brown took over the coaching duties with the 76ers, he was given a roster that included many players who were barely older than his high school-age daughter.

Sixers sign Christmas and waive him to keep his D-League rights

That was quick. Dionte Christmas was set to travel to Greece to resume his professional basketball career until the 76ers contacted his agent Sunday night. So instead of getting on the plane, the former Temple standout drove to Camden on Monday morning to sign with the Sixers.

What else do the 76ers have? Most of the attention this preseason has gone to the Sixers' three big men and Dario Saric since Ben Simmons is sidelined for at least three months with a fractured right foot.
