McIlvaine Smith decides to seek reelection to Pa. House
The decision of a Democratic lawmaker representing the West Chester region to reverse course and seek a third term will make a key Chester County race more competitive, analysts said Friday.



Stephen A. Smith: 76ers won't commit to a No. 2 pick in NBA draft
As the NBA draft approaches, there is a desire to look at these 76ers differently, to believe, yet again, that this year will be different from practically all the rest. There is hope that another Allen Iverson will be found - and that another Shawn Bradley won't. But as decision time arrives, the Sixers are either unclear about the direction they're going or playing mind games with the public to keep us all interested.



Stephen A. Smith: Drafting Turner a necessary next step for 76ers
The NBA draft is approximately 48 hours away, and here's what we know about where the 76ers are right now:



Stephen A. Smith: Jettisoning Dalembert helps Sixers
Now that the NBA Finals have ended and we've watched Kobe Bryant coronated for the fifth time as a world champion, it's time to direct our focus at the 76ers - and some of the reasons we can only dream they'll be as successful as the Lakers some day.



Stephen A. Smith: Something wrong with those Phillies
By the middle of June, even if you can't pitch, won't hit, and struggle to tie your own shoelaces, you should still have some semblance of an identity. There should be no curiosity as to whether Shane Victorino can be effective at the plate, whether Ryan Howard will ever be worth $125 million, or whether the team can succeed while leadoff man Jimmy Rollins continues his rehabilitation.



Stephen A. Smith: Holmgren deserves credit for Flyers' resurgence
In a city that never fails to call things as it sees them, especially when mediocrity threatens to permeate and contaminate, it's worth noting when someone stands above the crowd with a halo for a change. Perhaps when it comes to Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren, we should do a little more than that.



Stephen A. Smith: Harper's rise a clear case of hypocrisy
Major League Baseball is en route to having a kid wonder in the nation's capital. You might have heard the news. At the moment, he's just 17 years of age. He's known for smacking 500-foot home runs. As a catcher, he can throw runners out from his knees. On the mound, his fastball has been clocked at 96 m.p.h. And in a perfect world, devoid of the self-righteous and sanctimonious, that is all any of us would ever know about Bryce Harper.



Stephen A. Smith: Hometown disdain for Bryant is inexplicable
He's a 12-time all-star in the National Basketball Association. The number of times he's been a first-team, all-defensive player is eight - and counting. He won't be 32 until August. By that time, he just might have as many championship rings as Magic Johnson. And oh, by the way, he was born right here in Philadelphia.



Stephen A. Smith: For the Phillies, October will be the time to worry
You can talk all you want about a debilitated Brad Lidge, about the Phillies pitching staff's being hardly anything to write home about. But when their reasons for losing don't revolve around pitching, when impotence at the plate has become their Achilles heel, the time for panic is far from now. Or June through September, for that matter.



Stephen A. Smith | Gambling probe is worst blow for NBA
LAS VEGAS - Forget the brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills and other troubling incidents over the last few years. Today, none of that means anything to the National Basketball Association. Not after learning that the FBI is investigating one of its referees for betting on games he officiated - with mob-connected bookies - tarnishing the sport in ways unruly behavior could never come close to doing.
