Smallwood: Noel trade shows how little NBA values centers
IT IS HARD to believe how much respect NBA teams have lost for the big man in the middle. Centers, at least the historical center, have not gone the way of the NFL fullback, but the desire for them certainly doesn't seem to be what it used to be.



Smallwood: Coach Cal's rant is ridiculous
MAYBE IF the man delivering the sermon had not been Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari, I might have been moved a little more.



Smallwood: Does 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo know what he's doing?
Hey, Bryan Colangelo, excuse me, but are you paying attention? I understand that a person in your position as president and general manager of the Sixers can become insulated. But if you have not been listening or reading lately, you might want to.



Smallwood: Has Joel Embiid played enough to win rookie of year?
THERE IS NO question who is the best rookie in the NBA. Sixers center Joel Embiid is hands-down better than anyone else, and by a large margin.



Smallwood: Flyers need more than one goal a game to stay in playoff hunt
THE OLD saying is that defense wins championships, but it takes some goals to make the playoffs. And make no mistake, because the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs have already started for the Flyers.



Smallwood: Hall of Famers and Super Bowls
SUPER BOWL weekend has never been that kind to Eagles fans. This one was not, either. On Sunday, Birds backers had to watch the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy – the sports prize this city most desperately desires.



Smallwood: Ranking the NBA's young teams
THE LAST TIME I did this little exercise, Sam Hinkie was still running the Sixers; Joel Embiid and Dario Saric weren't on the roster; and Ben Simmons had not started his one season at LSU.



Smallwood: Trump's travel ban may affect athletes
IT IS NOT my intent to argue the political, social, legal or moral aspects of President Trump's executive order that suspends entry into the United States for people from a select group of Muslim nations.



Smallwood: Richaun Holmes might be Sixers' best option to back up Joel Embiid
IF YOU GET AWAY from stuff like draft status and trying to build up value for trade purposes, the solution to who should stay with the Sixers as the backup to center Joel Embiid isn't that complicated.



Smallwood: U.S. soccer can't afford to be xenophobic
GROWING UP, I was always told that the United States was a nation of immigrants, and that we are strongest when we embrace our diversity and use it to achieve a common goal.
