Sixers mailbag: Is Brett Brown responsible for failings against Boston Celtics?

The Sixers came out of one of the toughest 12-game stretches you'll see on an NBA schedule at 7-5, which included a win over a Warriors team that won 16 out of 17 games over the span of a month. For most teams, that would have been enough to inspire the fans and have everyone feeling good about themselves.

Instant observations: Sixers cruise past Knicks in final game before All-Star break

Fresh off a loss at the hands of the Boston Celtics, the Sixers came out and took care of business against a bad New York Knicks team. They let it get a little too close in the fourth quarter, but they ultimately left Madison Square Garden with a 126-111 win, and they enter the All-Star break with a 37-21 record. Not too shabby.

Joel Embiid's struggles against Al Horford continue to haunt Sixers against Celtics

There are a lot of issues for the Sixers in a matchup against the Celtics. The discrepancy in guard play is fairly significant, with Boston's guards uniquely capable of punishing Philadelphia's athleticism disadvantages when the opportunities present themselves. Ben Simmons' dominance in transition is stifled, and the Celtics play him to perfection in the halfcourt.

Instant observations: Upgraded Sixers lose to Celtics again

The Sixers may have a much better starting lineup and dreams of a Finals appearance, but they're still just as flustered as they've ever been against the Boston Celtics. Philadelphia fell 112-109 to Boston on Tuesday night, leaving them just one more opportunity to exorcise the Celtics demons before the playoffs roll around.

The behind-the-scenes details of the Ben Simmons/Magic Johnson tampering saga

The NBA's tampering policy is one that is, to put it lightly, selectively enforced. Look at how the league operates and you'll come to that conclusion rather quickly — LeBron James' decision to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers was an open secret for months, and if you think that was locked down in the opening days of free agency without a lot of behind-the-scenes work, you're kidding yourself.

Ben Simmons' three-point attempt prompts Sixers to ask for more

If anyone is familiar with the conversation surrounding Ben Simmons' shooting, it's his head coach and the rest of his teammates. They don't focus on it and choose to laud him for the rest of his gifts, but it is clear that Simmons developing a three-point shot would transform his game, and thus the Sixers.

Instant observations: Sixers beat down Lakers in national television showcase

Two games into the Tobias Harris era, the Sixers already have the makings of a legitimate title threat. They have things to clean up and roles to settle into, but the Sixers beat the Lakers quite comfortably on Sunday afternoon, earning a 143-120 win in a national showcase game.

Instant observations: Sixers top Nuggets in Tobias Harris' big debut

The Sixers had to incorporate a bunch of new pieces in a national TV game against the Denver Nuggets, and they made it look like no problem against one of the league's best teams. Behind a big JJ Redick performance and a balanced attack elsewhere, the Sixers earned the first win of the new era, 117-110. Not a bad debut for Tobias Harris.

New look Sixers stress togetherness following win in Tobias Harris' debut

Tobias Harris' arrival could mean a lot of things for a lot of different Sixers. Is it a hedge against Jimmy Butler leaving this summer? Will it take the ball out of the hands of their other stars, starting a tug-of-war over touches? Is Brett Brown ready to coach in high-pressure situations with a talented cast?

Sixers' trade deadline frenzy puts spotlight on Brett Brown

For the first few years of his tenure, it was basically impossible to have a rational conversation about Sixers head coach Brett Brown. With a team full of misfits, castoffs, and lottery tickets, how could you judge the merits of a rotation on a 10-win team? The core philosophy of a modern NBA team was there, but the ingredients to play winning basketball were not.
