The 76ers FEDS nickname stinks, so why won’t our suggestion of Right Said FREDS catch on?


I see nothing problematic with this at all.

Leave it up to CSN Philadelphia to completely suck all of the fun out of the NBA draft by suggesting the absolute dumbest nickname for the 76ers young core of exciting players. The FEDS? Fultz, Embiid, Dario, Simmons? Get the hell out of here. That’s awful.

But look, we’re not about tearing down at the Coggin, we’re all about building up. We’re not just going to trash an idea, no matter how idiotic and stupid it is, without at least offering a viable alternative. Good game, good effort CSN, but let the professionals take over from here.

There’s only one possible solution to this problem and it’s the simplest.


Nerlens Noel takes Canadian girlfriend out for third Valentine’s Day in a row

NBA: Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ersPhiladelphia, PA – For the third Valentine’s Day in a row, 76ers center Nerlens Noel turned down Valentine’s Day plans with his teammates to take out his “smoking hot girlfriend from Quebec” for a romantic night out.

Noel said he and “Suzie” had dinner reservations at Fork in Old City for 7 p.m. and then would likely retire to his Philadelphia apartment for a “serious make-out sesh.”

76ers logoThe Philadelphia 76ers fell to the Knicks last night, 98-91, in something that “technically” was defined as a basketball game, but onlookers couldn’t confirm. The two basement dwelling teams of the Eastern Conference entertained dozens and dozens of fans at the Wells Fargo Center.

– Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks intelligently shook off his recent injury knee injury to play in a pivotal early season match up between a 7-36 team and an 8-34 team.


– For the 10th game in a row, Furkan Aldemir menacingly brandished a scimitar at a Wells Fargo vendor for not providing him a jug of fermented ox blood during a first quarter timeout.

– 76ers public announcer Matt Cord continues to provide play-by-play action over the Wells Fargo PA system during each game.

– 76ers great Moses Malone was introduced as a special guest before tip-off, and walked out onto the court while flipping off the crowd with both hands.
