The Sixers overtook the NBA news cycle on Wednesday, and for once it had nothing to do with injuries, sicknesses or the Curious Case of Markelle Fultz. Really, this all ties back to Fultz, but more on that in a moment. On this day, the Sixers made another blockbuster trade, sending a combination of seven players and picks to the Los Angeles Clippers for borderline All-Star Tobias Harris, John Wick 3 star Boban Marjanovic and not-The Office star Mike Scott.Elton Brand was the Delaware 87ers general managers at this time last year, and an NBA player just 33 months ago, yet within a three-month stretch as the Sixers’ general manager — hired in September — he’s shaken up the core of the team’s roster and conducted two of the biggest, most franchise-changing trades in team history. Two years ago, there were still questions about if Joel Embiid would ever be healthy. Ben Simmons had yet to play in an NBA game. The Sixers won 28 games that year.Thoughts on Sixers … [Read more...] about With Tobias Harris trade, Sixers are all-in on title pursuit; What about the Markelle Fultz of it all?

Deng Xiaoping and Jimmy Carter smiled broadly as the orchestra played “Getting To Know You,” signaling the dawn of a new era of friendship and cooperation between their two nations. Over the next 40 years, China and the United States built the most important economic relationship in the world and worked together on issues such as regional security, counterterrorism and climate change. Taking Mr. Deng’s lead, China played the junior partner, if not always deferential then at least soft-pedaling its ambitions and avoiding conflict with the much stronger United States. Now, faster … [Read more...] about China Is Confronting New U.S. Hostility. But Is It Ready for the Fight?

Tom Haudricourt Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 12:06 p.m. UTC Jul 23, 2018 When a position player comes in to pitch to save arms in the bullpen, it’s good for smiles and giggles at the time. Every position player wants the chance to strike out another player and see how he likes it. Heck, Brewers utility player Hernán Pérez kept the baseball Sunday when he struck out Los Angeles’ Alex Wood, and Wood is a pitcher. That's how meaningful it is. But Pérez also understands the reality of what’s going on with your team when you’re asked to pretend you’re a pitcher. It means much badness has occurred earlier in the game. “It’s fun for a little bit but it means we’re losing by a lot,” Pérez said. “That’s tough. I don’t like to pitch because it means we’re losing, and I don’t like to lose.” It got plenty ugly at Miller Park before Pérez pitched two scoreless … [Read more...] about Position players on mound prompt giggles but bottom line is it means bad things happened
