    Fansided: Philadelphia 76ers: Might be in trouble from the 3-point line this season

    There are somethings that shouldn't be of concern for teams during the preseason. Such as a lineups or even records during that period. However, if a teams shoots poor in the preseason, there's a good chance it won't get much better in the regular season. The Philadelphia 76ers 3-point shooting woes in the preseason could spell issues for the team's title asperations.

    In five preseason matchups, Philly hasn't shoot great from outside. The 76ers had two good games shooting from the 3-point line. Against the Guangzhou Long-Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), the Sixers shot 37.

    Liberty Ballers: My 17 Predictions for the 2019-20 Sixers

    We made it -- the summer is over, training camp and preseason have passed, and the regular season is just days away. It's time for some predictions.

    Prediction #1: The Sixers push for 60 wins, but fall in the high-50s

    The most recent Vegas Over/Under I have seen for the Sixers is 55. I'm taking the over on that.

    I wanted to write that this team would win 60 games, but there were two factors that swayed me into settling in the high-50s. The first is...

    Prediction #2: The Sixers carefully manage Joel Embiid's regular season workload, and for the first time he enters the playoffs at full strength.

    ESPN.com: Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa ruled out with ankle injury

    TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa left in the first half against Tennessee with an ankle injury and will not return.

    Tagovailoa walked off the field and was taken to the sideline medical tent during the second quarter Saturday night. The 2018 Heisman Trophy runner-up then was escorted to the locker room while Mac Jones took his place.

    Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban told ESPN Tagovailoa twisted an ankle and that he wasn't sure of the quarterback's status for the second half.

    Tagovailoa called a timeout just before the play clock ran out after a sack and walked to the sideline.

    Fansided: Former Philadelphia 76ers players still in the NBA

    The Philadelphia 76ers have a lot of talented players on their roster entering this season. However, the franchise has had talented players on past rosters as well. Some aren't in the NBA any and some are. Currently, there are 31 players on 21 NBA rosters this preseason that have played at least one game for the Sixers.

    In the grand scheme of things, Evan Turner was a bust as the second overall pick back in the 2010 NBA Draft. In his four season tenure with the 76ers, Turner only averaged 11.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.

    Philly Sports Network: Was Sixers' Joel Embiid snubbed in NBA's yearly GM Survey?

    Right around this time every year, the NBA conducts a survey of their 32 general managers. A total of 50 questions are asked, including polls like "Which team will win the 2020 NBA Finals?" and "Who will win the 2019-2020 Kia MVP?"

    Now as it goes with the national sports media, the Philadelphia market is repeatedly and almost exclusively slept on. Normally a simple poll like this would not bother myself or other NBA reporters, however, one poll result, in particular, has managed to really irk fans and analysts alike.

    Liberty Ballers: Sixers face Wizards in preseason dress rehearsal

    Between the Eagles' egg last weekend, having to hear every NBA media member suddenly become an expert on China, and, of course, the usual built-up anticipation, I'm more than ready for this Philadelphia 76ers regular season to get started. First, though, we have one final preseason game, something Brett Brown said the team was treating like a regular season opener. Per Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice:

    "If health permits, I'd play it like I'd play Boston," Brett Brown said Wednesday. "I think incrementally, we had a plan, I think we've delivered on the plan, executed a plan.

    Fansided: Al Horford's reason for why he joined the Philadelphia 76ers

    One of the biggest surprises this summer for the Philadelphia 76ers was the signing of Al Horford. Horford's been one of the better big men in the NBA and the Sixers were able to sign him away from a rival in the Boston Celtics.

    Since Horford's arrival in the City of Brotherly Love, one questions has been burning, why did he chose Philly over Boston? No doubt it had to do something with the four-year deal worth $109 million he received from the Sixers. Still it has to be more than just the money.

    Philly Sports Network: The stakes are higher than ever for Sixers Head Coach Brett Brown

    Current 76ers head coach Brett Brown has had what most would call a "unique" first six seasons in the NBA. He was hired back in 2013, leaving a prestigious position on Greg Popovich's Spurs staff, for a team that had one of the youngest (and one of the worst) rosters in the entire NBA.

    In the span of just 5 short years, Brett Brown and his Sixers went through a plethora of seemingly "franchise players". Evan Turner, Michael Carter-Williams, Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor and Markelle Fultz were all drafted in the top 11. None remain on the team today.

    ESPN.com: Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes exits game vs. Broncos with knee injury

    DENVER -- Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was ruled out of Thursday night's game against the Denver Broncos after suffering a right knee injury in the second quarter.

    Mahomes was injured on a quarterback sneak on fourth down with just over nine minutes remaining in the first half. As medical staff attended to him on the field, it appeared Mahomes' knee was straightened and popped back into place.

    A cart came on to the field, apparently to take Mahomes from the field. He was instead helped off the field by a couple of trainers.

    Fansided: Philadelphia 76ers get snubbed in 2019's annual GM survey

    Brett Brown and the Philadelphia 76ers enter the 2019-20 season with high expectations. Another summer of roster turnover leaves the team with Al Horford and Josh Richardson alongside its returning stars -- a stable, defensively-inclined core.

    Some view the Sixers as true contenders, even favorites in the Eastern Conference. Others have valid skepticism, questioning Philadelphia's path forward on offense and whether or not the gargantuan starting lineup is truly matchup-proof on defense.

    In the end, the Sixers probably fall somewhere in the middle. A flawed group, but one with enough firepower and uniqueness to win games and compete in the playoffs.
