Welcome, Hoop76

By Kevin Arnovitz

If you grew up in the 1980s during the dominance of the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, there existed one pleasant and exciting alternative -- the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers were the alt band. You knew they'd never achieve the commercial success of the Celtics and Lakers, but man were the Sixers fun -- Dr. J., a backcourt of Mo Cheeks and Andrew Toney, a young Clint Richardson, The Minister of Defense Bobby Jones, then eventually Moses Malone to put them over the top in '83.

Philadelphia has a storied basketball history, and we want to furnish it with a stellar TrueHoop Network blog. In Hoop76, we've found that source.

Hoop76 will be spearheaded by two young journalists who know the team, the city and, we beg your pardon, Philly's peculiar fan culture:
We're excited to have Hoop76 as part of the TrueHoop Network family and feel confident that it will improve the quality of life of every Philadelphia 76ers fan that consumes its steady stream of content. Sixers fans cannot subsist on Andrew Bynum's coif alone.
