Collins expects bigger things from Lavoy Allen
 
Philadelphia Inquirer:

In the two years that Doug Collins has coached the 76ers, rarely has he implored a player to be more aggressive at the offensive end. He did it a few times last season with Jrue Holiday, but by and large Collins wants his players selfless.

This is not, however, the case with Lavoy Allen.

The 6-foot-9 power forward missed two days of training camp last week tending to his girlfriend, who delivered their son, Kai, on Thursday. Shortly after Allen came back and got a good scrimmage under his belt last week, Collins assessed his second-year player.

"He needs to get a bigger ego," Collins said of Allen, who averaged 4.1 points and 4.2 rebounds as a rookie. "That's said in a very positive way. Lavoy can be a double-double kind of guy. You see how well he shoots it. You see how he plays on the boards. He's not intimidated by anyone."

Nothing boosts your ego more than seeing the ball go in the basket.
