Default 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."
