Re: We should be able to make it to the play-off this year if...
i hardly think that brand monopolises the ball. have you watched them this season? they've actually got a very egalitarian offense with AI2, thaddeus venture and andre miller getting lots of touches and shots. in fact those four all average about 15 ppg.
but i do agree about the lack of 3pt shooting, sort of. venture and willie green have been tearing it up from downtown, and donyell marshall and rush have been quite good so far. problem so far seems to be lack of attempts.
i think philly has the best chance to crack the top four in the east. their main problem so far has been trying to integrate brand into the offense, but that should work itself out eventually. second half of last season they were incredible without brand.
