Re: Somebody give me a fair evaluation of the Sixers so far
I'm excited. Sure it looks like they haven't played together before (there's a reason for that)...and so TO's are gonna be a few-too-many, assists are gonna be a couple too few, steals against a little high...things like that.
But they show flashes of being pretty good. A 55 win team? Not so sure about that...but a playoff team for sure. I like Sammy's new role of picking up the (unguarded, trashy) pieces, Green off the bench, love Young as does most everyone. Brand is getting more comfortable; just wait until he's perfectly in his element. I look for his assists off the post to double as our guys begin to learn that they should slash when he's doubled. I'm excited for game # 30. I think that's when these guys mesh.
Iggy has been reduced to his more suited role of 4th best on the team. The sooner he accepts that role (and stops forcing things he ain't capable of), the better we'll all be.
