Miller/Williams/Green/Ivey

That team can keep up with anyone in the East, I don't care what anyone says.
They lack good perimeter shooting from their starters.

Versatile. Dalembert, Miller, and Evans are probably the only players on the team limited to one position.

For players only put at one position...

Miller/Williams/Ivey
Iguodala/Green/Rush
Young
Brand/Evans/Marshall
Dalembert/Speights/Ratliff
you think speights gets mins at center over ratliff? Maybe down theline, butratliff still brings some solid skills.

Marshall doesn't seem to be the same player he was 2-3 years ago before he got to the Cavs. If he can just hit open jumpers he'll be a good addition. He'll be getting minutes behind Evans.

sixers will win with good defense and rebounding, just like last year. except this year we wont be running our offense through reggie evans in the playoffs.

What type of game does Reggie Evans have? Is he a hardnosed banger inside and physical? I know his offensive game is pretty limited.

hes basically just a great hustle guy who brings energy off the bench. hes also one of the best rebounders in the game. but hes probably the least talented offensive player in the league.

as for Toronto being "for sure" better than Orlando, Orlando won 11 more games last year than Toronto. I know that Bosh missed some games, but they still would have beaten them by more than 5. Jermaine O'Neal is an upgrade WHEN HEALTHY, but problem is he hasn't been for years. Orlando didn't get too much better, but replacing Evans Arroyo and Dooling with Courtney Lee, Anthony Johnson and Mickael Pietrus is an upgrade in my opinion. Orlando is still better until further notice

Basically. If this was Donyell Marshall when he was a Toronto Raptor? Then I'd (because dude was a damn Sixers killer from downtown). But now? Just another veteran body, experienced where certain situations (depending on what those may be) he'll get some burn. How effective/efficient? Really dont know. Its the same story with Theo Ratliff. These two names would sound great/be worth the "omg stefanski = god, i love his ass (ot literally tho heehee)" if this was 3yrs ago. But alas, its not. Just to round out the roster and add insurance/bodies. Considering Jason Smith is injured and Marreese Speights could spend time in the NBDL unless he proves in practice/preseason he deserves minutes/is ready.

Getting Brand was great and adding Rush to replace Korver was nice. That in itself helps makes the Sixers a solid/legit playoff contender. I'd bank more on Iggy proving he can be the starting SG, Lou/Thad improving thier games over Marshall/Theo doing anything. Heck I'd bank on Theo providing something before Donyell. But again dude is 35, on the last hoorah of his career so he isnt lookin to play significant minutes. Just be on a team that is a playoff contender and if he can add anything during the reg if not postseason? Nice. But its not something I hope/exppect.
