See his postgame rant video. its kinda sad, hes coached his ass off but the Sixers arent just responding. Sure they have injuries and may have traded away the wrong peices but It looks like Doug is on his way out because history shows that hes never lasted more than 3 years at any coaching tenure in the NBA
Sometimes your predictions are right and sometimes wrong. I got this one right.
Most analysts had 76ers as a Top 4 team in East. I said 76ers would struggle and either get an 8th seed or maybe miss the playoffs....I felt that way even assuming Bynum is healthy.
Why? Because they lost their best 3 experienced players in Iggy, Brand, and Williams. Did everyone think the "young kids" would get BETTER losing those 3? Seemed logical they would take some steps back before they learn how to win again.....
They got rid of Vucevic, which hasn't turned out well.
Collins has a record of being a horrible in personnel decisions.
When he was in Washington, he turned down trading the no. 1 pick (where they drafted Kwame Brown) for Elton Brand, who was an All-Star level player at that point. And they could have drafted Pau Gasol instead, even if they hadn't traded away the pick.
In Washington, they also traded Rip Hamilton for Jerry Stackhouse.
Bynum is going to get a max deal for 4 years, say 60 million. If the Sixers don't want to guarantee that full amount, then some other team will (maybe the Hawks).
