Default Sixers have offered Theo Ratliff a deal?

Quote:
With second-year big man Jason Smith likely out for the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, an unsubstantiated report surfaced that the Sixers had reached out to former Sixers center/forward Theo Ratliff with an offer to play for the veterans' minimum. A source familiar with that situation said Ratliff had offers from other teams for more money, but that he was very interested in the Sixers.

Ratliff, a 13-year veteran, finished last season with the Detroit Pistons.

Sixers fans screamed Elton Brand, Kareem Rush and Theo Ratliff. The odds we end up with all 3.

What depth you guys have. I think you guys, if healthy, could even be the SECOND seed. Sick lineup.


Dalembert/Ratliff?/Hill/Speights
Brand/Speights/Evans/Randolph
Iggy/Thad/Rush
Green/Rush/Williams/Iggy
Miller/Williams/Ollie


I mean, 4 of your starters play at an all-star caliber. Dalembert is a sick defender, I like his game, so I included him too. And your depth at the 1/2/3 makes up for Green as your 2.

We don't have Herbert Hill, Randolph or Ollie. Ivey is our 3rd pg. Thad will start at 3, with Iguodala at the 2. And Evans is our backup PF, with Speights being the 3rd big at either center or PF. But otherwise, you are correct, our team is looking quite good...just imagine if we still had Jason Smith for the whole year as well

Denver was better LAST YEAR. but not this year. If denver comes to the east they wont win 50+ games because on this side of the US we play defense. besides miller,iggy,thad,brand,& sam>chucky,AI,Melo,K-mart,& nene

why would he want to be on a team who trades away defensive players of the year for trash and in the tougher conference when he could breeze through the east? you, my friend, are the one who fails.

Are you saying East>West? Just because Boston won the championship doesnt mean East>west

Miller>>>atkins
AI>>>>>>Iggy

Brand>>>>>>>>K-Mart
Nene=Sam

My point was Denver>Philly and that is a FACT...Believe it or not the team got better after they traded Camby..Camby used to get OWNED by quality Centers..the problem is the western conference is too competitive

I'm going to act like I don't see that thing that says Nene=Dalembert. And if you're going to put that many ">" for melo and thad, than put that many for atkins and miller.
