  • Commented on Closing Time
    I definitely like this lineup in the 4th. I still don't trust Collins in a close game though. He seems to get completely flummoxed down the stretch if it's close (both last year and this year). We've played 15 games....
  • Commented on Sixers Smother ATL, Explode Late
    He wants a chance to start and thinks he deserves it even though he doesn't, so I think he'll leave even for less money, unless the Sixers offer substantially more than any other team (which I pray they don't)....
  • Commented on Sixers Smother ATL, Explode Late
    I remember Collins just saying "Wow" after he worked out Wes. Thank god Stefanski didn't give him much input into the drafting, sheesh....
  • Commented on Sixers Smother ATL, Explode Late
    Great points. I was surprised during the draft at the near-unanimous disgust with the Vucevic pick. We desperately needed a backup center, he was the only true center in the draft, and I thought he was the best available player...
  • Commented on Stop The Streak At One
    Another loss. Here's to hoping the upcoming 3-game losing streak (and accompanying 1-6 record against above .500 teams) forces Collins/Thorn to make the necessary changes, including but not limited to: 1) start Turner, bench Meeks 2) make Turner the closer...
  • Commented on Stop The Streak At One
    I agree. But then Meeks would go to Collins' office after the game, whine about his minutes, and beg for plays to be run for him like a junior varsity coach's pet....
  • Commented on Miller Too Much For Sixers
    That's pretty awesome, thanks for that info Brian....
  • Commented on Miller Too Much For Sixers
    Unfortunately this was consistent with the way Collins coached close games last year too. So I don't think it was an "off night," I think this is what he is. Remember last year when someone asked him why he kept...
  • Commented on Miller Too Much For Sixers
    Japan must be amazing, do you teach English there?...
  • Commented on Miller Too Much For Sixers
    It's one of his fatal flaws. Another is that he thinks it's a good idea to remove your hottest player from the game on the most important possession....
  • Commented on Miller Too Much For Sixers
    I think his jumper looked better last year. Remember him draining threes at the end of the season and in the Miami series? I'm hoping this is just natural growing pains from a complete transformation of the way he shot...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    > I assumed it was. Typically when it's the final couple possessions, from my observations, Doug draws up an iso for Iggy or Lou....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    +1 right back. The jumpshots killed us, Turner's drives brought it back, jumpshots killed us again. Collins made so many late-game mistakes it's hard to pick one. I don't know what to think about the timeout thing. Obviously not calling...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Is another big man really going to solve the key problem that Collins can't coach a close game? We lost them all last year, we've lost them all this year. So many coaching mistakes at the end it was unreal....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    There was an instant change when he was on the floor without Meeks. It totally turned the game around. Turner took over the game....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Yeah, I'm happy about that because it means Lou is definitely leaving. He was pissed once again about his 4th quarter benching, there's no way he's coming back. That pleases me. I'm convinced Meeks has naked pictures of Collins somewhere....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Agreed. It wasn't a coincidence that we made our run almost immediately after Meeks FINALLY got removed in the 4th quarter. He was the only guy who played the entire 3rd, it was truly incredible. Turner brought us back, almost...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    +2...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Basically, Meeks played the entire 3rd quarter (only guy on the team to do so), and he also started the 4th. Finally Doug took out Meeks, Turner took over the game, we took the lead, we had our natural close-game...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Meeks finally gets benched, Sixers go on a tear. Sorry but that's not a coincidence....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    smh at Jodie's 30 minutes and Turner's 15 minutes at this point in the game...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Does Jodie have pics of Doug in compromised positions? Maybe that's what the meeting in his office was about....
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    ditto...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Jodie played that whole quarter right? And no one else did? Unbelievable. Coach's Pet to the Max!...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Coach's Pet. He probably went into Collins' office again to kiss his @$$...
  • Commented on Game 14 Thread: PHI vs. DEN
    Looks like Collins/Thorn trading away a backup big man for nothing and not replacing him has come back to haunt them. Shocker....
  • Commented on Big Macs? No. Confetti? Yes.
    You can have a loud arena without being obnoxious Duke college kids...
  • Commented on Big Macs? No. Confetti? Yes.
    Despite our differences in the game thread I am 100% in agreement with you here. I hated the annoying chants and I hated the freak in the green suit. This isn't some pathetic college team trying to imitate Duke. If...
  • Commented on Game 13 Thread: PHI vs. MIL
    You've got to at least give me that my opinion on Collins is pretty consistent. I'm generally negative about his treatment of players (overplays by a ton his coach's pet Meeks, refuses to change his lineup despite endless slow starts,...
  • Commented on Game 13 Thread: PHI vs. MIL
    I also said your theory that Vucevic must be injured was silly, and it was....
