  • Commented on Lay an Egg in the Garden
    I haven't posted in a long time, but I still lurk, and thought this was an interesting conversation. Brian, with all due respect, I think you are misreading the Jrue trade, due to, understandably, the fact that he was your...
  • Commented on Visiting An Old Friend
    Considering the way Thad, Hawes, and Turner are playing this year, I disagree that Jrue's usage rate was justified because of the teammates he had in Philly. They are all playing better than Jrue. It was simply in Jrue's own...
  • Commented on Reality Check
    I think it matters because Popovich doesn't care so much about the regular season and Brown does. It's one more advantage Brown has. And Brown should know the holes in their defense and how to exploit them....
  • Commented on Reality Check
    Brett Brown probably knows Popovich's next move before Popovich does. I expect a Sixers victory with Evan balling as usual....
  • Commented on Welcoming Bynum
    Good points. ET, Hawes, and Thad have enough experience to be vets and mentors to the really young guys, but are young enough themselves to fit in perfectly with the rebuild we are doing. If we trade ET, Hawes, and...
  • Commented on Welcoming Bynum
    Agreed....
  • Commented on Welcoming Bynum
    People who have ripped Turner for 3 years are really scratching their heads at 6 straight awesome games from him. This is something that mediocre players (or "the worst player in the NBA") simply do not do. One or two...
  • Commented on Welcoming Bynum
    I think it's more that Evan Turner is playing like an all-star, and MCW, Thad, and Hawes are all playing very well, with Wroten as a good bench guy. Any team in the NBA with 5 guys playing that well...
  • Commented on Welcoming Bynum
    Well it's 6 for 6 in solid games from Turner. Curious to see how many good games this guy is gonna put up in a row. How many guys in the league can even do this for 6 games straight?...
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    I'd say it's of course a stretch to say Turner was one of the worst players in the league. There are plenty of examples of guys who played poorly with their first coach, then were very good on their next...
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    The change in his trade value will be small compared to the negative impact on this franchise if we give away a guy who ends up being a franchise player....
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    Certainly possible, and we'll have to wait and see. The key is to wait and see though. Trading Turner now would be a terrible decision, in my opinion, because what if he is close to this good for the next...
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    You seem to be ignoring the key reason Turner is playing better, his new coach doesn't bury him in the corner....
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    Why would you trade Turner? So far this year he's the best player in his draft class by far....
  • Commented on Are They For Real?
    They may not be one of the 5 worst (hopefully) but you overrate Jrue Holiday in my opinion. He didn't help us win, he's not helping the Pelicans win....
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    Elton is different than most NBA players. He was already married, from Poughkeepsie, not into the nightlife. There's an exception to every rule, but they are rare exceptions. Dumping Hawes, Turner, and Thad for some rare, unlikely-to-happen exception is unwise,...
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    Excellent point. Though I think Turner will probably get 10+, but still, not a huge increase over his 6.7, especially when one considers we're currently under the minimum....
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    It's not about Philly's size. Heck, Detroit is a "bigger" market than Miami too. So is Atlanta. It's about glamour and nightlife, which LA/NYC/Miami dominate, which is why they attract the free agents. Philly's nightlife is garbage, and its women...
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    It depends on how good they are. I think they are better than any free agents you are going to attract to Philadelphia. It's a lame city that big-name free agents have no interest in. If you're not located in...
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    It's only the worst case scenario because you don't think Hawes and Turner are good. But maybe they are good. They certainly have shown it thus far this season, so let's let it play out. In my view, the worst...
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    What are you going to trade these guys for? First-rounders in the 14-18 range? Why? Turner is a 20 points a game guy now, and how do you know it's a 3-game fluke? Maybe the 3 years under Doug was...
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    Agreed....
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    The comments are the best part of this link, everyone says the writer is an imbecile, which he is....
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    I'd say that's a reasonable way of looking at it....
  • Commented on Opening Meh
    "Who would have though ET scores 20+ points in every game on reasonable shooting, getting to line..." Me....
  • Commented on Punish the Feel-Good Bobcats
    Well everyone plays poorly for stretches, including Jrue and Iggy, the heroes of the Sixer blogosphere. Evan's points and rebound averages, considering his minutes and number of shots, were fairly solid his first two years. He just didn't play or...
  • Commented on Punish the Feel-Good Bobcats
    In my opinion he would have done this his rookie year had he been given the minutes he has been given this season. For example, in tonight's game, in which he rocked again, he started 0 for 2. That would...
  • Commented on Punish the Feel-Good Bobcats
    Really. Never once did I waiver from saying ET would be a star. The talent was always there, the minutes weren't. Now the minutes are there (as long as Collins doesn't revert to his old ways, which is always a...
  • Commented on Punish the Feel-Good Bobcats
    Not sulking after mistakes is a direct result of Collins not yanking him for every mistake. The ET supporters said since Day 1 that Collins instant yanking of him was the main reason for his lack of production....
  • Commented on Punish the Feel-Good Bobcats
    My man ET is bringing it, and I never had any doubts!...
