, all the time

Welcome Back, Rodney

I hope, I hope, I hope, I pray, I hope, I dream, I plead, I beg that this is the beginning of the end of Bill Green on the 76er bench! Please, Ed, time to clean house. Please!

Glad he is back. He has alot of fans on the sixer blogs.

Good move. Agree that we could see Kapono and Rodney filling much of those Wille Green minutes. Feel a bit better about the roster after this news.

I hope you are right! Obviously I don't hide my feelings about Bill Green.

It's not Willie Green's fault that the Sixers GMs and coaches were so pathetic in player acquisition and development that he was oour starting SG by default.

It's not Wilie Green's fault that BK gave him a ridiculous contract.

As a 8-9 man rotation/backup SG, I like Willie Green.

I like the Carney signing...like what he and Kapono bring to the bench...but I also like what Willie brings to the table - in limited minutes - as well.

Good depth signing.

You are COMPLETELY correct. I am just sick and tired of seeing Green being a starter.

If Willie plays like he did last year, Carney likely won't be noticably better.(maybe worse? I'd have to look into it more) If Willie plays like he did a couple years ago, Carney easily should be better.

I still want to see some healthy scratches from Willie. That will be a happy say in my Sixers watching career.

Off-topic, but if I could redo the 07 draft

12: Thaddeus Young
20: Rudy Fernandez
30: Carl Landri
38: Marc Gasol
55: Ramon Sessions

At least they got #12 right.

Hindsight is always 20/20

Like Carney, was sad too to see him traded, but was happy about the bigger picture at the time. Should do well when he sees the court. He can flat out get up, should make for at least a highlight reel or two this season.

I am very happy with this move mainly cause I really liked carney before and Ive always hated Willie. Welcome back carney and (more importantly) bye bye Willie.
