|If you call Reggie Miller an all-time great, you'll probably get a fair amount of disagreement. His game wasn't perfect, but if you were looking for a guy to play between Jrue and Iguodala, you'd be hard pressed to do better than the Knick Killer.|
|First of all, a huge thanks to Tom Moore for providing countless, priceless updates in the comments throughout the day yesterday. It was required reading. The day was filled with information in need of digestion.|
Latest comment: from BrianSoup and Rich, your invites are on their way. Still a couple spots open if anyone else wants in....
|I apologize for interrupting the Carmelo Anthony extravaganza, but a comment from Rich on the last post got me thinking about something that's actually relevant to the Sixers, so I thought I'd open the topic for discussion/voting.|
Latest comment: from XsagoYeeesss finally someone thought of the right kind of trade!!!...
|To be more specific, how much can we expect from Evan Turner this season. Forget about PPG, RPG, minutes. I want to take a look at what rookies over the past couple seasons have produced in a more meaningful way for their teams, and then we can take a guess as to where Turner will slot in among them.|
|The Sixers were kind enough to set up a conference call for a group of bloggers and Evan Turner. A handful of us peppered Evan with questions for about a half hour. Check after the jump for my notes.|
|The final stop on our whirlwind Early Predictions tour is Evan Turner. If winning in the short term, or quickly turning this franchise around in a meaningful way is your goal, Turner is the key.|
|Evan Turner will be chatting live via UStream at 5:30pm today. Apparently he'll be taking questions, so fire away. Link after the jump, you can also watch on the embedded player.|

|After starting out 2-0 in the Orlando Summer League, the Sixers have dropped back down to .500 and looked miserable doing it.|
|The Sixers - or at least some of them - will play their fourth game in four nights against the Bobcats at 7 PM. I read a cryptic tweet earlier that made it seem like Speights may not be playing anymore in Orlando. I guess we'll have to wait and see.|
|The Sixers and Thunder will tip it off at 3PM this afternoon. This will probably be the summer squad's first legit test. OKC has sent a decent squad to Orlando with several guys who saw time for a playoff team last season. A quick preview after the jump.|
|I've been bombarded by marketing e-mails from the Sixers over the past couple of days. They're trying to sell season tickets, which is how they make their money, so good for them. The thing I found kind of odd was the message they're using.|
Latest comment: from Ricky - Sixers4guidosI respectfully think that you are too high on Iguodala, Brian :-)...
|David Thorpe has released his first rookie ranking column for the recently-drafted rooks. Evan Turner slips a bit lower than I would've expected. Thorpe's reasoning after the jump.|
|With the number two pick in the 2010 NBA draft, the Sixers selected Evan Turner earlier tonight. Rumor has it he will wear #12 and terrorize opposing defenses for the next decade. Take a look at what was available at #6 and thank your lucky stars the Sixers had that lottery magic back in May.|
|THE SIXERS TOOK EVAN TURNER WITH THE #2 PICK. We survived the longest month of the year for Sixers fans. All that's left now is a night of excitement as the team changes course (hopefully for the better). Join me in the live blog after the jump starting at 6:30 and ending when the Sixers buy the last pick in the second round and select Brian Zoubek.|
Latest comment: from NFL jerseyskobe will be the greatest player from the past and future!...
