|When the Sixers took the court tonight for a scrimmage, Doug Collins decided to shuffle the lineup a bit. Gone from the first team was Spencer Hawes, in his place was rookie Craig Brackins. I doubt this move signifies anything more than a desire for Collins to see how different groups mesh on the floor, but I did take something positive out of it.|

|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.|

If you're feeling a little too good about yourself, I highly recommend looking back to how you felt about this team a year ago after the first day of training camp.
|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.|

|Throughout the summer, I've been firmly planted on the negative side of the trade Iguodala for Melo debate. My logic has always been when you take the complete game into account, Melo is probably a slightly better player, but the difference between the two on the floor isn't worth the difference in salaries. I'd like to test the theory a bit, today.|

|We've identified the stats, we've examined their validity as recording stats and we've also taken a glimpse at their performance as predictors for the Sixers over the past four seasons. Today, we're going use the available data to see what each stat says about the 2010-2011 Sixers.|
Latest comment: from Joe2. You are overstating diminishing returns. Berri has plenty of posts up on the subject....
|In part one of the series we took a look at Wins Produced and Win Shares, then put them through their paces a bit in a retroactive way. Now it's time to test them out in a forward-looking way. Warning, math talk ahead.|
|If Elton Brand bounces back...If Evan Turner can turn into a legit number one...If Jrue Holiday makes a leap...If Spencer Hawes suddenly isn't a complete waste of space...If Andres Nocioni returns to his form of six seasons ago...If Doug Collins can get the front court to suddenly change their stripes and learn to defend. Pretty much every optimistic outlook on this team for 2010-2011 starts with one of those ifs. After the jump, and throughout the next couple of posts, we're going to take a look at what to expect if a miracle doesn't happen.|
|For the second time in as many weeks, the Sixers organization set up a conference call for a group of bloggers. This time, Rod Thorn was on the line and answered a bunch of our questions. Check after the jump for my notes.|
