|We're down to our final two Sixers in the Predicting 2010 series. I saved these two for last because the question of whose team is this looms large. Elton Brand, paid big money to come in here and take this team to the next level, or Andre Iguodala. Brand goes under the microscope after the jump.|
Latest comment: from Drew NannyGood post about home improvement. Occassionally, I will do a search for a good blog to read. I reckon I came upon one here....
|We're right in the middle of the fun part of the Predicting 2010 series. Today, Thad Young gets his turn. After the jump we'll project some stats and talk about the ever-expanding role of our starting small forward.|
|Meeting with the coach in Orlando. Showing up for team workouts at PCOM. A new attitude, a new work ethic. Will the new and improved Sam Dalembert show up for 82 games, or will he backslide? We'll try to sort it all out after the jump in today's portion of the Projecting 2010 Series.|
|The Sixers newest starting point guard, Lou Williams, is up today in the Predicting 2010 series. After the jump we'll talk about how extended minutes, a new role and the Princeton offense could/would/should affect Lou's game and his numbers.|
|Hopefully, this installment of the Predicting 2010 series won't be premature. I haven't seen anything from the team regarding the signing of Rodney Carney, but I'm going to toss him into the equation anyway. After the jump, we'll take a look at the stats, projections and try to figure out where he's going to fit in with this roster.|
|Good news for all Temple fans out there. The Sixers extended an invite to ex-Owl Dionte Christmas to participate in their training camp.|
|Today's edition of the Predicting 2010 Series will feature less comparative analysis and a whole lot more guesswork. Jrue Holiday is mostly an unknown heading into this season. There's no way to tell how good of player he'll be at only 19 years-old, and there's really no way to know how the Sixers plan to bring him along. After the jump, I'll try to piece together some projections.|
Latest comment: from BrianNope, Utah was 41-41 that season, didn't make the playoffs....
|The Carney signing threw off our schedule by a day, but this morning we'll pick up where we left off in the Predicting 2010 Series. It's Marreese Speights' turn today, and I'm expecting big things from the sophomore.|
|Tom Moore is reporting the Sixers will bring Rodney Carney back after a one-year Minnesota furlough. Carney will reportedly sign a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum ($855,189).|
|Today's player in the Predicting 2010 Series is none other than Jason Smith. The man the Sixers traded up to get in the 2007 draft, who saw his 2008-2009 season end before it began is back and apparently preparing to play a big role with the team this season. Stats, projections and analysis after the jump.|
|Today, Willie Green will go under the microscope for our Predicting 2010 series. I'm not sure how many different ways I can say, "This guy should not be playing," but I'm sure we'll find out after the jump.|
|Earlier this summer, Royal stuck his toe in the free agent waters, but quickly realized he had a good thing in Philly. He opted out of his deal, only to re-sign with the Sixers for the minimum. It's his turn today in the Predicting 2010 series. Projections and analysis after the jump.|
Latest comment: from JoeI remember Andre Miller playing the point effectively for 6 months... maybe that is just me....
|The Sixers lone free agent acquisition (to this point), Primoz Brezec, will be the focus of our second Predicting 2010 piece. After the jump we'll dive into the stats and the 7-footer's gangster roots.|
|The whole Depressed Fan family is on vacation for the next two weeks. Fear not, there will be regular updates here throughout, but I'm not sure how active I will be in the comments during the day. We'll kick off our Predicting 2010 series tomorrow with Jason Kapono. In the mean time, use this post to discuss any and all Sixers news. Enjoy your Monday, guys.|
|A couple of articles got caught by my filter over the past couple days about Lou Williams' confidence in stepping into the role of starting point guard, and e-mailed to me by loyal readers (thanks Dean). One blurb in particular caught my eye. Basically, Lou said he's going to be playing 30-35 minutes per night. I'm sure I realized that would be the case, but I hadn't really thought about it. Nor had I thought about how the minutes will be doled out at the guard positions. After the jump, I'm going to try to make an educated guess and see how Jrue fits in.|
