Click for full story. I've been thinking about this question for a while, but it's a good time to write something about it given Brian's post from earlier today. We hear this stated authoritatively all the time by Sixer fans of varying degrees of understanding: "Andre Iguodala is not a shooting guard." Even Doug Collins stated yesterday that Iguodala's natural position is small forward. But practically speaking, what is the difference between a shooting guard and and a small forward? And do all great shooting guards have to be great shooters? My thoughts after the jump.

Click for full story. Kate Fagan's article this morning talks a lot about a glaring need for the Sixers, a shooting guard. This is nothing new, and the past two games illustrate the difference having a capable spot-up shooter can make to the other players who will most likely be on the team next season. Here's my question to you: Why does the perimeter threat have to come from the shooting guard?

Click for full story. Three weeks ago, I chronicled a disturbing trend of Thad Young's decreased contributions in the second half of games. Little did I know that a week later, he'd disappear completely. He still on the floor, sometimes too much, but he's been a complete drain on the team. After the jump, a look at how bad he's been, and maybe why.

Click for full story. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 41% from three in 2010 (32/78). The new year is now five games old and while the Sixers stretch of exemplary shooting from downtown has been a pleasant surprise, what's downright shocking is that Jason Kapono hasn't hit a single bomb since New Year's Eve.

Click for full story. During today's introductory press conference, Eddie Jordan avoided a minefield. He was bombarded with questions about the team's lack of shooting. Jordan's answer was that he was brought in to make the roster he's given better. To make the shooters on the team better. After the jump, we'll take a look at a few players he's coached before, and see if this might not be an impossible mission.

Click for full story. As I was updating the Four Factors worksheet this morning, something jumped out at me right away. When you see a four-game losing streak, you automatically assume the team has just been playing horrible basketball. That's really not the case. In fact, if you go all the way back to the Nets game on Jan. 31 (the 0/18 game), the Sixers have dominated every single area of the game, all but one, that is. Shooting.

Click for full story. To be honest, the shot chart above does not look like it belongs to a winning team. It looks like it belongs to a cellar dweller. That, my friends, is the Sixers' team shot chart through 51 games. After the jump we'll take a look at why there is so much blue and gray on the court, who's to blame, and what shots the Sixers should be looking to create after the break to sprinkle in some more red.
