Living in PA i get all the sixers game on TV thanks to Comcast so needless to say I watch a lot of sixers games. When they went to the finals they had all the pieces in place and their game plan was simple. Chemistry, Defense and Iverson. It worked. Last year I couldn't tell as much. They brought in new faces in DC and Harpring. Although they got more talent they lost out on chemistry and defense. They drafted Dalembert who I think will be a good player and Brown who could be good and Jones a big body. Then Brown doesn't play them and you have to wonder if he will just let them develope in another city (thomas, bradley, hughes, stack). This year they draft some euro then trade him for some draft picks, USE THE PICK IT WAS A DEEP DRAFT. They then trade Speey for Salmons. I know Speedy just plain didn't fit in with Iverson but wouldn't you think they could get something better in return. I am still waiting for them to adress thier needs: offense and athletes. When will they? Hopefully soon becuase sixers games become more painful to watch each year. I am a Kings fan but I also root for the hometown 6ers. I'm just hoping they get better, draft smarter and play some of the young guys. If AI doesn't play next year (he will IMO) I truly beleive they would be easily the worst team in the East and that would be a shame.
