Let's forget about the high-priced free agents out there on their recruiting tours. What is done is done! Definitely will be alot of turnover around the league, especially in the Eastern Conference. Looking at our Division, Boston is getting up there in age, Toronto is losing their best player in Bosh and most likely the Knicks & the Nets will bring in a few new players, not named Lebron or Wade anytime soon. Boston is still the elite team in the division, but the rest of the teams in the division should be evenly matched. Good or Bad for future success, in my opinion the Sixer's have a realistic shot to make there way back into the postseason:
-A real, experienced veteran Head Coach who preaches defense.
-A franchise type player was drafted in Evan Turner. Time will tell if he will either become just a good player or a all-star in this league.
-Team Depth is better than it has been in many seasons. Who knows how the starting lineup will shake out, especially at PF & C positions, but our bench should be very strong, as well as several players who can fill in as starters when injuries occur.
-Rebounding, Shot Blocking & Long distance shooting is a concern, but if the team plays together, they can more than hold their own.
-Look for several players to rebound from poor seasons and some young players to take that next step in their development.
-Being from the NY Area, I would love to see both the Knicks & Nets at the bottom of the division with all this cap money that they obtained.
