Depth and Roster Observations

So now sixers fans, we not only have a dominant bigman and a #1 scoring threat (who is going to be the tallest player on the floor 90% of the time) but we still have incredible depth. Look at our projected starting 5:

1. Jrue

2.) J. Rich

3.) Dorrell Wright

4.) Hawes/Lavoy

5.) Mandrew Bynum

With this 5, we have an allstar center, a borderline allstar point guard, A legitimate scoring threat at 2, a 3 capable of dropping double digit points a game, and a 4 that is going to put up moderate points and grab 7-8 boards a game. It isn't insane but it is much more scoring-potent then last year in exchange for a little bit of defense. Now look at our top reserves:

1.) Evan Turner/Maalik?

2.) Nick Young

3.) Thad

4.) Lavoy/Moultrie

5.) Kwame/Hawes

I would argue that the nightshift is still very much intact and with Lou gone, the ball will be in Evan's Hand to make plays alot more out of the Point Guard/Point Forward spot. Sure we lose some BOSSy shots but I think our bench is still top 5 next season and will dominate opposing teams' second stringers routinely.

The bottom line is this: Were way better overall going into this year then we were last year. Were due to gain Much more scoring prowess in exchange for a little bit of defensive stinginess. The most important thing to remember for this upcoming season is we were trying to 1.) Be as successful with our current roster as Humanly possible in order to 2.) Convince Andrew Bynum to stay long term and attract 1 more Monster Free Agent next season when We got $$$ to spend forming a championship contender for 4-5 years.

Yaysies!
