John Hollinger calls Jrue Holiday "The Jruth"

I'd be a little more excited if he didn't shortchange Holiday's triple-dub, but still like his taste in nicknames. "I'd be a little more enthusiastic if it wasn't the pathetic 11-10-10 variety of triple-double. I agree that The Jruth is one of the league's most promising young guards, but let's not cue up the Jason Kidd comparisons just yet."

Speights and Thad make John Hollinger's list of "Kevin Love All-Stars"

"Thus far, [Speights has] played only 76 minutes in eight games. The 23-year-old big man is one of his team's best young talents and should have a much more prominent role. [snip] Young has played only 21.0 minutes a game and is currently backing up Andres Nocioni; for the first two games he sat behind Jason Kapono. Since Young is shooting 58.2 percent and has been better than either Nocioni or Kapono since the day he entered the league, I find this more than a bit curious." -- John Hollinger

Lou Williams makes Hollinger's All-Breakout Team '10-'11

"Williams averaged a little better than a free throw for every three field goal attempts last season and still had a very solid 57.6 true shooting percentage; should that free throw number jump this season, as I suspect it will, he'll be one of the league's most efficient backcourt scorers." – Hollinger

Hollinger: Sixers Projections

Insider only Keep in mind these projections are per 40 minutes.

John Hollinger predicts 43 wins for the Sixers

"I do worry a bit about Collins' interactions with young players, but most of Philly's are far enough into their careers to benefit from his message without having their confidence crushed. Turner and Holiday are the exceptions, so one must hope Collins has mellowed enough to handle them with some care. If so, Philly could make one of the league's biggest improvements this season." Prediction: 43-39, 2nd in Atlantic Division, 7th in Eastern Conference
