Adam Aron: Doug Collins Under No Pressure from Sixers Management
"Two mediocre seasons. One massive shart season. Inefficient basketball. Kwame Brown. Sure, ownership. Give him free reign."
The Sixers Have the Worst Twitter of All Time
I think Mike be a _little_ harsh here but then I think back to tweets like: "Charles Jenkins knocks down the pull-up jumper in transition. #Sixers 66, Clippers 91 w/ 4:30 to play."
(Zach Lowe on Evan Turner in his 10 Things column) - Grantland
"The development of a corner 3 is officially the only good thing about Turner's third NBA season. His overall shooting has dropped off, and his numbers are either down or stagnant across the board. That stagnancy extends to the defensive end, where Turner's slow first step makes him vulnerable to blow-bys and results in close-outs that are often just a beat too late on the perimeter. Turner's tendency to play guys ultratight on the perimeter doesn't help on the blow-by front, since they have so little distance to cover in order to drive past him.
There is a helpful and skilled player in here somewhere. We just haven't seen it yet on a consistent basis."
Fiasco: The Philadelphia Adventure with Evan Turner
"Turner has become not merely a bad, but a profoundly inefficient offensive player. Yes, he takes a lot of midrange shots and hits them at a typically poor rate, but when he attacks the basket, he’s almost as bad: on drives he’s one of the least effective players in the sport. In three NBA seasons, he’s yet to post a PER over 13 or a WS/48 over 0.7. His WARP for his first two years in the league was -2.6, and he’s currently, after a promising start, having the worst season of his career—his win shares and wins produced per minute are both at their nadir. In 2012-13, in what was supposed to be a breakout campaign, the swingman has gotten worse each month. In March he’s averaging 10.7 ppg on 39.5 percent shooting and is below his season averages in rebounds and assists."
