Philly Girl's Phantasy Corner: 76ers New Years Resolutions
« on: December 30, 2012, 09:14:27 PM »
The Philadelphia 76ers came into this season with reasonable expectations of becoming a championship contending team. This goal is not far fetched but with their ups and downs during the beginning of the 2012-2013 season, they need to make some changes and redefine certain goals to achieve the contending status this season.

Personnel Goals

 The first and primary concern is Andrew Bynum. He needs to play in the regular season, period. Granted he would get another big contract with that play but also because he would compliment nearly every other player on the Sixers, free most up as Bynum would most likely get a lot of double-teams, and the entire playbook would be modeled around him. He needs to play, period.

The second concern that I see is a solid backup for Jrue Holiday. Not that I want to plan on him being injured but this is a concern and especially in a long playoff run, we need to be certain that we have a solid PG behind Holiday just incase.

Shooting Goals

The 76ers are 25th in free throw percentage (72.5) and only get to the line an average of 18 times per game, second worst in the league. With a low free throw percentage and nearly worst in the league at drawing fouls, they need to penetrate deeper and ensure that they get more opportunities at the line to correct both of these statistics, and quickly.

Speaking of penetrating and drawing fouls, the young guns on the team need to start making smarter decisions when they have the ball and before they take a shot. The transition game is an area of comfort but the half-court play needs to be added to that list. For example their field goal percentage is a measly 23rd in the league and their shooting percentage is a marginal 43.8. Spencer Hawes gets carried away with too many long shots, Nick Young takes ill-advised shots from the outside, and Evan Turner can make better decisions on his shot selection. As a whole, these unnecessary shots add up to several wastes of possessions and missed points throughout the game.

Overall Goals

The Sixers need to define their play and do so with consistency. They have proven that they are capable of beating elite teams but have also showed their unrefined side with losses to the Pistons and Cavaliers. Their season started at 10-6, after losing 11 out of 15 and most notably a six-game losing streak, they need to redefine their rhythm and consistently play up to par. In conjunction, let's continue to see Holiday and Turner mature into their 'great' player roles as they both look to prove their worth.

"They read their sports pages, know their statistics and either root like hell or boo our butts off. I love it. Give me vocal fans, pro or con, over the tourist types who show up in Houston or Montreal and just sit there." óMike Schmidt, Hall of Fame third baseman for the Philadelphia Phillies :PHI:

  • Daddy: Last year Jared Goff was the worst QB ever drafted and couldn't play at the High School level.
    Yesterday at 01:03:41 PM
  • Daddy: And the Rams were an expansion team. At least that's what I remember reading.
    Yesterday at 01:04:24 PM
  • Daddy: This year friends and family are sending me texts msgs that say a lot of positive things about them both.
    Yesterday at 01:05:21 PM

    Yesterday at 01:09:23 PM
  • hockeygoon33: Goff looks alot better than last year and Im surprised they're number 1 in there division as of right now but the season just started so we'll see.
    Yesterday at 01:10:11 PM
  • Daddy: Flacco got paid off of Ray Lewis. After years to evaluate him, it's not too early to say that.
    Yesterday at 01:10:53 PM
  • Daddy: Nobody gave Goff a chance, he was prematurely rushed to judgement. He is still just 22 years old.
    Yesterday at 01:11:42 PM
  • hockeygoon33: Granted if I had to choose between Wentz and Goff I would have absolutely taken Wentz but your'e right.
    Yesterday at 01:14:01 PM
  • Daddy: Goff will be a 5 year vet by the time he is Wentz age right now.
    Yesterday at 01:18:22 PM
  • Daddy: I'm ok with the choice, I was then, and I am now. I think both teams should be happy with what they got, and go forward.
    Yesterday at 01:19:40 PM
  • hockeygoon33: Oh absolutely. I'm a Rams fan and am definitely willing to wait for him to take off!
    Yesterday at 01:27:26 PM
