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:

  • RyanJames5: It can be necessary in leagues that have bid limits but that hasn't come into play. That's the only reason for it to be ok IMO

  • RyanJames5: Or I guess if you're on for the first time in 48 hours but for most that's not the case.

  • indiansnation: Chrisetc sorry if i did that to u i didnt even notice it
    Yesterday at 10:38:09 PM
  • RyanJames5: 24 wouldn't make any difference with late bids though. It would probably make it worse
    Yesterday at 10:38:34 PM
  • indiansnation: I hate that crap. If someone does that they should have to pay 2m more to do it
    Yesterday at 10:39:30 PM
  • Mets Donations Accepted: No but I think you'd see guys cleared out quicker. I'm just thinking of how to move it along and not have guys sit up there for a week-10 days at a time

  • RyanJames5: Only reason I'm not really pissed is Castillo was probably a stupid bid for me anyway. I already may have 2 starting catchers and no starting 1B or 3B. I know I won't be in contention.
    Yesterday at 10:41:17 PM
  • RyanJames5: I'd be in favor of a rule that limited it, but I just haven't seen one that really makes sense. Just irks me because I wouldn't do it to someone.  I'm on often enough that if I haven't bid on someone in the first 35-40 hours I don't need to

  • Jonathan: buyout rules prevent overpaying, for the most part. I am sure that will not apply to Mr. Trout
    Yesterday at 11:04:29 PM
  • chrisetc21: yeah, abl rules are much different
    Yesterday at 11:06:01 PM
  • RyanJames5: Haha I'm very interested to see what he ends up at. The Expos and all the cap will be a player.
    Yesterday at 11:06:33 PM
  • indiansnation: Not going for alot in abl this yr plus i got 35m to spend on my team
    Yesterday at 11:07:24 PM
  • indiansnation: Still got 21m left

  • Jonathan: Got 17 open spots in MLB alone, on this team I am renting. 1 guy won't solve my problems.
    Yesterday at 11:11:32 PM
  • RyanJames5: Yeah expos are in similar shape. Other than Trout I'm looking to fill spots on short contracts so that I can continue to build the minors.
    Yesterday at 11:25:04 PM
  • chrisetc21: Trading me Bregman will help you build your minors, bigly, hugely
    Yesterday at 11:26:38 PM
  • Jonathan: wow, 6M for 5 yrs for Gurriel? I see what you guys are talking about, even the Real Jays didn't offer that.
    Yesterday at 11:30:33 PM
  • chrisetc21: better hope he's not the next Rusney Castillo
    Yesterday at 11:32:54 PM
  • RyanJames5: Haha he's not untouchable, but it would take a ton For Bregman
    Yesterday at 11:52:40 PM
  • RyanJames5: Yeah I'd have given Gurriel a big bonus, because I'd get it all back, but no way I'd pay him like that yearly
    Yesterday at 11:53:17 PM
  • chrisetc21: I got at least three tons in my minors
    Yesterday at 11:54:32 PM
  • chrisetc21: ;)

  • Jonathan: Sox could manage with Rusneys contract given their payroll. Must be nice to blow 72M though
    Yesterday at 11:55:22 PM
  • RyanJames5: Your minors is just stupid
    Yesterday at 11:56:04 PM
  • RyanJames5: Feel free to send an offer on him. You definitely have plenty to get a deal done
    Yesterday at 11:57:24 PM
  • chrisetc21: alright, i sent you a pm before but you didn't answer, figured you weren't moving him
    Yesterday at 11:59:00 PM
