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:

    Yesterday at 07:06:45 PM
  • Jonathan: should of been included in Eaton deal. Price probably too high.
    Yesterday at 07:09:41 PM
  • RyanJames5: I don't think they'll deal Quintana. He's the perfect "veteran presence" for what will be an incredibly young rotation.
    Yesterday at 07:20:21 PM
  • RyanJames5: Deal Frazier and Robertson and wrap up a great off season.

    Yesterday at 07:56:53 PM
  • Jonathan: Moncada, Collins and Basabe are the hitters
    Yesterday at 07:57:46 PM
  • Anthony: You can't keep Abreu
    Yesterday at 08:02:48 PM
  • Anthony: Too valuable and old for what the Sox are doing right now. If you trade Eaton, you trade Abreu and keep Quintana
    Yesterday at 08:11:14 PM
  • chrisetc21: Agree, keep Quintana, trade Abreu
    Yesterday at 08:12:56 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: Abreu's value is probably not nearly as high as Quintana's
    Yesterday at 08:19:27 PM
  • ldsjayhawk: lots of 1B/DH, very little pitching
    Yesterday at 08:19:43 PM
  • Anthony: Well yeah, Quintana is younger and cheaper, but thats a guy you can build around
    Yesterday at 08:31:23 PM
  • Jonathan: Quintana and Sale are same age
    Yesterday at 08:57:52 PM
  • Jonathan: Abreu's value dropped a lot when he opted out. He is set to get paid more now.
    Yesterday at 09:07:37 PM
  • Jonathan: WIth the money saved in adding Eaton over Cutch, I wonder if Aroldis is headed to the capital now.
    Yesterday at 09:20:33 PM
  • Anthony: I thought he was younger. Wow. Still you won't get a sale package for him so you should hold onto him
    Yesterday at 10:14:28 PM
  • Jonathan: Chapman went to Yankees

  • ldsjayhawk: isn't there a place to restrict owners from switching players to and from the minors in Fantrax?

  • Jonathan: premium is suppose to support that feature.
