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:

    Today at 10:25:32 AM
  • Brent: No problem Gilly.  Cut some of that stuff out, eat non processed food, veggies, meat, eggs and you'll feel wonderful.  Drink lots of water.

  • Gilly: Release:  LB Parys Haralson, $0.9m (2014)   $0.9m     this is a fine example of how to do it :)
    Today at 10:37:09 AM
  • Gilly: Release:  Haralson    is a fine example of how NOT to
    Today at 10:37:32 AM
  • Gilly: lol
    Today at 10:37:45 AM
  • Gilly: this is my rant and i feel better now
    Today at 10:37:53 AM
  • Corey: jnorris your up in MB draft
    Today at 10:44:27 AM
  • Gilly: Is there a way to make the 3 pages of transactions show on one page?
    Today at 10:45:53 AM
  • OUDAN: Gilly you are the man for doing all that sir
    Today at 10:46:22 AM
  • OUDAN: Also still not ok with this orange name crap
    Today at 10:46:42 AM
  • Brent: Gilly, are you ranting about someone I released?
    Today at 10:47:11 AM
  • Gilly: no Im using your proper posting as an example of how to post
    Today at 10:47:31 AM
  • Gilly: there are guys posting just last names and than I have to go back to roster, check rules and than come back to the post to check the proper buy out amount lol
    Today at 10:47:58 AM
  • Brent: I think it is a child board setting.  The first transaction board never even went to page 2, but the child boards don't display as many.
    Today at 10:48:01 AM
  • Gilly: guess Im just being a lazy ass lol
    Today at 10:48:07 AM
  • Brent: Yeah, I know what you mean Gilly.  Makes it harder when the contract is not with the name.
    Today at 10:48:22 AM
  • Gilly: or not posting positions, its just time consuming when I can bust out stuff faster when guys properly post is all
    Today at 10:48:48 AM
  • Brent: Took leave today to do homework.
    Today at 10:48:50 AM
  • Gilly: no biggie, im just being a baby lol
    Today at 10:49:04 AM
  • OUDAN: Never Gilly!
    Today at 10:49:21 AM
  • Gilly: yeah never me lol
    Today at 10:50:26 AM
  • Brent: Gilly, League Safe is charging a late fee for payments.  I guess that is okay.
    Today at 10:51:03 AM
  • Gilly: lol really, whats the charge
    Today at 10:51:37 AM
  • OUDAN: I hope league safe is better then sportsvault
    Today at 10:52:31 AM
  • Brent: $10
    Today at 10:52:45 AM
  • Gilly: is that per month
    Today at 10:53:15 AM
  • Brent: League Safe seems to be better, but very rigid in its rules.  Dosn't seem very commissioner friendly to fix issues.
    Today at 10:53:18 AM
  • Brent: I don't know, it just says late penalty $10 and adds it right in.  I don't even know where the late penalty goes.
    Today at 10:53:46 AM
  • Brent: I actually have another idea.  Maybe we just use League Safe for the funds that are there, then use ProFSL PayPal for the rest to keep people from having to pay a late fee.
    Today at 10:54:31 AM
  • OUDAN: Hmmmm I say back to paypal lol
    Today at 10:54:54 AM
  • OUDAN: Cant beat paypal IMO
    Today at 10:55:17 AM
  • Gilly: Im good with whatever everyone wants thats easier and gets it done quicker
    Today at 10:55:25 AM
  • Brent: Just read through some of their Q&A and people's comments.  Other customers are blowing them up with the late fee, really negative replies on there b/c of their late fee.
