76ers at a glance
Jim O'Brien said he wanted to coach Allen Iverson. Think he'll be happy his wish came true a year from now?
A.I. figures to enjoy being back at the point, but his body took a beating last year -- he missed 34 games -- and life doesn't get any easier when you're running the floor.
Philly's still got the Big Dog and some decent young talent. Even so, don't be startled if the sixers miss the playoffs for the second year in a row.
|The starters: A.I. is healthy, but the rest of the team is sick -- in a bad way.|
|PF||Kenny Thomas||Lil' Kenny (6-foot-7) killed on the boards (10.1 rpg, 3.5 on O)||7|
|SF||Glenn Robinson||Big Dog came up kinda small (career-worst 16.6 ppg)||6|
|C||Samuel Dalembert||The Haitian sensation is a shotblocking machine||6|
|SG||Willie Green||Smoking hot in summer league; that's why Snow was traded||6|
|PG||Allen Iverson||Media guide says 29; body says 39. Career-worst 38.7 percent FG||9|
|BENCH||Aaron McKie and Kevin Ollie: vet leaders. Corliss Williamson and Brian Skinner: undersized tough guys. Andre Iguodala: first-rounder with huge upside.||6|
