Fantasy tip
Kenny Thomas
Thomas
Q: Who had more double-doubles than Yao Ming and Dirk Nowitzki, and as many as Ben Wallace? A: Kenny Thomas.

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.

Roster analysis
The starters: A.I. is healthy, but the rest of the team is sick -- in a bad way.
