I don't follow the NBA too closely, but isn't it too early to call Turner a bust?
A little early, but I don't think he'll ever be the scorer they thought he was going to be. He'll still be a productive player though. He can do a little bit of everything which is valuable. The 2010 draft wasn't that great anyway. The only guy you can make a case for is Demarcus Cousins who seemed like he was in the running for the #2 pick but people questioned his character (and still do).
I said it before Holiday's going to have a big year. Apparently he just signed an extension 4 years $41 million. Ty Lawson was the pick after Holiday in 09 and he just signed a 4 yr $48 million deal. In comparison, this is a really good deal. Holiday is 3 years younger.
Would it be safe to say that Turner is similar to JvR in that both draft classes were weak overall and if these players were taken a little later in the draft they wouldn't be considered potential busts?
overall we won, thats big i cant tell you how many games sixers blew in 4th last 2 years, especially collins first season.
hawes yes did well, also hit a 3 which was suprise.
my biggest question or concern is if anyone saw the first qtr, they at times looked very good, but then they get into this oh were good we can do anything and then made some very bad turnovers, horrible shot choices and im like ok here are the usual sixers.
But it's game 1, team trying to get chemistry and a feel. I think doug will clean alot of the bad stuff up a bit, and will see how they do sunday and monday with a home and home vs the NYK. Sunday actually is a 12pm start @ MSG on CSN.
Also I got NBA LP i watched a few other games and flipped around during halftime and after game was over. This of all the sports packages is the only one that gives you the TV, online, and mobile for 1 price.
I know it is the first game of the year, but they just held the highest scoring team in the league last year to 75 points. I think this team without Bynum is going to have problems scoring but they will be in just about every game with the way they defend.
