Philadelphia 76ers 2006-07 Preview

The 2006/07 76ers team can not depend on their two superstars, but on their two or three young roles. It is not questionable that Allen Iverson and Chris Webber are good attackers, but both are aging and require more support from their other teams to continue winning games. Maurice Cheeks's head coach is disappointing to finish last year, leaving the team in the playoffs and full of holes.

Allen Iverson was nothing more than a career scoring, and last season there was nothing else. The 33 points were ranked second in the game for only Kobe Bryant, and almost reached the 76th in the playoffs. Unfortunately for other teams, Iverson usually gets too many shots. The 25.3 shot was three times as many games as his opponent Andre Iguodala. If you are approaching 20 and increasing numbers, the team will benefit.

Inside is another veteran scorer in Chris Webber. Webber also makes one game with 19 games. However, he is not as effective in scoring as the average of the points is just above 20.2. To be successful, the 76ers really have to emphasize to Chris that they need more passes and fewer shots. They should be less than two male show and one team.

Among the two major figures of the 76s are talented young men like Andre Iguodala, Kyle Korver and Samuel Dalember. Iguodala is a great defender who is still extending his offensive play. If this season looks more like Iverson and Webber, you can count on increasing production. Samuel is a solid center with a great deal to stay healthy. It can easily be a double-double threat in the future. And eventually Korver is a deep threat that he can not do much else. Apart from these five players, the 76ers do not really have any big threats to the table.

Due to the lack of depth of their two leaders and their bullet-teasing tendencies, it is difficult to see that the 76ers are much better than last season's 38 victory seasons. They have the ability to design the playoffs, as likely as they are to miss. As mentioned earlier, their ultimate destiny depends on how well players support the season.
