The whole 2011-2012 season, Sixer fans have been waiting for the day that the Sixers would trade away Iguodala. He has great trade value, and he isn’t the “star” player that we are looking for. The problem now is, I feel as if the Olympics are going to interfere with him being traded. Not only would it be an awful time to trade him, but if he does good it may open up the eyes of our front office. Im worried that if Iggy has a good Olympic run, that we will be like, “Oh, he is awesome and we should definitely keep him!”
That should not in any way be the case. We can’t keep a guy based on his performances in a couple weeks play, over what he has done for the last few years. The Sixers can get such a better piece if we trade Iggy, especially if we throw in a mediocre player like Vucevic.
Now, the Sixers announced that Spencer Hawes would be starting as a PF, and Brown will be our starting C. This news just is death to my ears. Why in the world would the Sixers start not one, but two bad big men!? This is just berserk. Hopefully after 1 or 2 games into the season, Collins will see how bad of an idea that is. Also, I’m hoping that Ivey can become a key player of the bench, something he was not during his last stint with the Sixers. What do you think about Iggy’s trade possibilities? And about Brown and Hawes starting?
