A year ago, it was easy to describe and analyze the 76ers’ potential style of play. Everybody within the city limits, at least those paying even just a little bit of attention, knew the Sixers would run the Princeton Offense, knew the plan was to have five interchangeable offensive parts, knew that it was a read-and-react style, and knew that – in all likelihood – it was probably ill-suited for this roster.
The Sixers won 27 games.
This year, the Sixers aren’t quite as easy to predict; there’s no gimmick offense to write 100 stories about. New coach Doug Collins has had a few months to talk to his guys, work with those staying in town for the summer, and get a handle on what style might be best for this talent. With less than a week before the opening of training camp, it’s probably time to at least put together a general idea of how Collins will have these guys playing.
