For a LB coming, there’s a CW leaving

As much as we dislike our new (?) “executive vicepresident” (?????? WTF an executive vice president does, exactly? only in the US…) Larry Brown, seems that we are moving in the right direction.
Last move? Buying Chris Webber out. He is apparently giving back 5 millions out of the 43 that Sixers would owe him until june 2008 to become immediately a free agent. This, on the other side, allow Sixers to get some cap space, and luxury tax relief.
Honestly, as fans, we don’t give a damn about the waste of money, because it’s not ours. But what does this (good) move tell us? That Snider and Billy King are on the same page about totally being in a rebuilding process now. That we don’t care about trying to win games this year (assuming that THIS Webber would have helped us in winning more games). That we realized that clearing cap space and give this team to the young players is the only way to resurrect.
Now what’s left to do? Our opinion:
1) KEEP CHEEKS until the end of the year: that’s the best way to lose games. More losses = more ping pong balls. Many ping pong balls = Oden or Durant. Then, find a new coach. And please notice that we are saying ‘new’…
2) KEEP ANDRE MILLER, this year, and the year to come. He’s a great PG and he will make Igoudala, Korver and even Dalembert continue to improve (see our last games). He has to be a piece of the future Sixers
3) buy the bum Ollie out, and give Louis Williams Ollie’s minutes. Let’s see if the young kid has some game
yes we know that some months ago we made a post “Keep Webber. And play him”. We changed our opinion. The scenario is totally different now and King made a good decision. As long as he’s not paying the cheques…
