Making this quick before leaving for the weekend (maybe I’ll be able to update the post later, with all the sums etc).
Ok, it’s a given that this is a pretty young team, with some veteran presence only in the back up department.
So I tried to check our players’ playoffs experience, making a small research through the years.
My source has mainly been Basketball reference and here is what I found.
SPEIGHTS, IVEY: 0 playoffs games played.
Barely a surprise: the first is a rookie, the second sucks (LOL) and has always played for bad teams (feel free to add the Sixers to this category).
YOUNG, WILLIAMS: 6 playoffs game played (2-4 record)
They were members of 2007/2008 Sixers, that were eliminated by Pistons, 2-4.
IGUODALA, DALEMBERT, GREEN: 11 playoffs games played (3-8 record).
They were members of two Sixers teams that made it to the postseason, in 2004/2005 with Jim O’Brien, and in 2007/2008 with Maurice Cheeks. Sixers lost to Pistons in both occasions, 1-4 in 2004 and 2-4 in 2008.
MILLER: 21 playoffs games played (5-16 record)
Here is the recap of his career in the postseason:
- 2004 (Denver Nuggets), lost 1-4 in the first round to Minnesota
- 2005 (Denver Nuggets), lost 1-4 in the first round to Spurs
- 2006 (Denver Nuggets), lost 1-4 in the first round to the LA Clippers (LOL)
- 2008 (Philadelphia Sixers), lost 2-4 in the first round to the Pistons
(uhm, I think I gave some strong arguments to his critics, LOL) Read the rest of this entry »
