    ET has been no better than Wright, who's been no better than ET. So maybe DC looks for a chemistry thing.

    It'll be an interesting exercise.
    Almost true.
    If you adjust Wright's numbers to Evan's minutes they'd be averaging the same amount of points and rebounds, but Evan would still edge him in assists (4 to 1), shooting percentages (40%/33%FG, 45%/ 36%3pt) and PER (14.8 to 9.8).

    Who's left to replace? Kwame. The guy who played the first 5:30 against Toronto then never returned, played 9 minutes for no points and no rebounds vs Cleveland, and is averaging the 10th most minutes on the team despite starting each of his 5 games. His only game with substantial minutes was 2 points (on 5 shots) and 6 rebounds in 24 minutes vs Utah. Decent enough D against Utah's bigs, but still only one barely passable game out of 5.
    It's pretty clear Doug hasn't been happy with Kwame - or at least not happy enough to give him any minutes.

    Who to replace him with? Well, Lavoy or Spencer - the former of which started in his place when he was out, the latter of which started all last year, and both of which Doug's talked about starting this season and have played almost twice as many minutes.

    There's absolutely a chance he swaps out ET, or even JRich or Thad - none would surprise me that much - but it takes some pretty strong willing blindness to the evidence to expect it to be anyone other than Kwame.

    I'm guessing ET's higher assists come while he runs the point...which he'd do off the bench anyway. Shooting percentage is no doubt attributed to consistent distance of the non-3 shooting. But overall, now that I think of it, ET's probably been more productive overall.

    But I do think DC might prefer Wright's energy and the fact he fits into their (undisciplined) halfcourt better. ET often becomes a black hole when he tries to force the issue. He has also never been involved in a fast break...which looked pretty good last night.

    Plus, I just believe DC doesn't like ET so much. Could be that incessant whining/crying/complaining.

    I know that's what does it for me.

    I believe its Kwame, sure...BUT Doug made it seem 'bigger' than that to me. Sitting Kwame isn't so much of a 'change'. It's a non-event. Not news.

    And that's why I think it's ET.

    No way it'll be Thad or JRich; both are DC favorites and have been pretty consistent. Both are energy guys, too, which Doug loves.

    Well, maybe, I definitely wouldn't be all that surprised if it was ET - many were predicting it even before the season. Guess we'll see.

    @preston76: Coach Collins tells media while he considered it, there will be no change to #Sixers starting line-up tonight at Cleveland.
    Oh. Well cool.

    Collins won't change starting lineup. "I'm giving them 1 more chance."

    I wonder how many chances "one more chance" means this season. Last season, if I recall correctly, it meant anywhere from zero to two or three.

    I hate ET stepping inside the line there. I know he can't hit the three from there very well, but it's still better value than a 22-foot two.
