now im not gonna complain about this offseason because its been amazing. but i have one thing i need to say.

ever since jason smith got hurt there is one thing this team doesnt have: a 7-footer.

jason smith was prolly my favorite player on the team last season, so im really mad he got hurt, so i still think the sixers need to add a legit 7-foot center with some size/strength to the roster.

is lorenzen wright available? i know hes not that good, but we need size and strength. or any other guys u can think of?

Who cares, we have guys who are 1 and 2 inches below 7', not much of a difference really, just because he isn't exactly 7'. 1-2 inches of a difference in height is overrated.

That's what I think, too. Yeah, height is definitely important. But wingspan and hops can make up a lot of that. I'd rather have athletic 6'-11" guys with long wing spans than flat footed 7-footers.

Yeah this team is what it is. Having a "seven footer" is a bit overrated. Like FKD said, as long as you have athletic players close to that height, your team will be fine.

Who cares if we dont have a 7 footer? Dalembert is 6'11, 1 inch off of 7 feet tall.
If he all of the sudden grew 1 inch, would you be typing this? No, you wouldn't

Having a 7fter means nothing really. Just size.
Dalembert isn't 7ft but he blocks shots. So why bother?

I agree with everyone else, and isnt this just another one of those "who's left" threads right after we sign someone???

Closed.
