Kyle Korver is gone. The Ed Stefanski reign as GM has begun. He has moved to the dark side with his 1st personnel change. He could have waited all season with a pass and not make a move. But now he has put his own stamp on this team. Too bad for Kyle. He's a nice kid. I liked the move to acquire him in the 03 draft. The Sixers acquired him from the Nets for cash (think Ed new 'bout Korver then). Kyle had excepted his role as the 5th year veteran and bench player. He was certainly a fan favorite. But he is what we thought he was. He will never be more than he is right now. A good player ... a good guy, but not a star. So I'm okay with his departure.Good luck to 'em.
What about Gordan Giricek? I'm sorry to say I don't know too much about him. I know what kind of game the Jazz play. A 5 year pro from Croatia should be able shoot the ball. Not a star. But it doesn't matter. Its not about Giricek. It's about his contract. Which expires at the end of the season. The Sixers resigned Korver in 05. Stefanski's clearing some cap space and announcing to the league he intends to be a playa in this summer's free agent market.
There's a new sheriff in town. Philly fans take note!
Hey Ed? Can you come down to marketing? We need to know what we're gonna do with all these #26 jerseys.
