Post All-Star Break Predictions for the Philadelphia 76ers
USA TODAY Sports
So far, Jrue Holiday has been the only bright spot in an otherwise disastrous season for the Sixers.

Sometimes, it’s good to recalibrate.

For the Philadelphia 76ers this season, the only constant has been change. From starting the year with a revamped roster to the epidemic of injuries leading to the carousel of starting lineups and 10-day contracts, it’s been frustrating to say the least.

For coach Doug Collins, it has become a routine recalibration, full of shuffling men in and out of the rotation, full of trial and error. Mostly error.

The end result thus far has been nothing short of a disappointment.

On the flip side, however, yours truly made some predictions before the New Year which did not completely disappoint. One came to fruition (Jrue Holiday making the All-Star Game) and one sort of did (Spencer Hawes did reclaim his starting role—as a center—and has stepped up).

Three others are TBD: Andrew Bynum’s pending return and contract situation, a trade deadline acquisition and winning a round in the playoffs.

With the benefit of hindsight—and at least a faint ability of foresight—I now reserve the right to do my own recalibrating.
