Coach of the Month!

Posted in 76ers, Player News with tags , , , , on March 4, 2011 by derrickmslayton

In February the Sixers won 9 out of 12 games in February the best record they have had in a month since 2003. Also Doug Collins had the Sixers riding high on a 4 game winning streak before they lost a close game to the Dallas Mavericks. Do not let the record in February record be the only thing that you appreciate Collins for. His system has made Andre Igoudala a better player forget about what the stats say, Iggy has taken more of a leadership role and sets a great example on defense as well as the offense. Also Evan Turner has gotten much better under Coach Collins’ tutelage as he shot a season high field goal percentage in the month of February. Nobody thought that the Sixers would be good especially after their 3-13 start, however Doug Collins has these young Sixers playing good basketball and if they keep it up Doug Collins will win the Coach of the Year award.
