Yeah too much focus on Gibson. I think we all know what Gibbo brings at this point in his career. He's an important glue guy, but its the performance of the imports that will largely decide how successful this season is for the Sixers.
They've got to get significant scoring out of Montreal and Wilson needs to show he can wind the clock back about three seasons.
Other important factors:
1) Schenscher and Petrie have to remain fit because without them defence and rebounding is going to be awfully thin on the ground.
2) Creek needs to step up his scoring, rebounding and defence this season. The time for him to show if he is starter material is now.
Sixth place at worst I think, as Sydney and the 'Gong don't strike a lot of fear into me. If both imports play well and injuries are kept to a minimum, I think the Sixers can make the playoffs, but it'll be first round and no farther this season.
