2018/19 36ers or 2019/2020 36ers?

Is this a more talented team on paper than last years?

Mix of toughness, experience and defense yes. That wins games more than talent.

Still very talented.

But unknown imports such as Taylor and Griffin can surprise or disappoint.

Griffin looks like Wiley but with 5 more years of professional basketball experience.
He should be more reliable then Wiley was.
Hard to know how good the young PG will be so give Conger the edge.
Sobey and Deng have more talent then Dilion and White but they were both very random.
White and Dilion should be steadier and offer more experience and leadership.

Probably comes down to if Froling, Drimic and McVeigh can improve to cover the talent loss.
If they can then the added leadership and experience should help make the team more consistent.

So if Griffin and Taylor are decent then 3-5 range.

Still alot of vacancies in Perth and Cairns to be filled so it's hard to say how good this Adelaide team will be in comparison.

Allot with double l means to assign or allocate, eg the club will allot training sessions to each team.

Alot with a single word is an emerging word:
2004, The Cambridge Guide to English Usage also compares alot to awhile. It states alot to be "still regarded as nonstandard" and notes 50 appearances in the British National Corpus, “almost entirely from three sources: e-mail, TV autocue data, and TV newscripts.” It suggests that some usages of alot in typewritten use are to be considered merely typos of the standard a lot though its appearance in handwriting and typescript is “more significant, as the shadow of things to come.”

Given the usage in an online sports discussion forum, it could be argued that Hogwash is simply following established precedent. He is a harbinger of the future of the English language.

A real PG will go a long way. Especially one who plays defence.
Much more balanced team.

We can't know for sure until we see the imports play, but on paper this team looks better balanced and more experienced. Sobey is a big loss in some ways, but he also was not a good fit with Moore and as a point guard was largely a negative for his team-mates production. I have a lot of confidence that Froling will make an impact and I think Drmic and McVeigh will improve too.
