Thats not a bad deal, but it's still not great. Between the two trades they didn't improve at all. I can't see them being anywhere near as good as they were last year. I think New York will be right up with them this year.

looks like philly is goin a lineup like

5- Mutombo
4- Geiger/Harpring
3- Lynch/Bell
2- Iverson
1- Snow/McKie

two 7 footers at pf and c, should be at least top 5 in east. plus iverson...

how we match up?

5- Camby
4- Thomas/Harrington
3- Sprewell/Rice
2- Houston
1- Jax/Ward

at c camby with new added weight could be more of a force than mutombo, mutombo is strong but not shaq strong, i think cambys quickness and newfoudn strength will beat mutombo. thomas and harrington can handle geiger. geiger doesnt post up, jus shoots the outside jumper and cant really run the floor. spre is better offensively than lynch, but doesnt matter, spres gonna defend iverson and lynch is gonna defend hosuton anyway. iverson will be iverson, and jax/ward i think is worse than mckie/snow. its pretty evened up, but i think phillys main fault is that thye gave up tyrone hil for matt harpring basically. now, besides mutombo, no one to crash teh boards with power. geiger is not exactly a board crasher.

the latest trades that philly has made will do a couple of things. Philly will have the same problems that they had in the middle of last year... nobody will score besides iverson. Jones was starting to show some potential as a scorer but now he is gone. People are saying that philly wanted to get harpring to get the outside shooter they desperately needed. But the way that philly plays, lynch will be getting most of the pt since his d is far superior to harprings. They will miss the leadership of hill, but that is easily be replacable with lynch, mckie, and snow. If moiso does start, philly will be a team that runs a lot more since they will be creating more turnovers (block shots) and will be able to get rebounds and get quick outlet passes. Philly's entire season will rely on two things: is moiso ready to be a full time contribture, and how much pt will harpring get. If moiso cannot step in right away it will be geiger. Geiger is a washed up scrub who's good days are far behind him.
