Assuming he gets the nod in Philly as the starting 1.... How good can he be... Hes always gotten burn but this is his first shot to actually run the show.
Last year in 23-24 minutes per game he put up 12.8 ppg and 3 assists..Playing 30-35 minutes a gm if not more what is his ceiling for this season.. Can Lou put up 16 ppg and 5-6 assists.. Will he break out? Hes always had the ability to take over games the last 2 seasons, but how good can he be...
he has gotten better every year. (stats below)

he looks good 2 me i think they have a stud in there hand
This Guy Is Not a Playmaker in any sense.......ive seen him play before, he will try to score before he will dish to a teammate. He is a outstanding shooting guard, and can score at will, him a point guard will hurt the team
I had him on my fantasy team last year. When given the minutes, he really put up some solid numbers. I think he should come into his own this year as long as the 76ers let him play. And if you look, he got more minutes after the all star break and was real close to gettting 10+ assists in a number of games and was grabbing 5-6 rebounds a game. I like him as a player and I like him as a fantasy sleeper as well.
yes he will be the starter and i think he will help them get to the playoffs
i c gilbert in he's eyes
he might breakout this year and get most improved but like basketballguru24 said he isnt a true playmaker i think he can be a great scorer in this league but he isnt a true point guard given the right minutes he could have a steve francis type year but thats my opinion.
in case u didnt know what eddie jordan runs..
He will have good numbers but I dont see Philly in the playoffs.
I dont see them in the playoffs either but who knows because now every team has talent but it all about experience and chemistry now
Microwave said it best. He inherits the role Arenas had in Washington, but I dont see him lighting up the scoreboards like that. He could reasonably average about 17 or 18 a game though and about 6 assists. I think Philly has a better chance of making the playoffs then everyone thinks, because Elton Brand is back this season which should help if he's anywhere near 100% and I think he is.
3rd year in a row...
Elton needs to be traded, he doesnt fit their style of play.
Imagine if they could of have gotten Amare or Bosh instead of Brand...too bad its most likely not happening. Would of been fun team to watch.
