We were stunned when the Sixers let Andre Miller walk so easily this summer. We were even more shocked when they passed on Ty Lawson and Eric Maynor, two PGs who could’ve made immediate impacts, for Jrue Holiday in the Draft. The 76ers were sure that Lou Williams could shift over to the PG spot. So sure they didn’t hedge their bet on it at all.
“[T]he experiment failed.
Experiment Lou Williams Point Guard has been unsuccessful for more than one reason. It will be abandoned.
The reasons for failure?
Williams was promoted to starting point guard within an offense that clearly doesn’t fit his style, or the styles of his teammates. In essence, he was given the keys to a lemon; the engine just wouldn’t turn over for him.”
If that wasn’t bad enough, now the question is: Will Lou Williams be able to readjust to being a spark off the bench next season, or has he been spoiled?
