New Year – New You…76ers edition

Every year as the calendar rolls over to January of a new year, we humans like to take this as a fresh start in a certain area or two. Known as New Year’s Resolutions, this tradition is honored and applied worldwide. We turned to some of #SixersTwitter to find out what they think should be some resolutions of the our favorite NBA personalities.

Ben Simmons

@RYN_JAY and @ TravisBarkerson want Ben to shoot with his right hand. Personally, I want Ben to shoot more often (either hand) from 5 – 10 feet.

Joel Embiid

@DanSaysThat wants Joel to stop pump-faking from the top of the key.

Markelle Fultz

@_MattFalk_ wants to see Markelle Fultz figure it out in 2019. Don’t we all, Matt? Don’t we all?

Brett Brown

@Tweets_By_Zo wants to see what Brett Brown can do with a complete roster.

@WePhila wants to see less Brett Brown bashing in the new year.

Zhaire Smith

@mrcrockpot wants to see Zhaire Smith gain weight in 2019.

TJ McConnell

@CarsonFentz wants TJ McConnell to chill with the hair-cuts and let it flow in 2019.

Jimmy Butler

I want to see Jimmy Butler scoring more often in 2019. With this roster, there is no reason for him not to score 20+ every night.

Wilson Chandler

I’d like to see Wilson Chandler foul less often in 2019.

JJ Redick

I would like to see JJ Redick make more layups in the new year.

Landry Shamet

I want Landry to show some versatility in 2019. Seems like he is currently just a 3-point specialist right now. Want to see some evolution.

Fan Base

@mrcrockpot wants to control his anxiety regarding the fan base when the Sixers lose a game and everyone wants to fire Brett Brown.

Elton Brand

I really want to see Old School Chevy make some low-risk moves in the early part of 2019 to try to fill out this roster.


Vin Fosh

I am a long time 76ers fan, who saw his first Sixers game from the nosebleeds of the Spectrum. I have watched every NBA draft since 1994, and I fall in love with almost every draft prospect by June of each year. In my playing days, I was a true VORP all-star. I was/am a very proud TRUSTER of SAM HINKIE and THE PROCESS, which is what connected me with the awesome team at Sixers Front Office. Follow me on Twitter at @vinfosh. Also, follow the rest of the Philly Front Office crew on for quality coverage of the Sixers, Eagles, Phillies and Flyers.

We've moved to! Go see us there, as this is going away soon.
