Despite Andre Iguodala's inconsistency when closing out games for the 76ers, he is not the hindering reason in their team's success.
Although the 7-foot-1 center, Spencer Hawes, had a tremendous game (16 points and 15 rebounds) against the Sacramento Kings earlier today, he and his fellow 76ers centers have been the weakest part of Philadelphia's lineup.
Hawes only averages 7.0 points and 5.6 rebounds as the 76ers starting center. When compared to the 76ers former center in Samuel Dalembert (who Philly traded to receive Hawes), Hawes is averaging two less points, approximately one less block and making 22 percent less shots from the free throw line.
The only other center listed on the 76ers roster is 12-year veteran Tony Battie, who only featured in 36 of Philadelphia's 73 games, and averages a dismal 3 points and 3 rebounds this season.
With that being said, all the production from the center position is possibly unfairly, but nonetheless put on Hawes's shoulders. He's only in the third year of his NBA career, so there is room for improvement, but I still believe the 76ers need to sign or trade for a solid center during the off-season, and hope that Hawes can learn from them and be a force off the bench in the near future.
