On the 76ers' acquisition of center Dikembe Mutombo:
"Losing Theo Ratliff and Toni Kukoc in the trade for Mutombo changed the Sixers' chemistry, but it didn't set them back. They were a quickness team; now they're more of a power team. While Iverson has been in and out of the lineup with injuries, they've tried to establish Mutombo on the offensive end, and he's made a couple of moves lately that have shocked the hell out of me, like a turnaround jump shot from the baseline that I'd never seen him take before. They may go to him more in the playoffs than people think."
