What Should I Ask Sixers President Rod Thorn?

I’m sitting in for Rob Ellis on 94WIP from 6pm-7 and post-game tonight, before and after the Sixers vs. the Utah Jazz.

Around 6:45, I’ll have the chance to interview Sixers President Rod Thorn.

As you may be aware, the NBA trade deadline is less than a week away. There’s been plenty of talk about whether the Sixers should or will make a move. It’s fair to say it’s a busy time for Mr. Thorn.

Aside from the questions that everyone asks, that we either know the answer to or he won’t answer, what would you like me to ask him.

I’ll try to avoid the following:

So, do the Sixers need a superstar?

Would you trade _________?

Are you going to get Dwight Howard?

Who are you talking to about trades?

If I had an hour with the guy, I’d ask him all of those questions, hoping that he’d slip up and say something noteworthy. But since I don’t, I figure it’s not worth the time. I should just ask him things he’ll answer.

Leave your ideas in the comments.

Sixers vs. Jazz 12.30.11 Prediction Thread

I don’t want to brag or anything, but I did predict the exact number of points the Sixers would score against the Suns. I guess I did mean to brag. I guess that means I’m bragging about being lucky. Whatever.

A win again the Jazz would be pretty big tonight, because it’ll prevent a let-down against Golden State from ruining the road trip. NBA teams aren’t very good in back-to-back games on the road, and that’s what the Golden State game is.

Coming back to Philly 3-2 would be a good thing, especially when you consider they won three games in their first 16 last year. 4-1 would be great, but 3-2 would be good.

The Jazz are pretty big up front, but they’re still not very good. I’ll go with the Sixers taking this one 98-91.

Give me yours.
