Rauchbach: You signed a one-year deal your rookie season with the Sixers. Most rookies have more than a year to make their mark, but you only had one. Did that create a sense of urgency for you? Lavoy Allen: “Oh yeah, definitely. When I came in, that was the lockout year and I was over in France before that. So when I came in, I just tried to be real professional. I was always on time. Anything the veteran guys needed, I was trying to make them happy. I think it was about early February when they had a chance to cut me, and they didn’t cut me. By early February, my contract became guaranteed. So, I was doing everything I could just to keep everybody happy, just to stay on the team until after February.”
Rauchbach: What are your individual goals for this season? Allen: “If I get the opportunity, depending on how many minutes I get, just try to average a double-double. You never know what can happen. We could go small. You don’t know what can happen. But I think one of the things that I do best is rebounding, and I think I can rebound with the best of them. I just try to get a double double every time I get out there.” Rauchbach: What is the outlook collectively for you guys this season? Allen: “Deep playoff run.”
