    Yeah, the schemes haven't worked. Would be a good move to switch that up.

    Unfortunately, switching up the horrific team building moves Elton Brand made isn't so simple. I have a hard time seeing feasible paths for them to right that ship.

    He should've been fired last post season when he said :


    "That was JAMES BUTLER .... the ADULT in the room"


    WTF?! Like who says such weird stuff much less a head coach?



    Get rid of him, trade Embiid because obviously he can't be the best player on your team and win. Trade him to the Warriors for the #2 pick and rebuild around Simmons. And see if you can rid of Horford's contract as well.



    Rebuild aka TRUST THE PROCESS 2.0 !!!!!


    SMDH!!!!

    Good, dude isn't a very good coach and even worse at making front office decisions.

    Like I said, I think he was a fun process coach because there was some good in there. But I think he was too much into “here’s the system. You play in the system” rather than looking at his talent and understanding it. There was a good amount of his coaching that’s some good “stick together guys” and “let’s learn to be a professional”.

    In the long run he never learned how to shorten rotations. Never learned to adjust to his players. We let a few instant offense guys out of our grasp because he couldn’t just let them do their thing.

    Ultimately I think he wanted to be the Duncan/Admiral Spurs and that doesn’t work anymore.

    That's what happens when you come out of the Pop coaching tree. Pop is great don't get me wrong ..... but his coaching tactics are antiquated. And likewise is a guy like Ettore Messina or someone like Becky Hammon get a coaching gig, they gonna have the same issue as Pop and Brown.

    What about coach Bud who was under Pop for decades?

    He is hard capped but you may use the TE and the TPE and trade for him

    There’s a lot of coaches that came up from old school tactics and adopted. Heck Pops even adopted some too.

    As a Sixers fan its been very frustrating for last couple of season. Can NEVER seems to get out of the 2nd round and this year they got swept by the Celtics. Brand and Brown both should be fired!

    To be fair, they would've made it past the 2nd round last year if they were facing any other team in the East.

    I know we’re about to see a ton of “hit pieces” against Brown in the coming days, and Butler questioning Brown doesn’t concern me. But this thing about the text exchange from Butler gives insight into what he’s like:

    ??!? All I saw was that it said Ben didn’t like a text Jimmy sent. What insight are you getting from that?

    That he’s a douche about things. Rather than take Ben aside and talk to him he sent a text to the entire team calling it out.
