TC14: Question No. 8

Coming off Friday night’s loss in Minnesota to the Thad Young led T-Wolves, it’s obvious the 76ers have a great deal to work on. So, Brett Brown’s “all of October” training camp continued yesterday with a 3+ hour practice over at the Sixers practice facility on the PCOm campus.  Since Brown and the team are still in training camp mode, we are going to continue to discuss...

NBA 30 Teams/30 Days Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

Coach Brett Brown can coach. He didn't get to prove it much during his first season, as the 76ers are undertaking some sort of strange plan to lose on purpose. But Brown has the respect of his young team, and if the Sixers ever decide to stop playing the draft lottery, his ability to teach defense and preach ball movement should pay off. Let's just hope the poor guy gets...

Sixers coach Brett Brown says Dario Saric is NBA ready now

The Sixers aren’t interested in winning in the immediate future, preferring instead to acquire assets and young talent that has a chance to be special for years to come.

Brett Brown Believes 76ers Should Draft Based On Best Player Available, Not Need

Brett Brown discussed his draft strategy on Thursday and the path he believes he would take if he were in charge of deciding on the Philadelphia 76ers' upcoming lottery pick. “I’m a best-player guy, then you figure it out,” Brown said. “Who knows?

Royce White doesn't travel to Europe with the 76ers

I’m going to try and give Royce White some breathing room on this one. According to CBS3 in Philadelphia, White did not travel to Spain for the Sixers preseason game on Sunday against Bilbao.
