what values were they instilling after losing 72 games? They were the laughing stock of the league. Sure Brown gets credit for holding the team together. But lets not overreact here. If the sixers don't make the playoffs you don't think Brown will be fired?
I'm pretty sure he will if they don't show massive improvement in terms of record.
Your record is your record. I get it you don't like Horny, he probably will get the boot next offseason too because its tough to find a coach willing to go through this type of a dreadful year.
Brown gets rave reviews but if he doesn't produce this year he will be fired regardless of all the "values he instilled".
Ask KJ McDaniel about the Sixers culture, since he felt like they were killing his career
I agree, this idea that the sixers were building culture is some BS...you don't go 10-72 and build culture. They were actively not playing a lot of players that would help them win just because they wanted to rack up more losses.
Sure brown gets however he is allowed to play to "play hard" but is that really what coaching has become...getting million dollar players who job is to play a game to "play hard". Its a results business. They had a losing culture for 4 god awful years. They did what they wanted to do...accumulate high draft choices. Can you name me one player outside of maybe Covington/Holmes that have actually proven to be NBA level talent on the sixers...the sixers just wanted to accumulate Embiid/Simmons/Fultz...that was from tanking...not building a culture.
Aside from the lotto picks who were missing seasons at a time, players "played hard" because they are all G-League call ups and 2nd rounders trying to make it in the league. The 17 win Knicks led by Amundson, Lance, and Shved played hard too.
This culture thing is a stretch.
