It wouldn't surprise me if when Mike Zarren gets a GM job, Hinkie would replace him as the Celtics' assistant GM.

Reposting this here so everyone sees it:


HartfordWhalers wrote:Due to a prevalence of posters bringing up their pet themes in all sorts of off topic discussions and dragging every topic to where they think everything needs to be (be it Brett Brown, Okafor, Covington, McConnell or whatever it is) we are as board mods going to start being much tougher about enforcing on derailment. In particular:

Continuing to post the same pet theme(s) in multiple unrelated threads is derailing the conversation. Users doing this will be reminded of board policy, and failing to restrict posts to their relevant topics will receive formal warnings.

Thanks all.

I think that if Hinkie wanted to be an assistant GM that he would have stayed here.

Qualm seemed to be working with the Colangelos. It was reported (believe by Tom) that he possibly would have stayed on if they hired his suggested candidate to share responsibilities with - supposedly Danny Ferry.

Every time we beat an NBA team we force our opponent's fan base to reflect on their team. That is stronger than beating a team that has a 3-1 lead in the NBA finals.

Well, I don't think that there is ever really such a thing as "sharing" authority. It is always one person with the power, and Hinkie knew that Bryan would have the power since Jerry was part of the equation.

I also doubt that they would even try to share power between Hinkie and someone else. He was going to be demoted, and he left on his own terms.

When he lands at a new team I'm sure that he will have full power. Otherwise he won't take it. There are too many other things for him to do to not control his own destiny.

Idk, both making assumptions - I think he would have since he supposedly suggested Ferry.

Reposting from elsewhere:

The Sixers in general have a 105.4 defensive rating. But look at that split by centers:

Nerlens Noel: 100.7 (very similar to his rookie number of 100.4 when he played center)
Joel Embiid: 101.7
Jahlil Okafor: 109.6
Richaun Holmes: 109.8

In terms of how those would rank around the league:

0) Noel Sixers 100.7
1) San Antonio Spurs 101.0
2t) Embiid Sixers 101.7
2t) Memphis Grizzlies 101.7
3) Utah Jazz 101.9
...
17) Toronto Raptors 105.4
18) Philadelphia 76ers 105.4
19)Boston Celtics 105.6
...
27) Brooklyn Nets 108.4
27.5) Okafor Sixers: 109.6
28t) Holmes Sixers: 109.8
28) Portland Trail Blazers 109.8
29) Los Angeles Lakers110.0
30) Denver Nuggets 110.2

(I included Holmes to show the drop off is the same there as well.)

Has anybody come across good Sam Hinkie t-shirts online? I've been looking for something good online to buy.

If we didn't do the Saric trade and then next season we end up not having a bottom 8 record in the league (top 8 protected in 2018), our 2018 will then be traded to the Magic right?

• If Philadelphia had a poor record during the 2016-17 season and owned a top-11 pick in 2017, Philadelphia would have kept that pick for itself. In other words, it was simply impossible for Orlando to obtain a top-11 pick from Philly in the 2017 NBA Draft. (This is why this pick has been referred to for two years as a “protected” first-round pick. In the Dwight Howard trade, the Sixers had protected themselves from giving up a top-11 pick in 2017.)

• If Philadelphia had not conveyed its pick to Orlando in 2017, then the Magic were going to receive a conditional first-round pick from the Sixers in 2018. But that pick also had protections on it that benefitted Philly. If Philly once again failed to make the playoffs in 2017-18 and received a top-eight pick for the 2018 NBA Draft, the Sixers would have kept that pick. In other words, it was impossible for Orlando to obtain a top-eight pick from Philly in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Well, i might be optimistic to say that there's a good chance Sixers pick could convey next year if not for the deal. That should be our saving grace for that Saric deal.

That, and having Saric versus Patyon. And the high 2nd (which brought back 1.5m and 2 more 2nds).


Payton was always an awful fit with this team. And Orlando. But even more so Philly. Even if you are a big believer in Payton, he still doesn't ever make sense.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
