While Doc isn't a great coach....I also don't think he is a bad coach either.

And as far as James and AD....he is a coach I think they would respect. And I don't think the trio respected Vogel very much....not that I think he was the main issue or deserved to be fired.
And respecting the coach is something that has to be considered when hiring one.

I think that is an issue with the Nets and the Lakers this past season.

Looking back....the Lakers should have hired Lue when they had the chance....not that he is a great coach either but he is better than Vogel (who needs to coach a young team where he can teach) or anybody else they can get right now.

Not for nothing, but the Eagles also said Doug Pederson was coming back.
Just because Stephan A says it, doesn't necessarily make it so.

#edit# oops, sorry @DJ looks like Morey just said it.

Honestly......

If you run it back with the old heads, Doc is a fitting coach.

He doesn't play young guys.....unless he has no other option.

Plus, for all his warts, he's not a bitch.

He wouldn't let the Rambi dictate who he plays and how much.

A guy like Terry Stots would get trampled by Klutch and meddlesome management.

While Doc isn't a great coach....I also don't think he is a bad coach either.

And as far as James and AD....he is a coach I think they would respect. And I don't think the trio respected Vogel very much (especially RW) ....not that I think he was the main issue or deserved to be fired.

Not playing young guys is likely part of the reason his teams fade in the playoffs. He's not a bad coach and the Lakers can and have done worse. But he's not a championship coach.

Neither the Lakers nor the Sixers are a championship team. This is much ado about nothing

Who has more re-trade value at this point? Harden or Simmons (after sitting out a year and back surgery)?

Simmons.

Because he is younger, making less money and still provides some uncertain upside.

It's pretty accurate.

Dude can't adjust his junk when the seam of his pants rub him the wrong way, let alone make in game adjustments in pivotal parts of a series.

Nothing he's done before, nor after, that chip show he's a above average coach.

Doc didn't have a bunch of candy ass malcontents like Brooklyn.

Remember: this was pre Rondo/Allen beef.

Well as the Nets showed....not just any coach can coach ego driven star players.
Not really the same situation.

But, point taken.

Doc isn't a great Coach.

But, Nash is a bad one.

I fucking hate the Ringer. Nobody “blamed” Jimmy Butler. They’re a bunch of metrosexual Mass Holes whose athletic careers topped out in rec ball. I can’t stand those cvnts.
Yeah the ri get blowd. They wrote fake shit all the time.

Philly loved Butler, the asshats that run the team fucked up and brian colangelo should be killed.

This Summer gonna be brutal in Philly.

I'm good with Embiid getting that shit off his chest.

Harden isn't Harden anymore.

Losing Jimmy was a mistake.

#TruthTeller

Fuck it.....

Get rid of Harden, Doc and Morey and start the fuck over with Embiid and Maxey.
Embild is also a clown with his antics. He will never win as a lead dog the way he conducts himself on the floor.

one of the most overrated coaches in all of professional sports. he's been riding that lone NBA championship from 2007-08 for the last 14 years now. my brother's cat could've coached that celtics team to a championship.

Greatest team of all team. Could’ve won like 77 games if they wanted to

You get harden to take a Chris Paul like deal and you’re back in business

Although losing Danny green is a killer.

But now the sixers can basically use their mle and stay below the tax line

Does Embiid want to leave the Sixers? I keep reading quotes of him downing his team. Said that the Sixers don't have anyone like P.J. Tucker. Said that people expected the Houston James Harden, but he isn't that player anymore. And I think he also said that he wishes that Jimmy Butler were still his teammate.

No.

Watch the entire press conference.

I hate when people hyper focus on 1 liners from a 26 minute presser.

He was not ragging on Harden. He complimented Butler and said multiple times that he wasn’t the GM in Philly when asked what roster moves he wanted the team to make. His way of dodging that question was:

“I am not the GM, they could trade me or anyone else”.

He was not asking to be traded. But I do think he was lobbying for a PJ Tucker type player that really every good team should have.
