How many jump shots did Simmons take? That is the issue he has blatantly ignored Brown's direction on.
Embiid played better, glad the neck issue was minor, but can he sustain it?
50% is quite good, but again the Bulls D is horrible. It does seem like the 76ers are pretty dependent on hitting 3's. If they hit them a lot, they beat the Bucks on Christmas and could beat any team. If they do not, they really struggle offensively especially if Embiid is not on the post and Simmons is doing nothing but passing.
I agree, but they are a Jekyll and Hyde team that do not even seem to know themselves which team is going to show up each game.
Brand has put together a roster with serious flaws plus he has capped us out which hurts our flexibility. Is he better than BC? Yea, but so would Rich Kotite or any warm body.. Most believe Brand is over his head; I tend to agree, but will give him more time to see what happens.
Harris is the guy who caved to the NBA and fired Hinkie. Then he hired JC who brought his son, BC, in as GM in a sweetheart nepotism deal with predictable results - it ruined the Process. Being forced to fire BC because of his unethical conduct (not because of his terrible job performance) and finally getting rid of JC as well, he allowed the 76ers to not have any GM for a full critical off-season(!) and then eventually brought in Brand. His ownership has been pretty bad so far IMO.
The roster is flawed, but talented yes due to Embiid and Simmons who were products of the Process. The rest are fungible and expensive.
Firing the coach is likely needed, but the problems are deeper than Brown all the way to to the top and all the way through the roster. It may be a "player's league", but if they cannot take any criticism or any coaching or a benching here and there, then they will never win anything anyway.
