It doesn’t matter if the Sixers are down 30 or five points, Brown is always coaching like the game is within reach. Always teaching and that’s why I love Brett Brown. He could avoid the truth, but he’s been brutally honest all season and I love it. The city of Philadelphia loves it too. We respect coaches who talk, who tell us the truth, who admit how they really feel. None of these quotes should come as a surprise.
Brett Brown on rebuilding Sixers (via Philly.com):
“It’s much harder,” the rookie NBA head coach said. “It’s something that I didn’t judge properly. It doesn’t diminish my enthusiasm being here. I just recognize the monster ahead of us.
“Trying to build a program to the level we hope to build it to requires so much work and so much luck. And there is no wiggle room. You can’t skip a single step.”“I just think the magnitude of what it really takes to build a franchise and team, when you are living it and breathing it and going through how good the league really is, it catches you off guard from time to time,” Brown said.
