1. Brett Brown is a bad coach

This one was a concern when former Spurs assistant Brett Brown took the job, and now as Brown enters his second year, hot take artists will be quick to point out the 76ers’ lack of improvement under Brown. Now, many have given Brown a pass due to the construction of this roster; after all, the 76ers sport just two players over 25-years-old, and only seven former first-round draft picks, two of whom are Elliott Williams and Arnett Moultrie. Still, @FireBrettBrown already exists, and it’s probably only a matter of how many blowout losses it takes for people to question Brown’s ability.

The truth about Brown is that he’s actually probably doing a pretty decent job as the 76ers’ head coach. His run-n-gun approach with tons of three-pointers is designed to create as efficient of an offense as he can with inefficient parts, and while it remains to be seen how good of a developmental coach he is, Tony Wroten looks improved this preseason, as does Casper Ware, so that’s something. He’s definitely not terrible, that’s for sure.

Criticism of Brown is fair, and in a couple of years if the team hasn’t moved at all, it might be time to cut ties. But to ask for Brown’s head or call him a bad coach this season is incredibly premature. However, we’ll still see it happen anyway.
