As other teams have moved on in the playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers are back to the drawing board. Offseason moves are now the major focus for Sixer fans and drives the podcast conversation this week.
On the latest episode of The Sixer Sense Podcast, Lucas Johnson and Christopher Kline welcome Ashley Foltz on the show to talk about the recent news surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers. After getting knocked out in the first round of the playoffs, much speculation hovers over the Sixers’ future. The initial topic involves Elton Brand’s press conference.
Discussion launches with Brand’s approach to securing a new head coach. After that, Al Horford’s fit takes over and whether or not his role is clear moving forward. From there, Lucas, Chris, and Ashley break down all of the potential future coaches for the 76ers. The list includes Jason Kidd, Tyronn Lue, John Lucas, Jay Wright, and Becky Hammond.
Ty Lue’s infamous stepover incident is mentioned as a blemish on a potential Sixers coaching position, and Jay Wright’s possible leap to the NBA from Villanova is brought up. Ashley offers her unique perspective on the possibility of Becky Hammond becoming the first female NBA head coach and her own experiences being part of a male-dominated industry.
Then, the legacy of Brett Brown is discussed in depth, focusing on all of the good and bad he did while he was the coach of the Sixers. Once they wrap up Brown’s legacy, the conversation turns to Mike Greenberg’s proclamation that the “Process” — which originated in 2013 — was a complete disaster. Lucas, Chris, and Ashley explain their views on the Process and whether all of the tanking and drama was worth it for the Sixers’ fanbase.
Lastly, the social media question of the week is read, along with responses from two TSS followers.
