Honestly I don't think this is a bad fire, I think this team is a 6-seed talent at best, underacheiving.

If I were Larry Brown, I would be considering the Clippers over the Sixers. Clippers have more flexibility in their roster, and they have some nice young guns. Sixers are stuck with the guys they have basically

They need a coach that wants the team to play hard-nosed defense and lets them run.

Holiday and Igoudala are lock-down defenders, and they should be running with a big like Favors.

Except that if you were Larry Brown, you would have children who are going to high school in Philly and a wife who still lives there. And it's not like he would up and move them out of that high school, he specifically moved his family back there so that they could attend Episcopal (Gerald Henderson and Wayne Ellington's high school). Yesterday Larry said his current coaching spot would be his last but it is Larry Brown. I could see him living in another city from his family like he does now, but not really all the way on the other coast in Clipperville. Possibly weighing against Brown coming here is that he would like to have control over personnel and as of today, Stefanski still has his job. edit: I wasn't trying to come off as a smartass if that's how it came across, sorry.

"The qualities of the next head coach ... the qualities have to be a manager, teacher and motivator. Three qualities I would look for right away.

Ironically that's what we already had with Mo Cheeks. Here's a list of potential guys I came up with in the Sixers forum last week:

Byron Scott
Jeff Van Gundy
Avery Johnson
Doug Collins
Tom Thibodeau (Boston assistant)
Mike Budenholzer (SA assistant)
Dwayne Casey
Chris Ford
Sam Mitchell
Lawrence Frank
Paul Silas
Mike Dunleavy


Not all guys I would consider, just a short list of guys who are out there. Byron Scott fits the description, Dwayne Casey was one of the 2 finalists last year when Jordan got the job. The guy everyone wants is Avery Johnson but when asked about the job last year he stated he wanted to be the only guy pursued by a team, not be part of a coaching search. Plus he's big bucks and Philly likely can't afford that while still paying old coaches. I see them potentially going with an assistant from some where such as Thibodeau. Someone who isn't going to command big bucks and can possibly grow with the team, while also changing them back to a defensive philosophy.

Yea, didn't really think of his personal life. Thinking more in the sense which team is bets for him to coach. And he would likely get to be GM and coach if he were the Clippers coach. He has coached here before, don't really think its out of the question. He would likely only be there for a few years tops anyways.

Thibodeau is your man. Rivers might potentially leave coaching after this season, and Thibodeau might leave Boston.

So they'll be paying Maurice Cheeks, Eddie Jordan, and whatever coach they hire next all at the same time...:eek:

No wonder teams nowadays can't be profitable.

You think that's crazy? We were still paying Aaron McKie when he was a Laker.

Is there anything we should know about him? Everyone just knows him as this great defensive mind. How's his personality? Easy going players coach or strict general?
