Horrible news. Sounds like a kneejerk reaction after a trademark slow start from Mo.

No surprise he was fired he hasen't been able to incorporate Elton Brand into the 76's offense.

Iggy and Brand just didn't seem to complement each other in Cheeks system.

actually iggy was one of the better sixers in the half court set with brand. problem is miller, he's not suited for this system.

He's a pretty good coach. I think he'll get another job soon. I think he was one of the classiest NBA coaches. I'll never forget how he helped the girl with the star spangled banner in Portland. Great NBA moment!

I can't remember a year where so many coaches were fired so early in the season.

Cheeks is a horrible offensive coach. He was a bad offensive coach in Portland and a bad one in Philly.

The 76ers could use somebody with past experiance of how to use a big man like Sam Mitchell who did a fantastic job in Toronto by using Chris Bosh to his fullest potential.

Hopefully not. No coach can give Iguodala a jumpshot or teach that bum how to dribble.

This team would be better served with VanGundy as coach. They're built to play his style.
