While I still wouldn't rule it out that he's leaving, this is good news for the 'Cats!

Sorry Philly!

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?

Actually I don't really know much about him and I'm not sure anyone does.

True, but I think Philly has one of the best young rosters in the league.

Its really hard to break up a team when your 2 highest paid players are immovable objects. Brand is owed 51 mill over the next 3 years and Iggy is owed 62 mill over the next 4. Luckily, Dalemebert finally comes off the books after next season

Eddie Jordan is like a good car salesman. He's a great communicator and knows how to sell his product, he just knows little about it.

Butt heads with and complain about the personnel demanding they trade them for the players he wants just like he does with every team.

Larry Brown is a very good coach, but this has always been his major flaw. Unless he's both coach and GM, it probably won't work.

^ Even so, it would almost certainly be better than the excruciating years since his departure. IMO the team is much like the Bobcats this year on paper. There is always Dileo (who ought to have finaly say in all draft selections & exec. decisions) or anyone besides Ed as GM. The only possible direction is up, plus Allen may likely come back for another season and properly retire as a Sixer. LB is probably the only coach that can command big $$ from the team at this point.

Philly shoulda kept Jim O'Brien. Great coach, should make him a shady under the table offer to get him to leave Indy.

Elton Brand and Dalembert are the ones killing the team with their contracts and uselessness. Dalembert will be gone and its only at matter of time before Brand is off the books.

Hopefully managment decides to build through the draft like they've started to instead of reaching for vets like they have in Webber and Brand. They only did that to pair them with AI tho to have a shot of winning so those days shouold be over.

What shitty management you have to have to waste the prime of a player like Allen Iverson. SMH.
