Which proves the 76ers are still Brett Brown’s team. He chose Simmons over Butler. Brand concurred. Say what you want but the 76ers are committed to Simmons. Maybe he will work on his shooting form this summer instead of playing the celebrity game.Philly offering Ben Simmons a 5/$168M extension.
Brown is not great at coaching offense. His strong suit is defense. Now he finally has a team that can dominate on defense. Josh Richardson is an excellent defender who replaces one of the league’s worst defenders. Embiid, Horford and Simmons are great closers. Harris is solid. Tallest lineup in the league, should rebound well. Mike Scott coming off the bench with more size.
Critics can still question Philly’s lack of shooters. Defense creates offense and the 76ers will once again push tempo. They will be fun to watch. The flaws are still there, just a little harder to exploit.
