Call me crazy, but my vote is for Kenny Smith. You don't necessarily need a veteran coach to win, you need a guy who people will listen to, and a guy who knows the game. Kenny really knows the game, and it's obvious he's eventually going to make the jump to the bench.
What need more than a coach, is better management. We put Billy King at the head of the organization, when he clearly wasn't the right fit. Let's get the Sixers out of the grip of Larry Brown, once and for all and find someone who knows the game, has a plan for the future, to run the franchise.
I'm tired of sacrificing tomorrow for a bandaid that might not even work today.
Kenny Smith is brilliant... unfortunately for Philadelphia he's smart enough to know that he won't be able to make much of an impact with a franchise in shambles. Rebuildiing isn't an option for Philadelphia, but if they can get a defensive minded coach then they have a chance of making the ECF again.
what about slatislav pesic? Ever heard of him?
He is a great and respected coach in europe (currently coaching Euroleague champ FC Barcelona)
He'd bringt great intensity & heart to the court which is something the sixers need cause to me most of them seem to be asleep during the game
