Derek Bodner

Brett Brown on the #sixers vs #heat game to end the season: "Is your question am I glad that game is over? Because I could say hell yes."

Derek Bodner

Short version: I wouldn't expect Saric to come over this season. Very little that the #sixers can do.

Derek Bodner

w/how important Saric is, any newly negotiated buyout would likely be very expensive. #Sixers limited in what they can contribute to buyout.

There is a 1.4% chance that the #sixers pick #1 AND get the Lakers pick this year. 3.8% chance Sixers pick top-3 and get Lakers pick.

Derek Bodner

Brown might be 2nd most important person in #sixers organization, and further data to suggest #sixers hit on his hire makes season a success

Derek Bodner

Imagine where young #sixers players would be with coach like Doug Collins, who passively-aggressively blamed everyone when things went sour.

Tom Moore

Hinkie has said 2016. RT @MattDesimone2: why a long shot for saric? they wont take buyout or sixers not willing to buy him out 4 next yr?

Derek Bodner

Brown: "Nerlens, when he first came out, caught me off guard because he was way behind what I thought he was going to be." #sixers
