Reform should not be taken lightly. Easier to make a bad change than it is to correct a bad change. Figure out what you're trying to solve.

Derek Bodner

Although, to be honest, I think short term the impact on #sixers was minimal. This is a win for the NBA IMO.

Derek Bodner

This is a bigger win for the #sixers to open a season than when they beat the defending champion Miami Heat on opening night last year.

Bob Cooney

Seeing that Board of Governors voted down a new lottery system for the NBA. It will stay the same for now.

Derek Bodner

Change for sake of change isn't necessarily good. RT @ByPatrickWall: I have to admit, though... it feels weird to cheer against reform.

Derek Bodner

I'm not sure to credit Hinkie, Presti, or Woj, or whether initial projections missed mark. Regardless, ty to whoever talked sense into them

Derek Bodner

Wow. This looked insurmountable just two days ago.

Derek Bodner

Plan is going well. Impact of this change on #sixers is minimal RT @AA_610: @Derek Bodner we are f'ed.. the plan is going up in flames.

Examining effectiveness of the #sixers vs #magic rebuilds in 5 years will be fascinating. Similar situations, but very different execution

#sixers do not receive revenue sharing. TV deal, yes. Rev sharing, no RT @SethPartnow: By virtue of the NBA's revenue sharing...

Derek Bodner

I think Vucevic is overrated by many, but with the cap going up, that's a fair salary for a guy just about to enter his prime.

Dan Gelston

I've got to side with @ryanlawrence21 and pick Royals in 6.

Lot of GM's making around that money for something they aren't good at MT @FanSince09: Williams making 2.5m to do something he's not good at

One other injury was to running back Kenneth Harper. Harper, who had 2 c arries vs. Houston, is questionable.

Derek Bodner

This was a response to the wheel proposal, but much still applies. Why tanking is a symptom of the problem: libertyballers.com/2014/3/4/54596…

Derek Bodner

Brillant RT @Zach Lowe: And as for lotto reform, some owners will vote for it even if their GMs push them to oppose.

Derek Bodner

. per @Chris Mannix, Milwaukee has joined OKC and Philadelphia. Still need 5 more to defect to block change.

Derek Bodner

Woj’s article makes it sound like there’s a lot more support for NOT changing the lottery among GM’s than owners.

John Mitchell

Dawkins has an ankle injury.

John Mitchell

Or are we going to be a team that will be ready to play Friday night.

John Mitchell

We get the same challenge again - Rhule said of this Saturday's game with UCF. R we going to be the same team that we saw Friday night?

John Mitchell

we didn't handle that moment the way we all thought we would. The only thing for us to do is to grow from it.

John Mitchell

Two teams where there were some expectations and that was a new challenge for us and we stumbled a little bit.

More than twice the #Sixers media members at today's practice than at last night's preseason game.
