1-2-3-4-5 – Sixers!
What a week for the 76ers and the offseason has just begun.

The Sixers in one week hired a plethora of front office and coaching staff additions highlighted by FORMER Houston Rockets General Manager, Daryl Morey.

Daryl Morey will change the entire trajectory of the 76ers organization and oversee all basketball operations for at least the next 5 years.

Elton Brand has shown that he has the makings for a good General Manager, he is decisive, he pays attention to analytics and for lack of a better term, he is ballsy.

Trust me, I am not a big Elton Brand fan going back to his playing days with the team. The main issue that I have and I believe most of the Sixers fan base has with Brand is the inexperience as a front office executive. This inexperience let Jimmy Butler leave to go to Miami and resulted in an awful 2020 campaign for the Sixers version of the Broad Street Bullies.

Morey while overseeing Brand will hopefully catch those types of moves in the future and avoid another Al Horford type signing.

The Sixers starting 5 will look a lot different in 2021 from 2020 as Morey will likely seek to change the roster. The Sixers fell in love with Morey because of his brilliant draft history but they should also be active in the trade and free agency markets.

If I could give the Sixers above an A grade so far for this offseason, I would.

In one week, Josh Harris went from being the most hated owner in the city to maybe the favorite just by putting the right people in place. Harris is certainly not a basketball guy so the key and what he finally did was put the right person in place to run his franchise.

I know this might just be incoherent rambling about the Sixers’ new president but I am thrilled for the first time in a long time about the basketball team in Philadelphia.
