76ers Would Damage the Franchise Immeasurably if They Fire Brett Brown

12 Up

The Philadelphia 76ers are really ready to go there.

If the latest reporting is to be believed, Philly's brass are laying down the gauntlet for head coach Brett Brown: if he can't take care of business Sunday on the road in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semis against the Raptors, he's done.

And if the Sixers do lose that game and Brown does get fired, it will be proof-positive that #TheProcess was for nothing, and that this franchise is suffering from a loathsome and indefensible rot at the very top.

Sure, maybe young general manager Elton Brand had a plan all along to move on from Brown, who pre-dated him with the team, and appoint his own guy. NBA front office bosses generally consider it their right to do so in a number of circumstances. But this team isn't the Lakers– man-oh-man are they not, and thank goodness. So… why sack a terrific coach who just led you to a 51-win season one year after winning 52, and who's been dealt a terrible hand this postseason thanks to a troublesome injury to franchise star Joel Embiid?
