How did two rookies of the year escape the Sixers?
I know some of you on this board might have difficulty commenting due to player/ club connections, but I would love to know what went wrong about the middle of this decade, when the Sixers somehow overlooked both Newley and Ingles for their team?
Was it just that the coaching staff didn't rate them? Or did they both want more money than the Sixers were willing to pay for a rookie?
Understand, I don't want more innuendo and guesswork. I've heard all that before. Basically, if you aren't very sure what you are saying is correct, don't bother commenting! I don't need snipers or people pushing their own agenda.
Just hoping that enough water has passed under the bridge by now (with new owners) to get some factual answers?
Outside of financial troubles, not signing those guys is the reason the Sixers have been abysmal for half a decade right there. Instead of moping about clutching our wooden spoon, we could well have been celebrating at least one championship in the past few years!
Alright, fire away! :D
