Brett Brown's future with the 76ers

Rumours recently that Brett Brown will get axed if the Sixers didn't win through to the NBA Finals. Unless key players are cold on him, that seems a bit rough? They just lost Game 7 in gutting circumstances. What do you think?

Cut him for sure.
Would like to see him successful because he's a good bloke but he shouldn't get another shot.

Amazing story Brett Brown. The guy they bought in to take a hit for a few years and get some draft picks. It just so happened one of those picks coming up was Ben Simmons. This bought Brown some time - that's all. Amazing he has been there that long. Just a good example of right place and time and willing to take on some adversity and be rewarded. Seems that time is now up. He'll find something else very good as a result of his time and success at Philly I'm sure.

Brett Brown is probably the best coach at tanking in the history of the modern NBA.

Tanking itself is not hard but tanking with league impunity makes him a valuable asset.

Gone - in my opinion. Majority of NBA owners are impatient once the big bucks are spent. They don't usually give time for chemistry etc to gel. Brown had the group going fairly well last season and then they traded for some big names and the current group collectively haven't been as good as the individuals coming in gave hope they might be. Inconsistency is a sign of players not gelling well.

Good to see them sticking with him, now they have to lockup free agents otherwise the process begins again. Seems Butler is happy enough but you never know and then it's going to be how much Harris is worth on the market.
But if they're not top 2 going into all star break can see Brown on the hot seat. Maybe another Brown, Larry, can get his walking frame down the sideline but he's been even more difficult as a senior citizen.

If this thread doesn't show how much of an idea the average Hoops poster has I don't know what does.
