PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Sixers cleaned house this off-season, hiring a new general manager, cutting ties with head coach Doug Collins, and (perhaps) making a front office change with CEO Adam Aron.
But the team has yet to hire a new coach, the new general manager hasn’t spoken publicly since its introductory press conference, and the Adam Aron situation, on the surface, seems to have been bungled.
94WIP’s Angelo Cataldi is not happy about any of it.
“I want to say this straight to their face [the Sixers] right now, on Philadelphia morning radio. You are a disgrace to this city. Adam [Aron] if you have any power left, I know your philosophy and I know that you know, that what you guys are doing right now to this city with your franchise, is a disgrace,” Cataldi said Tuesday morning on 94WIP. “You know it, because you came on this show and told us how important you thought it was for a city to be in a communication with the team. That a team doesn’t do exactly what they’ve been doing since May 15th, when Sam Hinkie was hired. I demand from the Sixers better treatment of the fans of this city, they deserve better and you’ve got to straighten your act out today. I’m not letting you out. I will never feel apathy when the fans of this city are getting screwed the ways the Sixers are doing it right now, to them. I won’t let you do it. I won’t walk away. I will not shut up. So be served noticed today, Sixers, I’m paying attention and I’m going to kick your ass every chance I can get. Thank you.”
