The Sixers are asking fans to be patient as they continue to build, but should they reward fans with discounted future ticket prices?
The Sixers have decided to stay quiet on draft night.
Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie, is not seen or heard from often, except on draft day of course. Last year during the 2013 NBA draft, Hinkie traded Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans for the 2013 sixth overall pick in Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick.
The question is, who will that fan be?
After finishing the season 19-63, the second worst record in the NBA, Sixers owner Joshua Harris called the season a “huge success.” Some fans and radio show hosts, particular WIP Morning Show’s Angelo Cataldi, took exception to that comment.
The Sixers have lost 11 straight games, the most recent of which was to the team with the NBA’s worst record, the Milwaukee Bucks. The team traded two of its starters for a total of three second round picks. Of the players currently on the active roster, there are only two sure-fire NBA players. Still, things seem like they’re right on track.
When you say it out loud, it does sound pretty crazy. “The owners of the Sixers are purchasing the New Jersey Devils. And Scott O’Neil, the CEO of the Sixers will also be the CEO of the Devils.” Sure, it’s not the first time one ownership group has owned teams in different markets. But the Devils are one of the Flyers biggest rivals, so this is new territory.
New Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil apologizes to fans who invested in Andrew Bynum.
New Sixers CEO Scott O’Neil knows rebuilding the Sixers will have its highs and lows, and he says he’s ready for it.
A report from 94WIP’s Howard Eskin says Scott O’Neil will replace Adam Aron as Sixers CEO.
