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.READ MORE: Police Identify Man Killed In North Philadelphia Hit-And-Run As 64-Year-Old Raymond Hodgins

“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.”
