“I’m sick of what’s going on there,” Brown said via Sheridan Hoops. “You know I care about the Sixers. It’s an unbelievable basketball city and I had a great experience there. I don’t want to get on them when they’re struggling, but they don’t have any veteran leadership. I want to help. I could straighten it out in five minutes. I wish they’d get Allen involved. All those young kids worship him.”READ MORE: Mother Shares Photo Of 6-Year-Old Injured In Hit-And-Run In Kensington

“If anybody deserved to be part of that franchise, I felt it was Aaron [McKie] and then I was really upset when Eric [Snow] and George [Lynch] and myself weren’t able to get to Allen’s retirement,” Brown said in October. “And then, I’m concerned, I wanted Allen involved with that franchise in a real positive way and in an important way.”
