Dalembert is one of the worst players in the league and the new Iguodala is never going to be great.

Mo Cheeks can be summed up pretty easily: great player, great guy, mediocre head coach. Hope he lands somewhere nice.

Well, he did take a loser and get it to the playoffs. The Sixers problem has and still is the front officer. Billy King was amongst the worst GM in the history of NBA basketball. The Sixers used to be a team that was a family and had loyalty.

Now they throw aside a legend who acutally got them to the playoffs with mediocre talent.

Mo Cheeks good luck man. You gave this organization enough. No wonder Dr. J doesn't come around anymore.

The 76ers have been cursed since the hiring of Doug Moe, since the trading of Barkley, and the bizarre sage of Larry Brown.
