It’s not secret that Doug Collins was not our first choice to be the new head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers. This isn’t and anti-Collins thing either. We actually like Doug as a player, coach and broadcaster. We simply felt for numerous reasons that better head coaching candidates were available to the Sixers.
Still we have to admit that Ed Stefanski could have done much worse then landing Collins and after his press conference down at the Wachovia Center on Monday, we starting to think that even though he wouldn’t have been our first choice, that Collins will get the Sixers back on track.
In fact at times we felt like Collins was reading our minds as he addressed the ills that sunk the 2009-10 season for Philadunkia’s home team. For this post, we re-examined Collins press conference from Monday and pulled out several things Collins said that we really liked and provided some Philadunkia commentary on the topics. Of course the key to Collins success here in Philadelphia will be backing up Monday’s words up with action.
