Yesterday at the Quail Hollow Championship (PGA Tournament) in Charlotte Michael Jordan was paired with veteran golf star Fred Couples during the Pro-Am.
On the ninth tee Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown went inside the ropes, hugged everybody in the group and then hung with MJ and Freddy for the rest of the round. To us that seems like pretty unusual behavior if LB is about to pack up shop and come home to Philly.
Dei Lynam at csnphilly.com wonders if LB could be headed to LA instead of Philly?
Phil Sheridan at the Inqy writes that the 76ers should simply walk away from this whole Larry Brown idea. Which is something we agree with 100% (more on that later).
Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer says the Bobcats must keep Larry Brown.
Brian at depressedfan.com writes that if / when LB becomes the savior of the Sixers he’ll make a trade or two to get the Sixers in his “play the right way” mold. So what deal will Larry make first?
Over at Libertyballers.com they rank who will get the Sixers head coaching job, not who deserves it. They have LB in the #1 spot, but our choice would the guy in their #5 spot.
On to the NBA Draft:
Over at draftexpress.com, they are forecasting that the Sixers will select Kansas big Cole Aldrich.
On the other hand, nbadraft.net predicts that Ed Stefanski or his replacement will go with DeMarcus Cousins.
Finally, Chad Ford at ESPN.com has the Sixers picking Al-Farouq Aminu of Wake Forest.
Jack McCallum at SI.com writes that his all-time NBA dream matchup would feature the 1972 Lakers (69-13) vs. the 1983 76ers (65-17). You won’t like how the historical matchup turns out for Dr. J, Moses and company.
From former 76er Royal Ivey’s Twitter page we learn that Ivey is loving the “Fear the Deer” momentum in Milwaukee. Even though he got no burn last night, we couldn’t be happier for that guy over his new team making the post-season and now having a chance to advance. Ivey was a complete class act during this lost season in Philly. FYI…Primoz got 3 mins of tick last night in the Bucks W over ATL
