Wednesday afternoon 76ers President Rod Thorn was a call-in guest for “The Mike & Ike Show” on 94WIP. Thorn was upbeat, seemed confident that the 7-6 are going to have a very good year and to our surprise, was very candid about the Sixers roster.
Rob Ellis was in for Michael Barkann yesterday. Ellis and Ike Reese (The Show’s NBA “head”) did a solid job of peppering Thorn with a variety of Sixers topics including the development of Spencer Hawes, “Big Nik’s” role, the inconsistent play of Mo Speights, why the Sixers didn’t make any moves in the recent NBA “off-season” and potential on-the-court chemistry issues for the Sixers.
Some of the answers Thorn gave made us cringe a little, but again, overall we were impressed with how honest Thorn was in answering questions from Reese and Ellis.
We transcribed two of our favorite clips and provide you with a link to the full interview with Collins after the jump.
