For the past two seasons the word that has consistently been associated with 76ers basketball is “rebuilding” (some may claim the word is “tanking”). Now in year three of General Manager Sam Hinkie’s master rebuilding plan, the City of Brotherly Love is expecting to see some progress. After all, rebuilds can’t last forever and eventually an improving product needs to be seen night in and night out on the court at The Center.
To his credit, Hinkie sounds optimistic about year three of trusting the process. And he should…I mean they can only get better right? During a fourteen-minute media session last week Hinkie covered a range of questions and hinted that he believes the Sixers will improve on the court in 2015-16. A coachable group of young, skilled players who are willing to put the work in seems to be main reason Hinkie acknowledged that we should expect a step forward from the Sixers this season.
