I don't understand all the over analysis of Sam Hinkie and the rebuild. It's not that hard.

The NBA is not difficult to understand.

Sam Hinkie is not difficult to understand.

You need either the best players to win a championship, or the best team to win a championship. The Heat had the best players, the Spurs had the best team.

If you don't have the best players, or the best team, you're not winning the championship.

The Sixers don't have the best players.

The Sixers aren't the best team.

Therefore, they did not win the championship.

Only one team can win a championship.

The Sixers are not that one team.

There are no prizes for finishing 2nd through last.

The Sixers finished in that range.

They didn't get a prize.

In the NBA, it's better to be awful than it is mediocre.

The Sixers were mediocre.

Then they were awful.

Now they're still awful.

Managers and coaches don't want awful teams.

Sam Hinkie and Brett Brown don't want an awful team.

You acquire the best team and best players by being awful then rebuilding.

The Sixers are rebuilding.

The goal of rebuilding is to acquire the best team or the best players.

The Sixers are trying to acquire the best team or the best players.

You acquire the best team or best players through free agency or through drafting.

The best players only sign with teams who already have some other best players.

Therefore, the best free agents aren't going to sign with Philadelphia.

The only other way to get the best players are drafting them and developing them.

The Sixers are drafting the prospects they think will be the best players.

This process can't be expedited, otherwise you sign players who aren't the best players and you become mediocre again.

The Sixers won't expedite it. They don't want Lance Stephenson. They don't want to be mediocre.

When your draft picks develop into all stars/the best players, you attract other best players.

The Sixers will develop their draft picks then sign the best players.

They will be a championship contender.

Those are the only options you have in the NBA.

The Sixers are executing one of them: suck, draft, develop, and repeat until they get the best players.

Not difficult.
