So, the Nuggets decided to fire the Coach of the Year rather than give him a new contract. Okay. With that said, I hear the Sixers are looking for a coach... (dodges projectiles) In all seriousness, my first instinct is that the Sixers won't go after Karl, and Karl may not even be interested in coming to Philadelphia. I'm not the most knowledgeable about the NBA, admittedly, but based on what I do know about Karl, he doesn't seem like the ideal coach for a young or rebuilding team. With that said, the man has obviously had quite a bit of success in the league, and deserves a bit of a mention. I'd take him over Larry Brown in a heartbeat, anyway. So, George Karl for the Sixers? Does that warrant a "No," a "Maybe," or a "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" from you? I'm curious.
Yippee, the draft lottery has determined that the 7-6 will select in the late lottery in a bad draft...read all about it.

This seems incredibly misguided to me. Basically, his argument is that, because the Sixers have made bad top ten draft selections in the past, there's no reason to tank in an effort for a higher draft pick. He even says that there is no obvious candidate for the #1 selection (since pundits have declared it so) and therefore even lesser motivation to obtain the highest pick. However, if I recall correctly, as recently as two years ago, there was no standout in the class, but the Cavaliers took Kyrie Irving anyway and that has worked out pretty well for them.
