What needs to happen with Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris for Sixers to get to next level, per Larry Brown
Former Philadelphia 76ers head coach and NBA legend Larry Brown has become just the latest key figure to chime in regarding the current status of the Eastern Conference franchise, a team that was just swept out of the playoffs by the rival Boston Celtics. With the trio of guard Ben Simmons center Joel Embiid and big man Tobias Harris still slated to lead the Sixers forward into the future, it was ultimately head coach Brett Brown who took the fall as he was fired by Philadelphia earlier this week.
Luckily for the Sixers, though, Brown knows exactly what this team needs to do in order to turn things around in a hurry as “The Process” is now hanging on by a thread.

Of course, the Sixers have already upped the ante in a major way over the course of the last several seasons as Philadelphia was once known as the king of tanking en route to scooping up a litany of top NBA Draft picks. Although the aforementioned Harris came over to Philadelphia via trade, the team managed to select both Simmons and Embiid early on as their arrival really turned the tables in the “City of Brotherly Love.” However, the Sixers just can’t seem to catch a break come postseason time as the team either loses in dramatic fashion like in 2018-19 of in ugly fashion like in 2019-20.
While the team has its core intact for years to come, it remains to be seen as to who will now lead this team from along the sideline as the 2020-21 campaign begins to loom large.
