07:19 AM ET 10.04 | Brett Brown doesn't exactly have experience on his side -- his own from an NBA coaching standpoint or his roster. That lack of experience causes Brown to teach, teach and teach some more. While something is explained, demonstrated and explained again, it is not always reaching its intended target. ... "We'll compete," said Brown with a "if nothing else" sort of tone. "They will play hard and they will compete. I think it can get ugly and ratty and inevitably you foul a lot and you gamble a lot and you can make poor reads. But those aggressive-type mistakes at this stage are good. I see it being ratty in those areas because they are trying to play so hard. It's a real fine line that these guys are going to go through and I'm going to have to get them there in taking that aggression and being smart with it."

Such a young promising team a couple years ago and are now in total disarray after the Bynum fiasco trade...

Will look forward to seeing the Sixers (Life after Andrew/Doug/Jrue). Will be quite interesting to watch.

The Lakers may be FUBAR but the 76ers are even worse.

Never quite understood the Jrue trade. How do you get better if you trade away bring young players? Bynum was off the books anyway so move on to other free agents (or even stay pat and let Jrue grow). Mindless trade IMO.
