Brett Brown doesn’t want Sixers using pandemic as excuse to not be ready

Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers have not played a basketball game since March 11 when they defeated the Detroit Pistons at home. “We had our starters for 19 out of 65 games, I think that this team was built for the playoffs. Like every team, you’ve got some not fortunate injury situations. We get we need to be better on the road, we weren’t. We were dominant at home and somewhere in the middle, I felt like everything was pointing to us landing the plane, getting good health, and letting that environment be judgment day.”

No matter what happens, Brown would like a few weeks for his players to get some conditioning work in. “I think the notion of how do the players come in influences everything. The 3-week thing I think can be achieved provided the fitness base of the players coming in is at a standard that I’m saying that it needs to be. With that backdrop, I feel comfortable you can guarantee to go play basketball again.”

Whenever the season does resume, the fitness base will be on Brown’s mind the most. The players who have continued to work out during this time off will catch his and the rest of the coaching staff’s eye.
