The team needed a shooter and Thybulle was not there just yet.
As the Sixers get set to resume the 2019-20 season down in steamy Orlando, the team acknowledges that they will need Thybulle to play a huge role in their title plans and coach Brett Brown has been floored by his rookie’s presence so far in practice. “I’m lucky enough to have two, arguably three All-Stars on our team that I have to go up against every day, and to earn their respect helps me to take that confidence and carry it over into games where I’m playing against other guys of that caliber.”
Even though Thybulle has put in a lot of work on the defensive end all season long, it did not start out that way.
“I think it’s evolved in just being more under control,” Thybulle said with a laugh.
