The Philadelphia 76ers are entering a new era of their franchise as they have officially hired Doc Rivers as the 25th coach in franchise history. The Sixers are bringing in a new coach for the first time in seven seasons after letting Brett Brown go on August 24.
The challenge for Rivers is to now come in and get things done on the floor such as bringing a championship to the city of Philadelphia. The two guys who are leading that charge are stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid who receive a lot of criticism for coming up short in the playoffs, but there is also a lot of success the two of them have had.
“They’ve won 65% of the games that they’ve played in,” said Rivers on Monday.
“I look at how many points we score as a team,” Rivers added.
