Things were tough, things were said about a lack of accountability, and the culture was just not good.
That then started a chain reaction of multiple changes around the organization like bringing in Doc Rivers as a new coach and Daryl Morey as the team’s new president. “Change the habits of guys. They had some bad habits before we got here so just cleaning up some of those things. Obviously, we still have some ways to go and the sky’s the limit for this team. The potentials’s unreal with the superstars that we have.”
Green is absolutely right about that. “He’s coached many great players and I think that reflects in his ability to handle some of the stars that we have and even me as role players. He does a great job of coaching across the board and then also just being able to build the culture through growing pains.”
The biggest thing Rivers has done with the Sixers is get everybody to understand that the team comes first.
