But not 24 hours after his team’s season was over, 76ers coach Doc Rivers said Monday that he believes this summer will be different for Simmons. Why? Because, according to Rivers, not only is Simmons willing to do the work but the Sixers also have a plan to address his shooting woes that will involve doing “The right work” and doing it “The right way.”
“I believe, without going into detail with what we’re doing, I believe we know what the right work is, and the right type of work, and the right way to do it,” Rivers said when asked why this offseason will be different as far as Simmons’ shooting goes. “You can do the work all the time, but if it’s not done in the right way and the right type of work, you may not improve.
“After being here for a year, I really do believe we’ve identified what and how, and now we have to do the do part. “
