Doc Rivers still working to change culture around Sixers after year 1

USA Today


Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers brought in Doc Rivers to replace Brett Brown in order to get her team back on track after being swept out of first round of the playoffs in 2020.

In his first year on the job, Rivers guided the Sixers to the No. 1 seed in the East for the first time in 20 years. The team still has to fix these bad habits, so that is on Rivers’ to-do list.

But first, the pain of losing Game 7 at home has to drive the team going forward. “The culture of this team and around this team. The teaching of not just the players, but even off the floor staff on driving this entire organization, like everybody has to be in. To me, that’s what we have to keep trying to improve, and the more we improve that around them, the more they’ll do it themselves.”

When it comes down to the specifics of Philadelphia’s culture, Rivers would not go into full detail on what he believes needs to be fixed, but after coming up short again, it’s obvious issues to clean up before the 2021-22 season remain.
