 Hinkie already won this team is an outstanding success already at this stage and he told ownership he was executing a 7-year plan. He's way ahead of schedule and imagine if they drafted Porzingis instead of Okafor.

 Or if they sign LeBron next year they will win a ring next year. And what thanks does Hinkie get. Fired. Tanking works. That's really weak how they treated that guy, he should have a GM job right now.

Or you can have actual player development instead of the ****show we’ve watched.. A 7 year rebuild to be the fourth or fifth best team in the east isn’t exactly dazzling.

if we were tanking we would've had a chance at simmons and Jaylen. instead we were glad we had a dead end team that was in a rush to lose in the 1st rnd.

Things look good for them at the moment, but they haven't won anything yet, or even come close. And I still expect Embiid to get injured again.

I guess drafting Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor worked well for them. ::)

We have won anything yet or even come close either.

It was a 4 year rebuild.  This is the 5th season and they finished with the 5th best record in the league and had the 4th best point differential.

I never understood why they fired him. Why would you allow him to execute a 7 year plan but not give him 7 years? IIRC he offered management a 3 year, 5 year, and 7 year rebuild and they chose the 7 year plan, but then fired him 3 years in. Doesn't make sense.

Yes. Hinkie is a genius. In 5 years, the Process has already succeeded.  With continued growth of their two franchise players, possibly the Lakers pick and a max FA this offseason, and whatever Fultz gives you... this is the team to beat for the future of the East.

But let's not forget all the other individuals that made this success possible:

Because he would have continued his blatant tanking even after acquiring franchise players. It was only in Collangelo's tenure that the organization decided to stop tanking by signing solid veteran players. Part of the Sixer's success this season are veteran presence like Amir, Reddick and Bellinelli.

Exactly. If you take off the green tinted glasses, their young core is just as good as ours is.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Maybe, but who's to say that's a better strategy. It simply doesn't make sense for the 76ers management to endorse a 7 year plan, and then only give him 3.

Sixers showed no improvement during his 3-year tenure. I would fire someone too if I see no improvements with the team in that time span.  At least with Danny, we see improvements every year. Let's not forget he have wasted two top 10 picks already for nothing. That's like praising the Cavs management for drafting Lebron James when it was a no-brainer.

I think people are tired of hearing the sixers and how good they're going to be.
