Re: Sixers' preseason-opening lineup offers plenty of questions
So first-year coach Brett Brown isn't dismissing the results of the preseason games. In fact, when asked if he worries about the blowouts demoralizing his young team, Brown was nothing but honest.
"I do," he said after Friday's practice. "I think that is on me to keep it upbeat but positive and honest and all things that [are] day-to-day teaching."
So don't expect Brown to tell the players about their playoff prospects. He must, and will, deal in reality.
"It's not going to be a fake relationship, not a false environment," Brown said. "It's real, and we have to get better, end of the story."
