Sixers sideline reporter Molly Sullivan is the latest Sixers-related casualty at the WFC:
After six years as the sideline reporter for the @sixers, I have been informed that @NBCSPhilly is moving in a ‘new direction’ that does not include me…heartbreaking. I plan to write more. (Soon). Until then, thank you all for the memories.

Anyone who has ever lost a job that they were objectively good at knows how Sullivan is feeling right now. And if Brett Brown “deserved” to have the opportunity to work with the Sixers now that they’re actually sort of good, Sullivan probably did too. Here’s a video montage of Sullivan interviewing (among others) Sixer legends like Michael Carter-Williams, Hollis Thompson and Nerlens freaking Noel:
The team has improved, and Sullivan has had the opportunity in recent days to catch the post-game thoughts of deep thinkers like Joel Embiid, even when he was only 69% healthy:

The most exciting part of Sullivan’s farewell tweet is that “(Soon.)” Maybe there’s a little inside knowledge to drop now that she’s on the outside.
Best of luck, Molly, and please accept my humble apologies for the comments that are probably about to appear beneath this piece.
