Not necessarily a Woj ‘bomb,’ but more of a Molotov cocktail-sized report:

Brett would still coach the Sixers. This just means he’d handle the Aussie national team in the summer, during the offseason. The 2020 Olympics take place in Tokyo and will run from July 24th to August 9th, so there wouldn’t be any interference with his Philly duties.

I would be particularly interested in seeing how Brown coaches Ben Simmons at the international level on a squad that does not include Joel Embiid, but instead features players like Patty Mills, Joe Ingles, and Aron Baynes. In 2012, Brett’s Aussie team finished 7th with a 3-3 record. They lost 119 to 86 to the United States in the quarterfinals with this roster:

  1. So what have I been up to? Well, three things.

    I got investors.
    Hired a *uck ton of writers.
    Created a premium subscriber option.
    Investors. *uck ton of writers. Subscription option.

    Are you getting it? These aren’t three separate things– they’re one thing, and they make up the new Crossing Broad. Today, we kick everyone’s ass.

  2. I would advise all Simmons stans to stay off twitter and not see Spike’s tweet comparing simmons’ offensive numbers to Fultz’s numbers. Horrible look for Ben. As far as Brett Brown, he won’t be the sixers coach by the time the 2020 olympics happen, so who cares about this.
