After a surprising 3-0 start, the Sixers teetered off and now find themselves just 13-25 and out of playoff contention.

Yet, Sixers coach Brett Brown uses every win and loss as a time to develop his young players.

Brown called "The Sportsbash" on Tuesday afternoon to talk about his young team who are just about at the midway point of the season.

"The way Michael Carter-Williams has come on the scene and banged out mature games and games with numbers, you wonder 'what if' years down the road," Brown said.

Carter-Williams missed some time this season with a skin infection, but when the rookie is in the lineup, the Sixers look like they have a promising young point guard.

Veteran players Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes are also flourishing under Brown and his teachings with both players averaging career highs in points per game.

Brown also addresses rookie center Nerlens Noel and when we can expect to see him suit up for the Sixers if at all this season.

"He's right on track," Brown labeled Noel.
