The Sixers finished the 2016-17 season with a 28-54 record which is an 18 win increase over last season.  Despite injuries to Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Jerryd Bayless and other players who were expected to contribute, Head Coach Brett Brown was able to maximize the talents of role players forced into the starting lineup.  The 76ers saw Robert Covington and T.J. McConnell have career seasons while Dario Saric showed he can be a great complimentary player when the team starts to contend for championships.

CSN Philly Sixers Pre and Post Game Analyst Marc Jackson joined The Sports Bash on Thursday and gave his impressions of the job Brett Brown did this season:

"He did an excellent job given the cards he was dealt, you didn’t know who was going to be in the lineup, you didn’t know who had the green light, red light, yellow light. He didn’t know those things so with the season he had coaching this team that was banged up, I thought it was great for him. I thought it was also great for him to develop his coaching, learned to do more with less; I think that can always help a coach because when you get more talent it helps you learn to play with players who may not be at the same skill level.“
