Player coach….player coach

I’m stealing this idea from Bill Simmons, but I think the Sixers should seriously consider signing some old point guard and have him be player coach. Think about it, not only do you save the money but you generate a ton of interest at least for the first 20 or so games during the season. And if he sucks then you just bring in a coach. I don’t see a downside to it at all besides the backlash about it being a complete circus. But, if I were Ed Stefanski I’d just shrug off the circus notions and say hey we’re trying something different…Candidates for player coach could be (I’ll leave out Andre Miller (ouch))….Some unrestricted free agents….Steve Blake….Earl Boykins….Juwan Howard…….and ready for this the perfect player coach Grant Hill
