You’ve got to hand it to 75-year-old Larry Brown. At the end of his career after being suspended from his job at SMU. the former Sixers’ coach still thinks he can fix the Sixers:

“I’m sick of what’s going on there,” Brown told a Philly-based web site.

Brown is hopeful that old friend 76-year-old Jerry Colangelo will guide them in the right direction.

“You know I care about the Sixers. It’s an unbelievable basketball city and I had a great experience there. I don’t want to get on them when they’re struggling, but they don’t have any veteran leadership. I want to help. I could straighten it out in five minutes. I wish they’d get Allen involved. All those young kids worship him.”

Brown was suspended by the NCAA for 30% of the Mustangs’ games in the upcoming 2015-2016 season, and the team was banned from 2016 post-season play, placed on probation for three years, and lost nine scholarships over a three-year period, “due to a lack of head coach control.”
