As soon as I arrived from the LA Clippers in February, I could see the possibilities with this group of players, organization and city. We’ve got unfinished business, and I’m ready to commit to a long-term vision of bringing a title to Philadelphia. From the moment I arrived in Philadelphia, the city has embraced me. This is an incredible sports town, and it’s hungry for an NBA title. So are the Sixers — and so am I.
We had a talented group and made a great run all the way to Game 7 against the eventual NBA champions, the Toronto Raptors. We will always remember Kawhi Leonard’s shot bouncing on the rim and, finally, falling through the net. It was a heartbreaking loss, the kind that motivates you to want to get back into the playoffs — and go even further.
Basketball is more than our family business; it’s our family passion.
Both of my brothers will be playing for NBA teams in the Vegas Summer League. My brother Tyler will be playing for the Denver Nuggets’ entry in the Las Vegas Summer League, and Terry will be playing for the 76ers there. My young sister, Tori, recently enrolled at St. Bonaventure University on a basketball scholarship. And my father, well, he’s always been an important part of my life — and my basketball career.
