The Raps fired Nick Nurse and the Sixers have hired him as coach.
Here’s what his philosophy is:
“You’ve got to instill that you’re playing to win the game,” Nurse said on the Old Man and the Three podcast with JJ Redick and Tommy Alter last year.
“And I always say 1A. is can we increase each player’s value in the marketplace? And No. 1 always helps that. The guys that make the All-Star teams are always from the winning teams. The guys that win the end-of-year awards are always from the winning teams. Those things are really closely related.”
“You’ve got to coach winning”
