I have to say, I'm happy to see Morey make this move. I was so afraid Mike D was just fair accompli.

I hope Nurse will be the key in the push to establish a development program for the 76ers' young players to surround Embiid with length and athleticism, get away from this reliance on older vets just because they're older vets.

I also think we'll see a fresher offensive approach and a better conceived defensive philosophy.

Agreed Bel.

The more I read about him, the more he seems he's not afraid to challenge the young players and let them develop while on the court.

The one bad thing I read is that he does like to work his best players hard (long game time minutes) which I am not sure how thats going to work out with Embiid.

wont happen but i'd like to see Morey gone as well. Myers, the Warriors' GM, just resigned. Pipe dreams.

I think his playing of his starters in Toronto was a product of his limited roster and no star. He had no one but Siakam and VanVleet, so he had to rely on them to play major minutes.
