Every team that has been tanking has plans that go beyond just tanking. And so far, Hinkie hasn't managed to do much more than horde future picks and potential picks by trading away the team's pre-tank young talent. This IS the same guy who placed the future hopes of the franchise on Andrew Bynum's blown out knees. So I wonder what it is that Hinkie is doing that is so smart. This may very well be his smartest move; kick up a bunch of dust in order to prolong the period before people begin to wonder when his plan will yield results in the won/lost column. You guys have the No 1 pick from last season's draft, the No. 3 pick this year, and don't the Sixers also have Nerlens Noel, yet another lottery pick? That is an extremely talented core. I'd be calling for Hinkie's head if the Sixers don't show major improvement in 2 seasons. If they aren't a serious contender to make the Finals in 3 seasons, Hinkie would have to go. But, I'm a Lakers fan and am probably more impatient than most NBA fans.
