The answer: They both helped start a great movement.
As Brown and the 76ers...
Brett Brown has been unabashedly honest in saying that the development of Michael Carter-Williams is one of his highest priorities this season. The first-year 76ers coach also said he'll be getting help in that realm leaning upon second-year guard Tony Wroten to bring along the rookie point guard out of Syracuse.
“It's a big-boy stage and there's a physicality Tony...
By the end of last season even point guard Jrue Holiday had to admit that he was a little worn down. The All-Star point guard said he was a victim of his position because he not only had to to find scoring opportunities for himself but also for others.
