Doug Collins proudly proclaims that Kwame Brown will be the starting center for the Sixers

Three things come to mind when we think about Kwame Brown actually being a starting center in the NBA. There are actually more, but we’ll just keep at three in respect for your time. You’re welcome.

  1. Why is Kwame Brown still allowed to steal money
  2. Are the Sixers that desparate to shed the “all small forward” team stigma that they’re turning to Kwame Brown?
  3. Why is Kwame Brown still allowed to steal money?

But enough of how we feel about all this, let’s hear why Doug Collins thinks that Kwame Brown can be a starting center in the NBA.

Speaking Tuesday afternoon at a news conference at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Collins said he expects to start Brown and slide Spencer Hawes, last season’s starting center, over to power forward in a lineup that will also see Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, and Andre Iguodala back in the starting lineup.

“I think when people view Kwame Brown they look at a guy who was a bust as the No. 1 draft pick in the NBA,” Collins said, “and that’s not what we’re signing him for. I had him at that period in time when he was 19 years old, and I understand the pressure that young guy was under. I wish I could go back and be a better coach and a better mentor for him at that time.”

“Again, we’re not asking him to come in here and be the No. 1 pick like back then,” Collins said. “He’s coming to a place where he feels good about. I think we’re going to see the best of what Kwame has to offer.”

Good luck with that, Doug. And to Sixers fans, we’re sorry.
