Brett Brown will likely encourage the 76ers to draft 4 future HOF players with the hopes putting the 76ers in a position to repeat the success of the Spurs.

The 76ers have officially announced the hiring of former Spurs assistant Brett Brown as their new head coach.  Brown played under coaching legend Rick Patino in college and as a coach has had experience in Australia, where he coached the national team, and has also served as director of player development for the Spurs before being promoted to an assistant under Spurs coach Greg Popovich.  The 76ers, like many other teams, have likely raided the Spurs management staff with the hopes replicating the culture that has earned the Spurs 4 NBA championships and 5 finals appearances to go along with 16 consecutive seasons of 50+ wins (or equivalent winning percentage).  In order to replicate the Spurs success, the 76ers may also want to draft players whose talent level is equal to David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Manu Ginoboli and Tony Parker, after which they can sign and draft and develop great role players, at which point they will likely be in a position to repeat the success of the Spurs so long as they can also get a coach as good as Greg Popovich.
