    He'll be named GM of the Duke Blue Devils any day now.

    It's amazing he hung on this long.

    Hopefully, more terrible executives will get the boot soon (Hello there Mr. Thomas!)

    The former Nets GM has taken over for King. I forget his name at the moment.

    Wait. A Duke grad who isn't successful in the NBA. That's a new one.

    Hey now, Danny Ferry sure made an impact.

    Name is Ed Stefanski. Did a good job assembling a decent team in NJ. Wasn't the main architect, but had input. Hopefully he'll focus on the draft as a rebuilding tool and use second round picks on promising European players the Sixers actually intend on keeping.

    He'll also have plenty to of money to work with since Philly will have a ton of cap room this summer, not that many players will be lining up to play there. It's going to be a while before the Sixers will even compete for a playoff spot let alone contend to win a title of any kind.

    King was a horrible GM who put too much emphasis in trading for use-to-be stars to pair with Iverson. He also ignored European players pretty much all together. The only thing he was good at was getting rid of ridiculous contracts he gave out (see Mutumbo, Dikembe).

    I'm thinking someone else will quote this post if she's online this evening.
