76ers Jordan gets no guarantee from Stefanski

Yikes!

Quote:
Before tonight's game against the Toronto Raptors, Stefanski answered questions regarding his team, which entered the game with a 10-24 record - second-worst in the Eastern Conference.

"I'm not happy at all," he said. "[I'm] frustrated. I'm not the only one. Obviously, the coaches and players are frustrated and not happy. And the fans aren't, and they shouldn't be. I'm an emotional and passionate person, especially when it comes to my job and the Sixers, and we're not getting the job done. And my emotions are that I'm not happy."

Last week, Jordan described himself as "not disappointed."

"I'm a positive, encouragement coach - I told the team that the other day," Jordan said on Dec. 30. "I'm not here to beat you guys up; I'm here to coach you, encourage you, and show you the benefits of playing the right way. And I knew it was going to be a progression, a gradual progression . . . you have to go through a little struggle to make sure your roots are planted in the ground to be sure you're stronger when the season comes at the end."

Last season, the Sixers finished 41-41, losing a first-round playoff series to the Orlando Magic. A month later, Stefanski hired Jordan.

At what point this season would Stefanski consider a coaching change?

"One thing is, I said, I'm very unhappy," Stefanski replied. "Everyone - coaches, players, and myself - and I'm going to pinpoint myself - we're all accountable on this whole thing. We review daily. I don't think there's a certain time you say, 'Change.' Everyone in the organization is accountable, and I'm accountable to upstairs."

He was referring to team owners.

How would Stefanski review Jordan's performance?

"I'm not happy with anything," Stefanski said.

He'll be lucky to last the season.

Wizards, Bulls, sixers, NO, Indiana & maybe Utah are about to have a yard sale.
