Mo Cheeks is Back - It's hard to argue with this move by the Sixers. I am on record as saying that Mo is one of my favorites. But the jaded Philly fan in my can't help but wonder if Mo's talents are enough. At least he will be here long enough to find out. We are applauding Billy King for the guts to dump O'Brien in favor of a fan favorite, but can we ignore that previous selections. Randy Ayers was not prepared to be a head coach, but it was a easy way to continue the Larry Brown tradition. King never dug enough to uncover O'Brien's personality short comings (or perhaps he choose not to see it). Could King be attempting to hide his mis-steps behind a Philly friendly choice?
