Sixers extend Cheeks' contract

Wednesday, February 20, 2008 ·

The Sixers and coach Maurice Cheeks agreed to a one year contract extension Wednesday, giving him until the 2008-09 season to get Philly back in the playoffs.

“Coach Cheeks has done a very good job of installing an up-tempo brand of basketball that puts this team in a position to succeed on a nightly basis and we are excited about the future under his direction, Sixers president Ed Stefanski said.

He's a good coach in my opinion. He has this team set to win. They are a much better team without AI. Giving him another year will allow him more time with a better team.

I'm not an NBA buff but I figured this was important news.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
