"I think that's one of the silliest things that I've seen in sports in a long time," Barkley said on Comcast SportsNet's Friday edition of "Philly Sports Talk." "I'm in Philly during the summer as you know, and I'm watching and reading every day -- to not have a coach under contract by now, I think that's a joke. I don't know what they're waiting on. You're playing summer-league games, people need to know who's in charge. They got players who are playing in the summer league, they got assistant coaches coaching the team. You just can't bring somebody in, and him have instant credibility -- he has to build rapport with the players."

Why don't they go after George Karl or Lionel Hollins? Those would be fantastic choices.

Lionel Hollins would be good, and I know people around here would love to bring him in as coach. Philly's management has always been indecisive and cheap so I believe that factors into this.

All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

Teams that think waiting like this will help them are delusional. Best coaches are gone in the first few weeks. Why would you wait and get the scrubs?
