The Philadelphia 76ers formally introduced Nick Nurse as their new coach for the 2023-24 NBA season, this with the aim of fighting for the championship title.
In his statements to the press, the coach acknowledged that his performance will be judged by the team's performance in the postseason and by whether he manages to reach the ring.
“You have to assume it: we are going to be evaluated by how we play in the playoffs. The same thing happened in Toronto. So I imagine from day one we're going to talk about it and we're going to focus on that. We have to face it and we have to raise the level,” he expressed.
Likewise, the Philadelphia 76ers strategist considered that they have a great squad, so he will seek to remove weight from the setbacks they suffered last season.
