Philadelphia 76ers guard Nik Stauskas said that “The Process” is over and that it is time for the 76ers to actually start winning some games, according to William Lou of The Score.
“We’ve dealt with what people called ‘The Process’ for a long time,” said Stauskas on Wednesday. “It’s time that ‘The Process’ is over, it’s time that we start winning games, and start competing. That’s really the main goal moving forward.”
Some do feel that Philadelphia will actually be decent this year and that it will compete for a playoff spot in the weak Eastern Conference.
With the Sixers adding the likes of veterans J.J. Redick and Amir Johnson this offseason to go along with their infusion of young talent, Stauskas is excited for the season, and he is especially excited to play with Redick.
“(Redick is) someone that I look up to. He was a guy that, as a young player in the league, he made strides every year and he continuously got better,” he said. “Because J.J. Redick wasn’t this level of player when he first came in. He was a great player at Duke, but it took him some time to figure it out. It’s someone who I feel like I could learn a lot from this year as far as his regiment and routines, and his mentality towards the game. I’m really looking forward to playing alongside him.”
The 76ers won 28 games last year and have not made the playoffs since the 2011-12 campaign. From 201-154 through 2016-17, Philadelphia collected just 47 wins in total.
