Sam Hinkie Name-Drops Bill Belichick In 13-Page Resignation Letter To 76ers


Philadelphia 76ers fans no longer have to trust “The Process.”

Sam Hinkie resigned as the 76ers general manager Wednesday after almost three full seasons of leading the team’s rebuilding efforts. But how he resigned was just as intriguing as him stepping down.

Hinkie sent the 76ers an exhaustive 13-page resignation letter, which even included a reference to New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s fourth-down decision against the Indianapolis Colts in 2009, which he called a “good decision,” although he points out it didn’t work.

Bryan Colangelo reportedly will be the 76ers’ new general manager, a league source told John Gonzalez of CSN Philadelphia.

You can check out the entire letter, which was obtained by ESPN, below, via Deadspin. Trust us, it’s worth the read.
