It's Friday, Time to Dance

In case you haven't heard, your Philadelphia 76ers, fresh off of winning the 2nd pick in the 2010 NBA draft, have signed Doug Collins to a four-year deal to be the head coach.

Collins, of course, played for the 76ers back in the day. He also was the coach Michael Jordan got fired in Chicago before Phil Jackson stepped in and the Bulls won all of those championships. And the coach Michael handpicked years later to coach the Wizards during his comeback. He coached Grant Hill too, you know, when Grant was a superstar.

I have no idea if this hire is a good thing or a bad thing. It certainly isn't an exciting one. And it's actually kind of sad, because Doug is an awesome analyst. TNT will surely miss him. But in honor of Doug, who's always seemed like a great guy and a man who certainly knows all there is to know about basketball, dance til your heart's content to the theme song from Doug.

BallHype: hype it up!
