The Philadelphia 76ers named Jim O'Brien, formerly coach of the Boston Celtics, as their coach of the future. The team is hoping that he builds a better relationship with franchise player Allen Iverson than his predecessor, Chris Ford.

"I have never had difficulty leading people and having people understand the expectations that I have," O'Brien said Wednesday, when he was introduced as the Philadelphia 76ers' new head coach.
And still the coaches move from team to team. Trivia question - O'Brien is just the second man to coach both the Celtics and the Sixers. Who is the other?

Yeah, he was doing a good job at Boston before ainge got there. It'll also help bring back the Celts-Sixers rivalry.
