What's Okie Sam Hinkie's plan in Philly? Published: March 28, 2014

Marlow native Sam Hinkie is the general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers, who are in the midst of the longest current losing streak in professional sports.

Twenty-six consecutive defeats. Is this part of Hinkie's master plan?

Mike Sielski of the Philadelphia Inquirer wrote about what Hinkie is trying to accomplish in Philly. The Sixers' young core is in a record-setting decline, but it's also a part of a bigger plan, one fostered from Hinkie's days with the Houston Rockets.
