Barkley thinks Eddie Jordan should coach the Sixers

Charles Barkley and Ed Stefanski have something in common...They both think Eddie Jordan should be the next coach of the Sixers.

Of course, only one of them can make it happen and Stefanski is continuing his public relations fueled farce that is the Sixers coaching search.

Hoping to convince you the fan and the local media that Jordan's imminent hiring was the part of some exhaustive search and vetting process, the Sixers GM has wasted a not of people's time over the past couple of weeks.

Tom Thibodeau, Chris Ford, Kurt Rambis, Jay Wright and Dwane Casey have all been interviewed but Jordan has been the guy from the get-go.

Thibodeau, who is officially out of the running, seems like the best fit but Barkley threw his support behind Jordan on Thursday.

“They’re pretty much stuck with the team they’ve got for the next few years because they’re paying guys so much money,” Barkley said during a conference call to promote his appearance at a celebrity golf championship. . “But I think Eddie Jordan would be a good coach. He did a good job with the Washington team. They probably overachieved, him getting to the playoffs every year."
