From his take on embattled rookie Jahlil Okafor to the timeline for this Sixers rebuild to his relationship with Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to reflections about his upbringing as a Davy Crockett of sorts in his hometown of Portland, Maine, Brown is honest, entertaining and insightful all the way through.
