Is a new chapter near in Brown’s Philadelphia story?...“I will tell you that I did not come even close to thinking that it would be a four-year thing,” said the 56-year-old Brown on Sunday just before he and the rest of the 1979 Class A state champion South Portland High School boys basketball team were inducted into the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame at the Cross Insurance Center.“We just went through some rough luck with injuries. I had multiple draft picks that didn’t play for a whole year, not just miss a chunk of games but didn’t even play.”No one can anticipate future physiological setbacks, but things finally may be looking up for Brown and the 76ers.http://bangordailynews.com/2017/08/21/s ... hia-story/
