When Malvern resident Netanya Sortland jumped from the top of a 10-story building in Lancaster a year ago, she hoped more of her Chester County colleagues would go with her.

McCaffer: As management mistakes and play-off losses grow, the Sixers are back from where they started

Jimmy Butler defeated the 76ers in the second round of the playoffs, scoring at will, in big places, against a variety of defenses. Then, just in case not noticed enough, demolished them again. “Tobias Harris?” he growled in a burst recorded on video, “over me?” A fair question, how could a man who once tried to coach him say, but only with an emphasis on the state of Maine. Although nothing in professional sports is ever so simple, Butler’s impeccable back thought provided an important topic for conversation. A brief version of his resentment was that he was a 76er, preferring to remain a 76er, but in 2019 he was denied a contract that would soon pass to Harris. So Butler put the cannonball into a pool of free agents. And even if he missed some vital issues – in particular that he was a notorious internal pest who demanded to attend coach meetings among other rude actions – his remark really said a lot about how the Sixers got back to where they started.
