Yes, Brett Brown has a beard for probably the same reason as most people have beards: he's just too lazy to shave.
That's it. There's no great story behind his offseason beard other than it's summer and the dude just wants to relax. No, he's not trying to go full Popovich.
Coach Brown spoke to the media on Thursday and talked about important basketball things, but also facial hair.
He does mention that the beard may help him go incognito a bit during the summer with a baseball hat and a pair of shades.
But the Sixers coach says he's looking forward to getting back to coaching and that likely means the beard gets cut like a second round draft pick.
