Billy King...competent?

I recently read an article on potential GMs for the Knicks being interviewed and read the name "Billy King" and the phrase "whose stock is on the rise" in the same sentence.

Now I know that scrapping to make the Leastern Conference Playoffs out of the Atlantic Division is not a monumental accomplishment, but the kids in Philly are looking alright. Can we safely remove Billy as keynote speaker of next year's atrocious GM summit and install Chris Wallace as his successor? Can anyone step into the Shaq-Size 22s shoes vacated by Isiah?

I posted this question to Bill Simmons. We'll see if it makes the cut.

It is an interesting question isn't it. How much of the 76ers current "success" can be attributed to Billy King?
