Dude is basically ignoring everyone in the organization, and won’t be on hand for the Spectrum’s final game: “Maurice Cheeks is not scheduled to be at the Wachovia Spectrum tonight. He will not stand with Julius Erving, Bobby Jones and Moses Malone, his teammates on the 76ers’ 1982-83 NBA championship team, for the final game played at the arena where they raised a banner. He will not watch this mid-March version of the Sixers, the ones he coached until being fired in December, play the Chicago Bulls…Sixers coach Tony DiLeo said he left Cheeks a message ‘a long time ago’ and still hadn’t heard back. ‘Whenever he’s ready, I’m sure he’ll get back to me,’ DiLeo said.”
