I'll be your brain
(in tribute to Simmons, I'll refer to the following as "going Hubie." But best believe I did it first.)
So you're the Philadelphia 76er's. You've committed a significant chunk of money to one of the premier young big men in the league, a human pogo stick and dominant shot-blocker who still has a tremendous amount of upside. You then part ways with the pedestrian Marc Jackson, an undersized center who has never shown much willingness to do the dirty work underneath the basket. Now, what do you do with this cap space? Obviously, you go after another raw, athletic seven-footer who can jump out of the gym and is prone to goaltending violations.
1. Can you say "team of Black fan favorites?"
(Iverson is the only All-Star who counts as a fan favorite)
2. What better way to disspell rumors that LB is secretly running your team than to make the most patently un-Brownian move in Association history?
3. I LOVE THIS GAME!!!!!!
