This is the most exciting Sixers news since Adam Aron didn’t gave us a mascot.
Nerlens Noel is endearing himself to Philadelphia the only way he knows how– by joining the citywide disdain for Sidney Crosby.
CBS Philly reports that Noel stopped by Cheeseteak Tees this week and did something you might appreciate:
Noel stopped by Cheesesteak Tees at 506 South St on Wednesday night, and bought an “I Hate Sidney Crosby” shirt. The store sellsnovelty shirts centered around Philadelphia sports. Every time I walk by I think about buying the one with Iverson stepping over Tyronn Lue. I guess when you sign a first round NBA contract and you see a t-shirt you want, you don’t have to think very much about it.
Tom Hogg, who works at the store, said Noel was friendly, took a picture, and was the “coolest guy ever.”
That’s kewal and all, but without seeing the I Hate Sidney Crosby shirt, I’ll say that we much prefer this jam from our friends at Philly Phaithful:
You can, of course, get one of those shirts right… hither.
