So About The Sixers Going to the Lil Wayne Concert 12 Hours Before Yesterday's Loss...
After yesterday's game (which started at noon, btw), Lou Williams told the media that it might not have been a good idea for him and some of his teammates to attend the Lil Wayne concert on Saturday night.
I can't imagine why. Those rap concerts get over pretty early. [Philly.com]
"It was a combination of things, and it doesn't seem we came out ready to play," he said. "We took a chance last night by going to the Lil Wayne concert."
Williams did not say which teammates attended Saturday's concert at the Wells Fargo Center. "There were guys who went to the concert who played well, and guys who went who didn't play well," he said.
Count Williams and Mo Speights among those who attend and didn't play well… or at all.
Speights has been a DNP for the last 10 days, but his Tweets seem to indicate how late the players were out, or at least up, on Saturday night… Sunday morning: 3:27 A.M.
According to my Twitter client, that Tweet above came at 2:45 A.M., with the last Tweet from Speights coming almost an hour later:
Judging by the fact that NBA players are usually expected to be at the arena a few hours before the game, I'm sure the players got a good night's sleep…
Lou Will's shooting line? 1-for-12 from the field, with his only basket coming at the final buzzer. That's when he woke up.
Sixers basketball, feel the excitement!
