Adam Aron, Too, Wants More Ping Pong Balls

When I woke up this morning – by Hayley pawing at the sides of the bed 30 minutes earlier than usual, at 6:30, since she was alone for six hours last night while I filmed Great Sports Debate and hosted Jim Carrey quizzo and because it’s written in her DNA that she must play, pee or eat rabbit poop every three goddamn hours (!) – I thought to myself, “Self, what sort of mediocrity-celebrating Tweets will Adam Aron fire out into the ether today?” 

These, apparently:

He has to be the first team CEO or President, or coach or executive or anyone on the payroll to publicly acknowledge the desire to tank in order to get a higher draft pick. But I’m glad he’s rooting for the bottom to fall out stay out so the Sixers can, for the 20th year in a row, get some young talent. 

I can’t imagine David Stern agrees with me, however. A team’s CEO tweeting the difficulty of the remaining schedule to imply that hey, we’re gonna lose! doesn’t say much about the compete level. Then again, signing Nick Young and Kwame Brown already made that much apparent.

  1. Resign Andrew Bynum, trade our draft pick for Brandon Roy and we’ll be stacked next year. Lets do this!

  2. If they won last night… that would have been our NBA Championship. I was jerking it so hard in the last couple of minutes until Jrubaby dribbled it off his foot and the retard Spence missed the lay-up. I knew it wasn’t meant to be

  3. Now here are some realistic tweets I can get on boar with!
    On another note, I love the commenters on here who make note of Kyle’s “reporting.” I’m not sure they grasp the concept of a blog yet…

  4. These are great Adam Aron scriptuals.
    The intro to this post gives us valuable insight into the Sixers as well, will recommend.

  5. Tom Madden’s right. There’s no blow-you-away college kids on the level of Kevin Durant or Euroballers like Ricky Rubio showing up in this year’s draft. And since the Sixers will pick somewhere between 7 and 10 depending on where they finish in the standings, there figures to be nothing but dreck by then anyway. That said, Aron had better hope to get lucky in free agency, and even that’s a monstrous long shot.

  6. This is where the NBA falls short. Even with the #2 overall pick a few years ago nothing has changed so what the hell does another high pick get us? Wow, maybe we can get lucky and make it to a 6th seed again.
    I’ll save some of you some time. The 2013 & 2014 & 2015 NBA Champs will be either Heat/Thunder. Nothing to see here.

  7. Hop Devil, you know that commercial, “What would you doooooooooo for a Klondyke bar”? I would do you six ways to sunday, if you know what i mean…

  8. Brandon Roy? Are you high? Guy’s knees are cooked worse than Bynum’s. GTFO.
