Scott O’Neil’s return to Twitter didn’t all go smoothly: While speaking yesterday, Chris Christie said “The only thing the 76ers will do in Philadelphia once they move into Camden is lose.” Never mind that Christie’s state gave the Sixers $80 million in tax breaks to build in Camden, and that his basketball team jumped ship for Brooklyn, and that he’s spent the last year or so doing everything except run his state… maybe before shit-talking the Sixers, he might look to see if the ownership group (and CEO) also own the Devils and Prudential Center in his trash state. I’d have drafted about ten angry fat jokes before calming down and settling on the perfect one.
At least, that’s how I imagine Scott O’Neil planned to react before sending out that soft Tweet, which he quickly deleted. Philly fans aren’t necessarily on O’Neil’s side, but this could have turned some of them.
Kyle: Deleted it probably because he realized Christie’s state basically built the practice facility for him. Why on Earth would you take a swipe at the governor, even if it is Chris Christie?
