Well this is certainly something (H/T reader Drew Kingma). The Sixers’ official live stream – featuring Sixers reporter and pre/postgame show host Brian Seltzer, Penn head coach Steve Donahue, and radio play-by-play man Tom McGinnis – were in the midst of gushing about the team’s #10 overall pick Mikal Bridges when the unthinkable happened: he got traded.
Let’s break this down:
Mikal is great. His mom works here. She’s really nice.
Zhaire Smith was drafted by Phoenix, no big deal.
Wait. What? Are you hearing this?!
Zhaire wore yellow sneakers and was our guy all along!
I have to give the guys credit, especially McGinnis. He went from waxing poetic about Bridges, to being dejected, then collected himself, and finally offered up some insight on Zhaire’s workout.
