Adam Aron, Too, Wants More Ping Pong Balls

Kyle Scott - March 14, 2013

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.

And yes, that is a 30-inch high inflatable Smirnoff bottle in the corner

We’ve discovered more pictures from Claude Giroux’s weekend. 

Following some Baggo at the North Shore Swim Club in Northern Liberties on Saturday and mugging with John Bolaris ex-Playboy girlfriend, Erica Smitheman, on Sunday, G continued the party at his house, where he smoked this girl in beer pong:

Yeah, no shit he does, Santino. Crushing at beer pong despite sizable post-op casts on both wrists? Ginger strong.

It was Giroux's second night in a row playing beer pong with the locals, it seems. This Tweet, 24 hours earlier:

Somewhere, Paul Holmgren prepares his musket. DON'T SHOOT, PAUL! DON'T SHOOT!
