As we are all waiting for training camp to open, I have decided to go through some of the highlights from “Media Day”. Gotta love media day. That’s when the players and the media play “nice, nice” with each other. It really is rather cute.
–Chris Vito of the Daily Times reported that Kwame Brown (who is injured already) entered through the PCOM doors with a plate full of food in the very beginning of the day. Glad to see Kwame working hard on that new Brett Brown rule of being in top shape. Kwame being Kwame.
-Hey, guess what? Royce White is not afraid to fly after all. He said that his afraid of flying is a big misconception. He said that he will fly when he has to, drive when he can. He also said that he he will make the trip to plans to Europe. Interesting.
-Some of the media members asked Nerlens Noel about his flat-top. They asked him if he thought that his hair style would become a Sixers-wide fad. Noel’s reply, “Nah, they’re all grown men.” Shit, sounds like I am asking these questions.
-I do love me some Khalif Wyatt, but the dude already is rocking Jrue’s old number 11. Yes, I know, let it go Joe.
-We found out that Arnett Moultrie had ankle surgery yesterday. He suffered left ankle medial malleolus injury and is likely out until January. We also found out that J-Rich is likely out until January. Saw that coming.
-Evan Turner was asked about his take on the Holiday trade. Turner: “just shocked we traded Jrue” via Philly.com. Turner also said how it took guts by Sam Hinkie to pull off the trade.
-Speaking of Hinkie, he had the quote of the day. Hinkie was talking about how he thought that camp would be competitive. He talked about this: “You’ll eat what you kill”. Well, then…
– I spoke too soon. Highlight of the day? Well, that goes to Turner. Why? Take a looksie…
