I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that I've given Sixers ownership more grief than anybody else out there. Articles have been written, tweets have been tweeted, and nothing changed because I don't matter and ownership doesn't care what I think. I did say that I don't think the front office is stupid, just misguided in their approach to building a basketball team.
Then they got Andrew Bynum.
Dreams were realized, there was dancing on the streets, and pessimism turned to gold. Needless to say, we were thrilled. But that also means that we were wrong. Sort of. It happens all the time, but in this case I don't think we were *that* wrong. The Sixers front office had done nothing to make me think they could pull off a move of this caliber. Thus, I feel my frustration was warranted. Even though all the tweets and comments from Adam Aron are straight cheerleading and PR, it's all we had to go by, so we had to react to it. They even said Andre Iguodala was staying in Philadelphia.
But all that said, if I dish it out, I'm going to have to be able to take it also. So who else would serve me up to the public masses (AKA four people listening to WIP at midnight on a Wednesday) other than blog friend and mainstream media liaison Spike Eskin. I went on Sports Radio WIP last night to talk about Bynum, but it turned out it was all just a sneak attack to get me to apologize to Adam Aron. Read Spike's story and listen to the interview here. But here's all you really need to know:
"Adam Aron, I am sorry for being so mean to you on the internet," Levin said.
