When Kyle Korver was a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, the women of the 215 swooned over his devastating good looks, knee-high knickers and ability to hit the long ball. My own mother fell victim to his spell and charm. My little brother's second grade teacher was fortunate to score a date with him. Apparently he's a true gentleman.
But no matter what Korver meant to the female Sixers fan base, he could never escape the male eye-testers and Basketball PhDs in Philly that hooted and hollered the Creighton product was too big of a defensive liability to truly be affective as an NBA player.
Today, that all seems like blasphemy. The advanced analytics movement of 2014 has proven Kyle Korver is one of the most valuable offensive players in the NBA this season. The Sixers will battle against this man in Atlanta tonight.
But you should be watching the HIMYM finale instead of this game anyway, fools.
