Sixers-Kings Postponed Due To Court Condensation, Circus Ensues

New, comments

I tried to condense (pats self on back) and deliver the story with the help of social media.

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Sixers were set to tip-off with the Kings at 7PM the Wells Fargo Center tonight, and then they weren’t. With the court soaking wet during pre-game warmups due to condensation, and following a 20-minute delay ok’ed by the league office, the team made the call to postpone the game until further notice.

Team CEO Scott O’Neil chimed in on the situation:

And if you thought that court wasn’t that wet? It was that wet.

With the likelihood of playing the game clearly dwindling, players started to come out of their respective locker rooms to talk to the media and assess the situation for themselves.

Boogie Cousins took matters into his own hands.

And once word spread the game was going to be called off, more nonsense ensued.

(Geno’s is obviously a nonsensical choice, with Tony Luke’s only a couple extra-mile hike)

So, the game has been rescheduled for a date TBA. I can speak for pretty much everyone when I say I’m glad Joel Embiid didn’t have to participate in a basketball game with a sporadically wet floor. Now we can enjoy the Boogie-Process battle with (a little) less to worry about, whenever that may be.
