Hey, a positive story about Sixers ownership!

Two days ago, Sixers limited partner Michael Rubin was “upset” and “outraged” at the organization’s decision to temporarily reduce salaries of team employees (I guess he hadn’t checked his “Sixers owners” Slack channel in a few days?):

After the organization quickly rescinded that decision, Rubin is now taking a page out of good friend Joel Embiid’s playbook and doing his part to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the many hats Rubin wears is as the Executive Chairman at popular sportswear retailer Fanatics; he announced today that the company’s factory in Pennsylvania is donating masks and gowns to frontline workers in the state.

Props to Michael Rubin and all the people over at Fanatics for assisting workers in the midst of this crisis. Sixers ownership just can’t stay out of the news this week; I’m sure glad it’s for an extremely positive reason this time.
