Here we come! As you can hear, the Sixers are already the talk of the NBA.
Warriors big man Javale McGee hosted his annual softball game over the weekend and it featured a number of Golden State players, including Andre Igudala and Kevin Durant. Well, the camera-phones were rolling and picked up those three discussing the “F.E.D.S.” nickname. (Also, give credit to Eagles writer Alex Smith on creating all this talk about the nickname he cooked up).
As you can see, Iggy broke it down for all to hear and Durant fired back with the obvious, “How they got a nickname and ain’t play no games together!” HAHAHAHA LOVE THIS!
A few things come to mind. For starters, I’m willing to say that 35% of Sixers fans that tweeted me, said the exact same thing KD did.
Also, it seems that most Sixers fans are ready to look elsewhere for a new name. I gave my take on all things Sixers (Nicknames, Chick-Fil-A and are they a playoff team) over the weekend on FOX 29.
