ANOTHER NIGHT WHERE WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT FURKAN KORKMAZ PLAYING THE STRETCH OF BASKETBALL SINCE KOBE IN JANUARY 2006 BUT INSTEAD WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS:
So, apparently Sixers players shushing the crowd who have rightfully been criticizing them is going to be a trend. Last week, after an 0-4 road trip, people ripped this team for being tone deaf and not understanding optics.
Partying at the Super Bowl. Ben staying in Miami. They just don’t seem to get it. Now, after one of the rare times where the fans are actually correct in criticizing these guys, they want to play the “shush” card. They just don’t get optics.
But, I will say this about #ShushGate, it can actually work because it is a burn the boats move. If you are going to be a dick on purpose to your own fans, you better play the most productive ball of your life. Joel Embiid scored 28 points tonight. He closed the game with a huge three and sealed it with a steal on the other end. He got double-digit free throw attempts and finally did his damage from the paint instead of the perimeter. If you are going to play like that, Embiid can walk off the court middle fingers blazing and put his dick on the scorers table and tell us to suck it. Who cares, as long as you are winning and producing.
It’s Al Horford who can’t use this celebration. Guy silences the crowd on Friday and then goes scoreless tonight. If he is supposed to be a mentor for Embiid, he would be the kid who graduated two years ago but is hanging around high school kids after he failed out of community college and now does oil changes at Pep Boys. Guy sucks.
But once again, this night cannot be about the negatives. It needs to be about Kurkman Forkballz playing absolutely out of his mind! Ho hum, just another 30+ point night for Furk off the bench:
Back-to-back 30 point games for Furkan Korkmaz 🔥
