Andy Reid Finally Speaks...

Andy Reid Finally Speaks...

...about the Philadelphia 76ers.

Andy Reid was in South Philly last night to take in the Sixers ugly loss to the New Jersey Nets. He was never acknowledged on the jumbotron, so it's unclear what kind of reception he would have received.

He did, however, chat with video guy Matt Cord about the Sixers and some other topics like three of his guys playing in the Pro Bowl.

The jokes on Twitter last night about Reid being at the game were that he was likely looking for a new defensive coordinator (Doug Collins, #1 ranked defense in the league!) but Andy said he was actually looking for some players. "I sit here and I scout. I'm looking at tight ends, defensive ends, and corners out here. There's some potential, I'll tell ya."

You hear that Brent Celek, Jason Babin, and Asante Samuel? Your job security is on shaky ground.

Andy on playing basketball back in the day:
"Actually, I did. I was a little bit lighter back in those days. I still talk to my high school basketball coach about once a week. I must have done okay, I was kind of the enforcer."

Trump upsets a bunch of NBA players, too, withdraws invite to Warriors

Have you ever been invited to a friend’s birthday party but you weren’t able to go? Once they heard you couldn’t go, they would then say, “you weren’t invited anyway?”

President Donald Trump withdrew his invitation to the Golden State Warriors and guard Steph Curry to visit the White House after winning the 2017 NBA Championship. Trump said Curry was “hesitating.”

Curry told reporters Friday that he would vote against the Warriors visiting the White House and President Trump.

Curry received support from fellow NBA players including 4-time MVP Lebron James, who denounced Trump’s taken-back invitation in his most re-tweeted post ever.

Golden State's statement:

5-time NBA Champion Kobe Bryant:

Golden State power forward and teammate Draymond Green:

Sixers forward James Michael McAdoo, who signed a two-way contract with the team in August:

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal:

Two-time All-Star Baron Davis:

After Trump's comments about the NFL and NBA in the last 24 hours and North Carolina's Men's Basketball team not visiting the White House (because of a scheduling conflict), it is hard to believe any championship-winning teams will be making the trip to the Nation’s capital anytime soon. Except the Patriots.
