Basketball tonight in South Philadelphia!
To get the fanbase even more pumped for The Most Important Sixers Season in a Decade, the sports talkers on 94 WIP had starting point guard Jrue Holiday on their airwaves on Tuesday afternoon. Jrue talked to Anthony Gargano and Rob Ellis about the new-look team as well as the reception he expects from the WFC crowd for his boy Andre Iguodala tonight.
On Dre Coming Back: "You know, that's my man."
"Coming back here, I think hopefully it will be somewhat good for him. I feel
very strongly, probably 94% that he’s going to get booed."
"I'm excited to see he's doing well, that he didn't just go a team that was complete trash, he actually went to a good team. I think he's done a lot for our team. Especially young guys like me, there's so many things he does well. I think he's one of the best in-game dunkers I've ever seen in my life."
On Maalik Wayns: "Young boy's good. He can rock. He's an NBA player."
On Andrew Bynum: "I actually have no clue [when we'll see him return]. I know if I was hurt or something that's not something I'd want to talk about all the time. When we talk, it's kind of like teammate conversations. We talk about whatever. We can't really bet on when he's coming back. Right now we got to play like he's not."
See you at the Wells Fargo Center tonight.
