The Clippers' plane had to stop to let Byron Mullens off yesterday after he got traded

The Clippers' plane had to stop to let Byron Mullens off yesterday after he got traded

The NBA trade deadline is a pretty exciting day for fans hoping their team could make the big move at any moment that could right the Brett Brown ship with eight holes in it. But it's obviously not all that fun for those who actually play in the league whose place of residence and work could be drastically altered in a matter of moments all by the decisions of a couple of GMs.

Comcast SportsNet interviewed Evan Turner 15 minutes after the 3:00 pm deadline had passed and he spoke about finishing out the season in Philadelphia. He hadn't yet heard of being dealt to Indiana just yet.

But that doesn't seem nearly as bad as what happened to Byron Mullens and the Clippers. They were sitting on the runway in L.A. waiting to head to Memphis for a game but apparently their plane was having some issues so they just kept sitting there like normal shlubs.

ESPNLA.com's Arash Markazi spoke with Clipper Matt Barnes who said told him the team was stuck on the plane in silence, looking at Twitter for like twp hours.

"No one was really talking. We were looking around and the captain said [the delay was caused by] bad weather and we're like, 'Yeah, bulls---, we're waiting for that trade deadline.' I'm just glad it's over.

In fact, the plane began moving shortly before the noon PT deadline in Los Angeles but then had to stop.

Antawn Jamison had been traded to the Atlanta Hawks and Byron Mullens had been traded to the Philadelphia 76ers.

"I saw that the trade was official and then saw that it wasn’t," Barnes said. "And then saw that Antawn got traded and then saw that Byron got traded. We had to stop the plane to let them off."

Awk-ward.

It wouldn't be surprising if Mullens never even made it to Philly. The Sixers reportedly already waved Earl Clark, one of the other players Sam Hinkie traded for on Thursday.

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
