Interview With Ed Wade

Interview With Ed Wade

Ed Wade says "I think we have a very good chance of winning this thing."  Are you serious?  What "thing" does he think we can win?  I don't know what planet this guy is from.  He says Lofton gives you more stability in CF.. stability?  How can you have stability when you are going to be platooning a 49 year old with Jason Michaels.   He loves using the word "adequate."  Cory Lidle and Jon Lieber are "adequate."   Adequate doesn't win shit.  When was the last time you saw an "adequate" starter win you anything.

Q -- Prediction for the season? A -- I think we have a very good chance of winning this thing. I feel as strongly about this ballclub now as I did a year ago.

Cat-lover Ben Simmons raises his 2 Savannah cats to support #RaiseTheCat

It all started with a simple tweet at 1:58 p.m.

Ben Simmons asked his Twitter following about the cat.

One hour and 19 minutes later, Simmons decided to participate himself.

With his two Savannah cats.

For those out of the loop, Sixers fan @GipperGrove started the social media movement — one we can surely affirm is one the world has never seen before — in which fans raise their cats after each Sixers win, which there have been plenty of recently.

The Sixers won their third straight game on Friday night, squeaking out a 93-92 win over the Trail Blazers and are now 8-2 in their last 10 games. Joel Embiid is legit, and this team, in Year 4 of The Process, is making basketball great again in Philly. And all of this without Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 overall pick who's still rehabing a Jones fracture in his right foot.

To celebrate Simmons' cat-raising, @GipperGrove pinned this to his Twitter page.

#RaiseTheCat lives on.
