“I am gonna definitely miss Philly and the city and all the fans. Y’all showed me so much love. And it did not go unnoticed. I love you. Thank you to the city of BROTHERLY LOVE. PHILADELPHIA.”

Advice for his struggling teammate, Simmons
“Thank you to the entire 76er staff. We will always be family. And Ben. Bend ya kneeeesss 😂😂😂😂. #iwantmyparadedammit”
Then, he wrote to the fans, who are understandably still bitter over the lack of Ben’s performance during the playoffs,
“If you want this man to be great, if you expect greater from him, just [sic] say him love and positivity. That man’s got it in him to be great, man, and I believe this is something that’s going to wake him up. As mad as y’all want to be, send him some positive vibes, man.”
Then, he closes with
“That man is 24 years old.”
Therefore, reminding everyone that he’s still young and has room to grow and he also has to find that work life balance. Although, Simmons time with us is uncertain at the moment, one can only hope that it was indeed his wake-up moment. Only, time will tell, if he grows into the star player everyone sees in his potential.
Reunited with Lakers
Dwight Howard Says Goodbye to Philly and is headed to Los Angeles to reunite with the Lakers. Now, this will be Howard’s third time around with the Lakers. Yet, he’s demanding another ring.
Regarding the deal, center Dwight Howard agreed to join the team, reuniting on a one-year deal basis. Furthermore, Howard’s deal is for the veteran’s minimum exception. And thus, it cannot be signed until this Friday at 12:01 p.m. PDT. But until then, teams and players are only allowed to agree to terms of the deal not sign the deal itself. Well, it is practically a done deal. But, Understandably, both are willing to have another go around. Now, we wish him well but not against our beloved Sixers. Finally, we say goodbye to Dwight Howard.
