What's Evan Tweeting? Pre-Season Edition

What's Evan Tweeting? Pre-Season Edition

It's a long NBA off-season, and while Andrew Bynum is busy bending his knee backwards to see how long he can go without wincing, the other Philadelphia 76ers only know one way of
coping with the spare time and restlessness: Endless tweeting. Most
notably, Evan Turner, Twitter team MVP for each of his two seasons as a
Liberty Baller (with no threat to the throne coming anytime soon), takes
to social media to share his thoughts on life, love, the pursuit of
happiness and J. Cole song lyrics.

While hopefully all of you are already following his timeline
religiously, it'd be journalistically irresponsible for us to not keep
you guys posted on what the Extraterrestrial's been tweeting recently.
So here's what Evan's been sharing on the Bluebird in the last few weeks:

Declaring His Baahhhhston Film Allegiances:

Composing Observational Slice-of-Life Haikus:

Wishing Marshall a Happy 40th:

Encouraging Hate Crimes Against Teammates:

Putting His Teammates on Blast for Being Cute:

Feeling Adam Levine on a Lazy Sunday:

Plotting Action Movie Franchises:

Being a Cheap Date:

Hating When People Get Caught Up in Their Own Wants and Blaming It on Him Cause He Isn't Giving It to Them:

Saying "F--- You!" to Sports Illustrated's Division Prediction for the Sixers:

And in honor of election season, some bonus tweet running debate commentary from the Big GOPper, Spencer Hawes:

Hey Spence, who you voting for this year?

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks okay," Embiid, always his toughest critic, said.
