Sixers Twitter has good laugh at Bucks owner throwing shade at The Process

Sixers Twitter has good laugh at Bucks owner throwing shade at The Process

It's a joyous time for Process Trusters.

That's because the fruits of the Process Tree that Sam Hinkie planted the seeds for appear to be blooming this week. Bryan Colangelo is using the assets that Hinkie helped put in place to go out and get the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft, presumably Markelle Fultz.

That's a pretty nice get. And when you put Fultz alongside other Process originals like Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Dario Saric, the Process seems to be heading in the right direction.

That's why it seems a bit curious for the owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, Wes Edens, to be calling out the Philly Process right now.

This line came today when the Bucks introduced Jon Horst as the team's new general manager, which is fine. I'm sure he's a competent and nice guy.

The Sixers had some fun with it though.

Edens was asked at the Horst introductory press conference about what he learned from the process of hiring Horst as GM.

"The guys in Philly like to talk about the process an awful lot, I'd rather talk about the results. I feel really good about the results on this. You can have your process but I mean... process may look like it's a little bit sloppy but at the end of the day it's the result that matters. We got the right guy for the job. There's not a lot of hand wringing about what we could have done diferently."

Just as a quick reminder, the Bucks got knocked out of the 2017 NBA playoffs in the first round and last won an NBA championship in 1971. So, the results haven't exactly been worth bragging about.

Yes, they do have Giannis Antetokounmpo which is enviable but I'm not sure what else the Bucks have to brag about. Not that either team has any real on-court success to brag about lately. But The Process appears to moving along just nicely.

Sixers fans enjoyed the Twitter clapback.

Flyers mascot Gritty absolutely destroyed another mascot on social media

By now, you’ve probably seen that adorable video of Gritty experiencing snow for the very first time. It’s sweet and precious, just like our Gritty. 

The video has spread to tons of different outlets on social media, where the love for Gritty is flowing faster than the snow no one expected. Here it is again, in case you missed it. 

 

However, as it hits timelines across the league, it appears that not everyone is impressed with the video. It seems that some of the other mascots across the NHL have become a bit ticked that Gritty is getting all the love. 

Bailey, the LA Kings mascot, seems bit angry that Gritty is getting all this attention. Or maybe he’s ticked that he isn’t also getting snow. He had a few things to say on a repost of the video on social media. 

Because Gritty is well, Gritty, he couldn’t let that one go and fired back with an absolute roast of the other mascot. See his response for yourself. 

We have no words, beyond well played Gritty, well played. As far as we’re concerned, Gritty is undefeated in this league.

Gritty enjoys the wonders of snow for the first time in his life

Philadelphia was treated to something of a surprise snowstorm Thursday morning.

Weather people are not in mid-season form. They're rusty so to speak. So the accumulation this morning caught plenty of people by surprise.

But there's a bright side to the inconvenience. We all get to witness Gritty, the Flyers young mascot, experience snow for the first time. It did not disappoint. 

"Zamboni dust." Hehe.

The guy from North Dakota across the street was less in awe and more in love with the flakes:
