There’s a good chance you had no idea who was going to play for the 76ers last night after the 76ers traded away MCW and KJ but a legend (in my books) was back in the lineup after 2 years of not playing: former dunk champ Jason Richardson!
J-Rich started off the game the way I would expect a 76er who hasn’t played in 2 years to play – with an airball. But Richardson finished with an impressive stat line of 7 points, 7 boards, 2 assists, 2 steals and a block in just 18 minutes.
After the game, Richardson tweeted how happy he was to be playing again and thanked fans for supporting him, but of course Twitter being Twitter, some idiot had to say something negative to Richardson. Jason replied with a great response which caused hundreds of other Twitter users to attack the idiot who seems to be loving all of the attention he’s receiving now. So here’s a little more.
