Buried within yet another blog post by Kate Fagan, this one about Craig Brackins, was this little nugget:
Here’s what’s good about Brackins: he has his head on straight. He mixed with the right crowd during his time up with the Sixers, hanging around Jrue Holiday, Meeks, Evan Turner, etc.
I’m not a mind reader, but this implies that there was a “wrong” crowd to hang out with among current Sixers. I would say this crowd may be hanging out at Lil Wayne concerts, but what do I know? Turner reportedly was there also. Is that the right crowd, hanging out at concerts past midnight? I don’t know. But suggesting something like that is both enticing, for those that want to know more about the team, and dangerous, as making the sort of judgment as a beat writer won’t put you in good standing with some of the players.
Anyway, this “wrong” crowd: who do you think is in it? I have my ideas – let yours be known in the comments.
