I was rummaging through Twitter the other day and I found a pretty interesting article about the Sixers CEO Adam Aron and what he thinks of the Sixers right now. Adam was on WIP after the Sixers win against the Cavs on Tues with Spike Eskin.
Actually, Spike had on Michael Levin from the website LibertyBallers.com, talking about the Sixers when Adam Aron decided to call in. Michael actually is the one who wrote the article.
Adam went on hold for Michael so he could finish his conversation with Spike. Now that is pretty badass to see a CEO to go on hold for just a blogger. That tells you a lot of the kind of person Adam must be.
Then Mike, hopefully he does not mind me calling him mike decided to write this article saying how cool it was that Adam went on hold for him, decided to bash him. Nice. He bashed Adam for his comments about the Sixers future. Adam said that he was happy with the progress that the Sixers are making. That the arena is full and that the people are really into the game now. That even when the Sixers lose he still has people saying, “Man, that was a great game”. Mike took this comment as if the Adam does not really care about winning a title. I took as that Adam is happy with his product he has right now.
The goals for the new owners were to make the Sixers relevant again this year and to get people caring about the Sixers again. They have accomplished that so far. Just to throw it out there, if I am going to own a major sports team my top thing would be win a title. Some might say earn money as their top choice. If you win the title you bring in more money.
Maybe it’s the “homer” in me but I truly believe that the new ownership does want to win. I think Mike, does not realize that Adam is a fan as well. All he has to do is follow Adam on twitter to see that. Adam interacts all day long with people and he tweets a lot during Sixers games. Adam asked Spike what he thought about the up coming game on Friday against the wizards.
Just asking about that game, you know that has no real b-ball background or maybe he just wanted to hear what Spike had to say. Either way I look at it, Adam Aron and the rest of the new ownership have hit all the right buttons so far in their first year. I personally think it is hard to attack them right now. I do not see anything that needs to be bashed. Mike might have been jumping the gun with this one. I am not trying to bash Mike at all. I thought the article was very good and I recommend you read it. I just took Adam Aron comments a completely different way then he did and you might too.
