We all have our heroes. Some play basketball. Some average 6.1 points per-game for the Philadelphia 76ers.
During Monday night's game with the Boston Celtics, the fan in the green shirt -- let's call it "Baby Asparagus" -- just couldn't pass up a chance to get a court-level shot of Hollis Thompson. In that situation, who wouldn't? I know I would. I think you'd be sick not to get this shot for for your IG. THIS GUY'S GOT A FEVER AND THE ONLY PRESCRIPTION IS MORE THOMPSON.
Why is that kid to the left so mad? If I owned what looks to be a retro Mo Cheeks jersey, I'd be pretty pumped, that's all I'm saying.
Maybe he was just recording the moment for history, as the Sixers picked up their 18th win on the season, 113-108.
