Sixers Cat Ritual
By Shane Simononis
The Philadelphia 76ers have been the laughing stock of professional basketball the past 5 years. When Allen Iverson left, it left the team with no real stars. Now in 2017 there is a glimmer of hope: a 7 foot center named Joel Embiid who has been a phenom in the paint, and has rallied the team together to get up to 16 wins so far this season.
Outside of just the roster the fans have hope and someone they can look to, to win big games. They have created their own thing. After a picture surfaced of 76er Ben Simmons at home holding up his cats after a big win it is beginning to spread like wildfire.
Fans all over the greater Philadelphia area are catching onto this trend and it’s just beginning. Just like the winning for the 76ers is just beginning. Trust the Process.
