Rich Paul has weaponized Twitter to force a Ben Simmons Furkan Korkmaz trade by the end of 2021
Furkan Korkmaz. Rich Paul. Russia. What do all three of these things have in common? You guessed it: Ben Simmons. Now, I want you to understand that I am 100% serious about what I am about to say. I think an innocent twitter search has led me to stumble upon the greatest conspiracy in NBA History.
Forget about the rigged draft lottery to send Ewing to the Knicks. The frozen envelope debacle has nothing on what news we are breaking right now here at The Liberty Line.
As you can clearly see, I have evidence of a league-wide, nay, GLOBAL conspiracy against the Philadelphia 76ers led by a combination of Rich Paul, Vladimir Putin, and a slew of Russian hackers and bot coders. And, to add insult to injury, this nefarious cabal has centered its plot around trading Furkan Korkmaz. The bastards.
Just look at the account @BobbyDSixers, and you’ll see the account was formed when Ben Simmons – James Harden trade rumors really ramped up at the start of the 2020-21 season. The replies go on seemingly forever. And each of them reads the following:
“Trade Ben Simmons and Furkan Korkmaz for Andrew Wiggins and Jonathan Kuminga.”
Of course, I was dumbfounded. I was just scrolling through Twitter, seeing how Furk’s numbers were looking in the 4th quarter this year, and suddenly, we stumbled across a conspiracy the likes of which we’ve never seen before.
The closer you look, the more this makes sense. Even with Rich Paul trying to trade Ben Simmons, his hate for the Sixers organization goes deeper than this one dispute.
Rich Paul is a threat to national security.
This kind of internet propaganda is quite honestly disgusting from Rich Paul. Teaming up with a foreign actor, especially those that wish his own country harm, just to get Ben Simmons traded to the Warriors? Is that what power is worth to Rich Paul? His own compatriots?
Morality aside, this is just excessive. I mean, it’s basketball. Why are you trying to influence public opinion by way of a technological propaganda campaign?
Then again, what am I to expect from Mao ZeBron’s agent? I have no doubt Rich Paul and LeChina have a vendetta against Daryl Morey for the Hong Kong tweets he sent a few years back.
Rich Paul and LeMickey are bag chasers, end of discussion. I have no issue with that. Go get your money, King. But, at the same time, when it leads you to collude with foreign governments and set up a Twitter bot with Boris on the Dark Web to get a player traded to a contender, it’s gone a little too far.
Hell, even his girlfriend Adele is fed up with his ruthless pursuit of power.
As a former scholar of international law, this is entirely out of bounds. This form of collusion to undermine public faith in institutions is something that, if proven, is prosecutable. I’m 30% sure of that.
Also, just from a basketball perspective, I don’t like that trade at all. Furkan is a valuable piece; he’s basically the Bizzaro Matisse Thybulle. I need him here in Philly, not to be used as a trade chip to get Andrew Wiggins.
I don’t see this propaganda blitz paying off the way Rich Paul and Vladimir Putin think it will. The Sixers are honestly in a great spot right now, even without Ben Simmons. Sure, it’s the regular season, but the team beat a very hot Bulls team without Tobias Harris. Considering the holdout is already a failure, I’d stop to propaganda before this really gets embarrassing.
