Tyrese Maxey explains why he wears No. 0
Philadelphia 76ers point guard Tyrese Maxey has been on fire this season. Tonight, the Sixers are on the road against the Utah Jazz. If they want any shot of winning this game, Maxey will have to continue the current hot streak he’s on to help the Sixers snap a four game losing streak and secure a much needed win. Maxey sat down with the NBA for a quick video clip posted on Twitter earlier this evening to talk about why he wears the number 0 on the Sixers.
The clip is pretty short but man, do I love Tyrese Maxey. He’s literally everything that Ben Simmons is not and more. Maxey wears the number 0 because first and foremost, the No. 3 jersey in Philadelphia belongs to Allen Iverson and only Allen Iverson. Credit to the kid for acknowledging that.
The Anti-Ben Simmons continues to say that 0 has grown on him. There are zero excuses for anything. Positive energy from Tyrese Maxey every single day. There’s literally no time for excuses. Hopefully he can relay that message to Ben Simmons, but I doubt he’d listen anyways.
