Petition for Big Fendi to ring the bell against the Brooklyn Nets on March 10th has reached 6,000 signatures
The people of Philadelphia have spoken. Earlier this week, a petition was created for Big Fendi, the man behind Joel Embiid’s famous trade deadline tweet, to ring the bell against the Brooklyn Nets on March 10th. Since the petition’s creation, over 6,000 fans have signed it, advocating for Fendi to appear at the Wells Fargo Center.
To correct my last article about the petition, twitter user and friend of the website, DrDutchTweets got things rolling and we are full steam ahead on pushing this thing as far as we can take it.
Although it’s unlikely that the Sixers would go full troll-mode with Fendi as the bell ringer, it’s still incredible to see how many fans are pushing for this, and hopefully, he’ll get his shot.
Unfortunately, it’s not looking like Simmons will be stepping foot in Philadelphia for quite some time. ESPN reported he is still out for a few weeks and might not even play for another month.
If you’re unaware, Big Fendi is the man who is known for attending the funeral of his biggest enemy, just to make sure that he was dead. But according to Embiid, he just thought he was a well-dressed man with some style.
Regardless, next Thursday’s game is sure to be hostile. There will obviously be some bad blood between the returning Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving with James Harden. Fendi is on-board with the idea, but Philly has always kept their bell-ringers close to the vest until a few minutes before the game.
