Michael Rubin details huge benefits of selling 76ers stake on Pat McAfee Show
Now-former 76ers owner Michael Rubin no longer holds a stake in the team, but that does not mean he still won’t be involved with the franchise. He will be running Fanatics full time, but as he made an appearance as bell-ringer to start the season, it’s clear we likely have not seen the last of him.
Rubin joined the Pat McAfee Show and all but confirmed a lot of Sixers fans’ suspicions about the reason for the move:
Ohhhh, Michael, you dirty dog you.
It’s clear my man has found the best way to circumvent the NBA Deep State, and that’s by ditching the NBA altogether on paper while still funneling money to top free agents. The only way to defeat the enemy is to essentially become then, and that’s exactly what’s happening here.
The idea with a billionaire with “no rules [he needs] to live by” is initially terrifying, but becomes incredible when that means he can hep your favorite basketball team however the hell he wants. James Harden may have taken a pay cut on his own, but Rubin selling his stake to take care of Harden with endorsements and ownership of Mitchell and Ness absolutely sealed the deal.
I’ll be honest, I’ve accused 76ers ownership of a variety of infractions ranging from white-collar crime to a personal slight, and have done so on pretty much any platform made available to me. That said, I want to retract all of it right now.
Break all the rules you want; kill an innocent person for all I care. As long as the money keeps flowing to our stars through backchannels, I don’t care what happens.
I’ll turn a blind-eye for a winning basketball team. Especially if I can get an invite to Rubin’s “White Party.”
