Nic Claxton refuses to take his L, continues to embarrass himself publicly on Instagram
Nets “big” man Nic Claxton just can’t seem to get it right. It started with him and his teammates being so afraid of Joel Embiid that they had to hack him relentlessly, peaked with his ejection after attempting a stepover and mean-mugging the MVP, and ended with the Nets getting swept back to the lottery.
Sadly, Nic Claxton has yet to learn his lesson and posted on Instagram only two days after the sweep:
What a fucking loser.
Sure, you may say I’m being a hypocrite because I loved Embiid’s social media antics when he was a young player. You’d be wrong, but people are stupid, so there’s a chance you could say it.
The thing is, there’s a key difference between the two: one of them is the MVP of the league. The other one is, well, Nic fucking Claxton.
Don’t get me wrong, the kid had a good series and it will serve as valuable experience moving forward. But acting like he did anything impactful in a series where garbage time started at tip-off is something he should probably holster.
An IG post after getting swept is some delusional stuff, seriously. Try and contribute to a winning basketball team as anything more than a ninth option and then give us a call.
