The Philadelphia 76ers finally returned to the basketball court last night, beating the Washington Wizards…
The Kelly Oubre Jr. hit-and-run saga has managed to get even more perplexing. TMZ recently obtained a video clip showing him minutes after the accident, which not only didn’t show proof he was hit by a car but also added a number of question marks about the details of the situation.
Kelly Oubre Jr. was clearly wincing in pain as he went into his home with a bicycle in tow:
Here's video Kelly Oubre Jr returning home minutes after he was hit by a car in Philly on Saturday. There's talk about lack of surveillance vid. Sources says KO, who's new to city, wasn't interviewed by cops until hours after accident at hospital & he was unsure of exact location pic.twitter.com/fB1DYatkUh— michael j. babcock (@mikejbabcock) November 16, 2023
Look, in all honesty, I don’t care about this story. At least, I wouldn’t if it didn’t continue getting more ridiculous with each passing day.
You might be thinking, “What’s so crazy about this? Just move on.” Well, I’m glad you asked, and no, I won’t.
First of all, this is clearly from Kelly Oubre Jr.’s own security camera, which means he probably leaked it to TMZ to prove the hit-and-run happened. We all believed him and pretty much still do, so that decision is a little confusing, to say the least, if that’s how it went down.
Second, where the hell did that bike come from??? Reports said the entire time that he was walking, but he came home banged up with a bicycle. That just doesn’t add up, especially when you combine it with the fact that we don’t know where the incident really even happened.
What’s driving me nuts is that Kelly Oubre Jr. leaked a video he absolutely did not have to and managed to poke holes in his own story in the process. It feels like he’s digging himself out of a hole he was never in, so he ended up in a hole anyway.
The most important piece of the puzzle is the bike. It quite literally holds the answer to a question I wish Oubre hadn’t forced us to ask.
At first, the craziest discussed possibility was his wife whooping his ass, likely for supposed infidelity with a lady of the night. The video at least disproved that, which is a positive.
Unfortunately, now that the bike is in the picture, the horizons have broadened immensely. I can’t help but question everything now.
