Sixers Mocked in Taiwanese Animation
Next Media Animation, a jokey Taiwanese animated news service that first came to prominence for its Tiger Woods reenactment in 2009, has weighed in on the Kevin Love-Andrew Wiggins deal. The trade, which will send the star Kevin Love to Cleveland to play with LeBron James, is expected to be completed later this month. Last year’s first overall pick, Anthony Bennett, and a future first-round pick will also be headed to Minnesota.
A second deal, reported by the Daily News, has the Sixers trading Thaddeus Young to the Timberwolves for Bennett. Bennett, who looked out of shape last season, had one of the worst rookie seasons of any No. 1 pick ever.
As such, he and the Sixers were mocked in this Taiwanese animation video.
Presumably, this is how Bennett will land in Philly, head-first into the basket.
