It is Christmas Time

On Friday, I said the Sixers should call undrafted Temple star Dionte Christmas to give him a shot at making his hometown team. Well, that's exactly what the Sixers did, extending Dionte an invitation to join the Sixers' summer league team, which Christmas accepted.

I really, really would love to see Christmas make the squad. There are only a few spots open, but hopefully Christmas can light it up in the summer league and earn a spot as a bench scoring option. Plus, how cool would it be to have Holiday and Christmas coming off the bench?

BallHype: hype it up!


  1. I'd rather have Josh Heytvelt, but glad we got Dionte. Kid gets busted for freaking 'rooms and pot 2 years ago and now is blackballed...what is this Russia? Hell, I just watched Rocky IV and even those Reds seem willing to offer up second chances now.

    Bullshit on Heytvelt not getting drafted and Austin Daye going bullshit.

  2. And Taylor Griffin got drafted? Really? Reggie Evans has more offensive game than him.
