Atlanta crowd cheered when they thought Joel was injured.

Atlanta crowd cheered when they thought Joel was injured.

bdirker

And no mention of it from the broadcast team. Awful all around


all4whatnot

You don’t remember when Atlanta fans threw grease balls at the tooth fairy in 1947? I’m surprised it doesn’t come up every damn time I see a national broadcast from Atlanta. /s


GrandmaJosey

They threw Italians?


St_Bernardus

Only the meatballs


MrSpringBreak

Why you make the fun of Luigi? He brought you kids pizza for your school dance


NickyNomads

I’m Italian but that was so long ago who cares!!? They could have thrown my gpappy and I would be honored.


DELCO-PHILLY-BOY

Surprised the broadcast team didn’t say “oh, Philly players should be used to this” like they did when Braves fans were throwing shit on the field against us a couple months ago.


jihyoisgod

The day I realized Joe Buck > Matty V


DELCO-PHILLY-BOY

ESPN ruined that man. He used to be my favorite announcer in sports. It’s really sad to see.


WorldWar2NeverHappnd

Same, I used to like him going back to when I started playing mlb the show. ESPN ruins everything


daregulater

Just giving a shout to the wonderful world of delco


decaturbadass

Murdur Durdur


notscott88

One of the worst broadcasts I’ve heard in my life


DaisyHotCakes

I miss Alaa and Zu, man. They are pretty damn fair and they would have absolutely called out the fans on the broadcast if our fans had done something like that. You don’t want anyone to get hurt - it’s a goddamn competition. You want your best up against their best to secure a win, otherwise…did you really beat them? I was so mad to hear them cheer. That’s just messed up.


Ivanalan24

I've been listening to Tom McGinnis since Zumoff signed off. I don't regret that decision.


xFruity

Where can I listen to Tom


Ivanalan24

I mute the TV and turn on my radio app. Haha.


Thuro_dHoreb-4050

Great Idea... National broadcast for the visual quality. Audio for the truth!


ReleaseTheCracken69

Marc and Alaa are probably my favorite caster duo across anything, it sucks so much that they can't do any games after the first round


Shwagmoneyflex

And they actually tell you what the fuck is going on. Who was that foul against? How many fouls do they have? These are things I would like to know, they were busy circle jerking about everything but the game. Thankfully, I was able to mute it, and sync the radio broadcast. I forget his name, but he’s great. We are spoiled by great broadcasters in Philly. Fuck Adam Silver though!!! Why is the first round the arbitrary cutoff for local broadcasts? And fuck Comcast for letting him DadDick them into giving up their broadcasting rights.


DaisyHotCakes

The guy on 97.5? I can’t remember his name but he’s great! I’m gonna try to sync the next game. I would legit give Zumoff and Alaa like $20 each to hook them up to a podcast to do their thing but I’m guessing that’s verboten in their contracts lol If they did a free thing I could donate to I absolutely fucking would.


jselmz

Absolutely, at one point Hubie audibly sighed when Kork drilled a 3.


shnorgletons

This was the first time I really noticed it: https://www.nba.com/stats/events/?GameEventID=161&GameID=0042000203&Season=2020-21&flag=1&title=MISS%20Milton%203PT%20Jump%20Shot&sct=plot I thought home broadcasts ended after Round 1 😤


thismodernleper

Idk Hubie does that all the time on both sides. Its just reaction to good/bad plays. Guys are taking it way too serious.


Fantasybaseball2017

That’s absolutely atrocious


matt_benyon

He sighed at how bad Atlanta's rotations were, I don't think it was a bias he just appreciates good basketball


the_inciting_inciden

The corpse of Hubie


GimmeaHellYea

Dude died in 1993, and he’s just a computer version of his former self


notscott88

Matisse too


cimbom61

Terribly biased people. They should be ashamed of themselves.


Hay-blinken

I prefer the old man over most of them on ESPN though


Esoteric-Surgery

Did you expect Hubie “DAE Trae Young God” Brown to acknowledge that?


pgm123

I wonder if there's a Turner/Atlanta thing happening. I like Young, but this is ridiculous.


Ghostlucho29

It ain’t that deep


pgm123

You're probably right


anandonaqui

What. ESPN broadcast this game….. These deep state conspiracy theories in this sub are pretty embarrassing sometimes.


pgm123

Shit. This is what I get for using an... not legal stream


GodRapers

Actually they mentioned multiple times how good the fans were. Typical


DontCallMeTodd

Hubie is damn old now, he gets a pass.


SkronkHound

This makes me so glad I watched the game somewhere that played great music and just had the game on CC. (POPE if anyone wants to know. They played Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo, Billy Eilish, New York Dolls, PJ Harvey, Archers of Loaf... An excellent mix.)


TrustTheFriendship

That sounds absolutely terrible. Even if the commentary is bad, in a *playoff game* I’d rather listen to what’s happening on the court and with the crowd 100 times out of 100.


SkronkHound

I can watch what is happening on the court is the thing.


TrustTheFriendship

You just don’t get it man. No one cares what songs you were listening to. No one wants captions all over the screen. No one wants to not hear the whistles, not hear the sound of the floor screeching when players cut, not hear the moments when a player’s trash talk or arguing is audible. Except for really casual or fair weather fans. Not in the playoffs, that’s for damn sure.


SkronkHound

Sorry but I just realized I should've said this earlier: fuck you weirdo gatekeeping piece of shit. Let people watch how they want to and suck your own dick on your own time. You aren't a better fan because you like to listen to shitty commentary. Fuck you. There isn't a good reason to be an asshole even if I were a fair weather fan so fuck you and on behalf of fair weather fans, which I'm not but I welcome, fuck you again. In conclusion fuck you


170macky

I say your wrong and you are wrong and that’s 2:1 and also I agree with him which means 2:1 again which means you are completely wrong and you are


SkronkHound

I'm not sure what you're saying but I still feel that I trust you more than the previous weirdo.


170macky

Scoop da blip de bop, bop bop, yeme toscato


SkronkHound

I love your sense of rhythm.


ButterOnMyButter

Good job defending yourself man. Don’t take shit from anyone for watching something else than the godawful biased commentary.


SkronkHound

I'm a pretty serious fan. We don't even get to hear the trash talk. And without Mark and Alaa I don't care too much to hear the weak ass commentators. I agree nobody cares what songs were playing where I was listening. I guess I just said that because I had a good evening and am kinda drunk.


msdeezee

Bizarre hill to die on


D_Stash

What a weird thing to comment lol


Wack_Miller

I can’t wait to back door sweep these clowns just for that alone.


TheM4dScientist

Toronto fans did the same thing when Durant went down with that Achilles injury. People are pieces of shit.


Armin__Tamzarian

You'd think they'd realize by now that Joel could lose a leg and still dominate this pussy ass team


Doritos_Locos_Gatos

That’s a sign of sad and desperate fans. Atlanta is pathetic.


ManfredsJuicedBalls

That’s ok. When the Hawks are dogshit again, they can play in front of a couple thousand fans, and it won’t be like that because of a pandemic.


chod3hammer

Again...? Remind me who they have other than Trae Young that makes them not dog shit?


Halfonion

Capella and bogi are decent role player but hawks never had a chance. Our best player is much better then there best player. Our second best player is much better then there second best player. Our third best player is much better then their third best player. And it keeps going down the line.


PhillyPhan95

We have three of the four best players in this series. Embiid Young Simmons Tobias Harris

pgm123

At least they're not doing a racist chant like their baseball fans....


Head-Kiwi-9601

Don’t you know anything about the south? It’s okay because native Americans are not white.


pgm123

I want to gloat, but I'm not going to pretend the north has a perfect track record.


Nochtilus

True, Boston and South Philly exists


pgm123

I don't want to tell you what my Port Richmond relatives said after my mom got a DNA test....


amanofewords

Did she find out she’s 100 percent that bitch?


Ghostlucho29

If I’ve learned anything in the past 6 years, it’s that the South is hardly the monopoly of racism it’s made out to be.


DontCallMeTodd

I've lived in the South. Just stop. Yea, there's shitty people there, just like there's shitty people everywhere.


Common_Answer2424

What? Bruh thats not cool, thats so not cool. Wheres the damn cancel culture when you need them for once.


Pink_Monkey

Their sub is trash right now There are some good people there though, I will admit - but a lot are talking serious shit. Just gross


throawaythoughts202

they make me sick. corny ass city. FUCKEM UP 6ers!!!!!!


HarryPotterofRap

Alright bro, I can't read stuff like this. Clown our fanbase, sure. But not our city. I highly advise you to take a trip down to Atlanta, and see all the good we have to offer. People are trash, and they don't represent an entire fan base. After our first game win, we had sixers fans saying racial slurs in our live chat, but we don't believe everyone in Philly is racist. Calm down man.


[deleted]

[удалено]


mb00439

Man... I live just outside of Atlanta and have for 25 years. It ain't that great.


HarryPotterofRap

Perspective. ATL is a city vibrant with culture, opportunity, and something to do every weekend. There’s a reason people call it the black Hollywood.


mb00439

It is perspective. But there is nothing that makes your perspective any more or less valid than mine. All the things you said are not wrong. But those same things can be said about many, many other major metropolitan areas across the country.


HarryPotterofRap

Ok


GodRapers

You'd think they'd learn after the Falcons and Bulldogs both losing championship games by blowing leads. They started celebrating after 1 win


thatchcumberstone

I used to be a Falcons fan before I stopped watching football (loved their uniforms) but Atlanta sports fans are a special type of shitty. I've seen a countless number of Katrina jokes directed at Saints fans while also seeing the Falcons stadium half empty every single game. Atlanta fans have suffered mightily but they're not especially sympathetic. Nobody's ever like "the city of Atlanta needs this win!"


CartographerBig2031

HALF THEIR STADIUM’S SEATS ARE EMPTY BUT TRAE YOUNG OMG. Sixers in 5😤


TeddySpice

They’ve done it twice now. Scumbags.

Lord_Ferd

Atlanta with that prolapsed anus energy. No amount of Magic can save that city


notbeast02

and then Embiid destroys the rim with a monster dunk GO HOME HAWKS FANS


jlval87

They cheered twice! Fuck them


benpuljak

only good thing to come out of atl are outkast


anandonaqui

I mean MLK was pretty good


SweetTooth37

There's also Killer Mike. So basically RTJ.


vaped_kizz

i swear they showed killer mike wearing a sixers hat in the first quarter


SweetTooth37

Was that the dude in a black shirt?


vaped_kizz

he had on a white polo t-shirt. almost positive killler mike is a hawks fan though so it wouldn’t make much sense


SweetTooth37

Yeah I checked his Twitter. He's a Hawks fan. He even owns a barbershop in ATL.


InQuintsWeTrust

🤜🏻👈🏻


Whitealroker1

Larry Jones was okay.


benpuljak

wings are alright too ig


No_Fairweathers

Donald Glover?


RichHomi3Saquon

Or Future. Migos. Young Thug. lil Baby, Gucci Mane, TI lmao. Or Dwight Howard.


GRITTY4PRESIDENT

We really gonna talk about ATL music without mentioning da God JEEZY? The disrespect man


SuperiorAmerican

Jeezy is so corny tho.


No_Fairweathers

Half the people you mentioned aren't talented, just successful. I get you're probably in the generation that likes those artists, but I just don't. Out of that list I respect only: Lil Baby, Gucci (barely), T.I, and Dwight. Future, Migos, Young Thug are all very untalented artists who have gotten famous because of their producers.


RichHomi3Saquon

I highly disagree but if you don’t like those guys you don’t like them. I will say Future is one of the most diverse and influential rappers of the last decade, and an excellent producer who learned music production from the Dungeon Family. And Young Thug is a brilliant, trend-setting producer, and he’s also the only reason Lil Baby started rapping. If you listen to the most popular music from each year you’ll notice Thugger’s sound becomes popular among other rappers after he introduces it. So it’s cool if you don’t fw them but they are uber talented artists who were crucial in their own success.


Mental_Attitude_2952

The actor or musician... I like his shows and acting but his music is pretty overrated. But he is a dope TV producer and actor.


No_Fairweathers

Childish Gambino's album "Camp" is still one of my favorite rap albums ever. His newer shit is hit or miss for me, but even the stuff I don't personally like, I can admit is good quality. I don't agree he's overrated, I think the talent is there... You just might not enjoy it yourself. Also beyond acting, he's an incredible writer for shows (Like 30 Rock) and stand up comedian. Dude is beyond talented in pretty much every facet of show business.


DEZdispenser98

Aight we gotta dig up Sherman from the grave


KeepSwinging

As somebody who lives in Atlanta I approve this message fully


cimbom61

Fuck that network. I hate hearing their voices.


fushiao

I just turn on music and mute the broadcast, was much more enjoyable


InQuintsWeTrust

I’ve been muting every national broadcast my teams have been in since the Birds won the Super Bowl


1Surlygirl

Yep, we just mute the TV and turn up Merrill.


nironeah

They know their ass team only have a chance if Embiid is unable to play.


Common_Answer2424

Even then we dont become underdogs. Its kinda even when embiid doesnt play


[deleted]

Common_Answer2424

They beat randle and now they think they can beat the beasts of the east. Oh and julius randle disappeared in the playoffs


GrunkleVans

you dont want to go into sub. trust me.


joel_embeans

Garbage city with garbage fans


ethan_at

it’s almost as if every city has some asshole fans.


_wallabeechamp

twice. when he came up after the rebound he stepped on someone’s foot and when he went down over capela. this would be the headline on ESPN and every other sports outlet tomorrow morning had the shoe been on the other foot.


Ryanthecat

They did it twice too low key… classless fans


_creatine_shits_

Whenever this happens to any Philly team, the counter-argument is always "Well, at least we didn't do ***insert any Philly fan incident***". Every fanbase, in any form of entertainmemt, has bad apples. Like seriously, how many fans have been LITERALLY STABBED out at LA/Oakland sporting events? But yet, we get singled out because of some lame-ass narrative that the lazy, national media LOVES to latch on to. Whatever. Sixers in 5.


NYGTTP

Fuck em Sixers in 5.


dcasper498

Fucking clowns. The main stream media made them believe they had a chance 😂🥱


Limburgercheeze100

disrespect and respect. they must feel like the guys so good their teams only chance to win is if he's out the picture


ZarosGuardian

It's so goddamn classless to cheer when a player gets injured, or might be injured, bar fucking none. Don't give a shit where it is. Boston, Memphis, Atlanta, Oakland, Philadelphia. GTFO of here with that shit.


TheArsenal7

Atlanta sports is just garbage. I’d be salty too if I had to root for the Hawks Falcons and Braves


KarmaFuhrer

They are so fucking mad about embiid, it's hilarious. But don't post there yall. Stalk it, whatever, but there is no point in actually commenting. No team likes it when people invade their sub. But yeh they are sad asf cant wait to beat them. Really ironic how hard they are hating on embiid considering how dominant he is vs them. Like how do they think this is gonna turn out for them?


Pio33

Half of the "fans" decided to be fans this year


Darth_Deckard

According to r/NBA it didn’t happen.


dlxnj

You can barely hear the cheering in the audio in the post they allowed on there… but I swear I heard it clear as day on the live broadcast


Liquid__J

Yup. It’s really pathetic. Listening to the fans and announcers, I would’ve thought Atlanta won. I miss Zu and Alaa. Cant wait to rip through these boys.


Its_KO_MANIA

Let’s be honest, the obvious one we’re going to compare it to, was way more egregious than tonight. Tonight was a quick smattering of cheers that got drowned out quickly. Not raucous cheers from the whole arena. Cheers repeated again after the guy was laid out on the field for several minutes and they brought out the stretcher.


jokullmusic

yeah I mean you can barely hear it on the broadcast. I didn't notice it live and it's still hard to notice in the clip


y_r_u_so_paranoid

Let’s be real though, Michael Irvin was (and is) a dogshit human being who stabbed a teammate in the neck with a pair of scissors because he couldn’t wait 5 mins for a haircut. Maybe controversial, but as far as I’m concerned when you proudly demonstrate to the entire world that you’re that level of complete and total scumbag, with absolutely no regard for anyone but yourself, you lose most of the common courtesies that are afforded to normal, non-murderous, human beings, such as fans not cheering when you get hurt. If Embiid was stabbing teammates in the neck in the locker room I think it would be a bit more difficult to blame Hawks fans.


BroJady

And they all whined that Embiid didn’t get ejected last game cause they’d rather win a Mickey Mouse game than actually be the better team. Major loser energy - very sad.


Philly139

Meh who cares. We are beating their ass. Them cheering isn't gonna hurt embiid any worse or less. People make too big a deal out of this kinda shit.


Ryanthecat

It matters to an extent… look at the run we went on after that. Maybe it was just coincidence but seemed like the team really rallied after that and absolutely dominated down the stretch.


GodBasedHomie

Atlanta is a trash sports city overall


Jacklewis98

How come they haven't brigaded the sub? I'd have much more respect if they did it during a loss


edwardsscreenname

To be fair, remember when Michael Irvin died on the football field and our fans cheered? All opposing fans are annoying.


MoreOfAGrower

No denying Eagles fans are mostly straight up trash. Sixers fan base is much different though fortunately


domesystem

Get my popcorn!


modogg42

loved every shot of their crowd and was almost all of their fans on their phones not even watching the game. can't fathom paying for tix to go and play on my phone


jpv1031

Not gonna lie, with 6:30 left and us up 20 I was not happy about Doc putting Embiid back in the game. Howard was playing well and at the time there was no reason for him to go back in. That one moment when Embiid almost stole the ball and would have had a fast break scared the shit out of me too.


DemBai7

I couldn’t understand this either. Game was in the bag... he had already had a scare earlier in the game. Plus I’m really digging Howard orange dread hawk


Ungentrified

Joel "Sherman" Embiid. EDIT: The US government should have made General William T. Sherman a military dictator over the entire former Confederacy. (Removes jacket.)


BigEvil621

Classless.


Daspaintrain

People on their sub legit believe and he’s faking his injury lmao


1Surlygirl

As a Philly fan living away from home, I get static from other teams' fans ALL the time, but I don't give any shit, and I don't take any shit - I'm not in the shit business. I don't take ANY of it off anyone; I'm there as an ambassador of Philadelphia sports, not to be an A\*\*hole. Sports is about SPORTSMANSHIP. You NEVER cheer when someone gets hurt. That is just unutterably WRONG, even little kids know that. So damn sick of people bagging on our city. If not for Philadelphia, America would not even exist... plus we'd still have Orange Number Two. Fuck that guy, and fuck people who cheer when someone gets hurt. Sixers in 5. # LFG!!!!!


Alarmed_Unit3080

That shit made me sick. Fuck Atlanta fans...all of em.


PigWithAWoodenLeg

I'm not pressed. As a Sixers fan I know nobody loves us, I know they hate to see us win. Atlanta can show their ass as much as they want because at the end of the day they're not advancing and we are.


DontCallMeTodd

Let's not forget that some ppl in the stands prob voted for that morally corrupt qanon congressperson. Shouldn't be a surprise that Atlanta has horrible people.


Booktor

I’m a die-hard hawks fan, and I am disgusted by that. I would love to win, and I have fun reading each fanbase complain about the other guys best player getting too many calls. But cheering for injuries is beyond classless. Just coming in to say that. Also I hope you guys lose.


Accurate_Shooter

Did anyone else feel like the ESPN folks were straight up cheering for Atlanta tonight?


Shazamm11

They were lol


ead5104

There’s a topic about this on r/NBA and the mods labeled it as “Misleading - No Distinguishing Cheering”. What a joke.


LittleStJamesBond

Does someone have the clip? Sick of hearing how we’re the garbage fans when the honorable people of Atlanta pull shit like this


Common_Answer2424

Ikr. Everyone keeps saying were toxic and classless.


VoreLord

raptors moment


McKeever16

Does it bother anyone else that they keep giving us the announcer who’s like 107 years old?


parcels704

Hubie😂😂😂


170macky

Give us mike breen nigga


NickyNomads

Even without embiid, Atlanta wouldn’t take that series. They lack talent in a major way. 0% chance at a championship. Truth hurts


[deleted]

You’d be a classless Neanderthal to if you had to grow up in that dump.


EmbiidWeTrust

Well they suck and have to live in the shit hole known as “Atlanta”


PhilaTesla

did not even look to be sold out. What a sad sight to see empty seats - especially down low near the court - on a nationally televised PLAYOFF game.


firemonkey1313

I wasnt watching but i bet this is bullshit. The city is Atlanta isn't a bunch of people the root for injuries and the city of Philly isn't full of angels It's all bullshit and we shouldn't buy into it


76panthers

There is a clip on r/nba and it's literally just a slight murmur.


Xo0om

Yeah. IMO pretty typical of r/sixers fans blowing up literally nothing into a major slight against Sixers and Philadelphia.


dlxnj

Did you watch the live broadcast? Audio was totally different.


76panthers

Do you have a clip? I live in Europe, fell asleep at halftime.

[deleted]

we’re being way too dramatic about this. so some atlanta fans cheered oh boy. most people are decent and aren’t cheering for that and honestly it wasn’t that obvious in the first place. stop trying to high road other fans. there’s scumbags everywhere and i could easily see our crowd getting a little louder and excited in the heat of the game if another star goes down. doesn’t mean they’re all pieces of shit. this poor me attitude is so fuckin lame from us. and yea i know people wanna point this out cause they feel like it’d be a bigger story if it happened to us and it would be... so be it. remember it’s “no one likes us, we don’t care” not “no one likes us, this is unfair”


Niku-Man

A big portion of fans are trash anywhere you go. There would've been a sizable portion of Philly fans smiling and laughing at Trae if he twisted an ankle. Does anyone know what that was though? Did Joel just hit his funny bone? He was back at it a couple plays later like nothing happened


Accurate_Shooter

Loser Mentality


StaleSerial

We did the same to Joakim Noah when he got injured


orangeist

If you kept being let down year after year by the falcons and braves, blew a major Super Bowl lead, or had your hockey team pack up and straight leave, you’d prob be a sorry fan base too.
