But They Started it! Sixers and Bucks Have Twitter Spat
It's that time of year when only two teams have reason to trash talk: the Warriors and the Cavaliers.
It looks like the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers didn't get the memo.
Those two teams got into bit of a Twitter spat last night on their social media accounts exchanging jabs that featured Ray Allen, Allen Iverson, Brett Brown and even a Michael Carter-Williams reference.
It all started innocently enough with the Bucks social media account celebrating an anniversary of sorts when Ray Allen led the team in a Game 6 victory (over the 76ers) in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Remember, it was the Sixers who won that series in seven games and went on to face the Lakers in the NBA Finals that year.
Realizing this, the Sixers responded with a fabulous GIF asking the tweeter to "go on..."
The Sixers then brought things back to 2001 and posted a video of Allen Iverson celebrating in that series:
The Bucks really have no comeback for anything that happened in 2001 so they brought it back current and landed a left jab posting a Michael Carter-Williams video which highlighted his performance against the Sixers:
In the end, the Sixers started the spat by attacking the Bucks for trying to celebrate a Game 6 Ray Allen performance.
The Bucks also lose points for trying to bring up a MCW performance against the Sixers which was irrelevant to the argument.
Sixers win in a close one.
