Like a lot of the worst trends in this country, this one started in Brooklyn. After the Nets shut down Ben Simmons in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, they got a little cocky. Pretty soon, the area surrounding Barclays Center was littered with wanted posters looking for Simmons’ missing jumpshot.
This is so perfect. You have to appreciate the amount of time and effort that went into making this poster. At least 6 jabs at Simmons for his inability to shoot. Unfortunately for the Nets, this only inspired Simmons to go off for triple-double.
Now, like the Dropkick Murphys, the wanted poster trend is shipping up to Boston. Bruins fans have begun posting wanted signs for Nazem Kadri for his cross check on the Bruins’ Jake Debrusk.
Looks like the pettiness of the NBA is rubbing off on the NHL and I am HERE FOR IT. However, The people of Boston had to have seen the effects that the Brooklyn wanted posters had on them. Can’t say they haven’t been warned.
In all seriousness, as a Boston fan, I am not worried about any series with Toronto for one major reason…
