This is even worse news than Kawhi. Smdh

Shaking My DickHead? Edit: im really dumb


Slobbin

If you really don't know, shake my damn head


StudyRoom-F

I really didnt, and now I feel insanely dumb. Thanks for bearing with me anyways.


v399

Don't be ridiculous. Your version is way better.


Herr_Werfer

We're all shaking our dickheads on this tragic day


shord143

I'm shaking my dickhead through the tears


MikeyFromWaltham

I definitely am after that game lol


Slobbin

I kinda thought you were joking but this is WAY better, don't be ashamed If you were joking than it wouldn't be nearly as fun


Mimi108

Lmao, I used to think this, too 😂I'm glad I wasn't the only one.


OkBarber6

WHAT IS HAPPENING TODAY!?


SoDakZak

Cat-astrophic events, Stan Van’s Gonedy, and GOATs are Bleating.


mrsuns10

I heard its raining cats and Marv Albert's


Squishy_Lemur

Oh no Marvs are biters!


au_tom_atic

Stan Van Gonedy you mean


paultissimo

Are you kitten me


AnotherStatsGuy

June 16th, 2021. A day that will live in NBA infamy. Real talk, the off-season doesn’t care the playoffs are going on. We’re having all the bombshells in the middle of the June, season or no season.


mcdiego

Our pets’ heads are falling off!!


getitonnn

lmaooo seriously this is the most fucked news to come out


LessProbableThanNot

How the fuck am I supposed to root for the Hawks when this cat will be sad if they win?


Shaolin718

Cant believe you guys killed this cat 😞


Spike_der_Spiegel

Hawks: Can't win with these cats


kindafree8

The meme that keeps on going lol 5 years now


EmmaTheRobot

I mea, they are the hawks, they would be the team to kill a cat


PerceusJacksonius

Michael Jeffrey Jordan would commit feline genocide to win a playoff game. - Skip Bayless probably


twoterms

Fuck them cats - mj


henry_why416

Time to start your own fanbase tradition.


NoNameWalrus

hawks killing cats


WubaDubImANub

It’s a win win. If the sixers win, the cat gets to see their Philly team win one last time. If the sixers loss, the cat gets to boo their Philly team one last time. EDIT: LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL


theDrunkWookie

I mean at least it won't be sad for very long


No_Scallion_3990

God damn

NBA's greatest villains of all time who will stop Trae's evildoing ways where is batman, WHERE?


Thehealeroftri

ESPN: Trae Young *hates* animals, particularly ones who are sick.


DELCO-PHILLY-BOY

ESPN would *NEVER* speak ill of Trae Young.


PRSwing

I heard batman hates pussy so he CLEARLY isn't the one to call in this situation 😬


DieselLegal

Cmon man :(


hreterh

If you guys win I'm calling the ASPCA


rukqoa

How the fuck does its owners know that Izzy isn't a sekrit Hawks fan? #FreeTheCat I say


YROK1986

Cats and birds are natural enemies, duh.


SleepyNervousBoi

Hawks are actually pretty mean to cats. I witnessed one bopping my parents cat on the head.


T0uchedByAnUncle

Just one game, you can root for the other team. For the cat.


efranklin13

Here’s a link to PAWS, Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, that Izzy raised money for previously: https://phillypaws.org/


moneybagels

Love PAWS! Great place to donate to, if you're so inclined. We got our kitty [Melon](https://i.imgur.com/KJT8w5S.jpg) from there. She's not a big fan of being raised but gonna have to do it for Izzy tonight.


popmalcolm

I've seen less typed about the players damn they love this cat


SoDakZak

I like animal stories in sports. The Minnesota Twins’ rally squirrel was so much fun. I was rooting for the hawks but I ain’t no cat hater. Go Sixers. Make the cat happy one last time! Edit: in honor of Izzy here is my cat [Ziggy](https://imgur.com/a/i0Cgdso)


OsuLost31to0

Don’t forget about the [rally possum](https://sportshub.cbsistatic.com/i/r/2018/09/21/9f872ee0-4fb5-4d00-80ef-5be96ed45a40/thumbnail/1200x675/fd5c6ab933fc250e72602e90e06e26fd/screen-shot-2018-09-20-at-11-32-30-pm.png) at the Browns game

popmalcolm

Ima pour some out for Ziggy


plz-be-my-friend

Adorable


boylejc2

I didn't know there were multiple Minnesota Rally Squirrels - I just remember the one from 2010 cause the guy it stalked on the field was someone my uncle taught in high school band.


popmalcolm

I love animals but trey young is pretty nice too lol. Hawks are an animal, maybe its ok..... but for real RIP legendary kitty, Sixers need to build a lil statue outside the stadium.


GlizzanderHolyfield

They should actually build a mini statue of the iconic cat, and then Sixers fans can pose next to it and “hold” it up in the same way. Honor Izzy the right way.


Ickulus

That really could be perfect if it was suspended at the right height that you could pose raising it. Then again, it would be a weird floating cat statue when no one was holding it. So we really need it.


GlizzanderHolyfield

Yeah like the Shaq statue the Lakers did hanging off the side of the arena. Suspend it at the right height and it’d be perfect, and it’d always be a fun story for the fans when people ask about the cat


GumpTheChump

Toronto went with a plant. https://ftw.usatoday.com/2019/06/raptors-kawhi-leonard-plant-guy-parade

Aw ziggy is so cute


MilkCarton78

I can’t take any more of this god forsaken day

nomadic_River

Lets raise Kawahi one last time if the Sixers win.


Derrymurbles1985

LMAO


Squishy_Lemur

Oh no...well you don't want the poor guy to suffer it's for the best :(


gatoguz

This aged poorly


MilkCarton78

Yeah I've thought about this cat maybe a dozen times since that disgusting loss and I feel worse every time :(


zarvinny

The 76ers will be the pallbearers at her funeral. So they can let her down one last time.


rawchess

Ben Simmons would find a way to brick the casket off the side of the grave.


2khead23

He’d throw dirt on the casket and it’d end up in his eyes somehow


SubcooledBoiling

If Hawks win tonight it means they hate small animals


stdfan

Sixers proved they weren't racist for losing to us in the MLK jerseys.


YROK1986

Literally all Hawks eat is small animals.


OldOrder

Trae 'cat murderer' Young


Amputree

A cat probably stole a rabbit kill from them once and they’re still salty.


TVTSucks

Are any Hawks players vegan? I don’t think any of them love small animals that’s for sure (love being defined as preventing the torture of, low bar I know).


orrrderinchaos

Man what a bummer news day 😿


acey901234

Sorry Izzy :(


Stopman

Holy fuck, I, uh... jesus


fotballrox54

Instead of hoisting her up, the sixers let her down 😔😔😔


zgamer200

Th Sixers haven't won it all since 1983, so at least Izzy was used to it. If anything it was more fitting for them to let her down one last time.


PhromDaPharcyde

WHAT THE FUCK IS HAPPENING TODAY


StephenBrocker

In a day of crazy news, this might be the worst :(


DefactoAtheist

Fuck sake. Here I was, minding my own business, enjoying the Sixers monstrous bottle-job and then I go and read this. RIP Izzy, imma go hug my cat.


leagueisbetter

Rumor has it the cat will no longer be put down tomorrow as it died watching that sixers performance


OlafdePolaf

my cat has said it will down a pawful of pills if the hawks lose so dont pick a side to quickly


packim0p

my cat is going to shit in the hallway regardless as a power move.


mrsuns10

My cat flipped me off


babyyodavan

If the 6ers lose game 5 I'm calling PETA

Tragedy game. Put the house on the Sixers tn


rya22222

Sixers better win for da kitty! :(


lakersman77

Hawks winning would pretty much confirm Trae Young hates all animals.


Purple9ZH

These last 24 hours have been one of the worst for basketball in recent memory and the hits just keep on coming.


Dareal6

Ben Simmons all game and Embiid at the line in the clutch: FUCK THIS CAT


sexygodzilla

Worse than Steph missing threes with donations to cancer patients on the line.


Asking4Afren

It's confirmed sixers didn't want to let the cat rest in peace.


Split_Open_and_Melt

Well this is fucked


zgamer200

On one hand, Fuck the Sixers, but I won't lie that them losing the final game Izzy gets to attend is pretty sad.


RGPISGOOD

Cat died today after watching this 76ers performance, sad.


oscarwildeaf

Bro this is the game the sixers choke away??? Why couldn't they do it for the cat?!!!


Bk7

R.I.P.


noparlortrickz

Cat owner going to have to keep that cat on life support


Martel1234

It’s October. The cat is somehow still alive as the Sixers come for the season opener. If they lose this one Ben Simmons will be on a cross


killerjags

This is a mega oof


mrt1022

I can’t believe they let the cat down.


cunthousevanhouten

My thoughts go to Dennis, man can't catch a break.


Lackbear

I am now going to go over to my parents house with a pillow to suffocate their 25 year old cockatiel. Birds. Hawks. Whatever. Pets are caught in the crossfire. And I got a lethal pillow.


msticha

Win or lose, you hoist her. You hoist her because she’s a champion no matter what!


RealMichaelKay

If the Hawks win it proves that their organization hates cancer patients.

If you had talents you could get attention instead of having a edgy name


Jaerba

> If she could talk, I think that’s what she would say: ‘Let’s get one more,’” he said. This is called attention whoring. The owners want attention. RIP cute cat.


efranklin13

It isn’t that deep bro lol


Thehealeroftri

Dudes acting like he's the only one who knows that the cat doesn't really care lol
