Not long after the news broke, Harper is being invited to a fun new club. ‘Bobi and Tobi’ are ready too add their ‘Bryci’ to the fold.
Harper is a good friend for the two Sixers players to have. After all, he just signed a massive contract this is going to pay him 330 million dollars over the next 13 years of his life. The kicker is that there is no opt-out in the deal either, that means ‘Bryci’ will be there for a long, long time.
It is nice to see the cross-sport brotherhood beginning. The pursuit of Harper was an arms race that seemed as though it would never end. Now that it has, the other Philadelphia teams need to embrace the cities newest superstar.
Make no mistake, Harper is immediately one of the biggest sports stars in the city, even with the Sixers playing well. Eyes have been on him since he was in high school. He was a no doubt first overall draft pick, and quickly jumped into the majors.
Bobi, Tobi, and Bryci is an amazing combination of personality to have in one city. Even though the latter will outlast the first two names, the newest Philly faces can stick together.
If nothing else, cross-promotion between major sports does only good things.
