Mike Scott plays Nerf war with kids in Philly
Some kids spend their Sunday mornings watching cartoons, while others reach for their favorite game or device. One group of children in Philadelphia, however, got to spend last Sunday morning playing Nerf wars with Sixers forward Mike Scott.
Scott rolled up to a local park in Philly, where the playful battle was already underway. Shortly after his arrival, the Virginia native began taking fire from all directions. Retreat was futile, as the forces against him were simply too many:

Scott was traded to the Sixers at last season’s deadline. The 31-year-old re-signed with the team in June, signing a two-year, $9.8 million deal. Philly seems to like his game, and at 6-8, he can guard several positions. However, Scott will likely be playing behind Al Horford, who joined the team in July.
In 27 appearances with Philly last season (three starts), Scott racked up averages of 7.8 points on 40.0 percent shooting from the field (41.2 percent from beyond the arc), 3.8 rebounds and just under one assist (0.8) in 24.0 minutes per outing.
The Sixers finished the 2018-19 regular season campaign with an impressive 51-31 overall record, which earned the team a No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Unfortunately, though, Philadelphia was defeated by the Toronto Raptors in the second round, 4-3.
