I've been following this since it broke. As someone who liked NBA Memes page months ago, the posts did start getting lamer when it moved to the new page, but I never thought there was anything malicious.

The original guy got the NBA Memes page back about an hour ago btw.

I was stuck in meetings and then the gym and just now finally got to read it. I can say that Twitter was possibly the funniest it has ever been today ripping on this situation.

Have you seen a legit source that said Phillips was fired? There's so much bs floating around about it.

I saw a quote from ESPN PR somewhere saying that they have parted ways.

Huh, I'd want to meet in person to get scammed when you are talking about even the modest sums described in the article. What a cunt.

How about $5,000? I see you invested a similar sum in your chest! Money well spent! How about 10 large?
