Joey Crawford gets tough with towel boys in Philly

Classic Joey Crawford. Only Joey could turn an innocent beverage spill into one minute solo act. Did the 76ers towel boy give his best effort? No. But Crawford’s motive should be to get the ball in play, not stare him down and teach a life lesson. (h/t Barstool) [...]
