This is exactly what happened last year. He went nuts in the home opener: 16 points, 14 rebounds, 2 blocks, and fans started the “Spen-cer Haw-es” chants.
This year. 16 points, 12 rebounds, 5 blocks, and again, the “Spen-cer Haw-es” chants.
Hopefully, hopefully, fingers crossed, the rest of this season plays out better than last season for Big Spence. But the chants are just a tribute to how much we want to root for this guy. Everyone wants to root for the tall, lanky, awkward, mullet-wearing, white guy. Come on, Spence. Just be good, and we’ll love you.
