If you’ve been following the Jones this year, you know we’re big fans of the 76ers’ biggest fan, a man Skeets christened “Old Man Knees.” He’s that guy sitting courtside at Sixers games with the white hair, white goatee and crazy gesticulations. Well, “sitting” is a bit of an exaggeration. Usually he’s on his knees, pleading with the Sixers to do good, hence the nickname.
Now, finally, we get to learn about Old Man Knees. He’s just some dude named Alan who made a fortune in the student housing business, which I always knew was a racket. I don’t know why we’re just now noticing him, but I’m glad it’s happening. The more fans like Old Man Knees we can get, the better.
