So on Tuesday morning, they flew in to attend the preseason game at Phones 4U Arena. Stubbe wore a black No. 3 Allen Iverson Sixers jersey. Weyand wore a blue No. 35 Kevin Durant Thunders jersey.
Both used to root for the Sixers until Iverson was traded to the Denver Nuggets in 2006.
"Now, I follow OKC because it is a young, talented team," Weyand said. "I love the play of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden."
He paused before saying, "I'm really, really disappointed" that Harden was traded to the Houston Rockets last October.
"I love basketball, so I watch every team except Miami," Weyand said. "I'm a hater, because of LeBron [James]. So I hate him. He's a good player."
"Love the game, hate the player," Stubbe chimed in.
Stubbe would never say anything bad about his beloved 76ers. In his eyes, Iverson could do no wrong.
"Maybe it's his killer crossover, he's short, the way he changed his [braids] every two or three weeks," Stubbe said. "It's everything about him. I think it's the way he dresses. It's the whole style."
