The 76ers wrapped rookie JaKarr Sampson's car in tin foil

Thursday January 22nd, 2015

Playing for the 76ers is pretty embarrassing. Losing to the Knicks is even more embarrassing. So why did JaKarr Sampson have to get embarrassed again after Wednesday's loss?

The 76ers missed five shots in a row at the basket​

Someone, hopefully his teammates in a playful bit of rookie hazing, wrapped Sampson's car in tin foil. You can tell it's his because he's got "KARR 14" vanity plates. 

It could have been worse, though. After Jazz center Rudy Gobert forgot to bring donuts to a morning shootaround last year, his teammates filled his car with popcorn.
