76ers New Owner Pulls All Nighter Bidding on Dr J Memorobilia

The Philadelphia 76ers new owner, Adam Aron is finding productive ways to stay busy while the NBA season is on hold. Last week he stayed up all night bidding on Julius Erving's memorabilia being auctioned on ebay. To raise some money, Dr. J posted some of his stuff on ebay and Aron decided to try to keep the memorobilia in Philly.

Aron issued this statement to Broad Street Radio. "I will tell you, because it's kind of a wild thing. The auction closed at 10 PM on Saturday night, or at least that's what they said was going to happen. I was bidding on items for the Sixers. But buried in the rules, it said that they wanted to give everybody a fair last shot to bid on items and not get closed out for price reasons. So they were going to keep the auction open until nobody bid on anything for 15 minutes. And they called that the extended bidding period. Well, the auction closed at 10 o'clock, right on schedule. The extended bidding went for eight hours, and literally the auction continued until about six in the morning, and I was bidding on 34 different things. So I was literally up all night until 6 AM, when the auction finished, and we were fortunate enough to get 10 lots."
