Seriously, who doesn’t like free stuff?

Even a guy with the word “Sir” preceding his name, a rock-and-roll legend, a man worth over a half-billion dollars likes to get stuff he didn’t pay for. It’s a universal urge. How else to explain Paul McCartney wanting a free T-shirt at a Brooklyn Nets game in the worst way?

He left the Barclays Center empty-handed, but at least he had those sweet nosebleed seats from which to watch the Nets thrash the Philadelphia 76ers.
