Josh Richardson finally returned this week, after an extended absence from what he does best.
Playing basketball? Maybe. But also, tweeting about breakfast cereal.
Richardson, the Sixers' ebullient 26-year-old guard, is one of the team's most Online players, sharing his opinions on video games and boneless wings, and making his Twitter icon a strangely Photoshopped picture of... himself.
And his most consistent bit online is sharing his opinions on, and love for, cereal, because it doesn't matter how much money you make: cereal is a grand uniter.
On Tuesday night, after the Sixers' gigantic home win over the Clippers - in which Richardson went off with a game-sealing fourth quarter performance - Richardson shared a photo of his burgeoning cereal collection as he decided on a fitting celebratory snack:
In late December, Richardson led us on a roller coaster of a late-night adventure after opting for a bowl of Frosted Flakes and Cinnamon Toast Crunch:

But his cereal love dates back way, way earlier than his time with the Sixers.
Here's Richardson tweeting, unprompted, at General Mills about a new cereal:
@GeneralMills APPLE CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH.?! Really.?! Who do you think you are😐 now I gotta go spend my rent money on cereal 🚶🏾— Josuélito (@J_Rich1) July 23, 2017
Here's Richardson tweeting about only having cereal in his apartment before his rookie year with the Heat:
That first grocery store run😩 just brought life to my apt..!!! I had a bottle of milk, a Gatorade and some apple jacks before😂— Josuélito (@J_Rich1) September 4, 2015
Here's Richardson being distressed by Poland's cereal choices, when he spent two weeks abroad with Athletes for Action:
I need some cereal. AND NOT CORN FLAKES. ALL THEY EAT HERE IS CORN FLAKES— Josuélito (@J_Rich1) June 2, 2012
And here's Richardson with an enormous bowl of cereal as a freshman at Tennessee:
Giant bowl of cereal for dinner? Check. pic.twitter.com/J9FQ7STC— Josuélito (@J_Rich1) February 16, 2012
Richardson is clearly very serious about his cereal, and his followers have shared plenty of thoughts about both his cereal inventory and his two-cereal creations, like Cookie Flakes , which one can only assume is a combination of Frosted Flakes and Cookie Crisp.
The one cereal the young guard can't stand?
Sorry, Honey Bunches of Oats. This Cereal Influencer isn't interested.
