AI: Not Charlotte?!?

AI: Not Charlotte?!?

Iverson's like "CHARLOTTE?!?!  They have a team???  Holy shit.  Wait!  Forget it!  I'll stay!  I'll stay.  Jesus.  Forget I said anything."

Let's check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer's article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte.  A poster "Reality" weighs in:

You people all need to get a grip. It's the freaking SIXERS. This
team has no heart, no coach and no talent. Get used to it for the next
5 years because this isn't a quick fix.

I personally only watch the Sixers for two reasons.

1.
For the outside chance that Hip Hop one day will break his ankle while
doing one of his trampoline dunks. Either that or the guy inside of the
costume has a heart attack and starts convulsing on the hardwood floor.
If I was the PR guy I'd have a halftime spectacular of blindfolding
that piece of trash mascot and making him run around the court trying
to dodge bear traps. A rapping, dancing, urban rabbit for a mascot ...
a big "Bravo!" to the marketing genius who thought up of that one.

2.
When I overeat at dinner, I turn on the Sixers to get a glance of Dee
Lynam to instantaneously throw up any food in my body and pass out from
looking at that troll. I've never seen such a train wreck of a woman.
For the love of God ... comb your hair, put on some makeup to cover up
your pock marks on your face and stop wearing blouses that show off
your grandmom cleavage. If I had the choice, I'd rather make love to
Tyrone Hill ... and I'm a heterosexual male.

Thank the Lord for comment sections.

Jordan Hicks leaves game vs. Redskins with ankle injury

The Eagles lost middle linebacker Jordan Hicks on the second play of Monday night's game against the Redskins. 

Hicks suffered an ankle injury and was almost carried off the field without being able to place any weight on his right leg. After getting checked out on the sideline, he was carted into the Eagles' locker room. 

After the Eagles originally said Hicks was questionable to return, they ruled him out a little while later. 

Hicks was in some clear pain coming off the field. As he waited for the cart, he was consoled by injured safety Chris Maragos, who was lost for the season in Carolina. 

Coming into Monday's game, Hicks was listed as questionable with a calf injury. He said he hurt his calf after overcompensating for his injured ankle. On Saturday, when asked if he was 100 percent, Hicks said "who is?" 

Hicks played in all 16 games last season but has struggled with injuries dating back to his years in college. He played eight games as a rookie in 2015 before tearing his pec. 

Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) was inactive on Monday, so the Eagles are down to Nigel Bradham, Najee Goode and Joe Walker in their base defense.
