What's an Eagles game against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football without a little trash talk? Or, in this case, a lot of trash talk.
Yes, we hate the Cowboys, but which ones do we really despise? The rivalry doesn't have quite the same number of villains as it did during, say, the 90s, when Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin and their band of criminals were racking up Super Bowl wins. Even in recent years, the venom has dipped with the departures of more recent stars such as Tony Romo.
This is a team that's been to the NFL playoffs in two of the last three years, yet seems almost unrecognizable as far as hatable names and faces. Fortunately, NBC Sports' Andrew Kulp has you covered.
Joel Embiid was legendary on the court Wednesday night (see story).
And he was just as good in his postgame interview with Sixers courtside reporter Molly Sullivan.
He can credit Kevin Hart for an assist, too.
The beloved comedian from Philadelphia was in attendance for Embiid's unforgettable night in which the big man delivered 46 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists and seven blocks in the Sixers' 115-109 win over the Lakers in Hollywood (see observations).
Hart jumped into the interview to shout an appropriate chant.
Embiid joined right in.
You can watch the interview above. The entire thing is a classic.
Just listen for the part when Embiid is asked at what percent does he feeling like he's playing.
This guy sure knows how to entertain.
And, as you all know, he's not bad on social media, either. Like always, be sure to check out the location on his Instagram post.
Allen Iverson's BIG3 playing days are over.
Or did they ever really begin?
Remember that whole fiasco?
Philly certainly does. If you recall, Iverson did not play when the 3-on-3 league hit Philadelphia on its tour. "The Answer" was expected to do so, drawing a large crowd at the Wells Fargo Center before deciding late that he wasn't taking the hardwood and would only coach.
Iverson followed it up with a no-show in Dallas.
As you can see here, he didn't play much at all in Year 1 of the league.
None of that drama will exist moving forward as the BIG3 announced Monday that Iverson is returning, but strictly in a coaching role for 3's Company.
After all, he is 42 years old and put his body through the wars during his Hall of Fame career.
One cool addition to the league is Metta World Peace, who will actually play under his former name Ron Artest. For more on the players and rosters, click here.
Meanwhile, you'll see A.I. on the sidelines ... we think.
