Amazing Eagles artwork features name of every Birds player ever

You've likely seen Daniel Duffy's artwork before, be it a Phillies World Series print or Brian Dawkins screaming with passion, and now he's back with a particularly cool Eagles jawn.

If you're not familiar with Duffy's work, he goes by Philly Word Art and uses words to form images. For his latest piece, he uses the name of every Eagles player ... ever! And forms them into the iconic Eagles logo from the '90s era.

We spoke with Duffy about this particular project and he shared some interesting tidbits. He double-checked the names of every player to make the Eagles' roster from the team's inception through the 2016 season. Sorry, Derek Barnett!

The print took about 60 hours to create and features 1,739 names in total.

The most challenging part of the print?

"Just knowing how many people love the Birds and I didn't want to screw it up," Duffy told us. "I wanted to make sure that it was as good as it could be, that's why I went with as many names as possible. The good, the bad and the ugly (Jason Babin)."

He also informed us that, no, Frank Gore did not make the print.

It wasn't all Babins though, Duffy had plenty of fun creating it.

"I enjoyed writing the names of players I've only heard about from my grandfathers and Ray Didinger ... (Steve) Van Buren, (Norm) Van Brocklin and (Tommy) McDonald. As well as recognizing great names grouped very closely to each other ... (Ron) Jaworski, (Wilbert) Montgomery, (Brian) Dawkins, (Donovan) McNabb."

The last name technically should have been Wisniewski but Dan took some artist liberties and ended with Wentz.

JJ Redick hilariously compares himself to LeBron James

The Sixers have a pretty exciting matchup with the Ohklahoma City Thunder this evening and ESPN is promoting it like no other.

As part of their all-day Sixers coverage, JJ Redick sat down with SportsCenter's Philly faithful, Kevin Negandhi, to talk about the state of the Process and all things Philly hoops.

Negandhi asked Redick about how his body feels after playing so much this season at the age of 33.

"I feel great. I feel like I'm a slower, less-athletic, whiter version of LeBron at 33," Redick said.

"No, I'm joking," he added, sadly.

He goes on to talk about the time and resources he invested to play this game at a high level.

The joke starts at the 1:35 mark below.

Other topics include him talking about his day-game meals, his thoughts on Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons having the potential to be transcendant NBA talents, and how he joined the Process at just the right time.

Redick also shouts out Vernick as one of his favorite restaurants in Philly. Good taste.

The Kings blame Joel Embiid for loss

The Kings aren't happy with Joel Embiid.

They placed some blame on the Sixers big man for their 23-point loss Thursday night.

How was Embiid at fault for a game he didn't even play?

Well, the Kings felt the wrath of Karl-Anthony Towns.

Let's just say Embiid may have fired up Towns after he embarrassed the Timberwolves big man on Instagram the night prior (see story). In Embiid's defense, Towns was the instigator (see story).

Nonetheless, Towns went off on the Kings for 30 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, five blocks and a plus-22 rating, leading the Timberwolves to a 119-96 win.

"I came to be an assassin tonight, not a basketball player," Towns said after the victory. "I wanted to try to be as active as possible and just disrupt the game as much as possible as well."

Way to go, JoJo.

Sorry, Kings.
