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.

Asked about LeBron James after Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

After the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"

Irving's response ... NSFW ...

WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.

Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.

So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."

With the video circulating on social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.

Joel Embiid expects 90 percent of his tweets to go viral

One of the things that I love about Joel Embiid is the fact that it seems like every day we find another reason to love him even more.

Today's entry comes from a profile in GQ magazine in which he talks about plenty of things. But it was one of the first things he was asked about his Twitter account that had me rolling once again.

How do you find out if one of [your tweet] has gone viral, then?

Joel: I think 90 percent of them [will be viral]. That’s the expectation.

Amazing. The thing is, I don't know if he's giving himself enough credit. ONLY 90%????

Oh, and he subscribes to the Jah Rule school of thought: WHO CARES?

"Then I had so much time, too, because I missed that whole year and the second year after, so I didn’t have anything to do," Embiid said. "[I’d] just go on social media and converse with fans, make crazy jokes, and tweet crazy stuff because I don’t care. I say whatever I want to."

His critique of other players' boring Twitter accounts is also incredibly on point:

What do you mean some guys are always tweeting the same thing?

Joel: Bullshit like, “Game Day!” “It’s a great game.” I don’t know. They’re all the same. It’s boring.

Amen.

The whole Q&A is worth any Sixers fan's time just to get to know a little more about Jojo. Be happy he's ours. And pray he stays healthy so he can take his game on the court to the same level as his game off of it.
