Ben Simmons' sister wants her bro to dunk on Lonzo Ball and his dad to watch

Ben Simmons' sister wants her bro to dunk on Lonzo Ball and his dad to watch

It's been a minute since a Philly sports team has had a vocal mother on the scene -- miss you Mama McDaniels! -- but it appears as if we have entered into a new realm today: that of the angry sports sister.

Say hello to Ben Simmons' sister Olivia. 

She's not a fan of Lonzo Ball or his father.

Then she took some shots at LaVar Ball's Big Baller Brand not marketing to women.

The gripe, it seems, really has to do with the father. She continued.

You can go over to her feed and take a gander for yourself for more of her takes. She likes to call herself "savage" repeatedly, so watch out.

It's unclear what exactly set Olivia off, but it could be the comments he made yesterday directed at Fox Sports host Kristine Leahy which appeared quite sexist

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.
