Brits pronounce Philly words better than we do

Brits pronounce Philly words better than we do

The 76ers are across the pond this week for the fun international contest against the Boston Celtics. That game will air Thursday on NBC Sports Philadelphia at 3 p.m. on the East Coast. But with some downtime in the days leading up to it, we sent some camera crews out to make some new friends and test their Philly vocabulary.

Let's be honest, I had to Google how to spell Conshohocken and Bala Cynwyd to write this post. So the fact that the Brits in the above video barely struggled to pronounce those two is quite impressive.

And, for real, if these Londoners told me we were pronouncing this list of Philly words wrong, as long as they said it with those accents, I'd believe them.

As for the Sixers players, they seem to be enjoying the trip as you can see below at the Tower of London. Even if they don't know all the local slang over there just yet.

Joel Embiid throws shade at Bucks owner

The self-proclaimed Social Media King strikes again.

After scoring 29 points and pulling down nine rebounds en route to leading the Sixers to a 116-94 win over the Bucks, Joel Embiid took to Instagram to take one more dig at Milwaukee's owner, Wes Edens.

Getting it done #TheResults

A post shared by Joel "The Process" Embiid (@joelembiid) on

Peep the location: "The Results U."

Need a quick refresher?

Flashback to June 19, 2017, Edens threw some serious shade toward The Process.

So let's talk about the results.

The Sixers are now 1-0 against the Bucks since Edens' choice words last summer and Embiid β€” the poster child of The Process β€” put up some serious numbers.

Small sample size β€¦ but Embiid continues to be the ultimate and lovable troll he is.

Oh, you thought we here in Philadelphia were special? You thought Bud Light liked Eagles fans more than they liked Vikings fans?


Bud Light likes fans who purchase their beer.

But yes, Bud Light did make a special little promo for Eagles fans playing off their "Dilly, Dilly!" campaign that for some strange reason many people seem to like. And get this, it uses "Philly, Philly!"

Because it rhymes.

You can watch that right here and the three other spots they made for the Viking, Patriots, and Jaguars below. The Patriots' one is probably the best.
