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.
Dwyane Wade torched the Sixers in Game 2 in Philadelphia on Monday.
Following the big win, Wade said it was comedian Kevin Hart sitting courtside that helped motivate him.
The two took to Twitter to continue their trash talk where Wade pointed out that Hart couldn't be in Miami for Game 3.
That didn't stop Hart from making his presence felt down in Florida. Hart had an airplane fly a message, "Kevin Hart was here," along with a trust the process and Mountain Dew hashtag.
Here's what Hart had to say about it on his Instagram:
Even tho I didn't make it to Miami I felt the need to make my presence felt....Swipe thru my pictures and look at the banner that I had flown across American Airlines Arena....I just wanted to let @dwyanewade know that I'm everywhere 😂😂😂😂 Let’s goooooooo SIXERS!!!!!! Major thank you to my @mountaindew family for helping me pull this off last minute!!!!! #Philadelphia #Playoffs#MountainDewKickStart #TrustTheProcess... that’s what #TTP Means just in case u didn’t know!!!!!!
Did the sky message spook Wade? The Heat legend got off to a slow first half, shooting 0 for 4 from the field with a couple of free throws, but his Heat held a one-point lead at halftime.
Expect Hart to keep the chatter going throughout the series and beyond. That guy likes to talk.
The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.
Just wanted to remind any of you who may have forgotten. I know it's not likely, but you never know. There are some weirdos in the world.
And not only did the Eagles win the Super Bowl, they just put together a 45-minute documentary with inside access to the team that only they could provide.
It's titled, "All We Got. All We Need.: 2017 Philadelphia Eagles Season," and you can watch it right now for free on YouTube.
From Doug Pederson speaking to his players at OTAs in the spring — "what are you willing to give up starting today so that we can hold that trophy high come February of next year" — to Doug after Brandon Graham's strip of Tom Brady — "we got the ball! we got the ball! we got the ball!" — this covers all of those amazing moments.
"Eagles fans everywhere, this is for you!" Merrill Reese exclaimed after the final whistle.
