Is Bryan Colangelo primed to lure LeBron James?

King James in Philly?

And for more than just two games a season?

What seems like a dream might have some feasibility to it.

Bryan Colangelo will apparently give it a shot in going after LeBron James, who can hit free agency after this season if he declines his player option with the Cavs.

Per USA TODAY's Jeff Zillgitt, executives around the league believe the Sixers' president of basketball operations will attempt to ink the four-time MVP.

Now, of course, what franchise wouldn't try for James? Any of the 30 teams in the league with an inkling of a chance will do their due diligence if James hits the market.

However, we do know this:

• Colangelo is not one to shy away from making bold moves/acquisitions (i.e., trading up for the 2017 No. 1 draft pick, bringing in JJ Redick and other veteran free agents).

• The Cavs are aging and James turns 33 years old in December, so he may be eyeing the final destination of his career — an up-and-coming team with multiple years of contention in store.

Zillgitt reported in July that James grew frustrated with the Cavs' offseason decisions and efforts, which included a shakeup in the front office.

• As we all know, James and Sixers star rookie Ben Simmons are tight. They are both represented by the same agency (Klutch Sports Group) and James has enjoyed mentoring the 21-year-old. Simmons also shared a fun tweet at James during July, a day after Zillgitt's report surfaced.

• There has always been a mutual appreciation between James and the city of Philadelphia. In November 2015, James hit the career 25,000-point mark at the Wells Fargo Center, eliciting a standing ovation from Sixers fans. "Obviously, they’re Sixers fans to death, but they know and respect the game of basketball," James said then. "To get a standing ovation for reaching that milestone, it was very special."

• And, finally and maybe most importantly, the Sixers have the cap space to go after James, as Zillgitt notes in his article.

This season still needs to play out and the Sixers already have the city abuzz as the process' promise comes into focus.

Imagine LeBron James joining the movement? Sounds like Colangelo is at least picturing it.

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts this week.

Nick Foles also happens to make his season debut as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback this week.

Large quantities of people love Stars Wars. Probably slightly less people love the Eagles. So, naturally, there should be some sort of mashup.

The Internet delivered today with a Star Wars: the Last QB hype video featuring none other than Nicky Foles as the Last Hope. Basically, it's a Nick Foles hype video set to some Star Wars clips and soundbites. Why not? Maybe come February they can edit it again to include Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as the Dark Side when the Eagles are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Watch: Malcolm Jenkins gives impassioned speech after losing Wentz

Sunday was a strange day for the Philadelphia Eagles.

They clinched the NFC East crown and are setting themselves up nicely for a bye week come playoff time. But they also lost their star quarterback for the season.

So how did the team react following the game? Well, thanks to the Eagles' Twitter account, we can now watch the words shared by Doug Pederson and Malcolm Jenkins in the locker room.

Pederson is his usual self with a "there's still work to be done" type of message.

"We're playing for something bigger now, boys," Pederson said. "I'm so proud of you guys."

Malcolm's segment is full of words that were not included because of their sensitive nature, so it's tough to make out everything he said. But he had some fantastic lines and even touched on Wentz's injury.

"We set this up for whoever is in this room, that's who we ride with," Jenkins said. "We all we got, we all we need.

"At the end of the day, we got bigger goals. We get back to work, man. You know what's in our minds, bro. Championship and that's it, man. Nothing short of that."
