Dr. J and Iverson look pretty great in NBA 2K18

Not a lot to work with here, but Julius Erving and Allen Iverson are apparently in the latest version of NBA 2K and look pretty sharp.

Both Sixers legends are seen wearing the Sixers' new Nike uniforms. Julius is rocking his signature afro while Iverson has some gnarly facial hair going.

The only real complaint, as blogging impresario meechone points out, is that A.I. is seen doing the Steph Curry turn-and-run-away-from-the-shot move. Can't recall Bubba Chuck using that one during his heyday.

And while young Sixers fans who wanted to see Iverson play in the BIG3 last month came up empty, maybe a digital A.I. will give them a little glimpse of what they were missing back in the day.

Iverson and Erving look to be a part of NBA 2K18's new All-Time Teams feature, which will pit some of the greatest to ever take the court against each other. I think I saw this in a Rocky movie once. You can check out a trailer for that below.

Here's what the Sixers' All-Time squad will look like and Marc Zumoff isn't happy with one glaring omision.

Sixers players react to Gordon Hayward's horrific leg injury

You absolutely hate to see it.

That's how the sports world felt Tuesday night when Celtics small forward Gordon Hayward suffered a gruesome leg injury during the NBA opener against the Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The injury, which is graphic, can be seen here. Hayward has been diagnosed with a fractured left ankle.

Instantly, an outpouring of support spread across the NBA.

Here is some reaction from Sixers players:

Eagles rookie Sidney Jones knows about tough injuries. He's recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.

And the terrible injury produced some powerful scenes and images.

Nolan Patrick shows his wizardry with through-the-legs pass for goal

We've heard so much about Nolan Patrick's vision and passing ability.

Now we know why.

Patrick on Tuesday delivered the first jaw-dropping highlight of his NHL career when he slickly dropped a pass through his legs for a trailing Dale Weise, who finished the play with the Flyers' fourth second-period goal of the night (see observations).

You can watch the play in the video above … and just, wow.

Patrick, only 19 years old, does it so naturally and without even looking — at all — in Weise's direction.

Some Flyers were seen on the bench smiling in amazement of the teenager.

And it probably won't be the only time.
