Former Sixer, Villanova star Tim Thomas to settle long-time NBA feud in the boxing ring

Former Sixer, Villanova star Tim Thomas to settle long-time NBA feud in the boxing ring

Tim Thomas was once a star at Villanova and spent two seasons with the Sixers during a 12-year NBA career.

His newest venture? Amateur boxer, according to 50 Cent (yes, THAT 50 Cent). (WARNING: Video is NSFW)

Thomas will apparently square off against fellow NBA vet Kenyon Martin -- whom Thomas has feuded with over the year -- in the undercard of the ballyhooed match between Chris Brown and Soulja Boy. Retired boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is promoting the bout reportedly to be held in Las Vegas.

This whole thing is weird. Really, really weird.

But if you wanna watch two ex-NBA players get gassed after two minutes and inflict exactly zero harm on each other, you're in luck.

Howard, Rollins, Utley, Manuel connected again in fun way

This was pretty darn cool.

The core members from the greatest run in Phillies franchise history were all connected in a way on Wednesday night.

Jimmy Rollins, who has been performing in-studio analysis for TBS during the MLB postseason, was joined by special guest Ryan Howard.

The ballgame they watched and analyzed? Game 4 of the Dodgers-Cubs NLCS, featuring old friend and teammate Chase Utley.

And then beloved former manager Charlie Manuel joined the fun. Let's just say he was a fan of the TBS crew.

Next season marks the 10-year anniversary of the 2008 world champion club.

Let's hope all four can reunite at Citizens Bank Park for the festivities.

That'll be special.

Twitter roasts the heck out of Markelle Fultz's brutal free throws

Oh man, oh man, oh man. It's finally here. The 2017-18 Sixers season is underway with our squad locked in a pretty tightly contested game down in Washington after a quarter of play.

We've already seen Joel Embiid attempt to destroy the world -- and get fouled.

But the most buzzed about moment from the first frame of the Sixers' young season was clearly when Markelle Fultz went to the foul line and... well, tossed up some ugly bricks.

This isn't the first time we've seen this but it is the first time non-preseason Sixers fans are seeing it. We wondered aloud if the Sixers were doing the right thing with Fulz prior to tonight's game. The lack of information on his injuries is troubling. So what's the deal with that form?

Well, Twitter had a field day with it.

Although Fultz's shoulder looked perfectly fine on this delicious block! He also had a couple of early buckets.

It's a long season, rook. Just please work on that free throw motion.
