Joel Embiid runs Philadelphia ... literally

There are certain things you expect to see at a traffic light in Philadelphia.

SEPTA buses, food carts, people on bicycles/skateboards/dirt bikes and … NBA centers working on their cardio.

That was the case on Monday night as a Lyft driver caught Sixers center Joel Embiid jogging through the Philly streets.

Per the video (via Sports Illustrated), the driver was sitting at a red light in the city when a large man in basketball gear came running by with another individual. At the same moment, the driver received a request for a ride that took him in the direction of the runners. 

When the car caught back up with the pair, the driver’s suspicions were confirmed when he saw a person in a pickup truck driving alongside the runners and having a conversation with the big man.

Without the angle to get over, the Lyft driver could only blurt out the first thing that came to mind, “Yo, trust the process. I love you.”

Embiid acknowledged the driver by raising his hands in the air as he continued his run.

Basketball never stops and neither does the process.

Watch the entire encounter in the video below.

Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers


Newest Eagle rocks fabulous furry Gucci sneakers

Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.

The newest member of the Eagles linebacking crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.

If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:

When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.

It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.

His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]

Carson Wentz bouncing around on road to recovery


Carson Wentz bouncing around on road to recovery

Not only did the Philadelphia Eagles win the Super Bowl last month, but their fans were also treated to an encouraging site on Monday morning: Carson Wentz throwing a football.

Wentz shared some video to his Instagram story in which you can see him throwing a football from multiple angles while wearing a brace on his knee.

Back in January before the Super Bowl, the Eagles quarterback revealed that the knee injury he suffered in December was worse than originally thought. He tore his left LCL in addition to his ACL but he said then that he hoped to be back for Week 1.

"My goal is to be ready for Week 1," Wentz said. "I'm going to push and do everything I can to be ready. And I'm very confident in that."

"I'm feeling confident with it and I said it in the video I posted right after the injury — I 100 percent believe I'll be back better than ever, stronger than ever, with no looking back." 

No reason to believe any of that has changed over the last month and a half and it sure looks like he's progressing.
