J.P. Crawford hits rare inside-the-park grand slam capped with amazing slide

J.P. Crawford hits rare inside-the-park grand slam capped with amazing slide

After getting pretty beat up by minor-league baseball experts, J.P. Crawford continues his recent hot streak.

Crawford pulled off a play on Wednesday night that you certainly don't see every day. He hit a rare inside-the-park GRAND SLAM.

But he should have been out. The solid throw from the outfield to home plate clearly had him beat but the catcher was pretty nonchalant with his tag and Crawford managed a pretty good slide underneath.

Safe!

It was Crawford's ninth home run of the season.

Lehigh Valley went on to beat the Gwinnett Braves 8-2 and Crawford finished the night 1 for 3 with four RBIs and two runs scored.

Asked about LeBron James during Sixers game, Kyrie Irving says @*#^*!#%&*

Apparently, Kyrie Irving doesn't want to talk about LeBron James.

During the Celtics' win over the Sixers on Friday, a fan asked Irving, "Where's LeBron?"

Irving's response ... NSFW ...

WARNING: The video contains offensive language. But if that kind of thing doesn't bother you, you can watch it here.

Irving was asked about the incident by reporters Saturday.

So what he's basically saying is "sorry, not sorry."

With the video circulating on social media, expect Irving to hear from the league.

Joel Embiid expects 90 percent of his tweets to go viral

One of the things that I love about Joel Embiid is the fact that it seems like every day we find another reason to love him even more.

Today's entry comes from a profile in GQ magazine in which he talks about plenty of things. But it was one of the first things he was asked about his Twitter account that had me rolling once again.

How do you find out if one of [your tweet] has gone viral, then?

Joel: I think 90 percent of them [will be viral]. That’s the expectation.

Amazing. The thing is, I don't know if he's giving himself enough credit. ONLY 90%????

Oh, and he subscribes to the Jah Rule school of thought: WHO CARES?

"Then I had so much time, too, because I missed that whole year and the second year after, so I didn’t have anything to do," Embiid said. "[I’d] just go on social media and converse with fans, make crazy jokes, and tweet crazy stuff because I don’t care. I say whatever I want to."

His critique of other players' boring Twitter accounts is also incredibly on point:

What do you mean some guys are always tweeting the same thing?

Joel: Bullshit like, “Game Day!” “It’s a great game.” I don’t know. They’re all the same. It’s boring.

Amen.

The whole Q&A is worth any Sixers fan's time just to get to know a little more about Jojo. Be happy he's ours. And pray he stays healthy so he can take his game on the court to the same level as his game off of it.
