Nurkic takes shots at Embiid after Blazers' comeback

If you dish it out, you better be able to take it.

That’s the life lesson Joel Embiid will be forced to endure after the Sixers’ star center has frequently opted to troll his opponents on social media after a big performance.

Portland’s Jusuf Nurkic finished Thursday’s 114-110 win over the Sixers with 21 points and 12 rebounds (see game recap). Nurkic got the best of Embiid later in the game as the Blazers rallied from a double-digit deficit, and he wasn’t shy about sharing his feelings about his counterpart after the final buzzer.

“He tries to be more famous than a player,” Nurkic said of Embiid, who had 29 points and nine boards.

“I respect him. He’s a good player. He’s not about tough. He’s a skill player, who is getting tired it looks like. When you play defense on him and play offense on him and attack him, he gets tired more.”

It’s funny how we don’t remember Nurkic tossing out any of those criticisms when Embiid racked up 28 points and 12 rebounds in the Sixers’ 101-81 victory over the Blazers at the Wells Fargo Center back on Nov. 22.

But when you win, you get to say what you want.

Kevin Hart takes his beef with Dwyane Wade to the Miami skies

Dwyane Wade torched the Sixers in Game 2 in Philadelphia on Monday.

Following the big win, Wade said it was comedian Kevin Hart sitting courtside that helped motivate him.

The two took to Twitter to continue their trash talk where Wade pointed out that Hart couldn't be in Miami for Game 3.

That didn't stop Hart from making his presence felt down in Florida. Hart had an airplane fly a message, "Kevin Hart was here," along with a trust the process and Mountain Dew hashtag.

Here's what Hart had to say about it on his Instagram:

Even tho I didn't make it to Miami I felt the need to make my presence felt....Swipe thru my pictures and look at the banner that I had flown across American Airlines Arena....I just wanted to let @dwyanewade know that I'm everywhere 😂😂😂😂 Let’s goooooooo SIXERS!!!!!! Major thank you to my @mountaindew family for helping me pull this off last minute!!!!! #Philadelphia #Playoffs#MountainDewKickStart #TrustTheProcess... that’s what #TTP Means just in case u didn’t know!!!!!!

Did the sky message spook Wade? The Heat legend got off to a slow first half, shooting 0 for 4 from the field with a couple of free throws, but his Heat held a one-point lead at halftime.

Expect Hart to keep the chatter going throughout the series and beyond. That guy likes to talk.

Eagles release amazing documentary covering entire 2017 Super Bowl season

The Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl.

Just wanted to remind any of you who may have forgotten. I know it's not likely, but you never know. There are some weirdos in the world.

And not only did the Eagles win the Super Bowl, they just put together a 45-minute documentary with inside access to the team that only they could provide.

It's titled, "All We Got. All We Need.: 2017 Philadelphia Eagles Season," and you can watch it right now for free on YouTube.

From Doug Pederson speaking to his players at OTAs in the spring — "what are you willing to give up starting today so that we can hold that trophy high come February of next year" — to Doug after Brandon Graham's strip of Tom Brady — "we got the ball! we got the ball! we got the ball!" — this covers all of those amazing moments.

"Eagles fans everywhere, this is for you!" Merrill Reese exclaimed after the final whistle.
