LaVar Ball insults Joel Embiid's intelligence, then demonstrates his own lack of it

LaVar Ball insults Joel Embiid's intelligence, then demonstrates his own lack of it

The war of words may never end.

At least it's going to have to be Joel Embiid and the Sixers who will have to take the high road if they don't want LaVar Ball clapping back. Because you know he's always going to clap back.*

Following the whole Olivia Simmons thing a couple of weeks back coupled with Ben and Joel ripping on LaVar Ball on draft night, LaVar said some unkind things about the Sixers which Embiid was then asked about during an Instagram Live session. He said F--- 'em.

And today we have a response from LaVar, courtesy of TMZ who got it on video.

"The reason he said that... he got three words because his vocabulary is limited. You gotta use cuss words when you've got no intelect," LaVar said.

Then, in a beautiful twist, he ripped on Embiid's intelligence while demonstrating his own lack of it.

"He's not intelligent at all. He's worried about me, he should be worried about playing. I got three words for him: 'Can't play at all.' Oh shoot, that's four."

"He's small change."

The drama continues. Now just give me some Lakers vs. Sixers basketball, please.

*side note: what does "clapping back" actually mean? Where did it come from? I just say it without really knowing what it means.

Eagles fan performs most beautiful version of 'Hallelujah' in tribute to Wentz

Eagles fan performs most beautiful version of 'Hallelujah' in tribute to Wentz

There have been some tremendous covers of Leonard Cohen's masterpiece, "Hallelujah," over the years.

Jeff Buckley's immediately comes to mind. The kids these days are into Pentatonix. Kate McKinnon as Hillary Clinton to cold open SNL was a work of art.

But one Philadelphia Eagles fan may have recorded the most beautiful, heart-wrenching version yet. It's a tribute to recently fallen hero of Philadelphia, Carson Wentz.

You may be suspect before you click and watch, but wait 'til you hear the lyrics. This refrain will absolutely sell you:

He goes through his reads, the 4th, the 5th

Does a spin, makes the lineman miss

He throws to Ertz, a touchdown - hallelujah!

Brings a tear to the eye. Miss you, Carson.

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

'The Last QB:' A Nick Foles-Star Wars hype video exists

Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts this week.

Nick Foles also happens to make his season debut as the Philadelphia Eagles' starting quarterback this week.

Large quantities of people love Stars Wars. Probably slightly less people love the Eagles. So, naturally, there should be some sort of mashup.

The Internet delivered today with a Star Wars: the Last QB hype video featuring none other than Nicky Foles as the Last Hope. Basically, it's a Nick Foles hype video set to some Star Wars clips and soundbites. Why not? Maybe come February they can edit it again to include Bill Belichick and Tom Brady as the Dark Side when the Eagles are set to take on the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
