Kevin Durant's most recent sit down with Bill Simmons has produced some very entertaining basketball talk that included a couple of fun Sixers-related nuggets.
In part 1, KD mentioned being most excited to go up against Ben Simmons from this year's rookie class.
In part 2, Durant discusses Markelle Fultz's "hesi pull-up jimbo," a nickname for his jump shot move that will definitely come up more in the years to come. "Hesi" stands for hesitation.
Durant shares that the guy who taught Fultz the move also taught it to him back in the day.
"So you hesi with the left — when I seen Markelle Fultz do it, he hesi'd with left and didn't put it back down, he went straight into the shot; that's tough. The dude who taught him that taught me that. I know the hours of work he put in on that."
KD clarifies that the jimbo, or jimmie, is a jumper. Both Durant and Fultz hail from outside the Washington, DC area.
You'll get to know Fultz's move real well this coming season.
Listen for the Fultz segment around the 26:00 minute mark below:
Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.
He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.
So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.
"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."
"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"
"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.
Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.
The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.
We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.
Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.
"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."
But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.
"They deserve love," Cowherd said.
Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
