Money man Joel Embiid shows he's money with half-court shot, lets teammates know it

Life couldn't be better for Sixers center Joel Embiid at the moment.

Embiid is entering his fourth season in Philadelphia and he just signed a five-year contract extension worth $148 million.

He showed his love for fans Tuesday.

“I don’t think without them I’d get this extension," Embiid said. "They did a lot for me. Even though I don’t think they know that, I think they pushed me a lot.”

He also showed some range in practice, drilling a half-court shot and a fadeaway jumper. After draining the half-court shot, you can see Embiid dancing and celebrating in front of Kris Humphries and Jahlil Okafor. 

For the crazy shot and the ensuing fun, watch the video above.

Eagles respond to Vikings with Twitter burn


Eagles respond to Vikings with Twitter burn

In case you forgot, the Eagles are Super Bowl champions, beat the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 to get the chance to play the New England Patriots — in Minnesota — and beat them in one of the most exciting games in history.

They’re not done picking up W’s either.

On Saturday, St. Patrick’s Day, the Minnesota Vikings sent out this tweet and the Eagles collected their first win as defending champs, with the burn on Twitter.

The Eagles then replied with this tremendous photo of Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles and new Vikings QB Kirk Cousins (who lost the lone playoff game he started with the Redskins) in their days as teammates at Michigan State before Foles went on to star at the University of Arizona.

Many fans went to the comments to point out that the initial post was, probably, a dig at the Vikings' NFC North rivals, the Green Bay Packers, but with the two teams poised to have strong seasons in 2018 and possibly beyond, there could be a new-age rivalry brewing.

If reports are correct, that saga could continue as soon as the very first game of the next NFL season, too.

Kevin Hart finally gets his Lombardi Trophy

Kevin Hart finally has his Lombardi Trophy.

Hart, a comedian and a native of Philadelphia, had a few too many adult beverages during Super Bowl LII and attempted to get to the stage for the presentation of the trophy. He was unsurprisingly denied.

But Hart refused to accept "no" for an answer.

The lesson here is, if you're big enough of a celebrity to get on the field after your hometown team wins the Super Bowl, you probably have enough coin to just buy your own trophy instead of trying to drunkenly crash the trophy presentation.
