Packers receiver carted off on stretcher after brutal hit from Eagles safety

There was a scary moment in the Philadelphia Eagles first preseason game against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Thursday night when Birds' safety Tre Sullivan laid a brutal hit on receiver Malachi Dupre.

Dupre remained motionless on the ground for a few minutes and was later placed on a stretcher and carted off the field.

Both teams were down on a knee looking on with great concern as the severity of the injury was unclear.

Dupre gave a thumbs up as he was being carted of and received loud ovations from the Green Bay crowd.

The play took place early in the fourth quarter with the Packers leading, 17-9. Both players are fighting for a spot on their respective rosters.

Dupre's status was updated later in the game to say he "has movement and feeling in all of his extremeties and has been taken to a hospital for further evaluation."

Here's a look at the hit, which both of the broadcasters, Mike Mayock and Scott Graham, on the Eagles Television Network believed to be clean.

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

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.
