Sixers Twitter has good laugh at Bucks owner throwing shade at The Process

Sixers Twitter has good laugh at Bucks owner throwing shade at The Process

It's a joyous time for Process Trusters.

That's because the fruits of the Process Tree that Sam Hinkie planted the seeds for appear to be blooming this week. Bryan Colangelo is using the assets that Hinkie helped put in place to go out and get the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft, presumably Markelle Fultz.

That's a pretty nice get. And when you put Fultz alongside other Process originals like Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Dario Saric, the Process seems to be heading in the right direction.

That's why it seems a bit curious for the owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, Wes Edens, to be calling out the Philly Process right now.

This line came today when the Bucks introduced Jon Horst as the team's new general manager, which is fine. I'm sure he's a competent and nice guy.

The Sixers had some fun with it though.

Edens was asked at the Horst introductory press conference about what he learned from the process of hiring Horst as GM.

"The guys in Philly like to talk about the process an awful lot, I'd rather talk about the results. I feel really good about the results on this. You can have your process but I mean... process may look like it's a little bit sloppy but at the end of the day it's the result that matters. We got the right guy for the job. There's not a lot of hand wringing about what we could have done diferently."

Just as a quick reminder, the Bucks got knocked out of the 2017 NBA playoffs in the first round and last won an NBA championship in 1971. So, the results haven't exactly been worth bragging about.

Yes, they do have Giannis Antetokounmpo which is enviable but I'm not sure what else the Bucks have to brag about. Not that either team has any real on-court success to brag about lately. But The Process appears to moving along just nicely.

Sixers fans enjoyed the Twitter clapback.

Drew Pearson announcing Eagles as Super Bowl champs is beautiful

Wanna hear Drew Pearson call your Eagles the Super Bowl 52 champions?

Obviously.

Pearson, who single-handedly offended the entire city of Philadelphia last year with his rant at the podium before announcing the Cowboys’ draft pick last year, just got a taste of his own medicine. To refresh your memory or if you feel like getting angry again, here it is again below.

The Eagles shared a video Thursday night on their social media account of Pearson, yelling to the entire stadium in Dallas, honoring the Super Bowl 52 champs.

It will warm your heart, despite the minor boos.

“Let’s hear it for your Super Bowl 52 champions, the Philadelphia Eagles,” he said.

Say it louder for the people in the back. 

This Ben Simmons rookie card is made out of gold and is crazy valuable

This Ben Simmons rookie card is made out of gold and is crazy valuable

Ben Simmons is already a treasure to the city of Philadelphia in his first season playing for the Sixers. But one of his rookie cards is literally worth a fortune.

Bleacher Report posted a fun story today about an Oregon man who spent $129 for a box of high end Panini Gold Standard cards with the hopes of finding a card that is actually made of gold -- like, the metal.

The collectible world has apparently been searching for the unfound Simmons' rookie. And then... Like the Sixers in 2016 with the No. 1 overall pick, Wendell Williams hit the lottery.

Williams broke open the box his son had chosen, and as he flipped through, he found what everyone was seeking. A one-of-a-kind 2016-17 Ben Simmons Panini redemption rookie card made out of 14-karat gold—a holy grail in the basketball card community.

A month has passed since he hit the luck of the draw, the card-collecting forums barely containing themselves, and Williams is receiving offers of nearly $100,000 for his discovery. For now, he's turning them all down, waiting on the right price.

He has the card listed with a $150,000 "buy it now" option but says in the article that he doesn't even know if he'd take that. He's already received offers close to six figures.

It makes me wonder if my personal stash of Clarance Weatherspoon rookies is still in my parent's basement somewhere.
