Imagine the Sixers ... but as dogs, the content you definitely need to see

Imagine the Sixers ... but as dogs, the content you definitely need to see

This may very well be the most important piece of content you come across on your internet search today. 

Earlier in the week was National Dog Day and with all of social media covered in puppers, it only made sense to tie it into a post. 

But how

Well, I decided to pull some of the best images from a few of the Sixers and made an attempt to find their parallels as dogs. 

Here are the best ones I came up with: 

Furkan Korkmaz


Mike Scott

Tobias Harris

Shake Milton

Josh Richardson

Matisse Thybulle 

Ben Simmons

Raul Neto

Al Horford

And last but certainly not least ... 

Joel Embiid

You Pick The Game: Which Sixers game should NBCSP air this Saturday night?

The NBA season has been suspended for nearly a month now and it certainly hasn't gotten any easier. 

But that doesn't mean that we need to be without the Sixers entirely. We're giving Authentic Fans a chance to pick which Sixers game we'll broadcast on NBC Sports Philadelphia, the MyTeams app, and right here at NBCSportsPhiladelphia.com.

The voting begins now and the winning game will air Saturday night, April 11, at 7 p.m.  

Here are your options:

 

Sixers vs. Warriors | Jan. 28, 2020

From our story that evening:

The floor was the same and the warmup routines were unaltered, but, as the Sixers prepared to play the Warriors Tuesday, it didn’t feel like a typical game night at Wells Fargo Center.

It clearly wasn’t, after the tragic deaths Sunday of Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others in a helicopter crash.

Sixers player development specialist Roy Hibbert and Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell, former teammates of Bryant’s, talked at half court.

Stephen Curry tapped Joel Embiid on the back to briefly interrupt his warmup and share a few words. 

Before tip-off, the Sixers paid tribute to Bryant and the other victims of the accident in several ways, including through players wearing No. 8 and No. 24 warmup uniforms, and by spotlighting Bryant’s framed No. 33 Lower Merion High School jersey.

The game began with the Sixers taking an eight-second violation, followed by the Warriors taking a 24-second violation. 

Embiid wore No. 24 to honor Bryant after clearing the move with Hall of Fame forward Bobby Jones — the Sixers retired 24 in Jones' honor in 1986. Zhaire Smith sported No. 7 instead of his usual No. 8.

Business eventually resumed, in a way.

Sixers vs. Pelicans | Dec. 13, 2019

From our story from that evening:

The Sixers’ home record is still unblemished.

They beat the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night, 116-109, to move to 20-7 on the season and 14-0 at Wells Fargo Center. This was New Orleans’ 11th straight defeat. 

Tobias Harris scored a team-high 31 points on 12 for 20 shooting, helping the Sixers to overcome an uneven effort.

Sixers' Tobias Harris narrating backyard wild turkeys is quarantine comedy gold

Sixers' Tobias Harris narrating backyard wild turkeys is quarantine comedy gold

Tobias Harris is separated from rookie cult hero and internet goofball Matisse Thybulle, which means he had to find other ways to populate his Instagram stories with comedy.

Enter a bunch of wild turkeys in Harris's backyard.

It's unclear where Harris is riding out the NBA's season suspension, but wherever it is, he was greeted Thursday afternoon by a few preening turkeys, a welcome sight for anyone bored of looking at the same eight things in their house every day.

Harris, of course, whipped out his phone and opened up Instagram, and started filming - and narrating - the impromptu wildlife.

You're gonna want to turn your sound on:

Is... is Harris narrating these turkeys' prospective sex lives? He definitely is, isn't he?

It's all amazing, but Harris getting spooked by the aggressive turkey at the end is an absolute highlight for me. Does he not trust the integrity of those windows?!

Again, we don't know where Harris is spending his time away from basketball, but judging by the fowl play, it might be New Jersey. The Garden State is known for its hordes of wild turkeys - there are roughly 20,000 living in the state - and the Sixers' practice facility is of course located in Camden.

Between Thybulle adding a Roomba as a pet, and now Harris's encounter with wild turkeys, it's certainly been an interesting few weeks of social distancing for the Sixers.
