Listen to Raul Neto show you exactly how to pronounce his tricky name

Listen to Raul Neto show you exactly how to pronounce his tricky name

There were plenty of memorable moments from the Sixers' big press conference on Friday morning over at their training facility in Camden, New Jersey.

Al Horford loved the view of the Philadelphia skyline and was raring to get to work. Tobias Harris talked about working out with Ben Simmons yesterday in Los Angeles. Josh Richardson spoke about the Sixers' "bloodbath" mentality. Kyle O'Quinn showed he's willing to play any role the team needs out of him. James Ennis is happy to be back and wouldn't back down from his championship aspirations.

And then there was Raul Neto, whose name is sometimes a challenge to pronounce. Heck, even Josh Harris appeared to get it wrong when talking about him today. Elton Brand nailed it, though.

Neto didn't get asked a ton of questions on Friday but could play a very important guard role off the bench for the Sixers in their championship quest.

But back to that tricky name for a second. The Sixers' social team went right to the source, Neto himself, to help everybody out with the pronunciation.

Got it? Good. I'm sure sports talk radio callers will get it correct 100% of the time.

Watch Ben Simmons put up the most jumpers we've seen in latest video

Just when you thought you got your final batch of Ben Simmons taking jumper videos, some fresh ones hit the Twittersphere Wednesday.

And this was probably the most shots of him taking actual NBA threes we’ve gotten.

While none of this really matters until Simmons takes these shots in an actual NBA game, the confidence he shows in these videos is encouraging.

And while these types of video are always edited just right to make the subject look good, it is nice to see the shots actually going down.
