Sixers very well represented among NBA's most popular jerseys

LeBron James may be king but the Sixers have an impressive triumvirate of their own when it comes to jersey sales for the year.

The NBA and its players association announced the top 15 most popular jerseys on Thursday for the 2018-19 regular season and the Sixers are well represented.

James' Los Angeles Lakers jersey comes in the top spot followed by Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kyrie Irving. Sixers big man Joel Embiid rounds out the top five. The five spot is the highest Embiid has ranked in any season in terms of jerseys sold.

And while no other NBA team has more than two players in the top 15 of sales, the Sixers have three guys in the top 10.

Ben Simmons comes in at ninth on the list behind James Harden (6), Russell Westbrook (7) and Kevin Durant (8). Simmons is followed by his newer teammate in Jimmy Butler at the 10 spot.

In terms of total team sales, the Sixers rank fourth behind only the Lakers, Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics. 

Dwyane Wade, Paul George, Luka Doncic, Damian Lillard and Jayson Tatum round out the top 15, respectively.

Miller Lite fixed their free beer faux pas for Eagles-Saints

After we alerted you yesterday that Miller Lite was going to provide a free beer to folks down on Bourbon Street if the Saints defeat the Eagles on Sunday, it seems the big beer company realized they were leaving the best city and fanbase in sports out in the cold.

And thirsty.

But they righted things today by announcing they'd provide a free cold one to fans in Philadelphia if the Eagles defeat the Saints on Sunday.

So, free beer will be had somewhere thanks to the result of the Eagles-Saints game, we just don't know where yet.

Here's the announcement:

While the challenge is on in New Orleans, Miller Lite is all about celebrating the passion football fans have for their teams everywhere. To add to the excitement of Sunday’s game, Miller Lite will be covering the first round of celebratory brews at select bars in Philly if the Eagles prevail. Fans must be 21+ to enjoy an ice-cold Miller Lite beer. Limit one per customer, while supplies last.

The specifics on when/where you can cash in on this promise have not been determined yet. Rest assured, we want free beer in Philly and NOT New Orleans.

Carlos Santana, J.P. Crawford say goodbye to Philadelphia in classy fashion

On paper, general manager Matt Klentak and the Phillies did very well by trading Carlos Santana and J.P. Crawford for All-Star shortstop Jean Segura and two relief pitchers. 

Neither the 23-year-old Crawford nor Santana, signed to a three-year, $60 million deal last December, performed to expectations in their time as Phillies.

Give both guys credit, though, for going out the right way.

In an Instagram post, Crawford thanked the Phillies organization and Phillies fans for "the inspiration to work as hard as I do, day in and day out." 

Santana, who chose the Phillies in free agency after spending the first eight seasons of his career with the Cleveland Indians, was especially complimentary of the fans in an Instagram post, saying that "your passion for Philadelphia sports energized me and motivated me to do my best."

He even said "hopefully I'll play against you Phillies fans in the World Series!" That seems rather far-fetched given the Mariners' rebuilding approach, but you never know.
