The Sixers have been known as a progressive team when it comes to creative ideas used to help get their players to the All-Star Game. Well, Joel Embiid has at least.

But now his teammate is getting in on the action.

You may have seen Ben Simmons' outspoken sister Olivia on Twitter before. Her tweet about wanting Ben to dunk on Lonzo ball made waves over the summer

She even popped up on the Sixers' telecast a couple of weeks back, going crazy in the stands, and getting a shoutout from Alaa Abdelnaby.

Now she's using her unique acces to put out some quality Twitter content in an attempt to get her lil bro more NBA All-Star votes.

Following last night's win over the Spurs -- after which Brett Brown wanted to give honors to Ben -- Olivia shared a video of a tiny little 4-year old Ben dunking on a Fischer-Price-style net, complete with the #NBAVote hashtag.

It's not surprising Ben could always blow past defenders and get to the rim.

Fan votes will make up 50% of the vote this season, with current players and the media making up 25% each. You can read much more on the voting process here and expect the first voting update today at some point.

Simmons has had an impressive rookie season, averaging just under 17 points, 8.5 boards, 7.4 assists, and 1.9 steals per game.

With the Sixers eliminated, Joel Embiid was asked at his end-of-the-season press conference if he had a prediction for which remaining team would win the NBA championship.

His response was short and simple.

"Nah," he said, "I don't care."

However, Embiid looks like he's still keeping some tabs on the NBA postseason.

And, watching from afar, he's apparently not too impressed with Aron Baynes.

If you recall, during the Eastern Conference semifinals series in which the Sixers fell to the Celtics in five games, Embiid and Baynes had their moments.

Lots of physicality. A few minor scuffles. And this monster dunk by Embiid.

That's probably what the Sixers' big man was referring to when he tweeted Monday night during Game 4 of the Cavaliers-Celtics series.

Could this play have prompted the tweet?

Baynes probably isn't focused on Embiid or Twitter right now in the heat of the Eastern Conference Finals, but maybe he'll be asked about the tweet during media availability sessions before the series goes to Game 5 Wednesday.

The 31-year-old from New Zealand, a role player not known for tons of offense but with a championship ring, can become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. We'll have to see where he plays next season, but let's hope some matchups with Embiid are in the near future.

Eagles teammates expose Nelson Agholor's golf swing

Fortunately for Nelson Agholor, he doesn't make a living off his golf swing.

Instead, he gets paid to make plays on the football field, something he did plenty of during a career year last season, helping the Eagles win their first-ever Super Bowl title.

But that didn't prevent his teammates from ribbing him Monday.

Zach Ertz and Wendell Smallwood exposed their buddy by posting videos of Agholor golfing not so well (to put it nicely) on their Instagram stories, which you can watch here.

It clearly looks like Agholor is a beginner at the sport of golf. Give him credit for trying. Known for being one of the hardest workers in the Eagles' locker room, it wouldn't be surprising to see, with time, Agholor develop that golf swing.

But for now, he's going to draw some comparisons to Charles Barkley.
