Jahlil Okafor's dad allegedly 'HARASSED' Brett Brown in L.A.

Jahlil Okafor's dad allegedly 'HARASSED' Brett Brown in L.A.

While the Sixers may at times resemble something close to a bunch of kids out on the court this season, their fathers are apparently acting like a bunch of disgruntled little league dads.

First up, there were reports over the weekend of Jahlil Okafor's father, Chuck, heckling Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown from directly behind the team's bench during the ugly loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles.

According to Tweets from a Sixers fan living in L.A., the elder Okafor was "HARASSING" Brown and at one point around halftime Jahlil had to ask his dad to "cut it out." That's ALL CAPS harassing by the way.

That's all according to screenwriter Michael H. Weber who appears to be pals of 94 WIP's Spike Eskin.

There's also this photo of Weber with Mr. Okafor and what appears to be some anti-Hinkie sentiment.

But that wasn't the only grumbling coming out of the Sixers' parental units this weekend. According to the New York Post, Kendall Marshall's dad went on a big time rant over the weekend as well, going so far as to allege racism had something to do with his son's low minutes -- as opposed to, you know, his poor play.

Dennis Marshall alleged Kendall wasn’t seeing more court time because he was black, ripping a 76ers “shooter” who is inserted into games ahead of his son — likely Nik Stauskas.

 

“How are you a ‘shooter’ and shooting 27% from three?” he wrote, as captured by a Reddit user. Marshall’s Twitter is private. “Can’t guard but play a lot. What do you think the reason is?”

 

“I always said there was racism in sports,” he tweeted. “White guys in basketball are getting every chance to succeed even when they aren’t doing s–t.”

Much like Sixers Fans, Sixers' Dads aren't happy with the team. More so because their kids' lack of playing time than the team's awful performance on the court, it seems.

Which is totally awful, by the way.

This is obviously not the first time, and certainly won't be the last, we hear from a Sixers' parent. Add Jahlil and Kendall's dads to the Mama Iverson and Mama K.J. McDaniels of the world. 

I can't help but think about the ugly incidents Okafor found himself in earlier in the season. It's almost as if we are starting to sense where Jahlil's immaturity in the handling of those issues may have came from.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.

This little Eagles fan singing Fly Eagles Fly during bedtime will melt your heart

If the stress of the Eagles season is keeping you up at night, you’re not the only one. One little fella's parents caught him up wayyy past bedtime in the name of the Eagles.

Listen closely as Jameson Kane sings the Eagles fight song through the baby monitor on the video shared on social media by his parents, Britney and Jimmy, on Friday.

It will melt your heart.



If this doesn’t lift your spirits after a tough few weeks as an Eagles fan, then we don’t know what will.  

It turns out, Jameson’s parents might prefer to use the fight song as a lullaby instead of your classic Hush Little Baby. And we love them for it.

Through highs and lows, it looks like this little kiddo is being raised right.
