Jimmy Butler's ex-teammate jokes about his locker

Jimmy Butler's ex-teammate jokes about his locker

Everyone saw Jimmy Butler and Allen Iverson’s iconic embrace on the court last night. You might have also seen the two swapping jerseys in the locker room, but what you might not have noticed, one of Butler’s old teammates is pointing out.

Butler posted this photo to his Instagram last night and Cole Aldrich, who played with Butler during his time in Minnesota, commented “You’ve been there 4 days why is your locker so dirty? #answerthat”

As you can see, the locker on the right is just filled with stuff. There’s shoes, a coffee cup, what looks like more than one wallet (must be nice), a plastic bag and let’s be honest, probably some keys to a minivan.

We’re going to have to stick up for our guy, though. While he has only been in town for a short period of time, he hasn’t be able to get settled and set everything up. He dropped all his bags, hit a game winner in Charlotte and has not only embraced the city and their fans, but also the Here Come the Sixers song.

You do you, Jimmy. Take your time getting your locker set up and block out all the haters.

Nobody knows where Villanova is located

The year of 2018 is winding down and coming to a close and with it comes the annual year-end lists.

It was a big year for the city of Philadelphia. The Eagles won the Super Bowl. Gritty came into this world like a wrecking ball. GQ named us the city of the year.

Oh, and the Villanova Wildcats won the NCAA national championship.

Where is Villanova anyway? Is it in Philadelphia?

Apparently, a ton of people have no idea.

Google shared its search trends in the United States for 2018 and the No. 1 search for "where is ________?" You guessed it: Villanova University.

There were a couple of other Philly-related searches that came up a lot. Nick Foles was the seventh-most searched for athlete behind Tristan Thompson, Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, Le'Veon Bell, Kawhi Leonard, and Dez Bryant.

In terms of sports team searches, the Eagles were searched for the third most behind the Cavaliers and Red Sox.

Surely, Gritty would have popped up on these lists somewhere, right? We couldn't find him in any of the lists but he did have at least one day of widespread fame back in September:

You can see what other sorts of things people were searching for in 2018 on Google right here.

Sixers to wear a new white 'Earned Edition' jersey on Christmas in Boston

Sixers to wear a new white 'Earned Edition' jersey on Christmas in Boston

Philadelphia fans won't just be dreaming of a white Christmas this year, they'll get to see white on the court when the Sixers take on the Celtics up in Boston on Dec. 25.

According to Sixers president Chris Heck, he strongly hinted in a tweet that the team will wear a white Earned Edition uniform made by Nike on Christmas Day.

For those unfamiliar with the Earned Edition unis, the NBA is rewarding teams who made the playoffs the previous season with a one-off variation of the City or Statement Edition jerseys as part of the Nike NBA Earned Program.

The white uniforms that Heck showed off Wednesday very much resemble the team's City Edition grey look, which we were big fans of.

The Sixers travel to Boston to play at 5:30 p.m. on Christmas in a rematch of last season's tough playoff matchup. The Sixers, of course, have a new high-powered edition to their lineup in Jimmy Butler, who could help to deliver a win to all of the boys and girls in the Delaware Valley.

Here's a look at the white uniforms as well as some of the other Earned jerseys from around the league.
