Joel Embiid really wants Ben Simmons to dunk all over Lonzo Ball

Joel Embiid really wants Ben Simmons to dunk all over Lonzo Ball

LaVar Ball can evoke strong emotions from just about anyone.

He had Ben Simmons' sister, Olivia, all worked up in May.

And he got Simmons and Joel Embiid going on draft night Thursday.

LaVar was back at it — to no surprise — after his son, Lonzo, was drafted No. 2 overall by his hometown Los Angeles Lakers.

Here's what LaVar was blabbering about.

Simmons and Embiid were clearly listening.

This was Simmons' tweet, presumably referring to LaVar.

Embiid was just a tad more descriptive and honest. That's what Philly loves about him.

The NBA schedule is typically released in early August. Safe to say many will be circling the Sixers' first matchup with the Lakers on their calendar — especially Embiid and Olivia.

Internet sleuths uncover Doug Pederson cameo in 2008 movie

Before Doug Pederson was an underdog, he was a longshot.

Thanks to some super sleuthing from some folks on Reddit, specifically u/nosefinger1, it has been uncovered that Doug Pederson and his Calvary Baptist Academy football team made a brief appearance in the movie “The Longshots.” 

Since we don’t condone piracy, here are some screenshots.

That has to be Doug, right? If you needed more proof, u/dr_rex uncovered some more info.

The movie, starring Ice Cube and directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, came out in 2008 and was a pretty significant box office flop. Perhaps they could have given the future Super Bowl-winning head coach a bigger role.
