This is a LeBron James billboard we didn't expect

There were many things we learned watching the Philadelphia 76ers this season.

Joel Embiid can stay healthy for most of an NBA season. Marco Belinelli will take any shot, anytime, anywhere. Markelle Fultz has a shoulder. Ben Simmons can't shoot yet. Brett Brown is a heck of a guy.

And billboards are apparently pretty cheap.

Our inability to avoid talking about said billboards is about as blatant as Simmons' lack of a jumper. Ugh.

Sixers fans put up billboards. Lakers fans put up billboards. Cleveland fans put up billboards. High schools put up billboards.

Now minor-league baseball teams are putting up billboards.

It doesn't really make sense, but here we are, talking about the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. And their billboards.

If nothing else, this new billboard landed me on the Michael Jordan played minor-league baseball wikipedia page. Waste five minutes of your day and reminisce about the mediocrity from the GOAT.

And the Sixers should go after Paul George anyway.

Jon Dorenbos and Ellen have huge surprise for Eagles Autism Challenge ambassador

Former Eagles long snapper and best bud Ellen DeGeneres teamed up to make one Eagles fan's dream come true.

Ben was diagnosed with autism at the age of two and could not speak but worked hard with a speech therapist to the point where he's a big talker today. He currently works two jobs, at Olive Garden and Dorney Park, and brings smiles to customers faces.

Ben is also an ambassador for the Eagles Autism Challenge. He teamed up with Dorenbos on today's Ellen show to pull off one of Jon's famous magic tricks.

During the trick, Dorenbos surprised Ben with passes to Universal Studios as well as field access at any Eagles game of his choosing. Not to mention a generous donation to the Eagles Autism Challenge. You can learn more about that cause here.

Social media roasts Jerry Jones over Amari Cooper trade

Social media roasts Jerry Jones over Amari Cooper trade

The Cowboys really gave up a first-round pick for WR Amari Cooper today and the Internet is ripping Jerry Jones for it.

Even Cowboys fans aren’t happy about it.

At 3-4, in what seems like a wide-open NFC East, the Cowboys sacrificed an opportunity to get a major, relatively inexpensive piece in the draft next season to bring in Cooper and his hefty salary now.

Here’s what some are saying about the deal.

Football fans will remember this pick for a very long time if the player the Raiders' pick in the draft turns out to be valuable. It could come back to haunt the Cowboys.
