Sixers fans can breathe a sigh of relief after reported Ben Simmons-Kendall Jenner breakup

One curse down, one to go.

According to a report, Ben Simmons’ relationship with supermodel/reality star Kendall Jenner has run its course.

“She always wanted to keep her options open,” a source told E! News. “She likes Ben but she knew it was more of a summer fling. They both have busy careers and it is what it is. Kendall isn't looking for anything serious. She had fun with Ben, but wasn't ever fully committed or looking for a long-term, exclusive relationship.”

Wow. Well, they say honesty is the best policy.

The news comes after Simmons and Jenner spent the summer being spotted together across the country and even south of the border. The pair was reportedly living in an L.A. home with one another worth $25,000 a month. They also took a trip to Mexico with a fellow high-profile couple — Jenner’s sister Khloe Kardashian and Cleveland Cavaliers big man Tristan Thompson.

But all Sixers fans care about is that the Kardashian/Jenner mojo is officially off the team’s starting point guard and Rookie of the Year. There have been more than enough NBA players see their careers take a turn while dating a member of the family (James Harden, Blake Griffin, Lamar Odom, Kris Humphries … the list goes on).

Now all the Sixers need is Simmons to avoid the NBA 2K curse, which has seen three straight players featured on a version of the video game’s cover switch teams (Paul George, Kyrie Irving and LeBron James). Simmons is gracing the first-ever Australian-specific cover of NBA 2K19.

One curse at a time.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

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.
