Sonny Hill sees 'younger version of Wilt' in Joel Embiid

Sonny Hill knows a thing or two about basketball.

And the Philadelphia basketball legend sees some greatness in Joel Embiid.

A reddit user by the name of SpidermanJones posted a video of Hill from the Sixers' game on Wednesday night. Hill was asked about Embiid possessing qualities the NBA hasn't seen in sometime.

Wilt Chamberlain popped right into Hill's head.

"Younger version of Wilt," Hill said of Embiid. 

It sounded like Hill prefaced the claim by saying with development, Embiid compares to "Wilt the Stilt."

Still, that's quite the comparison.

"I've never, ever done that before," Hill said.

Sixers fans will take it.

Eagles players react to seeing Gritty for the first time

So by now, you’ve had a chance to react to Gritty, the Flyers new colorful mascot.

Chances are, you’ve got a lot of thoughts. Same.

So do the Philadelphia Eagles.

The team’s social media account posted a video on their Twitter Wednesday of the players reacting to the new mascot and heir reactions are…um, varied.

Swoop is excited, some players are confused, Brandon Graham finds it hysterical and others, like Jordan Matthews, love it. Check out the full video for yourself below.

Eagles players, they’re just like you.

Everybody loves Gritty now, right?

OK, cool.

The Gritty wave is reaching all kinds of levels now with a beer dedicated to the Flyers' new mascot, who was just introduced to the world less than 30 hours ago.

Broken Goblet Brewing, in Bristol, Pennsylvania, announced Tuesday, as we discovered on Reddit, it will release "Nightmare Fuel" on Oct. 13.

It sounds like a tasty beverage with a punch of Broad Street Bullies.

And, of course, with a ton of grit, as you can see by the image:

Here is the detailed description:

We just had to. Saturday, October 13th, we will be releasing NIGHTMARE FUEL, a lightly hopped Cream Ale brewed with vanilla and “bruised and bloodied” oranges. Resin and pine from the Chinook addition, and a touch of Saaz hops accent the sweetness of the vanilla and the tart orange in this fluffy ale. Very special limited edition crowlers will be released as well as draft. Special shout out to our friends on FB for the funny names and beer ideas! Extra special thanks to Mark Salmon who - ONCE AGAIN - comes through with the art in blazing speed.
