NFL players just can't get enough of the Philadelphia 76ers.
After Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper paid homage to Markelle Fultz on Thanksgiving with a one-of-a-kind celebration mimicking his poor free throw shooting, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett did a touchdown celebration today paying tribute to perhaps the most famous single step in Sixers history.
Allen Iverson's step over Tyronn Lue in the 2001 NBA Finals, to be specific.
While Lockett got to play the starring role of Iverson, his teammate David Moore played the unenviable role of Lue. It was pretty well executed with the jump shot, step and nasty look back.
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.
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.
