Hilarious: Watch Nick Young crash his toboggan while riding the Great Wall of China

Hilarious: Watch Nick Young crash his toboggan while riding the Great Wall of China

There is a Swag-sized hole in our hearts now that Nick Young is no longer a member of the 76ers.

Young was replaced in the offseason by cheaper -- presumably better -- talent, but no combination of promising rookie pieces can be as horrifyingly entertaining as Swaggy jacking 30-footers.

Now a member of his hometown Lakers, Young and his teammates are currently in China, prepping for two preseason games with the Warriors in Shanghai and Beijing.

I didn't know this, but apparently tobogganing down from the Great Wall is a thing. Chris Kaman injured his finger when he refused to break. And courtesy of Jordan Farmar's instagram account (via PBT), we have this video of Young's own crash:

If you couldn't quite make that out, it was:

"WE GOIN' DOWN A SLIIIIIIDE. WE GOIN' DOWN A SLIIIIDE. THE SLIIIIIDE. THE GREAT WALL OF -- OH SHIT"

Miss you, Swaggy. Miss you every day.

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

T.J. McConnell (wrist) in a splint, doubtful to play for Sixers Wednesday

Sixers point guard T.J. McConnell is doubtful for Wednesday's home game against the Raptors with a right wrist sprain.

McConnell was in a splint at practice Tuesday and said he would try to play but would leave it up to the medical staff.

McConnell is averaging 4.8 points and 5.4 assists in 38 games. The Sixers went 5-2 in the last seven games he started before his injury, and won 113-104 in Milwaukee without him. Sergio Rodriguez started at PG in McConnell's place and had 10 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists. Chasson Randle backed up the point and had 10 points and a pair of threes.

Big men update
Joel Embiid did not practice Tuesday and is listed as probable for Wednesday night when the Sixers (13-26) host the Raptors (27-13).

“Joel Embiid ... was a little bit, had the flu,” Brett Brown said.

Brown also added that he does not think Embiid's minutes limit will increase beyond 28 this season.

Jahlil Okafor (probable) did not participate in practice and received treatment. Brown said Okafor had soreness. Gerald Henderson is also probable and had an individualized workout Tuesday.

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

Wayne Simmonds gets engaged during Flyers' bye week

So far, 2017 has been a pretty big year for Wayne Simmonds.
 
In addition to being named to his first All-Star team this year, Simmonds clearly had big plans on how to spend his bye week away from hockey, before returning to play the New Jersey Devils on Saturday. He popped the question to his girlfriend, Crystal Corey, and she said yes.
 
Simmonds announced the engagement on his Instagram.

11,700 feet and she said YES! I Love you @cryscorey 💛#SimmondsandSimmonds

It could be good news for the Flyers, too. Simmonds is the second Flyer to get engaged this season after Claude Giroux popped the question in December after winning three in a row. The Flyers made the winning streak an even 10 after. Congratulations, Wayne!
