Nothing says romance like Philly sports, am I right?!?
We still get teary-eyed every time some dude proposes to his special lady on the jumbotron at Citizens Bank Park. Mostly out of rage. So it's no surprise the local sports teams in Philadelphia celebrated Valentine's Day on social media in the most pun-filled of ways.
The Flyers seem to reaaaallly like doing this. The Sixers are pretty close but maybe put in about half the time. The Eagles and Phillies just felt like they had to show up.
The team doctor's aren't so sure. Joel is currently listed as doubtful for both of the Sixers games this weekend.
But that didn't stop JoJo from talking some smack with one of his favorite teammates, Dario Saric, while battling in a little one-on-one after practice.
Embiid was seen by reporters using some colorful language directed in Saric's direction, screaming "you can't ****-ing guard me!" while the two went at it.
The chatter didn't stop there. Embiid was later asked about the one-on-one and unleashed a little more on Dario.
"He don't like playing me," Embiid said. "He never wins and he doesn't handle me talking trash to him. I would love to play against him all the time because that gives me a lot of confidence beating him every day."
"It's fun playing against him. We both like to compete."
"That's my guy," he added.
And Sixers fans love them both. Let's just hope to see more of them teaming up in actual games soon.
