Embiid posts photo with Fultz, who already trusts the process

The Process appeared to reach its next stage on Saturday evening.

Markelle Fultz worked out with the Sixers on Saturday amid reports that the Sixers are close to trading up to the No. 1 pick in order to select him. 

As he worked out at the Sixers' practice facility in Camden, looking on were multiple potential future teammates, namely Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Robert Covington. After practice, the trio spoke with Fultz before posing for a photo which sent the internet into a frenzy.

On Instagram, Fultz showed that he's already on board, commenting on Embiid's post with the customary response: "Trust the process."

 

Sports Illustrated thought of the foursome as a potential band, prompting some interesting responses.

If the Sixers do end up trading up and selecting Fultz, that group alongside Dario Saric could be lethal on the court. And if they're anything like the current crop of NBA stars, a turn behind a microphone isn't out of the question!

Lincoln Financial Field's chicken sandwich voted 'Craziest Stadium Food'

Think the food at your tailgate is good? Maybe you should save some room for what For The Win has dubbed the ‘Craziest Stadium Food’ for the 2017 season.

The USA Today sports blog, in what looks like a coordinated effort with concessions provider Aramark, ranked the top-10 craziest stadium foods of 2017 and the “slim chicken” at Lincoln Financial Field earned the top spot.

We’re not sure if this is a sandwich, breakfast food or dessert because the slim chicken is a Frosted Flakes-crusted chicken breast with sharp cheddar cheese and ghost chili honey glazed bacon on a sliced apple fritter.

There’s so much to consider here. This menu item includes every aspect of the food pyramid as the apple fritter hits the fruits and veggies and grains and the chicken, bacon and cheese have you covered for dairy and meat. It’s basically a health food, all things considered.

Given the new Chick-Fil-A stand that is inside the Atlanta Falcons new stadium, which will only be open for one of their home games, it’s nice to see the Eagles bringing a chicken sandwich that you can enjoy at every single game this season to the table.

Jimmy Rollins has the house to beat in the East … and it can be yours

Jimmy Rollins has the house to beat in the East … and it can be yours

I guess if you were a member of the 2008 Phillies, it’s the summer to sell your house. Yesterday, we featured Cole Hamels' absolutely insane 10-bedroom Missouri mega-mansion, and today, it’s longtime Phillie and 2007 MLB MVP Jimmy Rollins, who recently put his Swedesboro, New Jersey, estate up for sale.

Rollins, who saw his 17-year career likely come to a close after a failed stint in Spring Training with the San Francisco Giants earlier this season, listed his five-bedroom, 3.5 bath house less than a month ago for $799,000, the same exact price he bought it for.

According to Realtor.com, Rollins moved into the home in 2005, well before he earned the vast majority of the near $100 million he would pull in during his career.

Especially for the price, roughly $9 million less than Hamels’ crib, this house is pretty sweet. It sits on 2.58 acres of land and is a total of 5,292 square feet. In addition to the eat-in kitchen and massive walk-in closets, the best part of this house has to be the backyard, which includes a pool with hot tub and a waterfall.

Other features of Rollins’ house include a detached three-car garage, a full finished basement, poker room and gym.

Here’s the entire listing, complete with photos and information.
