Ethan Abrams, you're a man of your word.
As a high school freshman, Phillies prospect Mickey Moniak made a bet with his friend long before the Phillies selected him first overall last June. The bet was that if Moniak is selected within the first 10 picks of his draft, Abrams would get Moniak's signature tattooed on his rear.
And here you go:
"I thought it needed to be more than just a signature so this way it looks like he signed a ball," Abrams told CSNPhilly.com. "Also, I can play it off for other reasons why I would get a baseball tattoo on my ass. It hurt but not worse than I was expecting. I think it turned out as well as an ass tattoo can turn out."

It's a happy, happy day for Philadelphia 76ers fans.
They just selected Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft and the future is bright.
Oh, and Joel Embiid gave the squad a new nickname: the FEDS.
That's Fultz, Embiid, Dario, and Simmons. Which is probably better than FESS, which it would be if you went all last names instead of selectively choosing Dario's first name. WHO CARES LOVE THESE GUYS.
Embiid is not shy about proclaiming nicknames. He even gave himself the nickname of "THE PROCESS" and people are down with it.
Embiid can do what he wants.

And other sports figures:
It's gotta be the shoes.
(And no, not Big Baller Brand.)
Markelle Fultz represents his alma mater well with his NBA draft attire. The inside of his suit jacket pays homage to his Huskies and even includes a hashtag, F2G: Faithful to the Grind.
But Spike Lee would be happy to know Fultz's shoes are the best part of his draft-day duds.
