If Joel Embiid makes the NBA All-Star Game, he'll owe some thanks to Sam Hinkie.
No, not just for Hinkie drafting him and originating "The Process," but also for his vote.
Yes, Hinkie is joining the movement. The Sixers' former president and GM casted his All-Star vote for Embiid.
How do we know? Well, from this beautiful Twitter exchange on Tuesday.
The love is real. Or shall we say the trust is real?
Embiid will always be a supporter of Hinkie, as he's expressed his love for the old boss on social media in the past.
Who knows when the two last talked. Maybe the next time will be Feb. 17-19 in New Orleans.
Because the push for Embiid has been legit. These are just some of the latest endorsements.
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Bryce Treggs made a name for himself in 2016 due to his speed. He was a fan favorite for a moment, as any deep threat tends to be, but only appeared in 9 games and registered just 3 catches.
That didn't stop him from trending on Twitter in Philly on Friday after Donald J. Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America.
Here were some of his tweets.
Philadelphia Phillies fans likely don't know a ton about one of the team's most recent pitching acquisitions, former Red Sox right-hander Clay Buccholz, but it turns out he has a unique connection to the 45th President of the United States of America.
It was Donald Trump who first introduced him to his now wife, Lindsay Clubine, at an after party of a UFC fight following a game out in California back in the late aughts.
The Boston Globe wrote about the encounter early last year.
“It was ‘Affliction: Banned’ fighting, and [Trump] owned the whole circuit," Buchholz told the Globe. "My wife knew him prior, from ‘Deal or No Deal’ when he came on the show as a celebrity banker."
“She was helping him host this event in Anaheim. So when we all walked in, he was there, and he saw us and he introduced Lindsey to me.”
Trump, of course, also has ties to a more formative New England athlete in Tom Brady who allegedly called Donald on Thursday to congratulate him on his coming inauguration.
As for Buchholz opinion on Trump? He was a big supporter during the campaign and is a fan of the former " The Apprentice" host.
“He says what a lot of people think and don’t say,” Buchholz told the Globe. “I like that part of him."
Phillies fans tend to say what they think, so he'll probably be a fan of them as well, right?
Here are some shots of the couple from their social media accounts:
