Philadelphia athletes react to the Patriots' Super Bowl win vs. Falcons

What a comeback by Tom Brady and the Patriots to win Super Bowl LI in overtime, 34-28, over the Falcons (see story). As usual, Philly athletes had some thoughts on the game. Here are some of the best tweets.

As always, Joel Embiid was active on Twitter.

Brian Dawkins said what we were all thinking.

Brian Westbrook reminded us that Eric Rowe now has a Super Bowl ring.

Jon Dorenbos magically appeared in Houston.

Terrell Owens has seen the greatness of Tom Brady firsthand.

But Josh Hart won the night with this tweet. Clearly, he wasn't impressed with the comeback.

JJ Redick released a 15-minute documentary chronicling his free agency experience

JJ Redick released a 15-minute documentary chronicling his free agency experience

The richest new Sixers player, JJ Redick, made his return to podcasting yesterday for the Uninterrupted.

Redick spoke at length about his unique journey through free agency and we documented many of his thoughts after he signed here, but today he released a mini documentary that follows him during the whole free agency ordeal. Perhaps to the delight of Joel Embiid fans, it's titled "The Process with JJ Redick."

It's again produced by LeBron James' media company, UNINTERRUPTED, and tracks Redick from his final game in LA, to his moving into his Brooklyn home with his wife, to chatting candidly with his agent about destinations, to finally ending up with the Sixers.

It's edited well and he speaks pretty openly about his feelings and tough decisions and how they all weigh on his family.

JJ puts a percentage on the factors that weigh into his final decision: 30% winning, 30% salary, 30% fit or enjoyment of playing, 10% looking out for his family and their lifestyle.

Sadly, the real meaty parts, like his meeting with the Sixers in Camden, aren't shown (at his request). So you don't really get a great look at those pivotal moments.

When he asks his wife to rank the cities of Brooklyn, Miami, and Philadelphia in 1-2-3 order, she responds "Brooklyn. Brooklyn. Brooklyn." (They already had a home there.)

It's a fun, quick 15 minutes. My biggest takeaway? Adidas makes some pretty sweet casual wear.

You can watch the full 15-minute mini doc below.

LeBron James suggests taking Ben Simmons out drinking

LeBron James suggests taking Ben Simmons out drinking

Turning 21 years old is a big deal!

It's such a big deal that some people don't even remember it. Ugh.

Kidding!

Anyway, Ben Simmons turned 21 years old today and to celebrate, he got a fun tweet from the greatest player in the NBA and likely future Sixer LeBron James.

The Shirley Temple line really made it. Such a nice touch and a clear affirmation that LeBron will be joining Simmons on the Sixers for the 2018-2019 season, yes?

In all seriousness this flirty little bromance between LBJ and Ben may be nothing more than good marketing from their business partners, but it's fun to joke/dream about regardless.
