You can thank Allen Iverson in part for Joel Embiid diving into the stands

You can thank Allen Iverson in part for Joel Embiid diving into the stands

Joel Embiid's performance on Sunday in the Sixers' 108-107 win over the Brooklyn Nets was the kind of game that makes you forget about all of the other issues and simply enjoy watching a beast do work.

He really did it all. Post moves, pull ups, threes, some work on the boards. And of course diving a couple of rows deep into the stands in an attempt to keep a play alive.

It has to be a terrifying sight to see the 7-foot-2 Embiid flying in your direction. But Embiid would have it no other way. In fact, he said after the game that a certain Hall of Famer helped him develop the mindset of giving your all every single time out on the court.

"I think I stepped on his shoulder. I'm sorry for that person," Embiid said of the person he landed on.

"I'm going to give my all every time I'm out on the court. That's what I think I've been doing. Just play hard. One thing [Allen Iverson] kind of helped me with that, 'play every game like it's your last game.' And I think that's what I think I've been doing."

Brett Brown certainly sees the effort.

"I'm proud of him. I love it. I love it. After you love it, you're looking to make sure he's getting up healthy."

Watch: Adult Philly fan cheats against kids at NFL Draft Experience

I wrote an in-depth review of the NFL Draft Experience that's taking over the Parkway yesterday afternoon. It really is fun for all fans.

In it, I briefly mentioned participating in the 40-yard dash event and perhaps taking a bit of a false start against some innocent 8-year-old kids. Now there's video to prove how awful I am. You can watch that above.

Thanks to The700Level Show host Marc Farzetta, we ran through a couple of the events and they happen to have documented my atrocity against the youth of today.

I'm sorry.

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The 2017 Philadelphia Phillies look quite a bit different than the team that trotted out on the field last season.

One constant, however, is the Phillie Phanatic who brings his A-game every single year for most of our lives.

His consistency is remarkable.

Until now!

In a new promo video, the Phanatic attempts to get a makeover at the hands of shortstop and stylish dude Freddy Galvis.

The only problem is: if you're going to give the Phanatic dreadlocks -- and really, this sounds like a great idea to me -- you have to give him GREEN dreadlocks.

You'll notice they give him a 'fro at the end which is greeted with approval and it matches.
