Video: With Jerry Springer in Attendance, Carmelo Anthony Gets Slap Happy with Spencer Hawes

It's been a rough couple of weeks for the Sixers and they had a weekend to match. After getting beat up on by the Miami Heat on Saturday night in Philadelphia, the Sixers had their hands full with the New York Knicks on Sunday night at the Garden. They got off to an ugly start but eventually fought back just enough to make the score look respectable.

Spencer Hawes was at the center of the action yet again, but this time he seemingly didn't really do anything to warrant the attention. On what looked like a routine box-out on Carmelo Anthony under the basket, Melo reacted with a pretty egregious slap to Hawes' head. Maybe he saw Jerry Springer sitting court-side at the Garden. He would later say he caught a 'bow from Hawes which he was simply reacting to. I didn't really see said elbow.

Melo was initially just called for a personal foul but it was later upgraded to a Flagrant 1. I wouldn't be surprised if the League reviews it further and gives him a Flagrant 2 and a game suspension. Then again, he's a superstar, so that's probably unlikely.

After the game Spencer said the commotion got him going.

“That kind of [expletive] gets me going,” Hawes said. “That’s what I like and it gets like that sometimes.”

It didn't get him going quite enough, as the Sixers lost yet again.

It was a busy weekend for Hawes' highlight reel. On Saturday he had a rather legendary swat of LeBron James. Hey, with this team, we've got to enjoy the little things.

There's a Chance a change could be coming for Eagles at left guard

On Monday, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said he didn't want to "push any panic buttons" because of his offensive line. 

Turns out, he might be ready to. 

During the portion of Wednesday's practice that is open to reporters, Chance Warmack took first-team left guard reps between Jason Peters and Jason Kelce during individual drills. Isaac Seumalo was no longer working with the first team. It could possibly be a sign of things to come. 

The team portion of practice is closed to media members. 

Seumalo, the second-year offensive lineman out of Oregon State, had a terrible game against the Chiefs on Sunday. He gave up four of the six sacks the Eagles allowed and three of them went to defensive end Chris Jones, who was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Week. 

Seumalo, 23, admitted after the 27-20 loss Sunday that he needed to play better (see story). Meanwhile, Pederson pointed out some of Seumalo's issues — dropping his head, late hands, getting off the ball late — but said they were correctable. 

"So we'll evaluate the whole thing," Pederson continued Wednesday after saying he didn't want to push panic buttons. "It's not — again, it's not just one guy. If you're going to point the finger too, you can point it at me; I'm part of the pie, too. We'll evaluate it and we'll keep evaluating it."

Seumalo was handed the starting left guard job at the start of this training camp. The team decided that and was set to release veteran, and previous starter, Allen Barbre until they were able to get a conditional seventh-round pick for him. Looking back, they might have made that move too hastily. 

For the first two games of the season, Warmack has been inactive. It's the first time in his NFL career that he's been healthy and hasn't played. The former 10th overall pick joined the Eagles this offseason on a one-year deal but has since signed an extension to keep him under contract through the 2018 season. Warmack, after the first game of the season, said he was trying not to read into anything (see story)

In Philadelphia, Warmack has been reunited with his college position coach Jeff Stoutland. That was a big part of the reason he decided to join the Eagles. 

In addition to Warmack, the Eagles also have veteran Stefen Wisniewski available to play guard.
