    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia 76ers have had a difficult time trying to deal All-Star guard Ben Simmons, but a new report could change that. On Monday, The Athletic reported that Portland Trail Blazers superstar guard Damian Lillard would like to play with Simmons following the team firing general manager Neil Olshey. Inside Portland’s firing of longtime GM Neil Olshey and what comes next with the Trail Blazers and franchise cornerstone Damian Lillard — at @TheAthletic with @sam_amick: https://t.co/xblo7PDaAG — Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) December 6, 2021 Here’s part of the story from The Athletic:  “Lillard intends to give the Trail Blazers organization time to find its next leader of basketball operations. But beyond the front office component, the face of the franchise still wants significant changes to the roster. Multiple sources have told The Athletic that Lillard would like to play with Philadelphia 76ers three-time All-Star Ben Simmons. The Trail Blazers’ league-worst defense would instantly improve, and sharing a backcourt with a non-shooter could work given Lillard’s high-volume usage.” READ MORE: Biden Administration Enacts New Travel Rules...

    Gardner Minshew stepped in for the Eagles at quarterback and led them to a win. His celebration with his dad after the victory was completely awesome.  On Saturday, reports indicated that Philadelphia Eagles starter Jalen Hurts would not play this weekend due to a sore ankle.

    Billionaire donor George Soros, who has been quietly pumping millions into the campaigns of Democratic District Attorneys across the country Billionaire Democrat donor George Soros has bankrolled District Attorneys in America's most crime ravaged cities, where criminals are being allowed to walk out of jail on low cash bonds or aren't even being charged.  Soros, the most prolific Democratic donor, is most known for giving to Presidents Clinton and Obama but he has also been pumping money into a far-left effort to overhaul the criminal justice system by giving millions to a network of woke prosecutors in Democratic races.   Among them is Kim Foxx, the State's Attorney for Cook County, Chicago, where murder is at its highest in nearly 30 years.  In 2020, Soros donated $2million to a PAC that backed Foxx in her re-election campaign. She won the race and has since offered deferred prosecutions and softball deals to criminals.  In 2021, there were more murders in Chicago than in any other year since 1994.  RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Nigerian brother who Jussie Smollett...
    The Pennsylvania SPCA is looking for the public's help identifying the person or persons responsible for fatally shooting two stray cats in South Philadelphia.  The bodies of the cats were discovered by a caretaker of a feral cat colony at Pier 80 on the Delaware waterfront, who notified the SPCA, the organization said in a Thursday release. "The colony caretakers were suspicious as both cats had been otherwise healthy and vaccinated against common environmental illnesses," the PSPCA said. The cats were discovered right next to another feral cat colony that had been the site of several arson attempts in 2017, according to the organization. The cats were taken to the PSPCA’s Philadelphia headquarters by an officer, where they underwent necropsies to confirm their cause of death and collect evidence, the organization said. Bullets were found in both cats, and are being sent for further processing through the Philadelphia Police Department. Information about the identity of the individual, or others involved, can be reported anonymously to the Pennsylvania SPCA’s cruelty hotline, 866-601-7722 or cruelty@pspca.org. “These acts of cruelty are especially monstrous,” Julie Klim, CEO...
    Two men shot a teenager more than a dozen times Monday evening while waiting for a bus, according to authorities. Samir Jefferson, 14, was taken to Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia after medics found the teenager hit with at least 18 bullets, 6abc reported.

    A Philadelphia man was cited for bringing a loaded revolver to the Philadelphia International airport on Friday, according to the Transportation Security Administration. The unidentified man, who was carrying a .38 caliber handgun loaded with five bullets, was stopped while going through an x-ray machine at a security checkpoint, according to a release by the TSA. The man’s weapon was confiscated, he was cited by Philadelphia police, and faces a “stiff federal financial civil penalty for carrying his loaded gun to a TSA security checkpoint,” according to the release. “This man told us that he did not know that he had to check his gun with the airline for transport,” said Gerardo Spero, TSA’s Federal Security Director for the airport. Guns can be transported for flights if they are properly registered, declared, unloaded and stored, full details are available on the TSA website.
    The Philadelphia Eagles may not have Jalen Hurts available to play vs. the New York Jets. After falling to the division rival New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles could be without starting quarterback Jalen Hurts vs. the New York Jets. Hurts hurt his ankle in the brutal 13-7 defeat to the Giants. This was a game The Birds had to have if they wanted to seriously contend for an NFC playoff spot. While there is still time to lock up a top-seven seed in the conference, losing a dud like that to a Giants team that is going nowhere is absolutely awful. The only thing that would make things worse is somehow losing to Gang Green. If Hurts cannot play vs. the Jets on Sunday, that means Gardner Minshew will make his first start. Eagles’ HC Nick Sirianni said today that QB Jalen Hurts is nursing a sore ankle he suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Giants. It could impact Hurts’ availability for Sunday vs. Jets, with the Eagles on their bye the following week. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 29,...

    Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports Through a quarter season of play, trends have begun to materialize across the league. We’re taking a look at whether these early season indicators are real or fake, and where we expect them to settle over the remainder of the season.5. Philadelphia’s superb offense: Real or fake?The 76ers experience is sure to be a rollercoaster through the remainder of the calendar year, if not the entire season. There are more questions than answers with this Philadelphia team. Will Ben Simmons play actual minutes in a Sixer uniform? Can Philadelphia make a legitimate run without either him or a 70-cents-on-the-dollar return? Can Joel Embiid stay healthy enough to play in 60 or more games? So far, they’ve performed superbly as the league’s second-best offense. Even with Embiid sidelined for eight of their 17 games thus far, the Sixers have surpassed even the most bullish preseason projections. The question is not whether Philadelphia will be able to sustain the second-best offensive rate — there’s a minute chance of this materializing over 82 games even with a completely healthy roster...

                        State Rep. Regina Young (D-PA-Philadelphia) voted with all Republican House State Government Committee members this week in favor of a bill to require post-election audits.  The legislation to verify the accuracy of election outcomes will thus go before the full Pennsylvania House with at least a modicum of bipartisanship, making it more difficult for Democrats to call the bill merely “a reactionary thing being done because of the last election,” as Rep. Malcolm Kenyatta (D-Philadelphia) did at the committee meeting. Young could not be reached for comment. The audit bill, sponsored by Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster), would create a Bureau of Election Audits within the Auditor General’s office and instruct that new division to analyze the vote tabulation after each election to ensure it is correct. This would come in addition to county election boards’ responsibility to examine their vote tabulations for accuracy. Cutler stated the new bureau’s annual cost will be approximately $3.1 million.  “We should not allow individual entities in government to self-audit,” Cutler said in committee...
    Hopi at crossroads of maintaining language for elected posts Sununu announcement hands Democrats lifeline The Celtics, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic, are interested in Ben Simmons with the 76ers seeking Jaylen Brown in return. © Provided by NBC Sports Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald: Per league source: Report of Celtics discussing trade with Philadelphia for Ben Simmons is "untrue." — Mark Murphy (@Murf56) November 8, 2021 Brian Robb of MassLive: Multiple league sources were adamant to MassLive.com that the Celtics have no interest in moving the All-Star Brown in the interim Why wouldn’t the Celtics be interested in Simmons? He’s a highly productive young player whose defense would fit their desired identity and whose passing would be welcome. But interested enough to meet Philadelphia’s high asking price? Probably not.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Ben Simmons saga has cooled off as of late, but a new bombshell dropped Monday involving the Sixers’ most hated rival. The Sixers have engaged in conversations with the Boston Celtics revolving around Simmons, according to The Athletic. “The Boston Celtics have engaged in conversations with the 76ers revolving around Simmons and expressed interest in the 6-foot-11 guard, sources tell The Athletic. Talks have been fluid with no traction as of yet, those sources say. Any potential Simmons deal with the Celtics would have to include All-Star forward Jaylen Brown, an ascending talent who is in the midst of another career season, averaging 25.6 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists.” While The Athletic notes that there’s been no traction as of yet, Sixers fans should continue to monitor the situation unfolding in Boston, especially if it leads to Jaylen Brown landing in Philadelphia.

The franchise has sought further details but Simmons must consent due to patient confidentiality.  The...

First-year coach Dan Campbell, a former Detroit tight end, doesn’t blame them. “When you don’t win a game and you’re 0-8 and you’ve lost at home, I’m not going to be upset with that,” Campbell said Monday. “I understand and my job is to try to find a way to help us win so that they want to come watch a winning product.” The Lions announced a crowd of 47,192 on Sunday, when they were thoroughly dominated by the Philadelphia Eagles 44-6. It was clear that a lot of people with tickets chose not to use their tickets or could not get rid of them because there were many rows throughout the stadium with unoccupied seats.

    Philadelphia will equip all its police officers with Taser guns which officers will be trained with and required to use on the job.  The move will cost $14 million and was announced on Tuesday, which marked the one-year anniversary of the police killing of Walter Wallace Jr., a 27-year-old Black man who was shot while he was undergoing a mental health crisis, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.  Five months after the police killing of George Floyd, Wallace, who was holding a knife, was killed when white police officers shot him 14 times.
