Eytan Shander: If Segura can give up whiskey, Phillies fans can give up booing (at least for a little)

You are still an idiot if you booed Gabe Kapler before his first home game.

Eytan Shander: Joel Embiid's latest antics are about wanting attention, not forcing a trade

Can it be that it was all so simple? Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Brett Brown, and a mixture of draft picks and veterans all on the same page with the same vision. Before we go any further, we have to be 100 percent honest with ourselves. Over the last six years, no star – or mid – athlete in this city has gotten a bigger pass/more patience from the fans than Embiid. That is not a bad thing. But it does help to explain the process of pure love for this man breaking down in front of our eyes.

Eytan Shander: Here's why the Sixers should stand pat at the NBA trade deadline

This might be the most straightforward column I’ll write here. The Sixers don’t have the assets to trade their way out of a suspect season. That’s the biggest hindrance working against the team.

Eytan Shander: Kobe Bryant's death was different, and the same, for everyone

Sometimes it takes a loss of such magnitude, one that resonates with people from young to old, a true motivator who accomplished everything in their industry, to keep us all honest. No matter how many walls we put up - how often we “play” another person online or in real life - there are few things like death where no matter the social or celebrity status, we can all unify in remembrance. But herein also lies the inner contrast of coping with death, especially a tragic one.

Why should fans pretend to care about cheating when it clearly doesn’t impact our viewing and betting habits?

Eytan Shander: It's time for the Sixers to send a message — by firing Brett Brown

I don’t want to see Brett Brown fired. I didn’t want to see it happen last year either, but there comes a time when a new message is needed.

After overachieving, despite our collective despair at several points during the season, it's time we apologize to several members of the Philadelphia Eagles.
