Looks like we finally have that Markelle Fultz update. Well, unofficially.

Nothing from the Sixers yet, but reportedly Fultz is ramping things up:

Fultz posted on Instagram before Christmas, hinting that some news may be dropping, and this appears to be it, a bit more training and traveling with the team. Seeing him in game action is something else entirely.

Kyle posed the question after that ugly win, “how are we supposed to feel?” –

So how are we supposed to feel? Never in the history of the NFL – willing to state this as fact – have their been worse games to clinch the division and homefield advantage. Seeing booth shots of Carson Wentz last night, followed by impressive stats of his MVP-worthy campaign, just drove home the point that we may well be fucked.

DeSean Jackson is allegedly still running in the same circles with the same bad people:

Police in Tampa, Fla., are conducting an investigation after a vehicle registered to Buccaneers wide receiver DeSean Jackson was involved in a single-car accident Sunday night and a search of the car turned up marijuana and hollow-point bullets, according to a police write-up obtained by NFL.com.

Officers responded to the scene of the crash on West Shore Blvd. and found an abandoned Chevy Silverado, which appeared to have left the roadway and struck a tree, according to the report. The driver fled the scene, according to police, and officers learned the vehicle was registered to Jackson. In the car, police found 6.3 grams of marijuana and also found two .38 caliber hollow-point bullets, which are legal in Florida. Possession in Florida of less than 20 grams of marijuana is a misdemeanor. The vehicle was impounded.

Two players on the Grizz G-League team were falsely accused of theft on a plane:

American Airlines has apologized to two players on the Memphis Grizzlies’ minor league affiliate who were kicked off a plane in Dallas after a flight attendant wrongfully accused them of stealing blankets, which an assistant coach suggested happened because they are black.

Airline spokesman Joshua Freed said Tuesday that Memphis Hustle guard Marquis Teague and forward Trahson Burrell boarded the Sunday flight from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The flight was operated by Envoy Air.

Two first-class passengers gave the players their blankets as they headed to their seats in coach. But a flight attendant, who is also black, accused them of theft and the players were asked to leave the plane following an argument.
