The vacant Philadelphia 76ers president of basketball operations job is reportedly a coveted position.

As Jenna West of Sports Illustrated shared, cheap authentic nfl jerseys from china ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski appeared on SportsCenter and said as much.

“What I heard around the league today were a lot of very good general managers in a lot of very good jobs [were] kind of looking at their contracts and hitting their agents going, ‘Is there a way I could get out to get involved in that?'” Wojnarowski said. “Everybody wants the Sixers job.”

This comes after the 76ers announced Bryan Colangelo resigned as president of basketball operations following an investigation into the use of burner Twitter accounts. Head coach Brett Brown will take over in an interim role.nfl authentic jersey

Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports reported the law firm the 76ers hired to conduct the investigation connected the accounts to Colangelo’s wife, who then admitted to creating and using them.

Colangelo denied knowledge of his wife operating the accounts in a statement he released Thursday, via Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times. However, Wojnarowski said in his SportsCenter appearance that most people “inside or outside of the Sixers organization” believe Colangelo was at least aware of the accounts.

This story first came to light when Ben Detrick of The Ringer published an extensive investigation into five Twitter accounts connected to Colangelo that were used to criticize players, coaches and his predecessor, Sam Hinkie.official cheap nfl jerseys

Notable players such as Joel Embiid, Markelle Fultz, Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor were scorned by the Twitter accounts, and one even said a failed physical from Okafor nullified a trade.

Despite the headlines the Colangelo story made, Philadelphia is still in an ideal position to compete in the Eastern Conference and an enticing landing spot for general managers. The team was 52-30 and reached the second round of the playoffs this women nfl jerseys past season and features building blocks in Embiid and Ben Simmons to go with talented role players.

With this competitive window now wide open following years of accumulating assets and acquiring young talent, the Sixers could also seize the opportunity to make a serious run at marquee free agents this offseason such as LeBron James.

Considering the talent in place and the bright future ahead, it is no surprise so many want to take over for the departed Colangelo.

There Are No Losers in the Capitals’ Stanley Cup Victory over the Golden Knights

For so many years, the Washington Capitals seemed to hold the winning hand. So many years, they had dominant teams, Presidents’ Trophy teams, teams holding a 20 at the blackjack table, only to see the house win at the last second.nfl jerseys authentic

It all changed in Las Vegas on Thursday night against the franchise playing with the ultimate house money. The Capitals—the Capitals—who still hold the dubious distinction of having one of the worst squads in pro sports history, in their expansion season, are the Stanley Cup champions after defeating the Vegas Golden Knights 4-3 in Game 5. The Caps beat an expansion team in the Cup Final in its inaugural season.nfl jerseys cheap collection

You can’t make this stuff up.cheap womens nfl jerseys

Forty-four years after entering the NHL and compiling an 8-67-5 record in that 1974-75 season, the Caps are champions of the world. The Vegas fans? Well, there’s always next year and plenty more to come after that.

Vegas couldn’t lose, no matter what happened in this series. It remains one of pro sports’ most unbelievable stories, starting the year with 500-1 odds from the Las Vegas Superbook to win the title. It was preposterous enough for an expansion team to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final. It was another thing entirely that a team from Las Vegas did it. The most far-fetched fantasy show on The Strip couldn’t compete with that.official nfl jersey

The city of Las Vegas is still considering throwing a parade for its Golden Knights. And, it should. They might not get the Hollywood movie made about them now, but they’re still big winners and were an inspiration to the community after tragedy struck the city early in the season.nfl womens jerseys cheap

The biggest winners, of course, are those hardcore Capitals fans who stayed with them all the way through that first year. And, there are plenty of them.

The Caps enjoyed periods of success in the ’80s and ’90s, even making it to their only previous Stanley Cup Final in 1998, only to be swept by the Detroit Red Wings. Then, after a few mediocre seasons, they got Alexander Ovechkin with the first pick of the 2004 NHL draft, and by 2008-09, the Caps were a 50-win team.
