The Sixers have agreed to send former top pick Markelle Fultz to the Orlando Magic, ending the 20-year-old's rocky tenure in Philadelphia.
I've had trouble coming up with a word or witty metaphor that best describes the last few days in the world of sports or lack thereof. Because frankly, I've never experienced anything close to it in my 22 years of sports fandom. All of sports, better yet all of society, has hit the pause button in the wake...

Childhood Attachments Confession. Perhaps my first love was Buddy Ryan. In fact the "46" in my twitter handle @jblevins46 is for the vaunted 46 defense that Buddy created for the Chicago Bears and brought to Philadelphia. The aggression, relentless pursuit of the quarterback, and the structurally unsound gambling nature of it all delighted me as a kid. It was dangerous,...
