We are all very disappointed about Joel Embiid’s latest injury.  Injuries are a part of the game but I have been critical about how often Embiid hits the floor.  In Fact, among my family and friends our nickname for Embiid is the “Human Mop”.  When a 7-2 big man hits the floor with regularity, eventually he’s going to get hurt.  But to blame the NBA, the coaches, team trainers, or the player himself is ridiculous.  Most players want to play and play hard.  It’s unfortunate and counterproductive that people are wasting time on wanting to point the finger instead of figuring out what is next for the 76ers and their superstar Big Man.

Las Vegas is the site of Super Bowl LVIII and I will be traveling out the Radio Row to gather interviews.  Plus we will be broadcasting Live at LaScala’s Beach House in Brigantine on Super Bowl Sunday to get you ready for the big game! Tune in this weekend to find out how you can have Lunch with The Locker Room crew at LaScala’s next weekend!

On Saturday’s Show, my "Agent at the Beach" Mark Grimes, and Producer Nick Earnshaw join me in the studio.  We will discuss the state of the Birds with our first guest: Eagles Legend and Radio Broadcaster Mike Quick.  In Hour Two, we will talk with the Sports Book Consigliere Dave Sharapan checking in from the site of Super Bowl LVIII.  "The Book" will tell us how crazy Las Vegas is already ahead of every coming to town next week.  At 11:30 am we will hear from the Head of Sports Medicine at Virtua Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Sean McMillian on Joel Embiid’s latest knee injury. 

On Sunday’s show, The Locker Room Youth Movement is back in the studio with Producer Danny Ryan and "The Intern” Andrew Leeds debating Philly Sports.  We will recap the weekend for the Sixers plus the state of the Eagles and Flyers.  Plus learn how you can join The Locker Room crew for Lunch at LaScala’s Beach House after our Live show on Super Bowl Sunday.  If you have not checked out LaScala’s Beach House in Brigantine, you are missing out on great food, plenty of large TV's, and great views of the beach!

All that and more this weekend in The Locker Room with Billy Schweim, heard every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to Noon on 973 ESPN Radio South Jersey.
