76ers' Matisse Thybulle tests his knowledge of Philly slang

"I've been in Philly for a minute now, and I finally think I got the slang down," Thybulle said
PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- People moving to the Philadelphia area soon realize we have our own lingo.

One local sports star seems to have done a great job learning those words and phrases that make Philly Philly (did someone say Philly Philly?).

Recently, Red Bull USA put 76ers guard Matisse Thybulle to the test.

The Arizona native, who spent time growing up in Australia, signed with Philly in 2019.

So Thybulle has had about three years to study up.
