Get a Piece of History at Tonight's Sixers Game

A friendly reminder that if you still have the chance to get down to the Wells Fargo Center tonight to watch the Sixers take on the Golden State Warriors you should make it happen. Not only will you get to enjoy the game, but in honor of it being the 50th anniversary of the day Wilt Chamberlain scored 100 points in a single game, all fans will receive an actual piece of the hardwood court from that fateful night in Hershey on March 2, 1962. Bobbleheads are great and all, but this is truly one of the most unique giveaways we've ever seen.

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid explains the reasoning behind his new hairstyle

Joel Embiid said plenty with his words on Tuesday afternoon when he called the decision to have a minutes restriction in the teens to begin the season "f-----g BS."

He also sent a message with his fresh new look.

Jojo showed up to practice on the eve of the Sixers' season with a new hairstyle -- some cornrows remeniscent of the last great Sixer to captivate the city of Philadelphia.

No, not Andrew Bynum.

We're talking about Allen Iverson.

"I had the old hairstyle for a long time so I just wanted something new," Embiid said. "I know my mom won't be happy but it's only for a couple of days."

Robert Covington saw a resemblance, "Everybody was shocked. Told him he’s going to be the new AI.”

Was he inspired by somebody? Anybody?

"I just wanted something new, something crazy. I never do anything crazy, so..."

"I think it looks okay," Embiid, always his toughest critic, said.
