The Wells Fargo Center will undergo a massive redesign in the coming years in hopes of making game day and concert-going experiences vastly improved for fans.
76ers star center Joel Embiid would have preferred they simply start anew.
Gotta respect his honesty.
The Center, which opened in 1996, will undergo a multi-phase redesign that will cost roughly $250 million and include the following, per a release:
Multifunctional, open-concept concourses featuring views of Philadelphia’s skyline
Over 150 new LED game-action screens, menu boards and illumination technology delivering a complete visual transformation
8,000 brand new seats featuring cup holders
Expanded Food and Beverage Locations and Offerings
In addition to more social spaces, the Center will also get a brand new state of the art sound system and more than 10,000 incremental square feet of LED displays.
"Our guests have unlimited entertainment options at their fingertips,” President of the Wells Fargo Center John Page said in the release. "We’ve designed this next phase of the Wells Fargo Center to promote more social gathering inside the arena, and enhanced technology offerings that improve the overall experience."
The redesigned mezzanine level is scheduled to be completed by fall of 2018 with additional changes to follow.
Trust the process?
How about trust the haircut?

Who wouldn't want Embiid's face depicted in their hair? After all, the playoff push is heating up, so you've got to look ready.
Over 100 barbers from the Delaware Valley were expected on hand for the evening and pregame networking event, which was all presented by Maestro's Classic.
Don't be surprised if the Embiid cut catches on throughout the city.
No doubt, you'll be the coolest kid at school (or work).
Daryl Worley was introduced to Philadelphia on Monday at a press conference at the NovaCare Complex and he showed up in style.
The newest member of the Eagles' cornerback crew was rocking some high fashion Gucci sneakers with a little bit of a ... hairy accent. You can own your very own pair for a cool $830.
If you're curious on what to wear these sneaks with, Net-a-porter has you covered:
When Alessandro Michele stepped in as Gucci's Creative Director in Fall '15, his shearling-lined shoes were part of the movement that ushered in a new relaxed era for the label - these 'Ace' sneakers are a cool, sporty take on the now iconic style. Made in Italy from pristine white leather, they have the instantly recognizable navy and red webbing that's embroidered with a gold bee, representing abundance, love and community. Wear them with cuffed denim or a midi dress.
It may not surprise you at all that a guy with this kind of flair had a somewhat curious answer when asked who his favorite Eagle of all-time was.
His answer? Terrell Owens. [insert thinking-face emoji]
