You'll be able to tune in to NBC Sports Philadelphia (previously Comcast SportsNet) this evening to watch Joel Embiid make his preseason debut when the Sixers take on the Brooklyn Nets in Long Island.
The game was not intitially scheduled to air on television in the Philly market, but that changed midday on Wednesday after some work behind the scenes.
Philly fans voicing their opinions appears to have paid off this time.
Embiid will be available for action for the first time since inking his lucrative contract extension while Markelle Fultz will be unavailable due to knee soreness.
In addition to being broadcast on NBCSP, fans can stream the game live on the web right here.
Tip off is scheduled for shortly after 7:30 pm this evening. Follow NBC Sports Philadelphia's Sixers Insider Jessica Camerato for more from Long Island.
Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.
He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.
So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.
"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."
"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"
"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.
Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.
The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.
We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.
Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.
"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."
But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.
"They deserve love," Cowherd said.
Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
