WOWOWOWO!  It’s a little sad the Sixers won’t be at the Wells Fargo Center anymore, and all the sports teams won’t be in the same space, but this is awesome for Center City and it’s going to be gorgeous!  It also might mean that Philly will get the NBA All Star Game!  It’s also important to note, this is privately funded.

The development will be completed in time for the 2031-2032 NBA season. Ground-breaking for the proposed  project is not expected for several years. The general public and fans can stay up to date on the progress of the development project by visiting

Here are the details:  Josh Harris and David Blitzer, Managing Partners of the Philadelphia 76ers, announced today the creation of a new development company, 76 Devcorp, responsible for developing the future home of the Philadelphia 76ers. Led by Philadelphia business leader David Adelman, in partnership with Harris Blitzer Sports Entertainment (HBSE), the Development Corporation is pursuing a privately-funded, purpose-built sports and entertainment arena, 76 Place, that will be located on a portion of the current site of Fashion District Philadelphia and serve as an anchor to Center City.

Joel Embiid Dances the Hora & Chair Dance

Joel Embiid has moves on the court AND the dance floor!  The Philadelphia 76er had one hell of a year, but this weekend he was looking good and feeling good as he tore it up at a wedding.

This isn’t the first time Embiid partied like a star: rock, rap, or otherwise. Earlier this year he was spotted (he’s not difficult to find in a crowd) with James Harden, new teammate P.J. Tucker, and Meek Mill at a party held by Michael Rubin in the Hamptons. Thank you, NBC 10’s John Clark for the footage.

Let’s be honest. You can’t get mad when you invite a 7-foot tall professional athlete to a wedding and all eyes are on him. It comes with the territory, right? Especially when he’s being held in the air on a chair WITH ANOTHER GUEST! I can’t help but wonder who else was on that guest list strong enough to hoist the 280-pound giant above their heads. But it sure looked like they were having fun!
