The Philadelphia 76ers have just opened a new, state-of-the-art practice facility, and maybe the coolest part is a unique touch that nods to one of the iconic moments in the history of Philadelphia basketball. The reception desk in the lobby of the building is made out of hardwood, but not just any hardwood — it’s a part of the court from Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game on March 2, 1962.
When Chamberlain scored 100 points, it was for the Philadelphia Warriors, not the 76ers, but it’s still a piece of the city’s sports history, and this is a cool, unique way to honor it.

The rapper’s car was struck by another vehicle while headed southbound on Interstate 285 in Georgia.
The Atlanta native, born Carlos Walker, was one of the founding members of the group D4L.
What if you were on top of your game in music and Eminem and Pitbull handed you their mixtapes before they were big, and you ignored them? Well, that’s what happened to Fat Joe at the height of his career. The rapper says he regrets overlooking them and tells DJ Vlad that he never hears the end of it from Pitbull and says Em still remembers every city he’s handed his music to him.
Nelly fans are streaming the 2002 hit about stripping down in the heat as a way to help the rapper make some extra money, and are encouraging others to do the same on social media. The idea originated with a SPIN magazine story claiming the hit song would need to be streamed 287 million times in order to pay down a hefty IRS bill reported byTMZ.

Central Michigan at Oklahoma State might already have the ending of the year after a 4th and long throw to nobody by Oklahoma State was called intentional grounding, Central Michigan got one more long shot and former CMU alumni Thunder Dan Marjele they nailed it!
Down by as much as 22 points in the 1st half and down 13 at halftime, the #4 ranked Florida State Seminoles were looking dead in the water and completely overmatched by the #11 ranked Ole Miss Rebels on Monday night.
Former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who was on the sidelines for the game, wasn’t having none of this nonsense he was seeing. So he delivered an inspirational and fiery halftime speech to the team.
Wednesday was a big day for Kanye West and G.O.O.D. Music. It began with Kanye livestreaming his Yeezy Season 4 fashion show during New York Fashion Show and ended with a pop-up show at Highline Ballroom featuring a number of acts from the roster. G.O.O.D. Music president Pusha T was in the building, along with Desiigner, Teyana Taylor, and of course ‘Ye, who introduced Tyga as the newest member of G.O.O.D. Music.
Tyga has close ties to Kanye on a personal level—the Kylie Jenner and Kim Kardashian connection, obviously—but also on a musical level as Tyga said ‘Ye executive produced his 2015 album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty. That project was released independently on Tyga’s Last Kings label after he severed ties with YMCMB. For what it’s worth, Tyga is still listed as an artist on the official Young Money and Cash Moneywebsites, respectively, and it’s been like that for some time.
Along with Tyga’s new alignment with G.O.O.D. Music, Pusha T also announced Migos has joined the label under G.O.O.D. Music management. As Miss Info points out, Migos are signed as an act through Quality Control and are distributed through 300 Entertainment. It will be interesting to see how this plays out for the rap trio, though this probably means we can expect some more collaborations between them and the G.O.O.D. Music roster.
