The Palestra documentary has all of the names you think of when it comes to college hoops in Philadlephia: John Chaney, Sonny Hill, Phil Martelli, Dr. Jack Ramsey, Fran Dunphy, Rollie Massamino, and the list goes on. The documentary has been in the works for quite some time now, but I just recently learned of it. Certainly those familiar with the storied history of Philadelphia basketball will be excited to see this piece. I not only attended games at the Palestra growing up, I also got a chance to play there while attending many of Fran Dunphy's basketball camps as a kid.
Watch the trailer over at the official site and you'll wonder why you haven't been to the Palestra lately.

What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
More to this as we learn it...
