The Philadelphia Sixers will be opening the 2016-17 season at home next Wednesday, October 26th against the Oklahoma City Thunder, as they begin their quest to get more than 10 wins.

As if the unadulterated hope of a new season, Joel Embiid's regular season debut, and seeing the electric Russell Westbrook live isn't a big enough draw, the Sixers have also announced that Desiigner will be performing "Panda" during halftime. Still not sold?

Additionally, the Sixers will reportedly have some stuffed pandas completely decked out in Sixers gear on hand as well. also reports that R&B songstress Sevyn Streeter will sing the National Anthem before tip-off.

Let the countdown begin.
