Basketball brings people together — unless you’re Ben Simmons and Karl-Anthony Towns. While the NBA stars turned the basketball court into a wrestling ring at Wednesday night’s game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves, Diplo and Meek Mill had a front-row seat to the action while hanging out courtside.
“Can’t believe I just witnessed [Ben Simmons’] WWE debut live,” Diplo tweeted after the two players got into an on-court altercation.
Diplo took a few selfies with Meek during the event, along with a video shooting T-shirts out of a cannon and a few photos of himself in a star-spangled yeehaw suit bearing his name and the Sixers’ midcourt logo on the back. (You'll certainly recall that it’s the same one he wore in the music video for his Jonas Brothers collab “Lonely.”)
“Guess my favorite team,” he tweeted of his ensemble.
Both Diplo and Meek Mill have ties to Philadelphia: The producer went to college and got his professional start there, and Meek was born and raised in the city. So what bro-manteau do we give this Philly-repping twosome? Milldip? Meeklo? Let us know.
