It was a big night at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday.
For starters, the Atlantic Division-leading 76ers hosted the scorching New York Knicks and whatever’s left of Linsanity. So that was big.
There were also plenty of celebrities on hand, including 76ers minority owner/happyness pursuer Will Smith, filmmaker/Knicks fanatic Spike Lee and newly acquired Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
(Ryans is not the guy in the creamsicle shirt, in case you were wondering.)
(Sitting between them? Daniel Briere. /rimshot)
It proved to be a big night for Simmonds, who tweeted that he got to meet Smith during the contest.
It remains unclear if Hartnell was granted an audience with the Fresh Prince (or if he was reduced to hanging with Carlton), but if there are any further developments on that front, we’ll be sure to let you know.
