Over the weekend, Doug Collins won his 400th game as a coach and was pretty excited. Just not excited as Philly native and Sixers co-owner Will Smith who was extra jazzy about the milestone because it came against the rival Celtics. The Fresh Prince even went so far to say that “Larry Bird ruined my childhood.” Thank god he was sent to move in with his aunt and uncle in their wealthy Bel Air mansion to salvage his life.
Last week, the NBA Board of Governors voted unanimously to approve the sale from Comcast-Spectacor to Harris’ group. That includes Will Smith all Jada Pinkett Smith. Sadly, DJ Jazzy Jeff tried to buy a piece of the team too, but Uncle Phil tossed him out the room.
“I think it’s dope that the Fresh Prince is one of our new owners. Maybe Willow can perform at halftime,” guard Evan Turner tweeted after the announcement, referring to Smith’s daughter of Whip My Hair fame.
