The Sixers bounced back in a big way in game 2 up in Toronto on Monday night which, in addition to making the series competitive heading back to Philadelphia, allowed Philly fans everywhere to gain a few notches in their Trash Talking meters.
Count comedian Kevin Hart among us.
Hart may have found a target to unleash his many words upon:
Musical stylings aside, I don't think a single person who roots for the Sixers enjoyed seeing Drake courtside up in The Six cheering on his Raptors and talking smack. Hart, being a well-established Philly sports fan, tweeted at Drake after the game.
See you in Philly @Drake ....Lets go SIXERS!!!!!!! Great game tonight fellas!!!!!— Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4real) April 30, 2019
Only problem is, Hart doesn't have the best track record when it comes to attending Sixers games. One brilliant sports writer wondered in 2018 if we need to ban Kevin Hart from attending Sixers games.
So when Hart tweeted at Drake, the response was an overwhelming "please don't go to the game!" from his followers. A sampling:
you better not be there— socially distant sports fan (@legsanity) April 30, 2019
please don’t go— ty (@margsy_) April 30, 2019
Please stay home— Kdot (@IgglesHQ) April 30, 2019
Please watch at home, Kevin.— Jake (@jakesilverman) April 30, 2019
Kev stay home— Russell Moss (@Russywitdaswagg) April 30, 2019
You banned from the Wells Fargo Center until further notice— YRG (@reesedinero_rpg) April 30, 2019
Now, Hart may have bad luck at Sixers games, but he's not a total mush. Although he may at times be a lush. Remember that time the Eagles won the Super Bowl and Hart made a big scene?
So, keep an eye out for Hart courtside on Thursday. If the Sixers lose, you'll have someone to blame other than Kawhi and Brett.
