Where in the world is Mike Scott? Crashing a wedding in Philly, last we checked

Where in the world is Mike Scott? Crashing a wedding in Philly, last we checked

If Mike Scott is anything, he’s a man of the people.

The Sixers’ power forward is having himself quite the weekend in Philadelphia.

Friday, he took on a fan in a footrace (see the video above).

Saturday, Scott shopped, signed some autographs and took plenty of photos with fans at Mitchell & Ness.

And Saturday night, he decided, after checking out a rap battle, to attend a wedding.

A little over an hour after sending that tweet, Scott was playing the bongos and sipping adult beverages.

He posed with the bride and groom, too.

He’s played 37 games with the Sixers, counting the playoffs, and he’s already one of the more beloved athletes in Philadelphia. Scott said at his exit interview that heading to the Sixers gave his career a “jolt,” and he’s spreading that energy everywhere you look.

Give him an address in the Philadelphia area and he just might show up.

Watch Ben Simmons put up the most jumpers we've seen in latest video

Just when you thought you got your final batch of Ben Simmons taking jumper videos, some fresh ones hit the Twittersphere Wednesday.

And this was probably the most shots of him taking actual NBA threes we’ve gotten.

While none of this really matters until Simmons takes these shots in an actual NBA game, the confidence he shows in these videos is encouraging.

And while these types of video are always edited just right to make the subject look good, it is nice to see the shots actually going down.
