Will Smith tells Jimmy Kimmel what it's like to own part of the Sixers

Philadelphia's own Will Smith was a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night to help promote his new movie Collateral Beauty and found himself chatting about what it's like to own part of an NBA team.

"There is nothing, in like all of entertainment, than to walk into the building when it's announced that you're a part owner of your hometown basketball team," Smith said. "That is ridiculous. If the team doesn't win, it sucks later."

How does Smith deal with all the losing the 76ers are goin through?

"I live in L.A. though so it's cool. I go home when we winning."

What do they say about the weather in L.A.? It's fair.

Will mentioned his visit with the team before this season started and talked about how his message was to just keep it all together, don't let anything pull you off course.

Smith also notes that when he met the team, nine of the players weren't even born when the Fresh Prince of Bel Air came out. He old.

Unrelated, he told a story about needing to borrow $10 from a random fan at a gas station to put some fuel in his tank. Get it together, Will.

Pick some PPA violations and we'll tell you which Philly athlete you are

Is there anything more Philly than a Philadelphia Parking Authority violation? 

There is no greater sadness than walking out to your car, spotting that slim white and blue envelope on the front window from the distance, and just knowing it signifies: they got you. 

To those of us whom have fought this long battle, we salute you. While the PPA may have temporarily suspended some of their violations, we know it's only a matter of time before they emerge back and stronger than ever.

So, we've decided to create this handy little quiz for you to determine your Philly athelete personality, depending on the type of violation you will likely recieve next.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.
