This is a story all about how / the Suns and the 76ers turned their Twitter chats upside-down / and if you'd like to take a minute just sit right there / so we can tell you how they social-media riffed on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air."
The Phoenix Suns playfully engaged the Philadelphia 76ers first on Tuesday, noting a glaring exemption from Philly's summer league team. Because not only is the Fresh Prince one of the City of Brotherly Love's most famous denizens ("west Philadelphia born and raised") -- he's royalty to boot:
The Sixers, not to be outdone, gamely took the play (without losing character):
The Suns got the ball back and took it coast to coast:
Until the Sixers threw down this game-winning buzzer-beater with this uncanny side-by-side shot of Will Smith's Fresh Prince with 2013 draftee Nerlens Noel:
It was a slam dunk that even the Suns had to applaud:
All in all, a fun Twitter pick-up game to keep fans entertained in the offseason. Can't wait for the Utah Jazzy Jeff to play next.
