If the NBA ever gets up and running again, look for those East Coast arenas to be more star-studded than ever.
"In West Philadelphia, born and raised," was how the tune went, if we recall The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air correctly.
The Smiths joined a group headed up by New York billionaire Joshua Harris that forked over a pretty penny for the team
"My partners and I are thrilled to have become owners of the Sixers," Harris said in a statement released by the team Tuesday. "It is an honor to become part of this storied franchise. We have a lot of work to do, but we have a rich history, a strong foundation and a bright future."
Mr. and Mrs. Smith haven't commented on the deal yet, but 76ers guard Evan Turner tweeted: "think it's dope that the fresh prince is one of our new owners. Maybe willow can perform at halftime."
Actually, we were thinking more along the lines of a duet between Willow's dad and Jay-Z, who owns a minority stake in the New Jersey Nets, when their teams face off.
