Meek Mill Was the Good Luck Charm At Last Night’s 76ers Game.

“I was just excited that he got to witness this because he’s always represented the city, and he loved this city so much,” Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid told ESPN after the team’s playoff series win.

Meek, who had just been released from prison hours prior, rang the ceremonial Liberty Bell before tipoff of Game 5 amid cheers from the crowd. They’d later secure a 104-91 win over the Miami Heat, sparking a happy “hysteria” from all in attendance. “The city’s so excited to have him. The team’s so excited,” 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin shared.

Welcome back, Meek.
