Famous actor Bradley Cooper and rapper Meek Mill sat courtside to cheer on their beloved Philadelphia 76ers in the team’s crucial sixth game of an Eastern Conference playoff series against the New York Knicks.

Cooper sat behind the net, closer to the New York bench, wearing a red and blue bomber jacket with 76ers legend Julius Erving’s name and the number 33 on the back.

Meek Mill wore a black t-shirt, black shorts, and black shoes to match his gold chains.

The ‘Maestro’ actor and the ‘Going Bad’ rapper sat courtside two days after Madison Square Garden’s celebrity row was at capacity with the likes of Sting, Offset, Cardi B, Ben Stiller, Julianne Moore et al.

Celebrities also in attendance included Eagles players AJ Brown, Saquon Barkley and Cooper DeJean, as well as team security guard Big Dom.

Famous film director M. Night Shyamalan was also present along with Phillies players Brandon Marsh and Alec Bohm.

Interestingly, Cooper’s only award for EGOT status is a Grammy, for ‘Shallow’ with Lady Gaga, which he recorded for the film ‘A Star is Born.’ Cooper has been nominated for an Oscar five times, but has not won an Academy Award.

The Knicks survived and edged out the 76ers with a 118-115 victory.

New York will face the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Cooper, Barkley and the rest of the celebrities at the Wells Fargo Center were surrounded by a partisan Philadelphia crowd thanks to about 4,000 tickets given away to 76ers fans by the team’s owners.

The goal in purchasing the tickets was to keep Knicks fans out of the Wells Fargo Center and give the team a true home-field advantage.

The team’s minority owner, Michael Rubin, said on social media that those fines would be given to first responders, health care professionals and other Philadelphia-based organizations.

During Sunday’s Game 4 in Philadelphia, Knicks fans made their presence known, making it sound more like Madison Square Garden South.
