James Harden wasn’t the only one representing the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday Night Football. Bradley Cooper was seen on the field cheering for his hometown football team as well. The Hollywood actor was captivating the crowd as he showed off his love for the Sixers with a retro Allen Iverson shirt.
Cooper – a huge Philly sports fan, both on and off the silver screen – has been showered with love on Twitter for choosing his wardrobe. The “Cooper Iverson Shirt” quickly became a selling item on the Internet.
The Sixers cleverly watched everything unfold from afar, then seized the opportunity. Social media team He made a plea to reach out to Cooper: “Looks like he’s going to be the best bell of the season!” It is a great honor to ring the festive Liberty Bell before the Sixers Games.
It is a great honor to ring the festive Liberty Bell before the Sixers Games. Cooper will join the likes meek millKevin Hart, Charlie Manuel, Don Staley, M Night Shyamalan, Michael B Jordan – and of course Iverson himself. Someone needs to track down Cooper and make him do it.
“Absolute Bell List” for the 2022-23 season
1. Galen Hurts: The Sixers know how crazy the Wells Fargo Center can be when the Philadelphia Eagles are home. Jordan Davis, Nacobi Dean and Hasson Riddick all enjoyed last season at the expense of Tyler Hero in a playoff. Hurts is QB1 and is on his way to NFL MVP (Jinx). It’s hard to argue about any better option to launch the crowd into their October 20 opening home game against Milwaukee. That match, coincidentally, occurs during the Eagles’ Farewell Week.
2. Bradley Cooper: Assuming the conclusion of his new Netflix movie about legendary composer Leonard Berstein, Cooper is the perfect pick to whip up a foam on audiences when the Los Angeles Lakers—the pride of Hollywood—come into town on December 9. He was never shy about confessing his love for his hometown, telling CBS News, “I have an enormous amount of pride because my family’s roots are in Philly.” one more connection: Cooper attended Georgetown University when Allen Iverson was there.
3 – Sam Hinke The Process engineer was never able to complete his master class on tanks (blame Adam Silver), but calls for him to ring the bell were raging. Joel Embiid has suggested that Hinkie deserves the chance to do so in 2021. The Sixers will dip their toes in some shallow water if they bring the former GM back, but the applause will spoil the roof off the track. Hinkie has a cult following In Philly, a competitor arguably rivals Rocky Balboa. Any game. Did not matter.
4. Will Smith with Chris Rock: The Oscar winner is in dire need of positive PR after his thrilling experience at the Academy Awards last year. He slapped one of America’s most beloved comedians, and then rightly received a 10-year ban. Smith, who owns a minority ownership stake in The Sixers, has since apologized while keeping a low profile. It’s time to get back there. And what better way to do that than by making an appearance when the Sixers host the New York Knicks on November 4th…with special guest Chris Rock. (Remember, the Knicks are my favorite rock band.)
5. Nia Long: very soon? likely. The Boston Celtics have been dragged through the mud enough this off season. Save the date: February 25, 2023.
