Rapper Meek Mill will join the Philadelphia 76ers in Boston for the team’s Game 2 matchup Thursday night against Celtic as a guest of 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin, a team source told ESPN’s Sal Paclantonio.
According to the sources, the Sixers team will fly Meek Mill with them for Game 2 of their series in Boston. There’s a hope, Meek Mill’s lucky streak will rub off on the Sixers rotation.
Before traveling to Boston, Meek Mill joined Rubin, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf and other leaders in Philly for a criminal reform rally.
