How the NBA celebrated the Eagles’ win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII


The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, 41-33, in exciting fashion.

It seemed like the entire Twittersphere was happy the Patriots finally took a loss the same night a backup QB won Super Bowl MVP in Nick Foles. Indeed, several NBA players took to their own social media pages to celebrate the win in Minnesota as Broad Street filled with rabid Philadelphians.

These included players who are from Philly, played in Philly, or currently play for the 76ers. Several also simply decided to congratulate the Eagles on their big win, the first Super Bowl in the team’s history.

Perhaps the best example of which was Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, who crashed a local TV segment as he was walking around the streets partying with Eagles fans. Philly native Kobe Bryant was also pretty pumped about the news.
