LeBron James wished his “lil bro” Ben Simmons a Happy 21st Birthday on Thursday with a nice tweet that even included a fun 76ers joke.
The Cavaliers star says they should “go have a Shirley temple with a twist.” Shirley Temples are known to be Simmons’ goofy Sixers teammate Joel Embiid’s favorite drink. James is saying they should have some of those, but with alcohol.
Simmons responded with laughing emojis. It was a good joke.
This comes a couple days after Simmons tweeted a cryptic eyes emoji at James that may be giving 76ers fans hope that the three-time champ could maybe perhaps be thinking about playing in Philly.
These tweets, however, make it pretty clear that the social media messages are all in good fun. Simmons and James are just two friends who are represented by the same sports agency, Klutch Sports Group, having fun online (and working out together).
