Bryce Harper literally "rang the bell" before tonight's nationally televised 8 p.m. Philadelphia 76ers game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center.
It is rare for a Philadelphia Phillies' scheduled off day to coincide with a 76ers game, and Harper, with "several" Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies players in attendance, surely raised the noise level inside the venue ahead of the opening tip-off.

Harper was seen earlier in the day at Mitchell & Ness with his wife, Kayla, picking up his first Sixers gear.

We'd like to give a huge shout out to @Phillies Right Fielder, @bryceharper3 and his wife @kayyharper8 for stopping by @MNFlagshipStore today! LETS GO PHILS!#PhillyLoaded #RingTheBell pic.twitter.com/xp9yY31r28
Sixers legend, and fellow No. 3 star Allen Iverson, will return the favor this weekend, as he will throw the ceremonial first pitch of the Phillies-Twins game at Citizens Bank Park.
"Welcome to the moment," Bryce!
