76ers Fan From Wild Ja Morant Photo Finally Identified

76ers Fan From Wild Ja Morant Photo Finally Identified

The Philadelphia 76ers triumphed over the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this week in a very consequential game for both sides.

Despite Ja Morant and Co. maintaining a lead for most of the evening, Philly battled back hard and won the game.

The victory raised the 76ers to third in the Eastern Conference, putting them just three back of the first-place Boston Celtics. And on the other side, it dropped Memphis to 4-6 in their last 10 and reduced their lead over the third-place Sacramento Kings to just 1.5 games.

All that being said, the fans really stole the show at this one. A Sixers fan obviously became a viral superstar after her celebration to a Tobias Harris three nearly caused the internet to explode. But she wasn’t alone.

Another fan standing next to Morant also caused something of a stir.

It didn’t take long for NBA Twitter and various online sleuths to identify her.

Dom, as she appears to go by on her social media, has 5,400 followers at the moment and that number seems to be growing exponentially by the hour.

To say that a star was born at this Sixers-Grizzlies game is an understatement.

“The best thing to come out of Philly since Rocky,” one fan wrote.

“I would’ve dropped 60 in front of [you] just saying,” another person added.

Morant didn’t seem nonplussed by her appearance at the game (taking Drake’s girl will have that effect on a man), but based on recent history it’s safe to say Golden State Warriors star Jordan Poole definitely would have been.

Philly fans come out in droves when their teams are winning.

And the 76ers have been winning a decent amount as of late.

Who will be the next viral superstar to emerge from a future 76ers game? Time will tell.
