The NBA's off-court summertime drama can often be as interesting as free agency itself.
Philadelphia-based rapper Meek Mill just performed in Las Vegas this weekend, and while the venue was packed, no two celebrities caught more eyes than star ballers Ben Simmons and Kevin Durant.
Meek took to Instagram on Sunday night to post some pictures of his performance, including one featuring himself, Simmons and Durant.
Interestingly enough, these two could very well end up facing off for a title next summer. This is an interesting way for a fierce on-court rivalry to start.

Rumors surrounding Durant's love life have recently come up, too, as reports suggested that he might be dating Simmons' ex-girlfriend, Tinashe. Although those rumors were shut down by Tinashe herself, it can be a little weird for the two stars to be together right after that story broke out.
From a basketball perspective, it's well known that Durant can opt out of his deal with the Golden State Warriors next year, and many are already starting to throw around the idea of the two-time champion testing the free agency market that will also feature Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, and more. Durant was also notably seen with LeBron James at a Los Angeles bar.
Maybe the two-time defending Finals MVP is just looking to build a relationship with Simmons out of human decency. Maybe he's looking to bury the hatchet on these dating rumors. Maybe he just wanted to have a good time.
We'll go with the latter-- for now.
