Netflix just dropped a juicy new trailer today for their upcoming movie ‘Hustle’ and the eagle-eyed Sixers fans among us would’ve spotted a few familiar faces.

The movie follows on from the success of ‘uncut gems’ and sees Adam Sandler take on a serious role in a refreshing change, set to star as basketball scout Stanley Sugarman. Stanley scouts Bo Cruz, portrayed by Juancho Hernangomez of the Utah Jazz, and we can see the two partaking in a very Philly-esque pump-up.

It doesn’t take long for the Philadelphia references to sneak in. Meek Mill starts playing, flashes of Sixers logos hit the screen along with Allen Iverson murals, and then we see some cameos from current (and one former) players.

Tobias Harris, Seth Curry, Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey, and Head Coach Doc Rivers, can all be seen in the trailer and will feature in the movie that is actually co-produced by none other than LeBron James.

If street basketball, underdog stories, gritty settings, and cameos from your favorite Sixers players sound like a good time, then keep an eye out for the movie when it drops on June 10th, just in time for Philadelphia to make a championship charge.
