On Sunday (February 10), LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers took on Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers. The crowd was packed and included the likes of Philadelphia Eagles players Carson Wentz and Alshon Jeffrey, as well as Lakers president Magic Johnson and Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Since Simmons was on the court, it also meant his girlfriend, Kendall Jenner, was watching from courtside. However, a viral photo of Jenner has the internet talking, as does James' defense on Simmons in a viral video clip.

Kendall longing for LeBron?

With Kendall Jenner courtside, the Philadelphia 76ers have actually done quite well. At least one Twitter post indicates the team is 13-2 with Ben Simmons' good luck charm watching in person. However, photographers also captured an interesting shot of Ms. Jenner as she was gazing at none other than King James during Sunday's Lakers vs Sixers matchup.

The photo below has gone viral, similar to the one LeBron had on Instagram for the Lakers' buzzer-beater win this past week.

Many of the latest tweets are suggesting finding a girl who looks at you the way Jenner looks at LeBron. Others have trolled Simmons a bit, suggesting Jenner wants to upgrade, despite LeBron being a married man. Other tweets say it caused Ben Simmons to actually attempt a three-pointer (he missed) and other crazy things during the game.

Once again, the Philadelphia 76ers came up with a victory with Jenner at courtside, though.

It's unknown if the viral photo was brought up to Simmons as he finished with just a 3-of-13 outing and eight points in the game, along with seven assists and three rebounds.

That was just one of the viral incidents from Sunday's game. In the matchup, LeBron James apparently didn't feel the need to guard Ben Simmons too far up the court. In fact, he was seen patrolling the paint and allowed Simmons any shot he wanted from the top of the three-point arc to even closer.

On Thursday (February 7), LeBron James actually traded for Ben Simmons to be on his NBA All-Star team during the 2019 game's draft event on TNT. King James exchanged Russell Westbrook for Simmons with the other team's captain, Giannis Antetokounmpo. James fittingly made Kevin Durant his top pick as a teammate.

With Sunday's matchup, Magic Johnson spoke of Simmons reaching out to the Lakers, as well. He mentioned that if the Sixers allow it, Simmons can meet with him. Magic said it's because Simmons wants to pick his brain about playing as a bigger guard in the league. However, one can't help but wonder if Magic will try to convince him that Los Angeles is a better place than Philly.

The only problem might be that Simmons would team up with the guy that his girl Kendall Jenner was gazing at during Sunday's game.
