Rap star Usher was in attendance to watch the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Minnesota Timberwolves in NBA playoff action.
Little did he know he’d be sitting courtside next to his long-lost twin.
In the most hilarious of moments, the rapper donned the same exact outfit as the fan sitting beside him, from the shirt down to the Aviator-style sunglasses.
That fan, though, was no ordinary fan. It was Tee Morant, the father of Grizzlies superstar guard Ja Morant.
In what we’re assuming was pure coincidence, the two sported identical getups as they sat on to watch some entertaining basketball.

The instance brought on a hilarious reaction from the Grizzlies’ media team.
Midway through the first half of action, Memphis opted to provide fans with some entertainment during a TV timeout. We’ve all seen this act before. The famous “Look A Like Cam,” where cameras find viewers in the stands that look like celebrities.
Tuesday gave the perfect match.

It’s not the first time this series that Tee Morant has made headlines. Last week, Morant was seen talking trash with Karl Towns, Sr. in a friendly back and forth on the sidelines during the fourth quarter of Game 1.
He seems to be enjoying himself this postseason, and he’ll be sure to make another appearance before the series is through. He’s hoping that Ja and the Grizzlies can pull out a couple more wins to advance to the second round of action.
