Philadelphia 76ers Power Forward Nerlens Noel has had a very strange moment on Monday surrounding his film viewing preferences.

The world was rocked on Monday as news of beloved actor Robin Williams' death spread throughout Twitter.

The world took turns to publish messages of condolences and their favourite moments from Williams' acting career. 

But one particularly creepy moment that happened includes the Sixers player and an impromptu interview for TMZ.

Interviewed approximately one hour before the news of Williams death was announced, Noel was asked what the last film that made him cry was?

Hard pressed for an answer, He was then asked what movie is on top of his player at home to which he responded 'Jumanji'.

The 1995 adventure movie is certainly one of Williams' most famous performances and the pure coincidence of it being discussed one hour before the news was announced and certainly has some scary connotations to it.

A sad day for the movie industry

On the same day that wrestling legend Hulk Hogan was receiving tweets and honourable mentions from some of America's biggest names like Larry King, New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees and Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Twitter was also rocked.

Once the news of Williams' death emerged, #RIPRobinWilliams became the number one trend in America for several hours.

May of Williams best known movies also trended on Twitter during Monday including Jumanji, Good Will Hunting, Mrs Doubtfire and Flubber.

Some of his other works such as Patch Adams, Aladdin and Bicentennial Man all at one point were trending throughout America.

Williams was clearly the big name on everybody's mind on Monday but he will not be gone off our screens forever as he had three projects in post production.

Back to work

With the NBA currently in the off-season there have already been a lot of headlines from around the league to keep fans happy.

From LeBron James returning to Cleveland to the mass exodus and eventual return of players to the Miami Heat.

The NBA draft then to Minnesota Timberwolves Kevin Love being set to be traded to the Cavaliers to join LeBron.

As for the 76ers they are in a very important off-season period right now after they finished 19-63 last season.

It was certainly season to forget for Sixers fans as they finished bottom of the Atlantic division and had a record tying 26 game losing streak from January to April.
