Having recently won a Golden Globe Award for “Best Supporting Actress” in If Beale Street Could Talk, King was courtside in Madison Square Garden’s acclaimed “celebrity row,” likely to get a look at Ben Simmons and company.

Little did she know, she’d have a close and personal encounter with the Sixers’ star Joel Embiid.

As he charged toward the crowd in an effort to keep a loose ball in play, Embiid helped avert a nasty incident as the 7-footer showcased his athleticism to leap over King and into the stands.

“I only know one way to play and that’s to play hard and compete,” Joel said of why he didn’t pull up earlier.

The two-time All Star’s shoe appears to make contact with the bun of hair atop King’s head. Otherwise, she seems to have emerged from the incident unscathed.
