The now famous teen who cracked an egg on the head of an Australian politician certainly has some high profile fans.

Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons paid tribute to the 17-year-old kid known as "egg boy," by writing the teen's name on his yellow shoes before the game against the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday.
