Picture Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in the movie Step Brothers.
Ferrell (Brennan): "Did we just become best friends?"
Reilly (Dale): Yep!
Now, picture Matisse Thybulle and a Roomba. Yes, that just happened.
The former UW basketball star, and Philadelphia 76ers first-round pick in 2019, recently shared a video to his TikTok account of his new best friend: a Roomba.

With his No.4 Huskies jersey hanging in the background, Thybulle walks his iRobot vacuum, teaches it to come when called, and feeds it Tostitos scoops while relaxing on the couch.
This is true friendship.
While the NBA season remains suspended during the coronavirus outbreak, Thybulle is trying to make the most of his situation, including finding new friends to keep him busy while stuck in quarantine.
The rookie is averaging 4.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists through 57 games with the 76ers this season.
