Arcade Fire: the Unofficial Indie-Rock Band of the NBA

Hipster Runoff once again points our attention to a burgeoning, awesome trend: members of Arcade Fire hanging out with NBA players. In February, it was Win Butler being interviewed by the San Antonio Spurs' Matt Bonner, flexing his impressive basketball IQ in the process. Now the band has moved from the bench to the starting five: Earlier today, Steve Nash tweeted, "I met the amazing Arcade Fire b4 the game last night. Great people who brought us luck," along with a photo of him hanging with the crew. Hey, NBA commissioner David Stern — can this flowering relationship be officially cemented somehow?
