The Finals MVP almost succumbed to the tunes, but not before of sending an invitation to Super Bowl LVIII halftime performer, Usher, who is in the midst of a residency tour in Las Vegas.
“Usher, I saw you got your “national Usher day.” … We lit, the parade is Monday,” Wilson said, referring to the city proclaiming Oct. 17 as “Usher Raymond Day.”
Wilson followed up by posting a written reminder on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Hey @Usher 🤭 if ya not busy our parade is tomorrow …if ya wanna slide 😁

Usher didn’t make it out to the parade, but replied to the post with a video to the champs that ended with him extending his own invitation.
“A’ja Wilson, I got your message. I see you, I hear you. Couldn’t be at the parade but I wanted to send this out to you to say congratulations. …I wanted to invite you to come see the show, come see me do it “My Way” in Vegas.”

Wilson immediately swooned at the response, but Sydney Colson is still looking for clarity on how many tickets the Grammy Award-winning crooner offered to the Aces.
According to Wilson, the veteran reserve guard’s Game 4 contributions may not be enough for consideration.

Usher didn’t specify a date in his offer, but he has two more shows slated for October at the Park MGM and 10 dates throughout November.
