The Indiana Pacers racked up a win over the Charlotte Hornets at home, but the real treat for the fans was Myles Turner and his girlfriend cosplaying the iconic Han Solo and Princess Leia on NBA Star Wars night.

Myles Turner is a well-known Star Wars fan

The connection between Myles Turner and Star Wars is well documented within the NBA fandom. A massive fan of George Lucas’ epic space opera media franchise, the Pacers center has displayed his inner Star Wars fanboy in several occasions- from his 100k piece “Darth Myles” Lego build, to dressing up as Darth Vader for Star Wars Night back in 2021, as well as becoming The Mandalorian for the same night last year.
