Usher is in on the joke.

Especially when it scores him courtside playoff seats.

The hip-hop/R&B artist has been seen on the sideline during the Grizzlies-Timberwolves playoff series, prompting questions about why the part-Cleveland Cavaliers owner is repping another team during the playoffs.

It turns out it's not actually Usher, but Tee Morant, father of Grizzlies star Ja Morant. And Tee rocks a remarkably similar style to the '90s/2000s music icon.

The look generated Twitter buzz early in the series, so everybody got on board with the joke for Game 5 when it returned to Memphis — the Grizzlies included.

Yep, that's actually Usher sitting next to his newfound doppelganger courtside on Tuesday. Who's who? You be the judge. OK, it's a little easier with their glasses off. But the pair donned their shades for some jokes on the big screen and the TNT broadcast.

All Tee needs to complete the look is the chain.
