Remember the fan who threw popcorn at Russell Westbrook on Game 2 of the Playoffs at Wells Fargo Center? well, he can say goodbye to going to any event at the arena. The Sixers released a statement this morning regarding the incident last night:
“After an investigation into the incident that occurred at last night’s game, we have determined that the person involved will have his season ticket membership revoked, effectively immediately. In addition, he will be banned from all events at Wells Fargo Center indefinitely. We apologize to Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards for being subjected to this type of unacceptable and disrespectful behavior. There is no place for it in our sport or arena.”
After the events of last night, thousands of fans reacted angry at the incident and they remembered the infamous event "Malice at the Palace" where Pistons - Pacers were involved in the most infamous brawl in NBA history. And don't forget this topic is gonna be talked about on the next few days because of this clown
