在Houston Rockets 總經理的tweet 引發「NBA中美風暴」後，關於香港的議題在NBA 各場所浮面。在Philadelphia 76ers 的季前賽中，有兩名球迷手持“Free Hong Kong” 的標語。而他們在被警示後最終在球賽第二節被逐離場。
The Wells Fargo Center’s event staff is responsible for the security and comfort of all guests at arena events, including 76ers games. At last evening’s game, following multiple complaints from guests and verbal confrontations with others in attendance, two individuals were warned by Wells Fargo Center staff about their continuing disruption of the fan experience. Ultimately, the decision was made by Wells Fargo Center personnel to remove the guests from the premises, which was accomplished without incident.
而主場館Wells Fargo Center 也發出聲明，聲明如下：
During the second quarter of last night’s 76ers game, Wells Fargo Center security responded to a situation that was disrupting the live event experience for our guests. After three separate warnings, the two individuals were escorted out of the arena without incident. The security team employed respectful and standard operating procedures.
