The Philadelphia 76ers revoked the season ticket of the spectator who poured popcorn on Washington Wizards star Russell Westbrook and indefinitely banned the fan from events at the Wells Fargo Center.
“We apologize to Russell Westbrook and the Washington Wizards for being subjected to this type of unacceptable and disrespectful behavior,” the 76ers said in a statement Thursday. “There is no place for it in our sport or arena.”
While Westbrook headed to the locker room during the fourth quarter of the Wizards’ 120-95 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday, someone dropped popcorn on him from the stands, and Westbrook had to be restrained.

Had he decided to keep them as an investment, those 10K bitcoins would’ve eventually been worth $365-million.
