T.J. McConnell had just finished a recent game with the Sixers when he and his father, a few family members and some friends decided to visit Xfinity Live!
T.J. was first to the door when a worker announced there was a $10 cover charge, but free admittance with a 76ers ticket stub.
“He played,” said Tim McConnell, pointing at his son.
The worker still wanted $10.
“No, you don’t understand. He played in the game,” Tim McConnell tried to reason.
No matter. It was $10.
Such is the respect these days for a 76ers player.
