The Philadelphia 76ers fans who yelled obscenities at Washington Wizards guard Isaiah Thomas won’t be attending another 76ers game any time soon. Those fans were banned from the Wells Fargo Center for 12 months after yelling at Thomas and flipping him off, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 76ers didn’t stop there, though. The team also identified the season-ticket holder who gave those fans the tickets. That season-ticket holder had their tickets revoked by the team.
Thomas was suspended two games for going into the stands and confronting the fans.

Thomas didn’t seem too happy about that. In a now-deleted tweet, Thomas said the NBA’s decision was “bulls---.”
The incident that led to the bans occurred with under three minutes to play in Saturday’s game. Thomas went into the stands to confront the fans. Thomas and the fans were then escorted out of the arena.

Following the contest, Thomas said the fans were upset because they wanted a frosty from Wendy’s. One of the 76ers’ promotions includes a free frosty if an opposing player misses two consecutive free throws during the second half of a game.
