A man named Sam Wachs and his wife began the chant as the 76ers were hosting the Guangzhou Long Lions, a Chinese basketball team.

To Hell with the nba!
LMFAO. I can’t believe the way these totalitarian idiots keep digging their own financial graves. I hope Knicks owner Jim Dolan lives to be 150 and the NBA is stuck with a 3-79 high school team every year for the next 85 seasons in their largest market.
