T.J. McConnell had just finished a recent game with the Philadelphia 76ers when he and his father, a few family members and some friends decided to visit an establishment within walking distance of Wells Fargo Center. 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.
