County Commissioner George Halcovage Spotted at Sixers Game Sunday

If you’re a fan of the 76ers, you’ve seen a fair share of celebrity sightings courtside this season.

For a while, it was Kendall Jenner. M Night Shyamalan sits near the visitor’s bench quite a bit. And Allen Iverson may be bunking at the arena in between home games.
