Sixers’ Dwight Howard Loves Having Fans Back in South Philly

Fan Nation


Article Summary:

Dwight Howard never let the lack of Philadelphia 76ers fans at the Wells Fargo Center stop him from having a good time. While the Wells Fargo Center still isn’t packing in 20,000-plus people just yet, the city of Philadelphia has allowed a little over 3,000 fans in the building for the last few games. After Tuesday night’s game against the New York Knicks, Sixers head coach Doc Rivers mentioned that he believes the fans’ presence fuels Howard and helps him play better. “I’ve been loving every minute of having the fans in the stadium. It means so much to me. For me, I know that everybody’s been at home during COVID. Now they get to see their team play. I just try to provide some energy and get the crowd into it because we miss these guys. We miss our fans. We miss them at the games.”

Sometime soon, the Sixers could have even more fans added into the mix as the city is expected to raise the minimum from a little over 3,000 fans in the arena to a little over 5,000.
