Fans raise banner for Sam Hinkie, couple gets engaged at Sixers draft lottery party (VIDEO)


There was a Philadelphia 76ers draft lottery party held on Tuesday. The Sixers held a 12 percent chance to get the first overall pick.

But that wasn’t the most exciting thing that happened before the selections were made. No, that came in the form of Sixers fans raising a banner as an ode to former Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie.

No, really.

Then a fan decided it was a good idea to engaged.

Philadelphia wound up with the No. 3 pick, with the Los Angeles Lakers picking at No. 2 and the Boston Celtics selecting first overall.
