Philadelphia dealer turns out to be a good sport to catch zzz’s courtside

Philadelphia dealer turns out to be a good sport to catch zzz's courtside

Kelleher is getting seats on the field thanks to his dealer’s longstanding sponsorship of the 76ers. When he sank, the team had a four-point lead in its bid to even make the best-of-seven series at two games apiece. Philadelphia won, 116-108.

“I get it. I get that everyone saw the moment and thought, how can that man sleep on the pitch during one of the most exciting matches? But I was just exhausted,” said Kelleher. “I’m an easygoing guy. I can definitely take one to the chin — and I’m just having fun with it, you know? It’s my moment in time, and for a guy who gets a lot of moments in time, this is just fun.”

Kelleher said he planned to attend Game 6 of the series but would be in a suite well out of camera view.
