As tensions surrounding the NBA's relationship with China continue to mount, a Philadelphia couple were escorted out of a 76ers game for their "Free Hong Kong" signs, CBS Philly reports. The preseason game, which took place on Tuesday, was between the 76ers and the Chinese Basketball Association's Guangzhou Loong Lions. Sam Wachs and his wife expressed their support for Hong Kong's autonomy from mainland China during the game, and Wachs said it got them kicked out after their sign was confiscated by security.

The moment when they were asked to leave was caught on video, as Wachs can be heard yelling "Free Hong Kong" as he left.
