ATLANTA (Nov. 10, 2005) -- Suspended Philadelphia Eagles receiver Terrell Owens received a mixed reaction of cheers and boos from fans at the Atlanta Hawks' home game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday night.
Owens, an Atlanta resident, was suspended from the Eagles team for criticism of the organization and his teammates.
Owens had a courtside seat near the Clippers' bench. He was shown on the Philips Arena video board in the first half.
After the public address announcer said "Terrell Owens is in the house!" there was a loud and mixed response from the fans.
Owens smiled and waved at the camera.
Owens wouldn't say why he was attending the game. His publicist, Kim Etheredge, said Owens "is still a Georgia resident, so why not?"
Owens' six-bedroom Atlanta home was recently put up for sale. The 18,000-square-foot home in south DeKalb County includes a full gymnasium and sits on five acres overlooking a lake with a sandy beach.
