The best story of the day! A must read!
Sixers mascot Hip-Hop, the Sixers Dancers, Hare Raisers and the 'Sixth Man Squad,' made up of volunteers from the team’s front office staff, will make 26 total stops throughout the Philadelphia region, with many in the same day. As students arrive at their school, the Sixth Man Squad forms a high-five tunnel and give away Sixers prizes.
One of the most popular athletes in Philadelphia sports history, Julius Erving played 11 seasons as member of the Sixers after being acquired from the New York Nets of the ABA in 1976. 'Dr. J' was selected to play in the NBA All-Star Game in each of his 11 season and the league and helped lead the Sixers to the championship in 1983. We sat down with the good doctor to chat about what’s been keeping him busy in “retirement” as well as some memories of his playing days and of his brief stint as an actor.
