Pat Croce will ring the bell before Wednesday’s Wizards-Sixers game
The Philadelphia 76ers will have a familiar face ringing the bell before Wednesday’s game two playoff game against the Washington Wizards. According to his own Twitter account, Pat Croce will be returning to the Wells Fargo Center to ring the bell.
Pat Croce’s Sixers History:
Croce beat cancer and was the President/Owner of the 2001 Sixers team that went the whole way to the NBA Finals on the back of Allen Iverson. It was the last time the Sixers entered the playoffs as the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.
Yesterday’s bell ringer was none other than Dikembe Mutumbo, who was the Sixers’ center 20 years ago during the finals run.
As for the rest of the playoffs, who knows who we’ll see ringing the bell. A name that has been thrown around social media, even by Daryl Morey himself, was none other than Sam Hinkie.
Hinkie ringing the bell would send the Wells Fargo Center into flames. If I had to guess, the Sixers would save someone like Hinkie until later on in the playoffs, but we’ll take this one game at a time.
Game two is Wednesday night at 7:00pm.
