Wilt vs. Roberts, Barkley vs. Lindros: The Ultimate Philly Athlete, round 1

updated.athletebracket

The Ultimate Philly Athlete bracket is complete. Your votes from last week placed the Eagles’ Brian Westbrook and the Phillies’ Robin Roberts in the final two spots. Now it’s time for the first round.

Who had a better career and meant more to the city? Was it the Flyers’ John LeClair or the Phillies’ Richie Ashburn? The Sixers’ Moses Malone or the Eagles’ Donovan McNabb? You have the opportunity to decide.

Voting lasts for a week. The winners will advance to the Sweet 16. Fox 29, which is teaming with Billy Penn, will announce those winners next Monday.
