In the first round of the Ultimate Philly Athlete bracket, almost all the favorites advanced. The lone upsets came courtesy of Ron Hextall over Eddie Collins and Charles Barkley over Eric Lindros. Now the bracket is about to get even more interesting. Which Sixers’ championship teammate was more important — Dr. J or Moses Malone? Which long ago legend meant more to Philadelphia — Chuck Bednarik or Steve Carlton?
You have until Friday to vote. The winners will be announced next Monday on Fox 29.
