ESPN Classic will celebrate Philadelphia sports with a nine-hour tribute on Saturday from noon-9 p.m. ET. ESPN Classic will look back at some of the greatest moments by the Phillies, Eagles and Flyers. The tribute will also highlight classic Philadelphia athletes such as the 76ers Dr. J and Darryl Dawkins. Here is Saturday's schedule:
Kerry Kittles scores five of his 10 points in the game's final two minutes as the No. 2 Wildcats rally, but fall short, suffering a 62-56 upset to their cross-town rivals.
Mike Schmidt drives in two runs, and Tug McGraw gets out of a bases-loaded jam to preserve a 4-1 victory, bringing the Phillies their first World Series championship in club history.
The show focuses on such aspects as his love of nicknames and naming his dunks, his musical preferences, his Planet Lovetron, and footage of his NBA action.
The show examines how Erving took the game above the rim, his stature as an ambassador of the game, his famous Afro hairstyle, and footage of Game 4 of the 1983 NBA Finals, when he led the 76ers past the Lakers for his first NBA title.
Villanova shoots 79% from the floor and wins 66-64 in "one of the greatest upsets in tournament history."
1975 Stanley Cup Finals, Game 6: Philadelphia Flyers @ Buffalo Sabres
The Flyers, led by Finals MVP goaltender Bernie Parent, win 2-0 and take the series as the "Broad Street Bullies" win back-to-back Cup titles.
