(00:00-14:05) On today’s Afternoon Show, it is day one of Top 5 week. Today Tyrone asks you your Top 5 NBA players and Philadelphia 76ers. Tyrone shares his. Tom shares his and so does Connor, who is in for Jen today. The word of the day is five. Tyrone is very curious to hear what you have to say. He believes many older people automatically put ‘old-school’ players on their list because they feel what they watched growing up can’t be matched. Because of this many ‘new-school’ players don’t get the respect they deserve. The crew also reacts to Nick Castellanos’ comments saying he hasn’t felt comfortable at the plate this year, but it is coming.
