Yet another big man is joining the Sixers, only this time it’s in the broadcast booth. Former NBA veteran Alaa Abdelnaby, who played three games for the Sixers during the 1994 season, has been added to Comcast’s Sixers broadcast team. Abdelnaby will provide color commentary alongside Marc Zumoff and Molly French for the upcoming season. “The opportunity to join the Comcast SportsNet and 76ers family and work alongside Marc and Molly is tremendously exciting,” said Abdelnaby. “The 76ers are building something special and I look forward to sharing their story with our viewers.”
And he remembered that Okafor, who finished with 12 points, hit a couple tough shots. That, he said, he won’t forget and he voiced his displeasure, quickly shifting from fan to foe. “One thing is sure: He’s on my list right now,” said Gortat, who scored seven points in Washington’s 129-95 win. “The next four games, I’m coming. I’m coming. So I hope he’s going to read that. I’m coming. I’m coming for him.”
