Zoo is a good dude. Authentic type of guy and low-key solid Twitter game.
From the press release:
The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that the team will honor NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Marc Zumoff at The Center during Tuesday night’s 76ers-Timberwolves game on NBC Sports Philadelphia. Zumoff is in the midst of his 25th season as the team’s play-by-play broadcaster and has called 1,882 regular-season and 61 playoff games during his tenure.
Throughout the evening, both in-arena and on social media, the 76ers will recognize Zumoff with video tributes, including some of his top calls as the team’s broadcaster. Prior to the game, Zumoff will ring the ceremonial Liberty Bell just before tipoff.
NBC Sports Philadelphia will also partake in the special night, airing video tributes from Zumoff’s colleagues throughout the NBA, former and present 76er players, as well as repurposing some of his most memorable calls during the network’s broadcast of 76ers-Timberwolves. Zumoff will appear on NBC Sports Philadelphia’s live talk show, Philly Sports Talk, in the 5 p.m. hour, prior to the game.
Zumoff’s likeness will be placed on the pole pads on the stanchion of each basket.. A special-edition “roster card,” featuring Zumoff, will be distributed to select fans seated courtside.
Marc’s a local guy. He’s one of us.
He began with PRISM back in 1982 and took over as the play-by-play announcer in 1994. Along the way, he’s managed to turn a lot of garbage Sixers games into gold.
