MEDIA BUZZ: ESPN’s "SportsCenter" was among TV outlets picking up the story last night, with anchor Steve Levy saying, "Good job by the Philadelphia 76ers organization tonight. And after all of this, the final score didn't even matter." Levy later awarded the “Star of the Night” to Grow during the show's "3 Stars of the Night" segment. Levy said the Sixers are “losing on a regular basis by 40 points, or so it seems. Tonight they lost by 29, but in my book, the 76ers are winners" (“SportsCenter,” ESPN, 2/18). ESPN’s Kevin Connors said, "Great story in Philadelphia and a commendable job by that organization in what has been a tough year" (“NBA Coast to Coast,” ESPN2, 2/18).
