6abc's Jim Gardner rings bell at Philadelphia 76ers game

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Action News' own Jim Gardner rang the model Liberty Bell before Friday's Philadelphia 76ers - Dallas Mavericks game.

"He's a Philly legend, I mean, just like Dr. J, and Wilt, and Charles Barkley, you know, Jim Gardner is synonymous with Philadelphia. And that's what our franchise is all about - celebrating what's great about Philadelphia," said 76ers President, Chris Heck.

The team says the bell represents the unity and passion of Philadelphians.

The 76ers lost to the Mavericks 98-117.
