PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — T.J. McConnell might not have known, but he’s a hero for a large group of Sixers fans.

McConnell was a special guest on the first ever live Rights To Ricky Sanchez, with hosts Spike Eskin and Michael Levin at Underground Arts in Philadelphia.

The 500-ish fans chanted “T.J.” all day and went bananas when re-watching McConnell’s buzzer beater against the Knicks.

McConnell also called Joel Embiid the “second coming of Christ” and all but guaranteed the Sixers would make the playoffs this season.
