Oh Brother!

Posted: May 20, 2011

IT'S ALL RELATIVE

 If the Sixers end up with a Morris, they should hope they don't follow the Phillies' footsteps when it comes to brothers. Here is possibly the most prolific wrong-brother syndrome in sports history:

RIGHT BROTHER ....... PHILS' BROTHER

 Joe DiMaggio ........ Vince

Greg Maddux ......... Mike

George Brett ........ Ken

Joe Torre ........... Frank

Todd Worrell ........ Tim

George Bell ......... Juan

Jason Giambi ........ Jeremy

B.J. Surhoff ........ Rick

Al Leiter ........... Mark

Stan Coveleski ...... Harry

Bob Meusel .......... Irish

SIXERS' BROTHERS

The Sixers have a brief history with twin brothers, and it isn't bad. Tom Van Arsdale, who played for the Sixers, was as accomplished as Dick, and Harvey Grant had nearly the career his brother Horace had. Here are some other former Sixers with brothers in the NBA:

SIXER ....... BROTHER(S)

Caldwell Jones .... Charles, Major, Wil

John Q. Trapp ..... George

Billy Melchionni .. Gary

Albert King ....... Bernard

Bud Ogden ......... Ralph

Mike Price ........ Jim

Jay Vincent ....... Sam
