Anthony Gargano and I go back a long way, to the days when we were both covering the New York Mets at the old Shea Stadium — Gargano for the New York Post; myself for the Associated Press. Anthony has moved on to a glamorous career as a radio host, including his current gig with Fox Sports Radio.

Not only will you get some historical perspective in this podcast on the personal hell long-time Philadelphia 76ers fans have gone through coming out of blockbuster trades, but you’ll also hear a story about a baseball player — a well-known one– who used to carry a photograph in his wallet of his favorite gun.

The thing with Gargano is: He is a Philly guy, through and through. He remembers what happened when the Sixers traded Charles Barkley at the peak of his career; and the time — and this one was worse — when they sent Moses Malone and two No. 1 picks to Washington for Jeff Ruland, who played all of 5 games for the Sixers before a knee injury forced him to retire.
