The 76ers Honor Part Of The 1982-83 Champs

10 Mar

The Sixers honored former GM Pat Williams, G Franklin Edwards, C Clemon Johnson, C Earl Cureton, F Reggie Johnson, and current coach and former All-Star guard Maurice Cheeks.

I know Andrew Toney refuses to have anything to do with the Sixers, but why were the rest of the guys not there?   Any guesses?  Only think I could think of is that the Sixers wouldn’t pay flights in…but one dude came from freakin’ Alaska, so I highly doubt that.

    was Barkley part of that team as a rookie or was that a year later?

    Barkley didn’t start till 84-85, so he played with a lot of those guys but was not on that team.

    Thanks Mike.

    TRT – Barkley is one of those ‘greats’ who never won a title.
