All-Time Philadelphia 76ers Starting Five76ers, BREAKING NEWS, Eastern Conference, NBA, News Wednesday, May 11th, 2011
This is one of those topics where my brain and heart collide, I’ve been summoned to submit my All-Time Philadelphia 76’ers starting five. I could go the conventional way and put in players that I haven’t seen (I’m 39) and that would be somewhat like cheating but I think I’ve covered enough ground with the Sixers to floor a reputable squad
So here we go.
In Dave Zinkoff’s voice:
Moses Malone/Center: I know, I know. Wilt Chamberlain should be here and deservedly so, but since I only saw Moses play he goes here and if I place Wilt at center Malone would be my power forward.
Julius (The Doctor) Errrrvvvinnnggg Small Forward: There aren’t many players in the history of American sports that can say that they carried two professional leagues for a period of time.
Andrew (The Boston Strangler) Toney/Shooting Guard: I know, I should probably be placing Allen Iverson here, but I saw this man in his prime and he gave the League fits. Any stories that they tell you about this man – believe all of them.
Allen (The Answer) Iverson/Point Guard: Breaks my heart not to put Cheeks here. Maybe I should’ve replaced Toney – I just can’t see this starting five without Iverson, And granted he’s not a natural point, but Malone and Barkley would get their touches – they would see to it.
Let the debate begin.
