Tales from the Philadelphia '76ers Locker Room: A Collection of the Greatest Sixers Stories from the 1982-83 Championship Season | [Pat Williams, Gordon Jones]

Tales from the Philadelphia '76ers Locker Room: A Collection of the Greatest Sixers Stories from the 1982-83 Championship Season

The Sixers won 65 games and an NBA championship in 1982-83, still one of the finest seasons in NBA history. It was Moses Malone who, in the days before the playoffs, gave the team its battle cry. Asked by coach Billy Cunningham how he thought things would go in the playoffs, Moses said, "Fo’, fo’, fo’,” - meaning, in Moses' shorthand, that he expected the Sixers to sweep each of the three series they would need to play in order to win a championship.

Audible Editor Reviews

Award-winning narrator Richard Allen's genial performance brings out the pleasures of this collection of stories by former 76ers general manager Pat Williams. Allen zones in on the sentiments behind each anecdote, from Billy Cunningham's crankiness with the media to rookie Andrew Toney's casual - and successful - attempt to make Dr. J give him more room to go one-on-one.

NBA fans will enjoy learning intimate details behind the 1983 team that had one of the greatest collections of basketball talent ever assembled.

Publisher's Summary

The 30th-anniversary edition of a collection celebrating the greatest '76ers team to hit the court - newly updated!

The Sixers won 65 games and an NBA championship in 1982-83, still one of the finest seasons in NBA history. It was Moses Malone who, in the days before the playoffs, gave the team its battle cry. Asked by coach Billy Cunningham how he thought things would go in the playoffs, Moses said, "Fo’, fo’, fo’,” - meaning, in Moses' shorthand, that he expected the Sixers to sweep each of the three series they would need to play in order to win a championship.

In this newly revised edition of Tales from the Philadelphia '76ers Locker Room, sports maverick Pat Williams teams up with writer Gordon Jones to capture a behind-the-scenes look at this legendary season. With wit and candor, Williams and Jones relive the unforgettable victories as well as the wrenching disappointments and painstaking efforts to rebuild that preceded that season.

Listeners are reintroduced to Julius "Dr. J" Erving, the beloved but unfulfilled superstar; Billy Cunningham, the hard-driven coach; Harold Katz, the relentless owner; and Moses Malone, the final piece of the title puzzle. Joined by a star-studded cast of players, they rampaged through the league, leaving a trail of devastated teams in their wake.

With a 30-year legacy that has yet to be surpassed by any '76ers team, Tales from the Philadelphia '76ers Locker Room is both a celebration of past glory and a promise of future victory to the loyal fans of the '76ers nation.
