He had great teammates like Larry Kenon, Bobby Jones, George McGinnis, Moses, Maurice Cheeks, and Andrew Toney, but they all had the Doc too
AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY MOMENT December 8, 1999: Houston Rockets forward Charles Barkley’s storied career came to an end in Philadelphia, when he attempted to block a shot by the Sixers’ Tyrone Hill. Barkley, who scored 23,755 points (13th in NBA history) and grabbed 12,545 rebounds (14th in NBA history), tore the left quadriceps tendon away from the kneecap in the first quarter of Houston's 83-73 loss to Philadelphia. After the game, Barkley held a news conference and paid tribute to former teammates Julius Erving, Maurice Cheeks, Andrew Toney and Bobby Jones, who Barkley said initiated him in the ways of the NBA in his early years with the 76ers. Barkley stated "I guess the big fella in the sky wanted me to finish right where I started," Barkley would return to play token minutes in the last game of the regular season, which would then be the final game of his career.
My top 5 favorite Sixers of all time..1. Andrew Toney 2. Allen Iverson 3. Maurice Cheeks 4. Julius Erving. 5. Bobby Jones
Just watching some old footage of Andrew "The Boston Strangler" Toney on youtube. Possibly the greatest nickname ever for an athlete. On a team with Doc, Moses, Bobby Jones and Maurice Cheeks, he was the guy that really scared the *** out of other teams. Absolutely deadly in the clutch and we'd be talking about him as one of the all-time great shooting guards if it weren't for injuries. A *** shame.
Watching the Sixers play the Celtics and *** Stockton doing the game reminds me of good times. Maurice Cheeks, Andrew Toney, Bobby Jones, Doc, and Moses. oh and being in 9th grade...
Celtics are down 5, but you can't be scared because Dr. J, Moses Malone, Andrew Toney, Bobby Jones, and Maurice Cheeks are not walking through that door!
Big ups to Buckeye supreme, Evan Turner and the Illadelph Sixers. They might not get any further and they did struggle with a severely handicapped Bulls squad, but I think they're working their way back to revelence. I think this young Philly squad has a lot of upside and a bright future. My favorite NBA franchise while growing up ( Julius " Dr J." Erving, George McGinnis, Henry Bibby, Daryl "Chocolate Thunder" Dawkins, Doug Collins, Lloyd "World B." Free, Bobby Jones, Maurice Cheeks, Caldwell Jones, Steve Mix, Moses Malone, Andrew "The Boston Strangler" Toney, Charles Barkley, Rick Mahorn, Johnny Dawkins, Munte Bol, Hersey Hawkins, Alan "Bubbachuck" "The Answer" Iverson ) might just be back. HOLLA!
Of course! Been a 76ers fan since the days of Dr. J, Moses Malone, Maurice Cheeks, Bobby Jones and the 5th starter (?)
Sixers made the playoffs. Basketball for a few more weeks. Sure miss Dr. J, Moses Malone, Bobby Jones, Andrew Toney, and Maurice Cheeks!
They have won it all though last time was in 83 w/ Malone, Julius, Maurice Cheeks, Bobby Jones, etc.
