First of all, the 76ers pregame show, a classic for me, because of those Philly accents. I was cracking up listening to those guys. But as far as this game, 1987 was a transition season for the 76ers. And 76ers fans might tell you it was the next chapter in the fall of the Philadelphia 76ers. After trading both Moses Malone and Terry Catledge, two solid big men with a lot of potential for them. In Moses’s case, I believe one of the top five centers of all-time. Trading Moses and Catledge to the Bullets for two guys who didn’t play much for the 76ers. Jeff Ruland, who was never the same after the 1985 season, when he was an All Star center. And Cliff Robinson who didn’t play much for the 76ers.
