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's shorthand, that he expected the Sixers to sweep each of the three series they would need to play in order to win a championship.

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's 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. Readers 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 thirty-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.

*The next day Tails woke up and started getting ready for school. Cream woke up a little later then Tails*
Cream- Why didn't you wake me up Tails?
Tails- Cream, I know you love school but your sick. You need to stay home. Your mother saided she will be picking you up in a little while okay. Take it easy next time Cream.*Tails was acting a little uneasy before he lefted. Cream got up annoyed with herself that she didn't tell Tails how she really felt about him. She got up and was about to walk out the front door and wait for her mom when something caught her eye. It was Tails's computer and it was still on and on his Facebook. Cream tried to forget about the matter but she couldn't. She walked right up to the computer and looked at Tails's Facebook. When she saw it it turned her blood ice cold. Only yesterday it saided that Tails had been talking Sally. It scared her for some reason. She loked at their conversention.*(on computer)
Sally- I know something about your friend.
Tails- Yea and guess what. I don't care. Keep it to yourself you gossip-spreder.
Sally- Don't be like that Tails. I think you want to know this.
Tails- And maybe I don't want to. You don't know me.
Sally- I'm sure the smartest boy in school would want to know who has a crush on him.*It took Tails a while to answer this*
Tails- If it one of your friends Sally there is no way in h.ell that I will go out with them.
Sally- My friends? They go more for the popular kids. You should know that Tails. Anyway the person I'm talking about is someone your already friends with.
Tails- And your telling me this why?
Sally- I just like to help people out.
Tails- One that's a lie. Two if this person did have a crush on me I'm sure she would of told me herself!
Sally- Fine. Whatever Tails. Have it your way but remember I don't lie all the time. *they both log off. Cream checked the time of their convertion. It was 5:03 yesterday, only a few uminutes before Cream came. Her fear had been reaziled. Sally was telling Tails, her crush what she really felt about him. He when to school so Sally could tell him there! If he founded out about her feelings he might not want to talk to her, or see her, or even want her around. Cream felt sick to her stomach at the thought. Her mom pulled up and honk once then twice. Cream walked outside tears streming down her face*
Vanilla- Cream? Cream! What's wrong dear?
Cream- Oh mom! Sally! She....she...
Vanilla- Oh no. Not her again.*Cream and her mom had a lot of history with Sally. Her mom will call the school to complain but they never do a thing about Sally or her friends* Hush now Cream. I told you to ingore the girl whatever she does.
Cream- I know!*sniffes* but....but....she knows!
Vanilla- Knows what?
Cream- My secret!*more tears run down her cheeks*
Vanilla- Oh Cream. I wish I could help but you know I can't, the school won't listen to me.
Vanilla- Did you tell Tails yet?
Cream- No. When I tried to my throat got l dry and my mind went blank. Tails thought I was sick.
Vanilla- Oh dear. Cream next time you face him ask yourself this. Do you want him to find out you have a crush on him or would it be better if you told him yourself?
Cream- Yes mother.
Vanilla- Come on let's go home.*As Cream and Vanilla walked home Cream was thinking to herself. "Even by the time I do face him again he may already know"*

An enjoyable read, particularly if you are / were a Sixer fan during that period. Thoroughly enjoyed the insight on the whole Sixer organization during that time when they were aspiring to become NBA Champs and what it took for them to become one.Was this review helpful?
