NBA Final 1983: Malone and Irving take Sixers to the top

por Roberto Anidos publicado en 1983 Angeles Lakers Decade 80 NBA Philadelphia Sixers

The 83 NBA was the ring of the Sixers led by a huge Moses Malone MVP. The Angeles Lakers didn’t have what it took to compete, and they lost with a crash (4-0). Irving and Toney joined the cause, and little served the good work of Magic or Abdul-Jabbar to try to avoid the sweep
