From tank to title talk, 76ers primed for championship run
PHILADELPHIA (AP) Charles Barkley had a statue dedicated in his honor outside the 76ers' complex, the franchise for which he played the bulk of his Hall of Fame career - and later poked fun at as an analyst when the team tanked.
Billy Cunningham was Barkley's first NBA coach and joked the Sixers may never have drafted Sir Charles had Houston not tanked at the tail end of 1984 to increase the odds it could select Hakeem Olajuwon with the No. 1 pick. Sixers coach Brett Brown, trying to become the first coach to win the championship in Philadelphia since Cunningham in 1983, had some fun at Barkley's expense with the revelation.
"I can't believe (Houston) dumped games to get high draft picks," Brown said to laughter. "Can you believe that? Somebody trying to get high draft picks dumping games? I don't know what you're talking about."MORE
