See what Andrew Salciunas found in The Audio Vault today. Every day on The Anthony Gargano Show, Andrew dives into the Vault to pull out some Audio relevant to the day. It may be famous birthdays, things that happened on this day in history, or more. Today, they went back to the 1983 Finals, which closed out 40 years ago today.
It has been exactly 40 years since the Sixers last won an NBA Championship. On this day in 1983, the Sixers finished their sweep of the Lakers to win a ring. Dr. J finally got a ring, thanks in large part to the MVP Mose Malone helping carry the team over that stumbling block for the Sixers. Mose Malone promised “Fo, Fo, Fo.” They very nearly lived up to that. It was more like “Fo, Fi, Fo,” as Malone later put it. They lost just one game on their way to the only NBA Championship for the Sixers during the Dr. J era.
So today in The Audio Vault, Andrew played some of the sounds from that game 4. Highlights of Mose Malones’ 24 pt 23 rebound night. The Lakers making a furious push at one point. Bobby Jones shooting the Sixers back into the game. Lakers taking a late lead. The Sixers storming back again. And then of course the finals moments where the Sixers win the game to finish the sweep and become NBA Champions.
