There is a treasure trove of vintage footage of players like Wilt Chamberlain and Dr. J in action. Also covered are the classic, individual rivalries, like Chamberlain vs. Boston Celtics' Bill Russell (who jokes, "I never could stop him. But I could put up some speed bumps. That's the best I could come up with."), and franchise ones, like the long-standing grudge matches between the Celtics and the Lakers. Back in the day, these teams played tough, grueling matches with heartbreaking defeats and exhilarating wins on both sides.
Also included are brief looks at key seasons in the team's history, such as the 1966-67 season when they defeated the Celtics and the 1982-83 season when they won the championship. There are also mini-profiles of some of their legendary alumni, like Dr. J and his simply breathtaking style of play. Some of the shots he made seemingly defied the odds (and gravity).
Fans of the Sixers will not be disappointed by this box set. It features a nice mix of team history and vintage games that will have one waxing nostalgic for the glory days when the team was one of the greatest in the NBA.
The "1982 Eastern Conference Finals, Game 7" allows one to watch, in its entirety, the exciting game where the Sixers defeated the Celtics in Boston to go onto the NBA finals.
The "1983 NBA Finals, Game 4" is a very exciting and highly emotional game where Dr.Read more ›
After I saw that no complete games were included of the 67 team, I was disappointed, but decided to buy the collection anyway. I figured that since it was a team that many people consider to be the best ever, there would at the very least be some detailed account of their championship run ranging from half an hour to an hour in length. Instead, there are a total of little more than 10 minutes of footage regarding the 1967 team scattered throughout this collection, and much less than that when you consider how much footage is repeated (different features on the team show the same interviews and highlights...I must have seen Wilt Chamberlain shoot the same finger roll over Nate Thurmond at least three times).
While it is possible that the NBA lost some of it's old film and simply had very little material to work with (which may explain why there are no complete games of the 1967 team), it is still inexcusable and they definitely could have done more. MUCH more time is devoted in this collection to the Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson eras (which produced no championships and were mostly mediocre). It shouldn't be this way.
With that said, I found the coverage of the early 80s teams to be pretty thorough.Read more ›
The first disc is basically old material already released during the VHS days. Stuff you get include 76ers A History, rivalries with the Lakers and Celtics, 66-67/75-76/82-83/00-01 seasons, today's team, and Sixers greats(Wilt Chamberlain, Julius Erving, Darryl Dawkins, Maurice Cheeks, Moses Malone, Charles Barkley, and Allen Iverson).
When you see clips from the 66-67 season, its amazing how much the racial make-up of the league had changed in a few short years. It's funny watching highlights from the 82-83 season. The way the players and fans looked(uniform, clothes, hair, makeup, etc) ranges from funny to frightening. The 00-01 season was all about Allen Iverson along with then Sixers president Pat Croche. Croche is one excitable dude.
I thoroughly enjoyed the 82 Conference Finals game 7 at the Celtics along with the game 4 sweep of the Showtime Lakers in 83. I have never seen these games before, and although I am not a Sixers fan, I still love watching the Dr J Sixers performing at their highest. Funny how a player would give an opposing player a hand to pick him up. Haven't seen that since I started watching the NBA in the early 90's.
The 1990 Semifinal game 3 between the Bull and Sixers was from a cable channel called Prism in Philly. Those were the days when the player's support shorts would show from underneath their regular team shorts. Disc 5 is game 1 between A.I.'s Sixers and the Kobe/Shaq Lakers.Read more ›
