A Sixers Odyssey : Exploring the Forgotten Players of 76ers Yesteryear
by Dave Rueter




Overview -

"Dave, honey. Are you sitting down? We have to talk. Your dad and I have something to tell you."

"What is it, mom? Is everything alright? Are you getting divorced? Is it grandma?"

"No, no. Grandma's fine. But - well, there's no easy way to say this." Mom exhaled. "The Sixers just traded Charles Barkley for Jeff Hornacek, Andrew Lang, and Tim Perry."

That couldn't be right, I thought. She must've misheard.

"What about Kevin Johnson? Or Thunder Dan? And the picks? How many picks, mom?"

She shook her head, like she couldn't even believe the words that were about to come out of her mouth.

"No KJ or Majerle. No picks, sweetie."

-----

A Sixers Odyssey is a collection of 76 essays on forgotten players from the last thirty years. Why did everyone boo Kenny Payne on draft night? Where were you the night of the James Anderson Game?

Wait, Tom Chambers played one game for the Sixers?

Authored by a Philadelphian and former 76ers writer, A Sixers Odyssey combines personal memories with exhaustive research to highlight the other guys - the guys not named Charles Barkley or Allen Iverson. From Willie Burton's 53-point game to Jeff Ruland's run-in with a luggage cart, and countless stories in between, A Sixers Odyssey is a humorous journey through the good, the bad, and the forgotten.
