Moses Malone became a restricted free agent after the 1981–82 season, and he signed an offer sheet with the Philadelphia 76ers on September 2, Houston then exercised its right of first refusal and matched the offer, only to trade Malone to the Sixers on September 15 for Caldwell Jones and a 1983 first-round draft choice.
Malone (who teamed up with Dr. J) went on to win a championship with the 76ers in 1983.
So the question is . . will history repeat itself in 2011 with Lebron in Miami?
Greek One. . . he doesnt have the heart I agree but he sure has a big bank account! I think this whole thing was pure BS . .and I am glad it is over. . I just wish NY could bring back some basketball .. I miss it. .
