(NOTE: I will be working at my new site in the next days, I hope I will be able to launch Sixers4guidos 2.0 soon, let’s say within the end of the month. Stay tuned, it’s gonna be a great, brand new blog)

Wilt Chamberlain becomes the first player to score 50 points in a game in the building (1967):
Sixers beat the Bucks in game 7 of the EC SemiFinals, the last game seven played at the Spectrum (1981). Check out “Thunder chocolate” Darryl Dawkins’ unbelievable dunk:
And finally check the girl’s boobs & t-shirt some Doc J’s highlights, a fantastic footage.
To conclude, a nice pic of one of the best Sixers ever (courtesy of this gallery by Sports Illustrated):

After recapping one of the most depressing games I’ve seen in a while, I just received an email that put the smile back on my (ugly) guido face.
