Members of those great Philadelphia 76ers teams of the late 70's to mid 80's are dropping like flies. First Chocolate Thunder and now Moses Malone, who died at age 60. A great rebounder and scorer, we famously promised in 1983 that the 76ers would go "four, four and four" in their playoff rounds to the championship. He was only off by one loss. Since deaths sometimes occur in threes, if I were Doctor J, I would see my Doctor immediately and double my life insurance. Moses, RIP!
