    The Julius Erving-George McGinnis-World B. Free 76ers were supposed to have buried the Trail Blazers, led by that hippie center named Bill Walton, but the series was 2-2 coming back to the Spectrum in Philly. Surely, Game 5 would be where the 76ers demonstrated their dominance.

    It didn't happen. Portland played smart, its M.O., and Philly played dumb, its M.O., and Walton grabbed 20 defensive rebounds as the Blazers, playing team ball, overcame the brilliance of Erving (37 points). Portland took the title with a Game 6 win back in Portland, and Walton took off his shirt and celebrated with the crowd, an oft-played NBA moment.

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.
