The most underrated Sixers player ever: Andrew Toney

Article Summary:

When fans think of the best Sixers players of all time, their minds may go straight to big men.

Imagine a Sixers player being known as “The Boston Strangler” today for his playoff heroics against the Celtics. Toney similarly led the Sixers to a Finals appearance in 1982 with the way he balled out during the ’82 ECF.

Toney, unlike any Sixers player of my lifetime, helped the franchise actually hoist the Larry O’Brien Trophy.

I leave Sixers fan with the statement from 1980s Celtics player Danny Ainge:

“I feared Andrew Toney even more than Michael Jordan.”
