Re: team of the 80's
I don't think I can really argue against rating Barkley above King, but one thing to bear in mind is that Philly had a quite decent team throughout the 80s. Even after the old guys from the championship team moved on, Sixers were a good team. What King did - when he was at his best - was carrying a crap team by himself. I'be only seen a couple of games from the 80s Knicks before Ewing went there, and I'm sure those were some of the best ones from King, but he was awesome!
