Zumoff's favorite moments with the Sixers

DURING HIS 19 seasons as the 76ers' TV play-by-play man, Marc Zumoff has seen the good, the bad, the ugly, the uglier, and the even more ugly than that. So, it made sense to ask him to list some personal favorite events and players from his time behind the microphone:

* Greatest shooter: "Dana Barros. Still holds the NBA record with 89 consecutive games with at least one three-point field goal, which he set with the Sixers in '94-95 and the next year with Boston."

* Most interesting coaching tenure: "John Lucas. Two years, 34 players and 122 losses, but Luke always kept it interesting and fun."

* Favorite game: "May 13, 1999. The first home playoff game in 8 years and the first at Wells Fargo Center. Allen Iverson had an NBA-record 10 steals and the Sixers beat Orlando in a pivotal Game 3 en route to a series upset. I can still hear the crowd."

  • * Most surprising season: "2012. Sixty-six games due to the lockout. A bench player [Lou Williams] leads the team in scoring. Derrick Rose goes down as the Sixers beat Chicago in the first round of the playoffs, then take Boston to seven in the conference semis."

    * Greatest player: "Allen Iverson. The use of the boxing phrase 'pound-for-pound' has become hackneyed, but take a look at his body of work and there's a lot of truth to it."
