The 76ers have a long list of questionable and just flat out bad past trades. There’s the Wilt trade for Jerry Chambers, ARchie Clark and Darrall Imhoff. Moses Malone for Cliff Robinson (not the headband one) and Jeff Ruland. Then there’s the Barkley one for Andrew Lang, Tim Perry and Jeff Hornacek trade in 1992.

But the biggest loss in 76ers franchise history happened 2 years before the Barkley trade and that’s when they lost The Fresh Prince to Bel Air.  You can blame the (incredibly underrated) group Full Force for bullying the Prince and his mom for sending him away.

Earlier this week, the Phoenix Suns were messing with the 76ers, via Twitter, about the whereabouts of the 45 year old Prince.  Philly responded with a funny reference to the trade and then acknowledged that it took them 23 years to “fill the void.”

Let’s just hope Nerlens Noel can do this.
