May 31, 1983: It wasn't quite "fo' fo' fo'," but it came close -- on this day 29 years ago, Moses Malone (right), Julius Erving and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 of the NBA Finals, ending a 13-game romp toward the title. Because of that, we're guessing this photo shows coach Billy Cunningham wiping not sweat off Malone's brow, but champagne.
