Dr. J was often at his best during the playoffs, putting up numbers that place him among the all-time greats. It took him several tries to win a championship, though, as his Sixers could not find a way to best both the Celtics and Lakers in the same season. Like with many star players, Erving's lack of a bona fide star to help ease the scoring burden was a chief cause of the Sixers' struggles. After acquiring reigning MVP Moses Malone prior to the 1982-83 season, there was no stopping this juggernaut squad, as Erving poured in 18.4 points and grabbed 7.6 rebounds per game as his team stormed through the playoffs with a 12-1 record en route to a title.
