The first thing everyone thinks of when they hear "Moses Malone" and "playoffs" is his famous "fo fo fo" prediction from 1982-83 of how many games the Sixers would need to get to the NBA Finals. His prediction almost came true (they did it in "fo five fo"), and Moses led the way as the 76ers swept the Lakers in the Finals and the burly center took home the MVP award. Moses was an absolute monster on the boards, particularly on the offensive end; for his playoff career, he averaged 5.6 offensive rebounds per game, pulling down an average of 15.8 per night during his one championship season in Philadelphia.
