One of the greatest defenders in NBA history, Bobby Jones played eight of his 10 NBA seasons for the 76ers. He was named to the NBA's All-Defensive first team eight consecutive seasons from 1977-84 and was a second team selection in 1985. In 1983, he captured the NBA Sixth Man Award and helped lead the Sixers to the NBA championship. Jones played in the NBA All-Star Game on four occasions, twice as a member of the Denver Nuggets (1977 and 1978) and twice as a member of the Sixers (1981 and 1982). Jones, who was a first round draft choice (15th overall) of the Houston Rockets in the 1974 NBA Draft, began his professional career as a member of the ABA's Denver Nuggets. He was a member of the ABA All-Rookie team in 1985, an ABA All-Star in 1976 and a member of the ABA's All-Defensive Team in both 1975 and 1976. As a 76er, he totaled 6,585 points and 2,942 rebounds. He currently ranks third on the 76ers' all-time blocked shots list and owns the fourth best career field goal percentage in franchise history.
