For some reason I tend to forget Hornacek played for the Sixers. ... Understandable if it came at beginning or late in career, but it was smack-dab in the middle.
While I can't say I remember any of his time there, I always remember because he was the key piece in the Charles Barkley trade so I always remember PHI

I will always remember my brother finding out about the trade:

"Hornacek got traded to Philly. That will be good for him playing with Barkley!...crap, he got traded for Barkley."

Try the assist list.

Passing Jeff in career assists would be impressive. Very long healthy career of starter minutes.

Steals is an area where Tyrese could really blow everybody away. He’s been moving between 6th and 3rd in nba all season.

Hornacek probably could have played 3-4 more years than he did. He retired pretty early.

Phoenix was close to getting to the finals, had to give up Hornacek to get Barkley. Barkley got Phoenix to the finals, but I (biasedly, perhaps) felt they missed Hornacek's shooting.

Easy to forget Hornacek's time in Philly, because Philadelphia didn't have much besides Hornacek after that trade. It sucked at the time, but worked out in the end with him ending up as an integral piece on a very good Utah team.
