General | Latest Info

Philadelphia 76ers, American professional basketball team based in Philadelphia. The franchise has won three National Basketball Association championships and has advanced to the NBA finals on nine occasions. Often referred to simply as Sixers, team is the oldest franchise in the NBA and is the name of the 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia. The team was founded in 1939 in Syracuse, New York, as Nationals, but perhaps it was better known as simply Nats. The Nationals originally were independent team, unaffiliated with any professional Basketball League, but in 1946 they joined the National Basketball League. In 1949, the NBL merged with the Basketball Association of America to form the NBA, and the Nationals lost the inaugural NBA finals to the Minneapolis Lakers. After another finals loss in 1954, franchise won its first title the following season, behind the stellar play of forward-centre Dolph Schayes. Despite never missing the postseason in their 14 years in the NBA, Nationals were not a profitable team, and in 1963 they were sell, relocated to Philadelphia, and rename. Midway through the 1964-65 season, 76ers traded for centre Wilt Chamberlain, possibly the most dominant basketball player of all time. During the 1966-67 season, led by Chamberlain and a strong supporting roster that included guard Hal Greer and forward Billy Cunningham, 76ers posted the then-best regular-season record in League history and won their second NBA championship. The 76ers coach, Alex Hannum, left the team after the 1967-68 season to work closer to his family on the West Coast, and an unhappy Chamberlain demanded a trade. He was sent to the Lakers in the off-season, and the team failed to advance past the first round of the postseason in each of the next three seasons. The Sixers ' downward spiral continued through the early 1970s, and they reached an historic low when they finished the 1972-73 season with a record of 9-73. After returning to the play-offs and another first-round exit in 1976, Sixers decided to spend their way back to respectability, paying $3 million to the New York Nets of the American Basketball Association to acquire Julius Erving before the 1976-77 season. In his first year, Erving led the 76ers to the NBA finals, where they would lose to the Portland Trail Blazers in six games. The Sixers qualified for the play-offs in each of their 11 years in Philadelphia, which included three more trips to the NBA finals. The most memorable of these postseason berths took place after the 1982-83 regular season. That Sixers team was so overpowering that centre Moses Malone guaranteed an undefeated postseason run before the play-offs begin. Philadelphia almost lived up to Malone's bold statement, losing only one play-off game en route to capturing the team's third NBA championship. In 1984, the 76ers banked forward Charles Barkley, who became the face of the team after Erving and Malone left Philadelphia later in the decade.

Bottom line: three-time ABA MVP, Julius Erving joined the NBA and 76ers at the age of 26 in 1976. His numbers didnt match what he did in the ABA, but Dr. J still won NBA MVP and led the team to four Finals appearances. His graceful play on court and his dignified manner off court made him one of the faces of the NBA before the arrivals of Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Ervings teams never had a losing record and made the postseason in every year of his career. He also set a record that can be tied but never beaten as he made the All-Star Team, either with NBA or ABA, in 100 percent of the 16 seasons he played in.

The Philadelphia 76ers are a historical team from their move from Syracuse as Nationals to Philadelphia to become 76ers. In their storied history, they have had many great players. Their All-Time lineup can be debate, but here is what some may feel could be All-Time roster: Maurice Cheeks was the backbone to the 1982-1983 NBA Championship Team. He was one who ran everything and got it all going. Mo never looked to getting points in his day as a player, although he could. He would rather have get assist on plays. That's what doctor J Julius Erving and Big Moses Malone were for. Mo is also one of the smartest players to ever come through the organization. He is also the current coach for the 76ers. Hal Greer was a long - range shooter before there was such a thing. Greer was fortunate enough to have played along side the 76ers great Wilt Chamberlain. When the double team concept was invent, greet benefited greatly from playing with Wilt. Opposing teams would double Team Wilt and he would kick it out to Hal Greer for a long - range shot. Greer is one of the best pure shooters in Nationals / 76ers history. If you know anything about the man they call doc or Dr. J, then there's no commentary needed on him. Doc is one of 50 greatest players ever in the NBA. He was arguably one of the most entertaining players to ever fly through air in the NBA. Players like Dr. J is why the American Basketball Association created the Slam Dunk Contest. He is an icon in Philadelphia Basketball with signature afro. Prior to the 1982-1983 season, 76ers had been in either Eastern Conference Finals or NBA Finals but could not win it all. They had no answer for quality big men of the Celtics in the east or the Lakers in the west. Along come free-agent power forward Moses Malone. Moses was a strong dominating presence in paint. He would use his power inside as well as grab rebounds on both offensive and defensive ends. Big Mo was key to their 82-83 Championship team. Wilt is arguably the greatest player to ever step foot on hardwood. Wilt was the most dominating player of his era. He was 7' 1 tall and 275 lbs. Chamberlain is also one of 50 greatest players in NBA history. Chamberlain is a 2 time NBA champion, 4 time MVP, 13 Time NBA All-Star, 1972 NBA Finals MVP, 7 Time All-NBA First Team selection, 3 Time All-NBA Second Team selection, 2 Time All-Defensive Team selection, 1960 NBA Rookie of Year, 1960 All-Star Game MVP, NBA's 50 Anniversary Team member, NBA's 35 Anniversary Team member. I think that is enough reasons as to why Wilt is in my starting center. Similar to Maurice Cheeks, Eric Snow is one of the smarter players to ever come through the 76ers organization.

Bottom line: native of Philadelphia, Wilt Chamberlain rewrote records books while at Overbrook High School and set the national High School scoring mark. Once he reached the NBA, Chamberlain played for both NBA teams in Philadelphia, First Warriors, who then relocated to San Francisco. And then the 76ers, who Chamberlain joined in his sixth NBA season. In his three full seasons with the 76ers, Chamberlain won the MVP award each year, led the league in rebounds and field-goal percentage each year, and won his seventh and final scoring title. He also helped bring the first NBA championship to the Sixers in 1967, as the team set an NBA record by winning 68 games. That team was only one of Chamberlains legendary career in which he defeated Bill Russells Celtics in the NBA playoffs.

Hal Greer spent his whole 15 year career on the 76ers. Greer has also played most minutes, and games in '6ers jersey. He Hold record for most career points as a 76er, and he was a second-round draft pick! Answer, may be regarded as the best 76er of all-time. Iverson took the '6ers to the Finals in 2001, and he's one of only four people to do so! Dr. J, is a 76ers legend.

Wilt won the 76ers ring, and Wilt is also fifth in total rebounds as a 76er. Cheeks hold record for most apg and most assists as Warrior / 76er.

After Wilt left in '68, Billy led his team to a 55 - win season, solidifying his spot in 76ers history. Moses won MVP, championship ship, and Finals MVP with the 76ers. Malone and Erving were a dynamic duo. Dawkins, also known as Chocolate Thunder, was known for his thunderous dunks.

Nearly two weeks ago, fine folks at 2K Games announced that NBA 2K18 would feature All-Time teams for each of the league's 30 franchises. Our very own Kyle Neubeck took a stab at predicting what the Philadelphia 76ers ' starting lineup would look like, and his list was pretty spot-on. The 2K Games ended conjecture and speculation earlier today by revealing the rosters for the 30 All-Time teams. As expect, there were few surprises when it come to the Sixers' list: this selection doesn't need much explanation. Sure. You could argue that Iverson was technically a shooting guard, opening up PG spot for someone else, but any All-Time starting lineup of the Philadelphia 76ers without Iverson would be flat-out wrong. Greer probably doesn't get enough respect from the younger generation of Sixers' fans, but the 6-2 shooting guard was undoubtedly one of the NBA's best perimeter players during the 1960s. During his 15-Year career with the Sixers / Syracuse Nationals, Greer-who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1982-make seven All-NBA teams and was selected to 10 consecutive All-Star Games. Dr. J was a perennial All-Star during his 11-Year run with the 76ers, and he ended his career in the top-5 in virtually every offensive category in Sixers' franchise history. Sadly, Erving spent the early part of his prime years in ABA, but he still blesses us with a lifetime's worth of incredible memories. Kangaroo Kid was selected by the 76ers in the first round of the 1965 NBA Draft and was an integral part of the franchise during the late 1960s / early 1970s. As a 6-6 small forward, Cunningham averaged 20 / 10 / 4 during his nine seasons in Philadelphia, and was named to the NBA's 50 Anniversary All-Time Team in 1996. Chamberlain only played for the Philadelphia 76ers for three and half seasons-his first stint in the city as a professional came as a member of the Philadelphia Warriors. That say, big Dipper won three MVPs and led the Sixers to the 1967 NBA Championship during those 3. 5 seasons. So there's that. This might seem a bit odd at first glance, but Andre Iguodala has a pretty solid case for place on this list. On franchise's All-Time leaderboard, Iguodala is third in three-pointers, fourth in steals, sixth in assists and ninth in points. Add in fact that he was one of the league's better wing defenders, and it's not hard to see how he made the cut. This one is a bit of a head scratcher, primarily because Hersey Hawkins only played in Philadelphia for five seasons. But don't sleep on Hawk: 6-3 SG out of Bradley average 19. 0 points per game as a sixer, and was named to the 1991 Eastern Conference All-Star Team. How 1977 Sixers with George McGinnis, Erving, Doug Collins, World B. Free and Darryl Dawkins didn't win an NBA title remain one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in NBA history.
