Philadelphia 76ers Details
The Sixers organization actually began in upstate New York, where the team was originally known as the Syracuse Nationals. When they moved to eastern Pennsylvania in 1963, the team changed its name to represent the year the Declaration of Independence was signed in Philadelphia’s Independence Hall (keeping with the theme: their G-League team, the 87ers, is named for the year the Constitution was first ratified).
The team has won two championships in Philadelphia. All-time-great Wilt Chamberlain led the 76ers to their first title in 1967, and Julius Irving—legendary for his signature slam dunks—and NBA MVP Moses Malone took the Sixers in 1983 to their second championship. The 76ers last made the finals in 2001, when the best Sixers team of the Allen Iverson era was the only team to beat the Lakers during the entire tournament. The Sixers would ultimately lose in five games.
It’s been a process in Philly, and the Sixers of today hope it’s time to start seeing results. Former GM Sam Hinkie asked fans to “trust the process,” and for a long time, “the process” meant a lot of losing. At their lowest points, the Sixers lost an NBA record 26 consecutive games in one season in 2014, and they won only ten games for the entire 2015-16 season, leading to a last place finish.
But things are finally looking up in Philadelphia. Joel Embiid dominated his rookie season and was a serious contender for rookie of the year even though he only played in 31 games. That last place season earned the Sixers a first overall pick, and Ben Simmons should be ready to play after sitting out a season due to injury. And with pieces to spare from The Process years, the Sixers traded up to first overall in the 2017 draft to choose Markelle Fultz. Add in second-rookie-of-the-year candidate Dario Saric and solid pieces like T.J. McConnell and Robert Covington, and the young 76ers look to have a chance to compete.
