Philadelphia 76ers

http://www.nba.com/sixers

Home of many legends that have given us many unforgettable players throughout the course of the NBA, the 76ers were founded in 1946 but were known as the Syracuse Nationals. They changed the name to 76ers in 1963. During the time that they were known as the Nationals, they managed to win a title in 1955. Things were about to change for the better when they signed Wilt Chamberlain, one of the most dominant players in the league. The impact of Chamberlain would be felt right away and they kept improving each year. In the 1966-67 season, Philadelphia 76ers would end the reign of the Celtics and went on to defeat the Warriors, four games to two in the Finals to win their 2nd title. The 76ers would have another legendary team in the ’80s when Moses Malone decided to join forces with Maurice Cheeks and Julius Erving. The 1982-83 season was phenomenal for the 76ers as they won the title yet again, losing only one game in the playoffs. We can’t forget also the Allen Iverson era, where they reached the NBA Finals in 2001 and had to face the Los Angeles Lakers. However, they managed to only win one game in the Finals, and ultimately lost four games to one.
