List RulesPlease rank the players based only on their time with the 76ers

This list of the best Philadelphia 76ers of all time includes some of the most legendary names to ever play the game of basketball. When you think of all the amazing players who, at one time or another suited up for the 76ers, it's hard not to be in awe. Who do you think is the top Sixer ever? Vote for your favorites and re-rank this list in any order you want. Your rerank does affect the overall rankings!

Some of the top NBA players of all time played for the Philadelphia 76ers. Names like Julius Erving, Wilt Chamberlain and Charles Barkley come to mind immediately. Each of these great men wore a 76ers uniform -- some for longer than others (Barkley got his wish for a trade to Phoenix after eight seasons in Philly). Arguably, several of the best Philadelphia 76ers of all time could also be considered among the best overall athletes of all time, in any sport. Certainly, many are some of the greatest offensive players in NBA history, too. But who are 76ers' best players? Rank these Philadelphia basketball players so that we can finally have the answer we've been waiting for.
