A list of the best Philadelphia 76ers of all time. Formed in 1946 as one of the charter members of the NBA, the Syracuse Nationals were an instant success. The team had some of the best early NBA players on its roster. The Nationals won three Eastern Conference Championships and one NBA championship. In 1963, the team moved to Philadelphia where it was renamed the 76ers. Since the team's move, the 76ers have had some of the biggest names and best players on its roster. In 1964, Philadelphia acquired one of the greatest centers of all time in Wilt Chamberlain. The "Big Dipper," along with Hall of Famers Billy Cunningham, and Hal Greer (three of the greatest players in franchise history), led the team to its second NBA title in 1967.
After a period of decline, the 76ers made another shrewd move, this time acquiring the legendary Julius Erving, one of the greatest small forwards of all time. Dr. J, along with other 76er greats like Moses Malone and Maurice Cheeks led one of the greatest teams in basketball history to another championship in 1983. Malone's famous "Fo, Fo, Fo" predicted of Philadelphia sweeping every series was almost realized when the team only lost one game. The team continued to have success with superstars like Charles Barkley and Allen Iverson on its roster, two of the franchise's greatest players.This is the list of the best Philadelphia 76ers of all time.
