The Philadelphia 76ers are an NBA franchise based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania playing in the NBA’s Eastern Conference Atlantic Division. Founded in 1946 as the Syracuse Nationals, the Sixers are one of the oldest teams in the NBA and one of only eight to survive the League’s rocky first decade. Playing the first 17 years under the Syracuse National name in upstate New York, a relocation and name change in 1963 gave birth to the present day location and team name. The Sixers play their home games at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Philadelphia 76ers have a long, rich history of success; one that started with their first NBA Championship title in 1955 as the Nationals. They have since gone on to claim to more Championships, one in the 1966-67 season and the other in the 1982-83 season. These incredible wins would not have been possible, though, without the All-star talent that has been found on the Sixers roster. From Wilt chamberlain and Julius Erving to Charles Barkley, Allen Iverson and Dikembe Mutombo, some of the greatest NBA players of all time have worn the signature red, white and blue of the Sixers. Now led by the bright All-Stars of tomorrow, such as Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid, the Sixers are back on the hunt for their next NBA Championship title.
