Founded in 1946 and originally known as the Syracuse Nationals, the franchise relocated in 1963 and officially became the Philadelphia 76ers. During the 1964–1965 season, the Philadelphia 76ers traded for center Wilt Chamberlain—possibly the greatest basketball player in history. In 1967, Chamberlain led the team to an NBA Championship.
Chamberlain eventually went to the Lakers and the 76ers entered a downward spiral that continued through the early 1970s. Philadelphia 76ers Ticket Holders would see the team’s fortunes turn around after superstar Julius (“Dr. J”) Erving came on board in 1976. In 11 years, Erving would lead the 76ers to consistent post-season appearances, several Conference Finals wins, and a third NBA Championship in 1983.
In 1984, the Philadelphia 76ers drafted all-star Charles Barkley, who became the face of the team after Erving and Malone left Philadelphia later in the decade. A stellar individual performer, Barkley failed to lead the 76ers deep into the post-season and was traded to the Phoenix Suns in 1992.
At the start of the 2000s the young superstar Allen Iverson led the 76ers to the 2001 NBA Finals, but the franchise again lost to the Lakers. Iverson was traded away in 2006, and the Philadelphia 76ers Ticket Holders endured several years of middling play from the team.
In 2013, the 76ers hired Sam Hinkie as general manager, who instituted a radical long-term rebuilding strategy based on drafting injured players who would yield returns when healed. Hinkie’s idiosyncratic approach led to Philadelphia’s becoming one of the worst teams in the league. Hinkie resigned from the team in 2016 and the Philadelphia 76ers began a more traditional rebuilding program.
The Philadelphia 76ers play all home games at the Wells Fargo Center. Fans of the 76ers can get their tickets to see the historic team from Golden Tickets.
