Philadelphia 76ers 2024 NBA Championship Odds

The Philadelphia 76ers have advanced from the play-in round after a 105-104 win over the Miami Heat on Wednesday night. As a result, the 76ers will face the New York Knicks in the first round of the 2024 NBA Playoffs. Ironically, the 76ers may have the upper hand as the 7th seed against the 2nd seed New York Knicks. That is because Julius Randle is out of the lineup for New York while Joel Embiid has retired to the 76ers. Embiid makes Philadelphia an entirely different team when he is in the lineup. Some gamblers see the 76ers are a potential dark horse in the postseason.

Philadelphia 76ers History

The Philadelphia 76ers were not the first NBA team in the City of Brotherly Love. The Philadelphia Warriors were a BAA expansion team and won the very first BAA championship in 1947. They won the 1956 NBA Finals as well, but they moved across the country to become the Golden State Warriors at the end of the 1962 season. Philadelphia was only without a team for a year though as the Syracuse Nationals moved here and became the 76ers starting in 1963.

The 76ers were immediately competitive and won the 1967 NBA Finals behind the legendary Wilt Chamberlain. Wilt the Stilt averaged 24.1 PPG and 24.2 RPG that season, and he also led the team with 7.8 APG.

Philadelphia was one of the most entertaining teams in the league after buying Julius Erving’s rights from the New Jersey Nets after the Nets joined the NBA. Erving led the Sixers to the NBA Finals in his first season with his new team, and they ended up winning the East three more times before finally claiming their second championship in 1983. Erving and Moses Malone were an unstoppable tandem on the interior, while Mo Cheeks and Andrew Toney shined in their roles.

The franchise has not won a title since that point, but Philly did have a franchise player in the late 1990s and 2000s in Allen Iverson. The Answer was one of the most exciting players of his generation, but the Sixers were unable to put much of a team around him.
