Daryl Morey got what he wanted, and now it’s time for the Philadelphia 76ers to prove whether or not they are ready to contend. Morey held firm with his demands for mercurial star Ben Simmons, and he was finally able to snag a better player with the acquisition of James Harden. The Sixers had to trade Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first-round picks to the Nets for Harden, but now they have two superstars with Harden and Joel Embiid. Philly didn’t look great in last year’s playoffs, only winning one series before losing to the Miami Heat in six games, yet hopes are high with Embiid and Harden having time to build chemistry.

Joel Embiid has surprised everyone by managing to stay relatively healthy over the last five seasons. Embiid has played 50 games or more in five straight years, and that’s great news for this fanbase considering he is one of the most dominant big men in the NBA. Embiid had arguably his best year yet in 2021-22, averaging 30.6 PPG and 11.7 RPG while making over 37% of his threes for the second straight year.

The big question for the Sixers though is what they will get out of Harden. There’s no denying his talent, but his lack of interest in conditioning during the offseason has frustrated his last two teams. Harden is one of the best players at creating offense, averaging 30.6 PPG, 7.1 RPG, and 10.5 APG in 21 games with Philly last season, but his laissez-faire approach on defense coupled with his lack of stamina is an issue.

Philadelphia added P.J. Tucker to help on defense this offseason, but Tucker is 37 and not the same player he was in the past. Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey are solid players too, yet the lack of depth is a huge red flag. The Sixers cannot afford any of their starters to go down, as this figures to be a very weak bench.

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.
