Sports Team
    (1946- )
    Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    Formerly known as the Syracuse Nationals (1946-63)
    Played in the National Basketball League (1946-49)
    Won three NBA championships (1955, 1967, 1983)
    Eight retired numbers: Moses Malone's #2, Julius Erving's #6, Maurice Cheeks' #10, Wilt Chamberlain's #13, Hal Greer's #15, Bobby Jones' #24, Billy Cunningham's #32, and Charles Barkley's #34
    Other former and current players include Allen Iverson, Glenn Robinson, and Derrick Coleman
    They probably stole an idea of a name from the San Francisco 49ers.
    They had the worst season in NBA history when they won only nine games (with 73 losses) during the 1972-73 season.
    Before the 1983 NBA tournament, Moses Malone predicted a playoffs sweep by exclaiming, 'Fo, fo, fo.' That didn't happen.
    Allen Iverson has questioned in press conferences about the purpose of their practices.
    After coach Larry Brown and owner Pat Croce stepped down, the team hasn't been as powerful as when they were in charge.
    They have a patriotic name.
    They used to play in the Spectrum, where the boxing match in 'Rocky' was filmed.
    They ended the Celtics' string of eight straight titles when they won in 1967.
    They lost only once in the playoffs on their way to their 1983 championship.
    Julius Erving had perhaps two of the most spectacular shots ever while with the 76ers (a reserve lay-up against the Lakers and a windmill dunk during the 1983 NBA Finals).
