Philadelphia 76ers 2014-2015 Outlook
On Oct. 22, 13 of the league’s 30 owners voted against a lottery reform plan that would have reduced the chances for teams with the very worst records to snag the very best picks. That decision was a bullet dodged for general manager Sam Hinkie’s Sixers and an unexpected one.
Just a day before the vote that stunningly struck down the plan. The 76ers were among the most vehement opponents of the potential change.
Switching things up in midstream would have had an especially negative impact on their rebuilding plans.
Even though lottery reform will be revisited again, the Sixers earned a small reprieve.
Michael Carter-Williams, reigning Rookie of the Year and last season’s lone beacon of hope, finally has a return date from his remarkably long recovery after shoulder surgery: Nov. 13
Nerlens Noel looks like a defensive menace in training. Joel Embiid is probably the best player in his draft class.

The Philadelphia 76ers are the oldest professional basketball franchise in the United States. The franchise started in 1939 as the Syracuse Nationals. In 1946, the Syracuse Nationals joined the National Basketball League, a largely Midwest-based professional basketball association. In 1949 the National Basketball League merged with the Basketball Association of America to form the National Basketball Association, today’s NBA. From 1939 through 1963, the franchise played all of its games in Syracuse, New York and was known as the Syracuse Nationals. In 1963, for financial reasons, the franchise moved the team from Syracuse to Philadelphia and they have played in Philadelphia ever since.
The Philadelphia 76ers franchise has won 3 NBA Championships during the team’s history. The Philadelphia 76ers advanced to the NBA Finals in three of the 1st six years of the NBA’s existence. The Syracuse Nationals lost to the Minneapolis Lakers (now the Los Angeles Lakers) 4-2 in the 1st ever NBA Finals in 1950 and then again to the Minneapolis Lakers 4-3 in the 1954 NBA Finals. Their fortune changed in 1955, as the franchise recorded its 1st NBA Championship with a 4-3 NBA Finals victory over the Fort Wayne Pistons (now the Detroit Pistons) in 1956. The franchise did not reach another NBA Finals for over 10 years. In 1967, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the San Francisco Warriors (now the Golden State Warriors) 4-2 to capture the franchise’s 2nd NBA Championship. The Philadelphia 76ers lost in 3 more NBA Championship Series in 1977 (to the Portland Trailblazers), in 1980 (to the Los Angeles Lakers), and in 1982 (to the Los Angeles Lakers), before recording the franchise’s 3rd and final NBA Championship in 1983. In 1983, the Philadelphia 76ers achieved revenge against the Los Angeles Lakers with a 4-0 Championship series sweep behind the dominating play of Moses Malone, who had been named the NBA’s regular season MVP. Malone, along with fellow Hall of Famer Julius “Dr. J” Erving and NBA All-Stars Maurice Cheeks, Andrew Toney and Bobby Jones, convincingly marched through the 1983 playoffs winning 12 of the 13 games they played. Only one other team has ever lost only 1 playoff game en route to an NBA Championship – the 2000-2001 Los Angeles Lakers who went 15-1 with a 4-1 rout of the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA Finals. From 1984 through 1992, out-spoken forward Charles Barkley was the hero of the Philadelphia 76ers franchise, but he only led his team to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals once – a 4-1 loss to the Boston Celtics in his 1st year on the team. The Philadelphia 76ers did not reach the NBA playoffs from 1992 through 1998, but following the 1998-1999 NBA season, the Philadelphia 76ers ran off a string of 5 straight playoff appearances behind the strong play of superstar guard Allen Iverson. But once again, the Philadelphia 76ers could not get over the hump, advancing to the NBA Finals only once – a 4-1 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2001 NBA Finals.
The Philadelphia 76ers retired Hal Greer’s #15 on November 19, 1976; Billy Cunningham’s #32 on December 17, 1976; David Zinkoff’s “Microphone” on March 25, 1986 (the only non-player to be honored in this fashion); Bobby Jones’ #24 on November 7, 1986; Julius Erving’s #6 on April 18, 1988; Wilt Chamberlain’s #13 on March 18, 1991; Maurice Cheek’s #10 on February 6, 1995; Charles Barkley’s #34 on March 30, 2001.
