When the 1955 NBA Champions Syracuse Nationals transferred to Philadelphia, the name "76ers" was coined due to the bravery of the men who fought for the United States' independence in 1776. Aside from the Nationals' title, the team from the City of Brotherly Love emerged as the ultimate victor only twice. One was in 1967 when Wilt Chamberlain led the team to stop the nine-year championship run of the Boston Celtics. The other instance was in 1983 when Julius Erving, Moses Malone and company swept the Los Angeles Lakers in four games.
Now, the gallant battle for an NBA championship is being continued by a young roster of athletic and talented ball players such as point guard Jrue Holliday, shooting guard Nick Young, foward Evan Turner, forward Thaddeus Young and center Andrew Bynum. Though they are young, they 76ers exude the same bravery that the Philadelphia forefather had. But this time, they are pouring it out within the confines of the hard court. Thus, this exciting bunch is worth watching for in the flesh.
