The Philadelphia 76ers were one of the bigger surprises in the NBA this past season, spending a solid amount of time in first place in the Atlantic Division and then pushing the Boston Celtics to seven games in the second round of the playoffs.

Of course, they had the fortune of Derrick Rose tearing his ACL in Game 1 of their first-round playoff matchup with the Chicago Bulls, and the Celtics were banged up beyond belief, but, nonetheless, the 76ers still did what essentially no one outside of the city of Philadelphia thought they could do.
