The Philadelphia 76ers have a storied history of great basketball tradition.
Nine players that have played for the Sixers have gone on to be enshrined in the National Basketball Hall of Fame. You can make that number 10 when Allen Iverson gets voted in.
From 1946 to the present day, fans have fell in love with some Sixers players. Let's take a look at the ten most popular players in 76ers history.
Bobby Jones is what Philadelphia basketball is all about. He played 100 percent each night and played his heart out every game. That's all Philadelphia fans ask for.
Jones may not have been the most athletic player, but his effort and work ethic made him fan favorite and a great basketball player. He is best known for his defensive prowess.
World B. Free started his career with the Sixers back in 1975. In 2011, Free is still a member of the franchise as a community and team ambassador.
Free was a shooter who was not afraid of taking any shot.
Free has probably become more popular after his playing career.
There may not have been a more exciting tandem in Sixers history. Allen Iverson and Larry Hughes always made the highlight reel with their dazzling alley-oops.
While Hughes was in Philly, the team was terrible but at least the fans came and watched knowing that something eye-popping could happen each night.
Dolph Schayes was the first centerpiece to build a team around when the Syracuse Nationals were created.
Schayes played his entire career for the Sixers organization, playing most of his games for the Syracuse Nats.
He is a 12-time All-Star that is often overlooked because played so long ago.
Wilt Chamberlain is one of the league's all-time greats. Because of that, he was praised when the Sixers acquired him in a trade in 1965.
Chamberlain had his infamous 100 point game while in Philadelphia.
Why why why did the Sixers have to trade Sir Charles?
After the Sixers missed the playoffs in 1991, the Sixers decided to go another route and traded away their crown jewel in what was a trade that fans went up in flames over.
Moses Malone played only four seasons in Philadelphia, but his presence has been felt for a lot longer than that.
Malone led the Sixers to the NBA Title in 1983. His mentality...fo,fo,fo.
Julius Erving played a brand new style of basketball in the 1980s. His style led the Sixers to winning the NBA Title in 1983.
He is known for his skilled and acrobatic dunks. Dr. J will be forever enshrined in Philadelphians hearts.
Maurice Cheeks was and is still one of the most popular players in franchise history. He was a member of the 83 championship team.
Cheeks returned to the Sixers as a coach, his only hiccup with the franchise. He did not gel well with the team and Cheeks was run out of town.
No Sixer has brought more to the city of Philadelphia than Allen Iverson did. He brought his heart each and every night to the arena and left it on the floor each game.
Fans fell in love with Iverson's heart and determination. He departed town on not so good terms when he was traded to Denver. However, Iverson returned to Philly in 2009 and fans welcomed him back with open arms.
The most explosive little man in NBA history will certainly go into the Hall of Fame as a member of the 76ers.
