All-Time 76ers Starting Five – Most Entertaining Team?

Allen Iverson – PG/SG

Allen Iverson may be one of the most iconic athletes of all time. He not only influenced the league with his wicked handles, ambitious fashion, and heartless mentality, but he was also one of the best scoring combo guards in NBA history. He was a fan favorite in Philadelphia for his street ball style of play and interaction with the fans. Iverson averaged just under 28 points and about 6 assists per game in his time in Philly.

Maurice Cheeks – PG

Maurice Cheeks might not be the most talented guy to ever play for the Sixers. He was competing with Hal Greer, Andre Igoudala, and even World B. Free for the second guard spot for the Sixers. Cheeks played eleven years with the Sixers averaging about 12 points and 7 assists. The stats might not jump out at you, but he was a very consistent point guard during his time in Philadelphia.

Julius Erving – SF

Depending on who you’re talking to, Julius Erving is the best player in 76ers history. He constantly showcased his premium athleticism in dunk contests. He averaged 22 points, 7 rebounds, and 4 assists as a 76er. The one-time NBA champ also won four MVP awards during his time in the ABA and with the Sixers. At his time, he was probably the most athletic player in the league next to Michael Jordan. Anyone that is compared to Jordan

Dolph Schayes – PF

I’ve never actually seen Dolph Schayes play, but everywhere I look, he seems to have been a great player. He averaged 18 points and 12 rebounds. He made an All-NBA team 12/15 years he was in the league, so he was pretty well respected in his time. That’s all you really need to know about Schayes.

Moses Malone – C

Many would say that Moses Malone had his best years in Houston. Though this may be true, he made a much bigger impact on the Sixers. Moses Malone allegedly turned around Charles Barkley’s career, calling him “fat and lazy.” Barkley will always be the first to tell you how valuable Malone was. On the “All-Star Ultimate Fantasy Draft,” Barkley selected Malone in the second round over many other NBA greats. In Malone’s five seasons in Philly, he averaged 21 points and 12 rebounds.
