The Philadelphia 76ers have had some very big performances in their lengthy history. From Dr. J to Allen Iverson, here is the top 20 of all time.

The Philadelphia 76ers have one of the most historic franchises of all time. Over the history, plenty of big performances have taken place. Narrowing it down to just 20 that encompass what the franchise is and was is a tough task, but the staff here at The Sixer Sense took on the challenge, and the list we compiled is one that was fun to look back at.
It includes performances from all corners of the franchises history, except for the current one. The most recent performance came in 2001. Possibly, the likely future of the franchise, Jahlil Okafor, can find his name on an updated version on this list within the next few years, but with games like Iverson’s step over on this list, that’s going to be a tough task.
We paid tribute to the starters, but the first five official moments are from players who came off of the bench and put up big stat lines. The top 15 are off the bench in some occasions, but mostly regular starters.
We also included a bonus moment, which was just an intriguing performance all around that we felt would be sad to go unnoticed on this list.
