When you consider the Philadelphia 76ers began as the Syracuse Nationals in 1943, eventually moving to Philadelphia to morph into the Philadelphia 76ers in 1964, you are looking at an NBA team with 72 years of history. That’s a long time and a long list of accomplished athletes to sort through. But we write about the Philadelphia 76ers, and that means we love a challenge.
So we rolled up our sleeves, broke into the vaults and sorted through the archives, and came up with a list of the top 30 all time scorers of all time.
The easiest thing to do would be to simply look up the rote top 30 scorers of the team throughout history. But we spiced up our list with a pinch of three point shooters, a dash of players who had celebrated careers but who played only a portion of their time for the Philadelphia 76ers.
