2. Wilt Chamberlain- 26.6

Wilt Chamberlain doesn't get his due praise when people discuss the game's all-time greats. The conversation tends to be about LeBron James and Michael Jordan.

Not the player who scored 100 points in a game, with no 3-pointers, which is an unbreakable record.

Chamberlain joined the Sixers in 1964 and won three consecutive MVPs with the team from 1965-1968. All told, Chamberlain averaged 27.6 points and 23.9 rebounds in Philly and led the franchise to a championship in his third season with the team.

Chamberlain also led the league in scoring and rebounding in five of his 14 seasons and was later inducted into the Hall of Fame.

1. Joel Embiid- 28.4

Joel Embiid has been a godsend for the Sixers organization,  as he's been a bona-fide superstar, irrespective of what's gone on around him. The Sixers have gone through coaches (Brett Brown and Doc Rivers) and even co-stars (Ben Simmons and James Harden) and it hasn't hindered his play on the court.

Nor has it impeded his commitment to the organization (although the clock might be ticking, based on comments he made last offseason).

Embiid is a yearly MVP threat, so long as he remains healthy, and has already led the league in scoring in consecutive seasons. He'd easily be a Hall of Famer if he retired today.
