Overview

The true fan's guide to all things Sixers

Most 76ers fans have attended a game at the Wells Fargo Center, seen highlights of a young Charles Barkley, and remember team’s trip to the 2001 NBA Finals. But only real fans can name the franchise’s 12 Hall of Famers, remember the future head coach who played guard for the team in the 1970s, or know all the words to “Here Come the Sixers”.  100 Things 76ers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die by Gordon Jones reveals the most critical moments and important facts about past and present players, coaches, and teams that are part of the storied history that is 76ers basketball. Scattered throughout the pages, you'll find pep talks, records, and Sixers lore to test your knowledge, including: * The franchise’s beginnings as the Syracuse Nationals before moving to Philadelphia in 1963 * Both NBA Champion Sixers teams—1966-67 led by Wilt Chamberlain and the 1982-83 led by Julius Erving and Moses Malone * The memorable Sixers teams of the late 1980s and early 1990s led by Barkley * Profiles of unforgettable Colts personalities such as Billy Cunningham, Allen Iverson, and Maurice Cheeks  Whether you're a die-hard fan from the early days of Chamberlain and Dr. J or a new supporter of Jrue Holiday, this book contains everything 76ers fans should know, see, and do in their lifetime. If you bleed red, royal blue, and white, then 100 Things 76ers Fans is for you. It offers the chance to be certain you are knowledgeable about the most important facts about the team, the traditions, and what being a Sixers fan is all about.
