PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - FEBRUARY 12: Joel Embiid #21 of the Philadelphia 76ers dunks over Jarrett Allen #31 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the second quarter at Wells Fargo Center on February 12, 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

If you have listened to the Mike Missanelli Show then you know that the entire show are HUGE basketball fans. Mike, Tyrone, Jen along with the listeners decided to compile a list of the top 50 players to EVER put on a Sixers uniform. This doesnt mean they had to be good when they played here. In fact, some of them werent bad here. Allow this fun list to entertain you as we await James Harden’s Sixers debut.

  • 50) SG/SF - Jim Jackson

    Jackson played one year in Philly (1997) but hada 14 year NBA career. He averaged over 14 PPG and was both a starter and a 6th man.

  • 49) SF/PF/C - Cliff Robinson

    Cliff spent 3 seasons in Philly from 86-89 primarily coming off the bench and being extremely productive until a knee injury took out his career. He did return in 1991 with the Lakers but by that point he was cooked. In his 12 year career he averaged 17.2 PPG, 8.3 RPG, and 2 assists per game.

  • 48) C - Andre Drummond

    Drummond is still in the middle of his career but has already put in 11 seasons. He is a 2 time All-Star and was a REALLY good signing for the Sixers until they shipped him to Brooklyn for James Harden. He is probably a backup big for a good team and a starter for a bad one. But in his career so far he has averaged 13.9 PPG, 13.4 RPG, and 1.5 BPG.

  • 47) SG/PG - Jeff Hornacek

    Hornacek came over to the Sixers after his lone All-Star appearance and played very well. The problem is he was traded for this Barkley guy who might be featured later on. He was shipped off to Utah. He played 14 seasons in the NBA and averaged 14.5 PPG, and 4.9 APG.

  • 47) SF/PF - Keith Van Horn

    Van Horn was the 2nd overall pick by the Sixers in 1997 but was immediately shipped off to New Jersey for a package centered around Tim Thomas. Van Horn returned to the Sixers in 2002 for his lone season in Philly. He was solid in his lone season in Philly and thats what Van Horn was; Solid. He averaged 16 PPG, and 6.8 in his 9 year career

  • 45) C/PF - Al Horford

    Yes, his one season in Philly was BRUTALLL but that is the anomaly with Al Horford. Horford gets on this list because of what hes done with the Celtics. He was the Rookie of the Year, and a 5 time All-Star. The Sixers just didnt know how to use him.

  • 44) SF - Orlando Woolridge

    Woolridge’s last season in the NBA was during the 93-94 season and it was in a Sixers uniform. At 34 he was still pretty good as he came off the bench for a bad team. In his 13 year career he averaged 16 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 1.9 APG

  • 43) SF/PF - Tobias Harris

    He’s a max player!!

  • 42) C - Mike Gminski

    The Sixers traded for Gminski in January of 1988 and started all but one of his 240 games in a Sixers uniform. He scored 11.7 PPG, and 6.9 RPG along with 1.1 BPG.

  • 41) SF/SG/PG - Larry Hughes

    1 half of the “Flight Brothers” makes the list. Defensively Hughes was great. It never really took off in Philly the way we thought but Hughes turned in a nice 13 year career. Being a versatile player who led the NBA in steals in 2004. Offensively he averaged over 14 PPG in his career

  • 40) SG/PG - Archie Clark

    Clark was an All-Star for the Sixers in 1971. He was a 2 time All-Star during his short but productive career. He averaged over 18 points in a Sixers uniform and over 16 in his NBA career.

  • 39) C - Darryl Dawkins

    “Chocolate Thunder” was a crowd pleaser during 7 years in Philly for his ability to rock the rim. In his 14 year NBA career he averaged 12 PPG, and 6.1 RPG with 1.4 BPG.

  • 38) SG - Hersey Hawkins

    The Sixers 6th overall pick in the 1988 NBA draft was an All-Star for the team in 1990. He spent 5 years in Philly and 13 years in the NBA. He averaged 19 points per game in a Sixers uniform and was a scoring threat with every team.

  • 37) PG/SG - JJ Redick

    Overpaid? Absolutely. But what a 3 point threat. He filled it up beyond the arc. A .415 3 point shooter in his career. Horrible defensively but he wasnt paid for that.

  • 36) PG/SG - Andre Miller

    Miller was the “big piece” in the trade that sent Allen Iverson to the Nuggets. He was a passing wizard leading the NBA in assists in 2001. For his career he averaged 6.5 but that was brought down a lot by the poor play during the backend of his career. As a starter he was a very underrated player

  • 35) SF/PF - Toni Kukoc

    He is in the Basketball Hall-of-Fame. You may have forgotten that he played for the Sixers but he was a big part in the trade that brought Mutombo to town. But when it was all said and done you can find him in Springfield Mass.

  • 34) SG/SF - Jerry Stackhouse

    Stackhouse and Iverson were supposed to be the 1-2 punch that would lead the Sixers back to relevence. Then Stackhouse was traded to Detroit for a package that included Aaron McKie and Theo Ratliff. Stackhouse was a 2 time All-Star in Detroit and averaged 16.9 PPG in his career.

  • 33) PF - Paul Millsap

    A new Sixer who was acquired in the James Harden trade, its pretty clear that Millsap is past his prime. But during that prime he went to 4 straight All-Star games as a member of the Hawks.

  • 32) SG - Jeff Malone

    Malone was a 2 time All-Star and made the All-Rookie team in 1983. Unfortunately that wasnt with the Sixers. He put up 19 PPG in his career and was extremely productive but he was hit with injuries towards the end of his career.

  • 31) SG - Doug Collins

    The #1 overall pick in the 1973 draft and then he came back to coach the team to the Eastern Conference Finals. He only played 8 seasons in the league but half of those seasons he was an All-Star.

  • 30) SG/SF - Jason Richardson

    Its ok if you forgot that Richardson wore a Sixers uniform because it was during the “Process” era. But man could he fill it up. He averaged 17.1 PPG, 5 RPG, 2.7 APG, and 1.2 SPG.

  • 29) C - Nik Vucevic

    Vucevic has been a double double machine in the NBA. He is in his 11th season and is averaging 17 PPG and 10.5 RPG. Unfortauntely for the Sixers they used him to get Andrew Bynum. With Orlando Vucevic’s career really took off. He is a 4 time All-Star and is still dominating.

  • 28) SF/PF - Terry Cummings

    Cummings spent 19 years in the NBA and was an All-Star twice. He only spent 1 year in Philly, and it was when he was 36 and just clinging on to his career. As a starter he averaged over 20 PPG, 8.5 RPG, and 2.3 APG.

  • 27) PF/C - Elton Brand

    Unfortunately the Sixers gave Brand a lot of money and his knees were not there anymore. But he was the 1999 Rookie of the Year, a two time All-Star, and has been a pretty damn good executive. Career wise he averaged 15.9 PPG and 8.5 RPG.

  • 26) SG/PG - Jrue Holiday

    The Sixers stole Holiday at pick 17 in the 2009 draft. The Sixers shipped him off when he was just 22 and after he made his first All-Star game. He is 31 now and was a big piece in bringing the Bucks a parade last season.

  • 25) SG/PG - Lou Williams

    Williams is one of the best Sixers draft steals of all time. They took him in the 2nd round in the last year NBA teams were allowed to take high school players. They brought him along slowly and he never QUITE took off with the Sixers. He showed glimpses of being a great 6th man but then the Sixers gave up on him. He really came into his own under Doc Rivers in LA where he became a 3 time 6th man of the year.

  • 24) SG/SF - Andre Iguodala

    Here is his resume:

    1 All-Star appearance

    3 time NBA champion

    NBA Finals MVP

    2 time All-Defense

    Shouldve won the dunk contest that one year but they gave Nate Robinson a billion tries.

    He probably ends up in Springfield.

  • 23) SF - Glen Robinson

    Make no mistake about it. The “Big Dog” was just a dog when he showed up in Philly in 2003. He was WAY past his prime, and had no interest in really giving any effort. The Sixers finally bought him out and he won a title with San Antonio. But the Robinson BEFORE he arrived in Philly gets him on this list. Because Milwaulkee Robinson was a 2 time All-Star and a REALLY good player

  • 22) PF/C - Derrick Coleman

    D.C. had 2 stints in Philly. And every once in a while he showed why he was the #1 overall pick in the 1990 NBA draft. He was thought of as kind of a dog, but he was insanely productive. He averaged 16.5 PPG, 9.3 RPG, along with 1.3 BPG.

  • 21) SG/PG - World B. Free

    World started his NBA career with the Sixers until they shipped him off to San Diego. In his 13 year NBA career he averaged over 20 PPG and made an All-Star game.

  • 20) SG - Andrew Toney

    The “Boston Strangler” career was cut short by injuries. Which is truly a shame. Because the 2 time All-Star was poised to do big things but alas. He averaged 15.9 PPG and 4.2 APG

  • 19) PF - Tom Chambers

    Tom Chambers spent his last season in the NBA with the Sixers. He was 38 and played 1 game. But man was that game memorable. He was a 4 time All-Star and 2 time All-NBA. For his career he averaged over 18 PPG and over 6 RPG.

  • 18) SG/PG - Jimmy Butler

    Jimmy Buckets is still filling it up. Unfortunately its not with the Sixers. The Sixers chose Brett Brown and Ben Simmons over Butler and now both of them are gone. He is a 6 time All-Star including this past season. Hes developed into one of the best 2 way players in the league.

  • 17) PF - Bobby Jones

    One of the best 6th men in NBA history, Jones was a HUGE piece in the Sixers 1980 championship. You can see his resume in Springfield Mass.

  • 16) PF/SF - George McGinnis

    McGinnis spent 3 seasons in Philly. During his Hall of Fame career he was a 6 time All-Star (includes ABA) and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017. His #30 is retired by the Pacers

  • 15) PG - Mo Cheeks

    Your starting point guard on the 1980 championship team, Mo was one of the best point guards in the league. He was a 4 time All-Star and he was inducted into the Pro Basketball Hall of Fame.

  • 14) SF - Chet Walker

    “The Jet” spent his first 7 seasons in Philly. Well, the first was in Syracuse but then the team moved to Philly. IT COUNTS! Walker was a 7 time All-Star and during his time was one of the best small forwards in the game. He averaged over 18/7 in his career

  • 13) C - Dikembe Mutumbo

  • 12) C/PF - Bob Mcadoo

    He made the NBA’s 75th anniversary team. So the NBA figured he was one of the best 75 players in the game so he made our list

  • 11) PF/C - Chris Webber

    Webber’s Sixers tenure was something I think we would all like to forget. But lets not forget that Webber was an INCREDIBLE player. One that ended up in the Hall of Fame.

  • 10) SF/PF - Billy Cunningham

    5 time All-Star

    4 time All-NBA

    1972 MVP

    and ended up in the Hall of Fame

  • 9) C - Dwight Howard

    He only spent one season in Philly and it was as Joel Embiid’s backup. But the former MVP will end up being inducted into Springfield.

  • 8) PG/SG - Hal Greer

    He was a TEN time All-Star. A SEVEN time All-NBA. and a Hall of Famer. The Sixers botched “Hal Greer night” during his last season when they decided not to start Hal Greer, but thats just water under the bridge.

  • 7) C - Joel Embiid

    He’s Shaq, mixed with Hakeem.

  • 6) SF - Julius Erving

    He’s the Doctor. A 16 time All-Star. Arguably the greatest Sixer of All-Time

  • 5) SG/PG - Allen Iverson

    Were not talking bout practice. Were talking about 5th all time. The Answer was electric in the late 90’s early 2000’s and dragged the 2001 team to the Finals.

  • 4) SF/PF - Charles Barkley

    The “Round Mound of Rebound” is a former MVP, 11 time All-Star, a member of the Dream Team and in the Hall of Fame.

  • 3) SG/PG - James Harden

    Harden hasnt actually started his Sixers career (as I write this) but Mike’s argument is the moment he steps on the court in a Sixers jersey he will be 3rd on this list.

  • 2) C/PF - Moses Malone

    a 13 time All-Star who ended up in the Hall of Fame. A MAJOR piece in the 1980 championship team.

  • 1) C - Wilt Chamberlain

    Ask anyone who was alive to see Wilt and they will put him ahead of Jordan and Lebron
