Philadelphia 76ers Tickets
Even people who don’t know much about basketball probably have heard of Wilt Chamberlain. He played for the Philadelphia 76ers from 1965 to 1968, and he was the NBA's Most Valuable Player for three straight years while playing for the team. The 76ers have had other MVPs as well: Julius Erving, Allen Iverson and Moses Malone. Now, the team has young stars like Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. Playing at the Wells Fargo Center that holds 21,000 basketball spectators, many 76ers fans look forward to the team’s meetings with the Toronto Raptors. Part of the reason is that in the 2019 NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals, the 76ers lost to the Raptors in a seven-game series. Kawhi Leonard sealed Toronto’s victory when he sent up a shot that hit the rim and bounced several times before falling in. Leonard will return to Philadelphia with the Los Angeles Clippers, his new team. Get your tickets to Philadelphia 76ers games at StubHub.
