Former Philadelphia 76ers, Hal Greer and Allen "The Answer" Iverson are the No. 1 and No. 2 all-time scoring leaders in the Nationals/76ers franchise history, according to multiple sources.
Greer, who played his whole career in a National/76ers uniform holds the top spot on the franchise's all-time scoring list with 21,586 points. He played in the NBA from 1958 to 1973.
During his 15-year career, the guard/forward scored over 1,500 points in 10 seasons, and posted a career-best 1,976 points (24 points per game) during the 1967-68 season. Greer was apart of the first Philadelphia 76ers team (since the switch from Syracuse to Philly) to win the NBA championship in 1966-67.
The 76ers have not won a championship since the 1982-83 season, and the last man to get them to the NBA Finals was the 76ers's second all-time leading scorer, "The Answer".
Iverson scored 19, 931 points in his career as a 76er. In his 14-year career (1997-2010), Iverson averaged 26.7 points per game and played 10 full seasons with the ball club.
He averaged a career-best 33.0 points per game and scored a career-high 2,377 points during the 2005-06 season.
During the last season that Philadelphia stepped onto the NBA Finals stage in the 2000-01, Iverson averaged 31 points, 5 assists and 2.5 steals a game.
The 76ers has had many great players in its franchise who were outstanding scorers, as well as, overall players.
We have entered a new era in Philadelphia 76er basketball, and it has a promising upside. Let's see if one of the current and/or future players on the 76ers roster can perform at an optimal level like Greer and Iverson, and challenge their historic numbers, but more importantly bring a fourth championship to Philadelphia.
