Greer and Iverson are One and Two in Scoring

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.

  4. So I just heard that the sixers will be playing the Miami Heat and Coach Collins said that he is not worried about scoring he knows they will score baskets but he's concerned about the rebounding. What do you think his stragety and his starting line up should be against the Heat?
