The 1966–67 season of the Philadelphia 76ers was their 14th season in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and their fourth since moving from Syracuse, as well as their final season at the Philadelphia Civic Center, before moving to the Spectrum in South Philadelphia, the next season.
The season set a record in winning percentage and they won the NBA Finals for the franchise’s second championship and first in Philadelphia. The team was later chosen as the greatest individual team in 1980 for the NBA 35th Anniversary Team.
During the off-season, the 76ers dismissed coach Dolph Schayes of Syracuse Nationals fame. Alex Hannum, the former 1950s power forward, who was the last man to coach a winner past Boston, was the new coach. The 43-year-old Hannum looked like he could still play, and often ran with the club in practice.
Wilt Chamberlain’s eight assists per game set a record for centers and made him third in the NBA overall, while scoring 24 per game and again leading the NBA in rebounds and blocked shots. Shooting less, he made a league-record 68% of his shots; his 875 free throw attempts, another league record, offset his percentage from the foul line. More
