  • 76ers all-time leader in points scored and games played is gone

    "The Philadelphia 76ers organization mourns the passing of Hal Greer, an NBA champion, Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer and team legend," the 76ers wrote in a statement. "Throughout his 15-year career with the Syracuse Nationals and Philadelphia 76ers, Greer solidified his place as one of the greatest basketball players ever."

    Greer is the Sixers' all-time leader in points (21,586), field goals (8,504), field goals attempted (18,811), games (1,122) and minutes played (39,788). For his career, he averaged 19.2 points and 4.0 assists per game.

    He was a 10-time All-Star, seven-time second-team All-NBA selection and won an NBA title in 1967.

      The '67 Sixers is one of the best teams all time. Four HOFers. Greer shot his jumper on foul shots is what I remember best about him.

        My knowledge of sports was limited until my childhood neighborhood got wired for cable.

        No clear memory of Hal Greer.

        Greer last played in the NBA in the 1972-73 season.

                    I don't much remember watching him play, but one of my earliest childhood sports memories was 76er PA announcer Dave Zinkoff and his accentuated "Greeeeeeeer" after Hal hit a shot. As someone who always loved imitating announcers, that was one of my favorites. RIP.
