Team: 76ers GC
Coach: Jeff Terrell
2018 Regular Season Record/Finish: 10-4/2nd in the League
2018 Season Accolades: Obtained No.2 Seed in the NBA 2K League Playoffs, Champions of THE TIPOFF Tournament
Protected Players for 2019 Season: Radiant, Steez, Newdini33, ZDS
76ers GC started off their season with a bang. They went 5-1 en route to being crowned champions of THE TIPOFF tournament, the NBA 2K League’s first-ever tournament. Their strong start carried over into the regular season as they finished their 2018 campaign with a 10-4 overall record while also making a run to the semifinals of THE TURN, the season’s second tournament. The 10-4 record was good for the 2nd best overall regular season record in the NBA 2K League and locked them up the No.2 seed in the Playoffs where they were eventually eliminated by Heat Check Gaming in the quarterfinals.
There will be a lot of familiar faces in Philadelphia next year. Returning in the 2019 season for 76ers GC will be their scoring and assist leader Radiant, who averaged 19.1 PPG & 13.1 APG. Also returning will be rebounding leader Steez (8.9 RPG) as well as sharpshooters Newdini33 and ZDS.
