On this day in 1962, the Philadelphia 76ers were officially born, as Irv Kosloff and Ike Richman purchased the Syracuse Nationals and then relocated the franchise to the City of Brotherly Love. Richman was a well-known attorney in Philadelphia and he was Wilt Chamberlain's attorney, negotiating the future Hall-of-Famer's first contract with the Philadelphia Warriors prior to buying the Nationals with Kosloff.
