Philadelphia 76ers: Allen Iverson (BEST)
Allen Iverson was the beneficiary of an epic in 2001 when everything bounced right. He won the MVP scoring 31 points a game with no teammate above 12 ppg, took his team to the Finals, and was the only team to take a game off the Lakers in the playoffs with his iconic Tyronn Lue step over.
But that was his only Conference Finals, and despite all the scoring from The Answer, Iverson’s teams were consistently bottom 10 in offense. Iverson was very inefficient with 42% field goals, 31% threes, and 52% true shooting and never adjusted his game to the modern ways.
Philadelphia 76ers: Markelle Fultz (WORST)
As ESPN’s Zach Lowe quipped: some day, somebody is going to write a book about the tragedy that was the start of Markelle Fultz’ star-crossed NBA career. He was considered a no-brainer, no-way-you-should-think-twice lock to be the #1 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and the league took notice when the Philadelphia 76ers traded up for the #1 pick, seemingly to pair Fultz with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
But after one of the most mysterious shoulder injuries in the history of professional athletics completely robbed Fultz of his ability (and his confidence) in shooting the basketball, his presence became an ugly blemish on the rising 76ers.
