24/7 Wall St.: 12 Major League Teams Running out of Fans

6 of 14

8. Philadelphia 76’ers

Decrease in attendance: 24.94%
2001 W-L record: 56-26 (finished 1st in the Eastern Conference)
2010 W-L record: 27-55 (finished 13th in the Eastern Conference)
League championships last decade: none

In 2001, the Philadelphia 76’ers were among the top five in ticket sales in the NBA. The team had an outstanding playoff run under the leadership of Allen Iverson, but lost convincingly to the Lakers in the finals. The 76’ers made it to the playoffs the following two years, but never made it past the quarter finals. The team has only had a winning record once since the 2003-2004 season. After multiple disappointing seasons, the team now has the fifth-worst attendance in the NBA.
