Sixers tweet video to salute the 1966-67 NBA champs

The Philadelphia 76ers' 1966-67 campaign was one of the best seasons for any franchise in NBA history. The league's MVP, Wilt Chamberlain, led the Sixers to a 68-13 record, the best in league history at the time.

Philadelphia proved it was the best team in the NBA by defeating Oscar Robertson and the Cincinnati Royals 3-1 in the Eastern Division semifinals and then dominating Bill Russell and the Boston Celtics 4-1 in the East finals. The 76ers wenton to beat the San Francisco Warriors in six games in the NBA Finals.

Relive the "Spirit of the 76ers" as the team salutes its NBA title in 1966-67.
