The Philadelphia 76ers are considered an ambitious franchise and, after the process years, are working into ways to re-establish themselves as one of the best teams in the NBA.

The Sixers hired a high-profile coach, like Doc Rivers, to replace Brett Brown, after a disappointing ending in the 2019/2020 season.

The franchise is pushing to host the NBA All-Star Game in Philadelphia in 2026, part of what is expected to be a busy year in the city for the celebration of the 250th anniversary of America, according to CNBC’s Jabari Young.

Philadelphia hosted the NBA All-Star Game back in 2002, one year after their appearance in the NBA Finals.

The league has already decided on locations for the next three events in Indiana (2021), Cleveland (2022), and Salt Lake City (2023).
