1962–63 Syracuse Nationals season

The 1962-63 NBA season was the Nationals' 14th season in the NBA.[1] In their final season in Syracuse, the Nationals finished with a record of 48-32, good for second place in the NBA Eastern Division. They qualified for the playoffs, but lost to the Cincinnati Royals, three games to two in the East semifinal.

Following the season, the Nationals relocated to Philadelphia and became the 76ers, filling the void left by the Warriors, who moved to the Bay Area one year earlier.
