The 1969-70 NBA season was the 76ers 21st season in the NBA and 7th season in Philadelphia.The season prior, Wilt Chamberlain was dealt to the Lakers, however a more devastating trade was made before the 1969–70 season. Chet Walker, an all-star forward, was traded to the Chicago Bulls for Jim Washington, who played college ball in Philadelphia, and ended up having a journeyman career. Luke Jackson continued to be hobbled by a major injury sustained in 1969 and never played the same again. That combined with a very poor draft, was a factor in the team losing 13 more games than the previous campaign.[1]
