The 1987-88 NBA season was the 76ers 39th season in the NBA and 25th season in Philadelphia. This was the first season of the post-Julius Erving era, as the team was now led by Charles Barkley. As a result, the Sixers failed to reach the playoff for the first time since 1974-1975, going 36-46. Matt Goukas was fired in the middle of the season after going 20-23 and was replaced by Jim Lynam. This was the last NBA season for Andrew Toney who was forced to retire due to foot injuries.
