The 1990-91 NBA season was the 76ers 42nd season in the NBA and 28th season in Philadelphia. The Sixers finished second in the Atlantic Division with a record of 44–38, which was nine wins less than the previous season. In the playoffs, they swept the 4th-seeded Milwaukee Bucks in the first round, but for the second consecutive year, they would be eliminated by the Chicago Bulls 4–1 in the semifinals.

This season would be the last playoff appearance for the Sixers until 1999. The seven consecutive season in which they did not make the playoffs during this span were more than the franchise had missed since there inaugural season of 1950, five (missed playoffs in 1972-1975, and in 1988).[1]

Hersey Hawkins was selected for the 1991 NBA All-Star Game along with Charles Barkley. Point guard Johnny Dawkins sustained a major injury early in the season and was replaced by Ricky Green, and center Mike Gminski was traded to the Charlotte Hornets for Armen Gilliam during the year.
