The 1998-99 NBA season was the 76ers 50th season in the NBA and 36th season in Philadelphia. After a four month lockout wiped out half the season, the Sixers signed free agents Matt Geiger and George Lynch during the offseason, and acquired Tyrone Hill from the Milwaukee Bucks at midseason. The Sixers recorded their first winning month in five years, on their way to making the playoffs for the first time in eight years with a 28–22 record, third in the Atlantic Division. Allen Iverson led the league in scoring with 26.8 points per game. In the first round of the playoffs, the Sixers defeated the 3rd–seeded Orlando Magic in four games, but were swept in the semifinals by the Indiana Pacers in four straight games. Following the season, Rick Mahorn retired after making his second stint with the Sixers.
