The 2011–12 Philadelphia 76ers season was the 73rd season of the franchise, 63rd in the National Basketball Association (NBA), and the 49th in Philadelphia. The Sixers finished the regular season with a 35–31 record, earning the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and a berth in the 2012 NBA Playoffs. Philadelphia faced the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in the first round and won the series in six games. This marked the first time the Sixers won an NBA playoffs series since 2003, when they defeated the New Orleans Hornets in six games in the First Round. This was only the fifth time an eighth-seeded team beat a first-seeded team in the playoffs in league history, following the Denver Nuggets in 1994, the New York Knicks in 1999, the Golden State Warriors in 2007, and the Memphis Grizzlies in 2011. The Sixers ended their postseason run after losing in seven games to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

This marked the last time the Sixers made the playoffs until 2018.

Many players signed with teams from other leagues due to the 2011 NBA lockout. FIBA allows players under NBA contracts to sign and play for teams from other leagues if the contracts have opt-out clauses that allow the players to return to the NBA if the lockout ends.[4] The Chinese Basketball Association, however, only allows its clubs to sign foreign free agents who could play for at least the entire season.[5]
