The Sixers “New” Uniforms Are, Predictably, 🔥

It looks like it’s the Markelle Fultz publicity tour this week. Yesterday he threw out the first pitch at the Phillies game (strike-ish?), and today he is modeling the Sixers’ new-ish Nike uniforms, complete with StubHub patch and, for Markelle, confirmation of the number 20.

As we’ve discussed before, Nike is implementing four jerseys for each NBA team, rebranding home and away and adding two sets of alternates. Curiously absent from this re-launch for the Sixers is the red uniform the team seems to have gotten away from in recent years. They feel blue is their identity color, and unsurprisingly the focus seems to be on those jerseys here. As best as I can tell, there’s no indication as to which jersey – blue or white – will serve as the home jersey, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was the blue one.

Here, have a closer look:

There’s very little difference between these and the jerseys the Sixers unveiled in 2015:

New additions include a Swoosh, the StubHub logo, and a red drop shadow around the white letters and numbers. [I’m sure Fashion Editor Dan will point out some things I missed.] There’s also a small “Brotherly Love” in that part of the jersey you can only see when it comes untucked after Joel Embiid pulls off a devastating chase-down block:

So what about the two sets of alternates? I would suspect that red will remain in the mix for one of them and have heard that the Sixers plan on debuting at some point this fall an all-new kickass fourth alternate, perhaps complete with an alternate court, similar to what they did last year with their 50th anniversary court. I’m just guessing on this part, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the new alternates included short-sleeve jerseys. Scott O’Neil mentioned the possibility two years ago, and I get the sense the new jerseys will be radically different in a unique way. Short sleeves would be just that. [UPDATE: Several people have pointed out that Nike has said it won’t be making short-sleeve jerseys, so I’m wrong on that part.]

Anyway, the Nike upgrade appears to have gone smoothly for the Sixers. There are no major changes and just minor additions and tweaks. The StubHub patch is tastefully done and doesn’t take anything away from the uniforms, at all. The swoosh always seems to make everything cooler.

  1. Can’t wait to cop me one of these jerseys . Going be lit walking with bae rocking this jersey . Might get faded drinking some fire ball shots while wearing this jersey . Definitely going be turnt up while rocking this jersey at the bar

    1. I will wear mine in a youth size on top of a white t shirt with some tight black jeans and a pair of chuck taylors.

  2. I like how 97.5 the fanatic is conveniently ignoring the Pete Rose dating young girls situation says:

    Pete Rose should be sharing a cell with his good buddy Jerry Sandusky, for the rest of his miserable life.
    And shame on stepford Philadelphia sports fans for their continued support of a child predator in Pete Rose.

  3. Can’t believe notoriously cheap 97.5 are going to give away $5000 to whatever white trash whore wins the bikini contest. How about putting that $ towards some radio talent

    1. I think they are doing it out of desperation in order to get some people to show up….xfinity is probably paying half the money so that they can sell some beers…..

    2. Every one room apartment in Bristol, Pa has one. I know if I was a bimbo with fake boobs I spend every waking minute thinking about winning that luxury fire pit waterfall.

  4. Three changes: Joel’s hair has grown out, and NN and Grant are gone. NBA is doing away with sleeves, as they did not go over with anyone, fans and players alike. Love to see “Seventy-Sixers” unie again, as was case in 70 and 71. They lasted but a year. Trust the process.

  5. The Sixers did something. Kyle loves it. Sam Hinkie anticipated these fire jerseys seven years ago. If anyone gets injured while wearing one, the Sixers’ medical staffers that Hinkie didn’t hire are to blame. If you disagree you are a poop face.
