Pretty cool. You like that? You like that? <Kirk Cousins voice>
*People gave Chris shit for the “New Philadelphia” comments, and the Boathouse Row design, but I thought all of that was pretty cool. The Sixers are generally much more creative than the other teams when it comes to trying new things or going with unique designs, or thinking in a different way. Boathouse Row is a notablePhilly landmark, which was nice to see. There’s enough Liberty Bell imagery out there already.
