Sixers announce new uniform for 2015-16

Recommended Posts

There's a huge gulf between "one of the top five most important NBA players in the immediate post-MJ era" and "one of the most culturally-important athletes of all time". And Iverson falls right into it.

Well they went with Franklin...

Franklin the Dog, not Ben Franklin. The mascot "for kids, designed by kids". Yuck.

Still better than a moose though!

Well Franklin does have some flaws his face he doesn't seem to look like a dog he looks like a donkey rather than a dog.

The 78 uniforms I hope is what it most resembles

^ why I don't think the 76ers should go in that direction, especially since the Nets are bringing back those side stripes for their alt.

But it will help ease the transition to Newark. :)

Since the Nets abandoned the color scheme and the Sixers presumably would have stars and stripes on both sides, I think they could pull it off.

Didn't the originals exist at the same time?

The years were 1972/74-19771, the colors were red/white/blue, the stars were on the sides:

(1974-87)

And, the team that beat all the above to it, the ABA's Los Angeles Stars:

1To be fair, this was around the time of the U.S.'s bicentennial

I'll never understand why the Sixers didn't drop the black immediately upon introducing this jersey. I really liked the Iverson-era look, but I do think that moving away from their traditional colors was a mistake. I thought that this jersey was the best of both worlds and a step on the right path, and I was disappointed that they never really followed up on this.

I'd personally like to see a red version of that uniform. That being said, the blue version is definitely superior to the bland blacks. Just like that logo is superior to the "retro" one they use now.

That thing is a couple inches away from being a 2015 sleeved jersey.
