I like the red drop shadow too. Wondering if it'll be on the "Sixers" wordmark as well. I'm hoping that's the case so that it's consistent.

 

It's just subtle enough that I don't think I'd mind it on the nameplates too while they're at it...

Reminds me a little of Phoenix's use of the drop shadow on their sunburst jerseys.

I think I really like the drop shadow the Sixers added....the Cavs' number font looks decent despite the terrible color scheme....the Timberwolves' font looks goofy, but I will reserve judgment until uniforms are unveiled....nothing about the Blazers' font looks much different to me....I will be curious to see if and how and Warriors use that font as well as what the accompanying wordmark font will look like.

 

The awkward drop shadow has been removed.

I have no idea why the Cavs are using BOTH navy and black. It makes no sense to have two dark colors that close together.

The Wolves' font kind of looks like the number font from the Orlando Magic's inaugural jerseys if it matured a little bit.

Yeah, I kind of wish the Magic would use that font instead. I like the current set, but I wish they would've brought back some more elements from their original uniforms. Actually, I'd be happy with an amalgamation of the first 3 sets.

Yes, that's true. I actually wouldn't be surprised though if the font ended up being the one they've used on the red alternates they've had the last few seasons, which is noticeably different. The '0' is almost identical between the two fonts, but several of the other numbers are quite different:

Am I the only one that likes this Cavs set?  Love the color combo, albeit I understand they'd want to change since it's essentially the Knicks colors.

 

Love these jerseys tho.

New number font styles for the Cavs, Sixers, T-Wolves, and Blazers:

I would expect the numbers on the t-shirts to correspond with how they'll look on the jerseys of the same color.

 

And here's a possible number font style for a new Warriors alt:

We know they're still using copperplate for their primary uniforms, but it looks like one of their alts might use this new font instead.

Oooh... Where'd you find these?

I'm all for them switching to this new number font. Also wouldn't mind if they just switched their uniforms to the red alt template. I always thought they looked really sharp. Same classic look with a modern makeover.

Just did. Here's Fultz in red with the wrong number...

All of the Fultz merch on the Sixers' online shop has #20, so it looks like he was able to snag it away from Luwawu-Cabarrot.

Interesting. the NBA customization shop still has him in 7 but, indeed everything else is 20 and Luwawu is also still in 20...

Looks like that purple Suns uni I found is legit, with the above SUNS wordmark being the counterpart for a white uni.

The recent rebrand had many flaws, but this looks like a pretty big downgrade.

You were spot on cuz that matches the leaked image for their road jersey.  Not a fan at all but I need to see the finished product to fully judge.
