Here's my quick mock-up (sorry for the crappy photoshop skills!)

Is there any chance the Sixers are going back to red as their usual away jersey, as much as those still exist? They’re always due to swap those every couple years.

My guess is they’ll have a red version of this as the Earned uniform if the leak is indeed replacing the red statement

I like it. But I'm hoping he's wrong and these are the City jerseys because I love the red jerseys and would be sad to see them go away.

Let's dispense with the notion that anything about Clay Bennett moving the Sonics to OKC was "last-minute," shall we?

1.  The red Sixers jerseys are terrible and if they're gone then good riddance.

 

2.  Is the new one navy... or royal?  Looks kinda dark.

 

3.  I'd much rather it say Phila than Philadelphia.  Just too long, and the Phila scrips from a couple of seasons ago were just go well done.

 

4.  The Sixers have IMO the best overall set of uniforms in the league... but that's kind of a problem.  The primary block PHILA uniforms are almost perfect.  That should be their main/primary look - it's just that good.  HOwever, their stars jerseys are really well done too - both the gray and the white ones.  The Phila/Philadelphia ones look really great too.  

 

They have 3 great looks... which means they don't have one.

I figure "Phila" is probably the "proper" abbreviation, but I've always wondered why they don't go with "Philly" given that seems to be much more common.

My biggest question is why blue?

Because that’s one of their colors... they’ve had red, cream and white alts, blue seems like the next logical step.

Is that stripe down the side of the Sixers uniform gold to simulate the Liberty Bell crack or snakeskin to go with that segmented snake “Phila Unite” secondary logo?

I know the name is long but that scripty typeface needs to be bolded a bit. Looks too much like a wedding invite.

It looks like the Liberty Bell crack. And, the fact the bell is on the shorts along with the crack being gold ... I'm 99.9% sure that's the "Nike narrative."

Red Phila Jersey?

Because Philly is a nick name. You wouldn’t put Cincy on a Reds uniform. Phila is an “official” abbreviation, and one that is used all the time when giving addresses “Phila, PA 19###”. Plus there’s historical context. I love it on their unis.

Navy blue is a Sixers color?

 

-----------------------------------

Also...apparently this is not a statement jersey...with the crack on the shorts (which sounds awful) I'm guessing it's the new City jersey.

Yep, in their most recent brand guide, it's listed right there along with the lighter blue and redspacer.png

I still don't get the appeal of this horrible clipart filler.

 

But if the team's still using it, enough customers must be buying the merch. If the merch is being bought, someone must think this logo is worth spending money on.

 

The only part where I cannot connect the dots together is the fact that I've never heard anyone say anything positive about the logo. If someone has anything nice to say about the logo, I respect opinions that are different from mine. But I really would love to know why some people think this logo is great and why there's never been a need to change it since it's inception 11-ish years ago.

 

After all, this logo survived for an entire decade and will probably survive the next one too.

 

A city was gifted their first ever major pro franchise, and it happened to be a team that was on it's way to being a championship contender, so I don't think merch sales were going to be an issue. It really didn't matter what they went with for the first logo. Fans will always be nostalgic for a team's inaugural logo, but I'm sure people in OKC wouldn't mind a change.

 

As others have mentioned, the colour scheme is fine, and I have no issues with the uniform design, so the change doesn't need to be too drastic. They already have a bison mascot, so I've always thought that should be the focal point of a logo. Sean McCarthy did an excellent concept:
