New Sixers Jerseys

As the 2020-2021 NBA season commences, many teams have announced the release of their new city edition jerseys. The Philadelphia 76ers’ new jersey was inspired by the 2000’s era when Allen Iverson led the team to the finals. However, controversy was created during the release, since fans were expecting a retro-style jersey commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 2000-2001 season.

A city edition jersey reflects on a team’s past season and the city they come from. The jersey features Ben Simmons’ number, 25, and an outline of the houses on Philadelphia’s historic Boathouse Row. If you look carefully within the outline, you can spot the letters ‘TTP’—a reference to the sixers’ slogan, “Trust the Process”.

While past and current players have endorsed this year’s city edition jersey, fans hope a 25th anniversary jersey will come out for the 2025-2026 season.
