apparently so.

Kate Price, Sixers’ Vice President of Business Operations, told yesterday to a group of season ticket holders in a fan forum that the franchise will be switching back to the old logo and the old 1982-83 uniforms (white/home, red/away) starting from next season.

I don't think they look as good, but it doesn't matter, you still will win the same number of games.

They're better off. I always thought their logo and jersey's were ugly but I know a lot of people will disagree with me.

For a team called the 76ers to wear something other than red, white, and blue is a joke.



I'm not a Sixers fan, but this is a great move IMO. Those old uniforms are great.

I think its a great move. But she shouldn't stop there, offer Moses Malone and Maurice Cheeks contracts, yeah see if Sir Charles willing to get back in shape, try calling Dr. J while you at it.

Its the best news ive heard in a while, you know, when a team is new like raptors or grizz chanign uniforms or Logos its ok, but changing logos that have been there for decades or Uniforms is just ******.

SOmetimes is an upgrade, i wouldnt want the bucjs to go back to the lame original logo but most of the times changes are horrible, see the disgracefull logo and uniforms the rockets got in teh second half of the 90s.


I hope sixers really make it and STICK to that for long and not make it a one season or two fashion act.


I would be happy if some other teams followed their example:

Celtics: No more Black letters they are HORRIBLE stick to canon green and white.

Hawks: Go back to Hawk silouette logo and to Dominiques era Uniforms ( i would accept green logo and maravic era green uniforms, whatever except for horrible grey theyh ahve now.

Washington: stop acting like stupid hippies on LSd, go back to BULLETS and striped uniforms.

Bucks: Keep logo but go back to 70s uniforms ( i love the alternate jersey its just ivnersing the colours of the sway kit of that era) or to the green and lime from 80s).

ROckets: GO back to championship era logo and Uniforms, one of the ebst ever in the league.

Mavs: Go back to original logo and green uniforms Blackman era.

Spurs: Use Silver home and Black away.

Lakers: True lakers dont wear WHITE, ditch those horrible sunday dresses, or make them black.

Suns: Keep logo use 80s uniform.

Warrior: THE CITY logo and uniforms, Yellow home Blue away.

WOlves: Ditch will e coyote and go back to original CLASSY logo and uniforms.

NUggets: Go back to best logo and best uniforms ever, The city line ones , the balck uniform bnot the blue.

Sonics: go back to seattle and go back to championship logo and uniform.

I think this Sonics jersey is one of the all time bests. Of course the Sonics aren't around anymore, but if Seattle gets a new team, they should use these jerseys.

Eh, I thought the current ones were okay, especially after they added the red trim, but the old school uni is okay, too.

I used to love the Phoenix Suns unis in the 70's and 80's, would love to see the 76ers do a Philly version of that.

Sixers have bigger probs than the uniforms... they need to focus on the coaching and moving Elton Brand

The only thing uglier than that jersey was the logo they used during that era.

The true sonics Logo and Uniform is that from the last 70s to the first nineties.
