76ers unveil new uniforms – with divisive red drop shadow (video)

The 76ers released their new uniforms this morning.

The biggest change? A red drop shadow.

Paul Lukas of Uni Watch nicely laid out before and after shots:

Hottake: Though the subtle drop shadow changes the overall look a surprisingly significant amount, the uniforms look equally good either way.

A gold “Brotherly Love” – which is what Philadelphia means in Greek – now appears near the bottom of the jersey:

But that won’t be visible when the jerseys are tucked in:

That might be for the better, as the non-team-color design element was distracting. The 76ers can be reminded of the significance of that phrase whenever they get dressed, then keep it in their shorts.
