Sixers' new uniforms aren't identical to 2000-01, but Iverson loves them originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
The Sixers are not bringing back the exact black uniforms they wore when they last won the Eastern Conference.
Thanks in part to Ben Simmons, though, they're going with something similar for their 2020-21 City Edition uniforms.
Here's a look at the jerseys, from ESPN's Zach Lowe. The Sixers also released this hype video.
The design right above "Philadelphia" is intended to replicate Boathouse Row, per Lowe. Simmons, who helped design the uniforms, told ESPN he insisted on adding in the red trim to an earlier black and blue design, since he feels blue and red is "synonymous with the Sixers."
There will also be an accompanying City Edition court.

Allen Iverson, the star of that beloved 2000-01 Sixers team, is a fan of this new design.
"I love 'em," Iverson told ESPN. "It's almost bittersweet. You look at them and you imagine yourself playing in them -- adding the headband, the wristband, the sleeve, trying to put your flavor on them."
Desron Dorset, the Sixers' vice president of business and fan development, told Lowe, "If I have my say, we will have those Iverson 2001 jerseys back in the cycle at some point."
