Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and guard Ben Simmons and guard JJ Redick react late in the fourth quarter of their 117-101 loss to the Boston Celtics in game one of the second round of the 2018 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden.

The Philadelphia 76ers now have two bona fide NBA stars — their own commercials prove it, right? — who figure to sell a ton of jerseys in the coming years.

We may have gotten a good look at what will be a popular choice for fans of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid this year.

On Monday, images of Nike's NBA City Edition jerseys leaked on Instagram, showing what look to be this year's alternate uniforms for a handful of teams.

The City Edition line was created by Nike to pay homage to the character of the NBA's 30 cities. They're often stylized beyond a team's color scheme and appear each year in a handful of games.

"The Nike NBA City Edition uniforms represent insights and emotion from the court to the upper deck to the cities’ streets, in pursuit of a unique way to capture each team and its city in a way that respects the past and present of the clubs while also positioning them for the future," the company explains. 

Here's a look at what's in store for this year's Sixers alternates.


The grey is a bit unexpected, but the subtle nod to the original 13 colonies is tasteful and minimal, similar to last year's City Edition unis. 

The Sixers confirmed Tuesday that the leaked images were authentic. 

One of these days, Philadelphia will get a wild alternate uniform in the spirit of the Timberwolves' new Prince-themed jerseys.
