PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers are going retro.
The Sixers have changed their logo and colors to revive the traditional "76ers basketball" logo and the red, white and blue color scheme.
The logo, last used during the 1996-97 season, consists of a color scheme originally established in 1963 and used during the Sixers' two championship seasons in 1966-67 and 1982-83.
This is the first major logo change for the Sixers since 1997-98, when the logo was modernized to incorporate black, silver and gold into a stylized "76ers" that featured a red and silver star to the left and a gold ball with blue stripes below.
The new logo includes a rectangular court-shaped enclosure around the ball with "PHILADELPHIA" along the bottom and silver shaping the perimeter.
