This sure looks like a Sixers red alternate uniform in NBA 2K

After a somewhat blurry image appeared on a Chinese website a week or so back featuring a red Sixers uniform, there was speculation that it could be an alternate jersey for the upcoming season.

You can see that image below courtesy of Conrad Burry who describes himself as a content creator at @sportslogosnet.

Burry followed up that report today with what he believes to be a confirmation from the NBA 2K video game of a pretty snappy looking new red uniform with a more script-like font across the front.

The Sixers unveiled two of their four new Nike uniforms back in the beginning of August -- the Association and Icon editions -- so the image of a red jersey you see above could certainly be one of the planned alternates.

Here's what Jess Camerato wrote at the time:

In addition to the “Association” and “Icon” jerseys, every team will have a uniform inspired by the community and another based on the NBA players’ mindsets. These editions will be revealed over the upcoming months.

And what the Sixers had to say:

“We are confident that the next two jerseys we unveil will additionally capture the spirit of this historic city, the imagination of new Philadelphia, and the passion of our loyal fans,” Sixers chief sales & marketing officer Chris Heck said. “Before the 2017-18 season has even begun, our 'Welcome to the Moment’ campaign has generated national recognition and acclaim, and we look forward to continuing the momentum as the season progresses.”

We're trying to confirm that these are indeed legit but I think Sixers fans will be pretty pleased if they are.

In somewhat unrelated news, the 2K video game has also gifted us with this pretty sweet handshake commercial featuring none other than one Joel Hans Embiid.

Kevin Hart uses curious recruiting tactic to get LeBron to Philly


Kevin Hart uses curious recruiting tactic to get LeBron to Philly

Kevin Hart is one of the most well-known Philadelphia sports fans in the world.

He made a scene at the Super Bowl while showing support for the Eagles.

So it's no surprise when TMZ asked him about LeBron James and his 76ers, Hart lit up a bit, even going so far as to say he has already attempted to recruit him to Philly.

"I sent him $40. He didn't accept it," Hart said. "I really did try. I sent him 40 dollars and I said come to Philly."

"He said, 'kiss my ass!'"

"I don't think he's going anywhere," Hart added.

Probably not if $40 is the best we as a city have to offer.

Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey


Loser Colin Cowherd pays off bet, wears Sixers jersey

The Philadelphia 76ers as a team, and Joel Embiid specifically, reminded the world last night that FS1's Colin Cowherd is quite often full of it when they won their 40th game of the season.

We wrote about this last night when Jojo poked fun at Cowherd for his preseason assertion that Sixers wouldn't sniff 40 wins. But today Cowherd held up his end of the preseason bet by rocking a No. 21 Sixers jersey during his The Herd show.

Cowherd's co-host Kristine Leahy posted video of the frequently wrong analyst admitting he'd lost and saying he'd own up to it, eventually.

"I'd love to have [Embiid] on this show anytime he wants," Cowherd said today. "I made a bet. I lost. I'm not going to welch."

But then he spoke about not being able to find a jersey that fit while Leahy was wearing one that would clearly fit him. They eventually found one and he put it on.

"They deserve love," Cowherd said.

Winning sure feels good. All kinds of winning.
