The Sixers' decision to opt for black, Boathouse Row-themed alternate jerseys for this upcoming season have been, uh, controversial to say the least. While the conversation around them has been divisive in Philly, I'm left wishing that online graphic designer and jersey aficionado Conrad Burry was in charge of the franchise's uniform decisions.

It's the Allen Iverson-era logo with an improved red jersey over their current cursive Sixers font threads. It's both retro and futuristic simultaneously. I need a Tyrese Maxey one stat.
I'd also like at least 20 jerseys from his entire set too, viewable here:
This wouldn't be a real article if I didn't drop a take and rank all 32 jerseys. Here we go:
