With the actual basketball product on the court looking pretty nice to start the abreviated 2011-12 season, it’s safe to look forward to some of the other changes the new ownership will unveil at Friday night’s home opener against the Pistons.

The Sixers announced a couple of the minor changes to the in-game experience this afternoon. The Sixers Dance Team will expand to 20 ladies from the previous 12 and will be renamed the “Sixers Dream Team.” The Dunk Squad will also be renamed the “Sixers Flight Squad” and will expand from 4 to 9 dunkers.

Oh, and the dancers will get new outfits. Sweet.

“We
hope Philadelphia enjoys the Sixers Dream Team and Sixers Flight
Squad,” said Aron. “With new choreography, new music, new lighting, new
costumes and a dramatic increase in the size of
the performing troupe, we’re confident the Sixers Dream Team will
provide an energetic enhancement to the fan experience at Philadelphia
76ers home games. Similarly, more than doubling the size of our dunk
team, now known as the Sixers Flight Squad, is sure
to thrill our fans with their extraordinary acrobatic talent.”
