Elton Brand’s Throwback Jersey

Jul 10, 2008, 2:50 PM EDT

After seeing the throwback jersey Elton Brand was sporting yesterday when introduced as the newest Sixer, we got to wondering which jersey he was wearing and whether it would be a staple on the Sixers this season. The Sixers PR people set us straight.

Elton was wearing and presented with the
throwback jersey and uniform that we wore last year as part of the league’s
Hardwood Classics nights.

It is a uniform that the team has worn in
the past, most recently and most often last year, and will continue to do so
for some games this season.

The old school block letters spelling "Sixers" on the front is reminiscent of Sir Charles days in Philadelphia. Hopefully, Mr. Brand can bring back some of those big man glory days for the Sixers.
