The 76ers unveiled their fourth and final "City Edition" uniform Wednesday, inspired by the Declaration of Independence to celebrate the revolutionary spirit of Philadelphia. "From the checkered racing stripe the encircled jersey number, the uniforms lend a design that keeps the eye dashing from detail to detail". To pay homage to the Hispanic communities in the Valley, the front logo reads "Los Suns" and a smaller message reads "Somos PHX" above the jersey tag.

"Gray, the color of unity, was incorporated in the uniform to signify the large regional fan base spread across New England that rallies behind the Celtics year in and out", Nike said.
