Perhaps no player has come to Philadelphia and gained the city’s confidence faster than AJ Brown. And I did it with so much bragging and ease. It looks like he’s got his new town and, more importantly, fans of the Eagles.
on Saturday, Brown was photographed Entering Hard Rock Stadium in Miami wearing the Sixers jersey. Not just any style of uniform, though. The Pro Bowl receiver was wearing a No. 3 Allen IversonThe sleek, classic black shirt that defined Philly’s Hall of Famer glory days.
Iverson and the Sixers He rode those jerseys all the way to the NBA Finals in 2001 before losing to Kobe Bryant and the Los Angeles Lakers.
he was there push the nostalgia To bring back the star-studded black shirt as an alternative in recent months. They will not be worn during the 2022-23 season, but there is hope to see them again one day.

But it’s safe to assume the black outfit is in the conversation to be worn as an alternative the next time the Sixers are allowed to do so.
In a November 2020 interview with Uni-Watch, Heck said he “totally despises” the black Iverson-era jerseys, called it “blasphemy” for introducing silver and gold into the team crest, and said, “Come to hell or water.” We won’t go back to that outfit.”

Brown beat his new coaching staff and locker room impressively and scored points with the Eagles fans. In fact, the 100 Million Dollar Game Maker Maybe he does this part better.
Coach Nick Siriani was asked if Brown fit in with the team’s culture, both off and on the field. his answer? automatic respect.
“He’s great. Fits great. There’s obviously a guy coming in, the amount of plays he’s given in this league, he’s automatically respected by everyone,” Siriani told reporters. Training, closely fit with our culture. We want to get better every day in practice. We want competition. We want to communicate with our youth.
