In addition to the Sixers' complete uniform redesign unveiled last month, it looks like the team will be getting a Christmas Day-specific jersey too, per uniform aficionado Conrad Burry:

The idea of a Sixers team that combined for 37 wins over the last two seasons getting one of the NBA's marquee games on Christmas Day is laughable and a bit confusing, but Burry followed his initial up and indicated that all 30 teams would be receiving these festive jerseys:

As for the uniforms themselves, I really dig them. I think cream is a truly underutilized color in terms of teams' jersey designs. The Phillies' Sunday afternoon cream alternate is one of the best in baseball. The Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid-era Kansas team made great use of cream as well, and it's a reason I'm so high on the Bucks' new uniforms too.

Even though all teams will be get something similar, It's a color that works well for historic franchises trying to establish some sense of nostalgia, working that for both the Phillies and Jayhawks.
