The logo depicts the American icon valiantly leaping forward wielding a basketball as he dons his 76ers coat.

The logo can now be seen through the team’s website and is available for purchase on Adidas T-shirts. While the image will serve as the team’s secondary logo, there are no indications that it will appear on in-game apparel at any time soon.
