I still think of that as the Pacers logo. It's funny, my mind is permanently trapped in 1988 for some teams.

The old Golden State logos are great. The one that just says the city and shows a bridge is awesome.

re: Evolution of NBA Team Logos
Look at all the changes teams made in the 90's. Its like they just discovered there are more colors than those on the basic color wheel. Some of them aren't that bad, but i hope some people were fired over the atrocities they created. Why would anyone put teal pink and orange in a spurs logo or change the piston blue to an aqua color? I guess the designers thought the colors of the late 80's and early 90's were there to stay.

I never thought of that. It's like the only sport that features the ball for most teams. Weird.

The "new" kings logo is probably the only one that I prefer over its predecessors. ehhh Memphis too. The old vancouver one looked ridiculous.

I actually watched an old 90's game Lakers vs Bulls and Shaq and Rodman were like fighting during the game..pure entertainment....it was fun watching basketball back then...all kinds of stuff would happen on a nightly basis. Now its like...mehhhh..NBA basketball gets good during the playoffs and thats bout it...

The old spurs logo incorporates those colors because they go with the Mexican culture that heavily influences San Antonio.

they made a great save

so did golden state

and it's not hard for the pistons to improve considering their old logo basically is the symbolic king of shitty NBA logos

I love the simplicity of the old Blazers logo. It's just awesome. I'm okay with giving it the tilt, but they've done well to pretty much leave it alone.

Seeing all of these shitty logos makes me appreciate the Pelicans logo even more. It is among the very best, so you couldn't be any more wrong on this.
