The Toronto Raptor use to be purple but they changed that when the mascot was constantly referred to as Barney the Dinosaur

re: Evolution of NBA Team Logos
The team's "pinwheel" logo, originally designed by the cousin of former Blazer executive Harry Glickman, is a graphic interpretation of two five-on-five basketball teams lined up against each other. One side of the pinwheel is red; the other side is silver (formerly black or white). The logo has gone from a vertical alignment to a slanted one starting in the 1991 season, creating a straight edge along the top[3]

also its suppose to look like a lower case t and b as somewhat.

A few thoughts:

Bulls logo is badass.

The Memphis Grizzlies and GS Warriors current logos are huge improvements over their immediate predecessors. I kind of like the old "The City" logo.

I also like the spurs changing to silver and black from the rainbow brite look.

I understand why the Bullets changed their name, but Wizards is just terrible and that logo is awful.
