Oh, okay. That's just an ESPN-only logo for marketing. I've seen them do similar things with other teams in the Playoffs this season. I wouldn't mind that as an actual logo, though.

 

It's on twitter too if you write a post using the #LakeShow. It could just be something the Lakers are rolling out more frequently.

I just tried it on Twitter, and the logo that pops up is the one that's on the jacket (which is slightly different than ESPN's version).

I'm thinking there will be low crown or 39thirty versions...there were like 15 different versions for the NFL draft hats...

 

There's no reason the main caps shouldn't be 3930s...you know a nice clean fitting hat that anyone can wear.  The high crown stuff looks completely ridiculous on most people.

Better than this year's NFL draft hats, but that's not saying much. New Era really has a hard-on for the chrome and oversized logos, apparently. Oh well, they still could've been much worse (and probably will be in years to come).

 

Are those brims velour?

That Celtics brim is a little creepy. You glance up and you've got this leprechaun winking at you.

 

That's a detail you don't want a zoom in on.

They give the draftees options. For example, in this past NFL draft draftees were given options to wear 59Fifties, 39Thirties, and 59Fifty Low Profiles.

 

I get the feeling that you just dislike 59Fifties, which is completely fine, but the majority of draftees in both the NFL and NBA prefer them. And honestly, I see people walk around in high-brim caps all the time and I think it suits them well.

I look like a dorky suburban dad wearing a 39thirty, so to each their own. After years of busy, overly detailed Adidas hats I'm happy to see New Era's (mostly) clean design sense take over. That said, this mix of diamond era mesh crown and velour brim is a nasty textural clash.

New Pistons logo.jpg

Okay??? Are you suggesting this as a possible fix for their new logo or what? If you are, I'd say that's significantly worse than what they just unveiled. Also, there's a thread dedicated to the Pistons' new logo, so you probably should've posted it there (or even in the concepts forum if that's what this is intended to be).

The ball in the new Pistons Logo looks weird. 

 

It's because it's a strange angle to show a basketball. There's a reason most other logos do sort of a diagonal perspective of the basketball, the lines appear more "correct" to the eye.

Anybody else we waiting for to reveal their new logo??

Cavs for sure, though their new logos and wordmarks likely won't be unveiled until mid-to-late June or possibly even early July. Of the other teams that are either rumored or confirmed to be making changes, I'm not sure which, if any, will be making changes to their logos. The Clippers definitely aren't though, as they're just changing the uniforms.

Pacers? Unless there's only the alternate logo that came out already. I remember there was going to be a surprise team with changes next season, but not sure if it was logo, uniform or both.

So far we have: Cavs, Pacers, Clippers, Wolves and Blazers confirmed to get new uniforms. I recall hearing something about the Suns too at one point. Let's not forget all the jersey ads and a supposed new template for all NBA jerseys. Things are going to get interesting.

Cavs are really milking what's left of the Lebron era, eh? 

 

I cant ever remember a team that's been a year after year contender/defending champs that has changed their logo + jersey and wordmarks in midst of it.

Rockets did it but it was preplanned and they couldn't stop it. Also, this is a special situation where Nike's taking over for Adidas. Can't remember if any teams did it when Champion took over, when Nike and Starter and Puma joined the fold, and again when Reebok took over.
