Could the Piston's secondary logo be a basketball based on the Joe Lewis Monument?

I guess that makes sense but it was executed really bad.

 

The second one looks a bit decent.

Even if it was the case it looks like absolute crap. 1990 video games create-a-team logos looked better than this :censored:.

I knew that he knew that the new Pistons logo with just a D inside it wasn't going to be the secondary or tertiary, but I didn't know that he had seen these...

 

These are awful. I'd rather have the horse (power) head.

Typically for logos like these, do teams hire independent designers or does Nike provide them with a team or something? I always wondered how this works. Can I just create some logos myself and send it to them? 

 

Thanks in advance, curious about the process.

It's a team by team thing. For example, the new logos for the Wolves were designed by Rare Design, who also worked on the recent branding updates of the Hawks, Kings, and Hornets (in collaboration with Jordan Brand). The Cavs' new logos were designed by Nike, and the Blazers' new logos were mostly designed in-house. And I believe the Bucks' recent branding update was done by a smaller design firm from Brooklyn. I'm not sure about these new Pistons logos. But more than anything it's pretty much just dependent on the desires of each individual franchise.

Bucks 50th anniversary logo.  Not bad...nice and clean and not overdone. Not sure if there will be room to cram this on the jerseys or not, but it will be available on other merchandise.

The OCD in me hates this logo because everything is pushed off-center so that the upper left corner of the '5' isn't too close to the edge of the circle.

No. It's a hood ornament of a car.

It looks more like a speeding locomotive, or an extended scepter, or basketball sperm. 

 

Regardless, it's *bad*.  And, it's off-brand.  No one can clearly figure out what it is, or what it's suppose to represent.  Is the ball whooshing through the D?  If so:  why introduce motion when the rest of the brand is static?

The Spurs were one of the few teams remaining without a basketball related primary/alt logo, yes?  Who is left without one?  Portland?

It's a horrible logo and it's not really necessary.  The whole thing makes no sense. 

 

The NBA has some of the best logos in sports...and then they have just some of the most brutal clunkers.  All of the Thunder logos, Clippers' whole set, new Pistons' secondaries, this piece of crap...just awful.

Portland, Chicago, and Houston are the only ones, I believe. Portland's new set doesn't include a basketball related logo, so it seems they'll still be on the list for years to come. And while Chicago used a basketball as a part of their center court logo up until a couple of seasons ago, it's never actually been a part of their logo package. I wouldn't anticipate that changing anytime soon, even if they make some tweaks to their set at some point. I could easily see Houston introducing a basketball related logo sometime in the future, especially since their logo history has already included some in the past. Whether they make some tweaks to their current logo and uniform packages or do a complete overhaul, I would be fairly surprised to not see them introduce a basketball related logo in the future.

It's like the NBA said to the Spurs "You have to have a secondary logo before next season" and they never submitted anything so it just defaulted to that.

Local reporter claims Timberwolves uniforms will be unveiled after the draft but before free agency starts - likely late June.

i know its in the future, but i wonder if the NBA is going to do something for there 75th anniversary season (which i think would be 21/22 since it would have been 25 years since 96/97)

If you didn't point this out, I would have never even noticed.  It's not off by much.
