2012-13 NBA Logo & Uniform changes

Recommended Posts

I never thought I'd see "dominant" and "the bobcats" come up in the same thread before.

Bobcats have had so many identities for a team that's done nothing. Stop investing in brand changes, and invest in a good management system, and players

Any news on the rockets ever going ketchup and mustard again?! The stros seem to be going back to the good ole days with orange and navy and ever since the rockets went from their classic red and yellow they haven't sniffed the finals. Hopefully the alt they brought out a couple years back ends up being the template for a rebrand. The logo isn't bad but throw the old school basketball logo behind it as it looked in the anniversary logo with some red and yellow and I think you have a winner.

New cavs court posted by Gilbert on twitter. Giant C at halfcourt, most of the rest looks the same.

Cavaliers new court. Downgrade. I thought we were slowly moving away from the aggressive script and "C" logos...

Amazingly, it's worse than their previous courts. Bland as hell, with the garish too-light stain. Also, the C at center court no long fits their identity. Not only is it too big, but in that context (by itself) it doesn't even look like a C. It just looks like a random swoosh design you would find on some corporate letterhead.

Well that doesn't match the jerseys at all. If they want to emphasis that C as a secondary logo then put it in a gold circle or something so it actually looks like a secondary logo. Right now it just reminds me of Lebron era jerseys.

Yeah, that not only looks bad but it doesn't fit with their current identity. They've done everything right with the uniforms, but haven't gotten the court right since the redesign. I know that's partly due to the NBA's policy on new logos, but every other team that's kept around their old logo has done just fine putting their "secondary" logo on the court.

This is much better than the cluster#%&$ last season for sure.

The Nuggets will be wearing their new alternate jersey 18 times this season, all of them home games. Seems a little much considering that's nearly half the games.

They should, that is a great look.

The fact that they're wearing those so much this year makes me wonder if they're setting the table for new primaries based on that design.

Why the Cavs needed to change the court again is beyond my understanding. The previous court was fine as it was. They only needed to update the key (remove the college lines). This one is horrendous, the C at center court is far too big and different stain 3-point areas looked more interesting.

They already had removed the lines. Change for change sake, and in the wrong direction. Why keep changing it every year? Its absurd, and I thought they were going away from the hideous C. As has been stated ad nauseum, it doesn't fit their improved identity. Oh, Gilbert.

Can I make a "he should've used comic sans" joke?

That C is used three different times on the uni and is part of the official logo. Both sides of the shorts and back of jesery above name. To me its an upgrade. The crossed swords were never used anywhere else, so it seemed out of place.

And let's face it: the script from the Lebron-era look was far superior.

When approximately NBA media site will be updated? I am new to that section and I thought they were going to update sooner.

No idea but they've been notoriously inaccurate. Last year, especially. There were several alternates and other various things that were not included. Really the only best way is to be one of those big-wigs who gets everything months ahead of time...

Yea, don't understand what they're doing with this "C". It doesn't fit in with any of their current brand identity.

Agreed. That was a mean look for Cleveland.
