Jordan has mentioned in a letter to fans that the colors may not necessarily be teal and purple, and the logo may change as well.
IMO, you can't bring back the Hornets without bring back Teal, Purple, and the Hugo logo. Sure, let the brand evolve in the next few years, but bringing back what people remember the Charlotte Hornets to be will bring a peak in what this move was made for in the first place: excitement and embracing of the team.
If Jordan screws this up, he's cemented himself as the biggest owner failure of NBA history, in terms of branding.
I really think they try to put too many items/elements in theses marks anymore. This causes the overall mark to be short in height and difficult to read at a distance. They should focus on a nice simple script. Maybe the National League could use a similar script to what the Mets currently use, while the American League would have the road tiffany style font that the Mets use.
Agreed. It's an "over complication" of what should be a simple graphic element.
