This started when I was underwhelmed by the Spurs new logo that leaked. I decided to try to make my own version, then I decided to work on more teams. Though for the other teams, I decided not to change much, instead going with small tweaks and edits. Anyway, these are what I came up with.
Note: I am not an expert and I only use photoshop. Don't expect too much.
SAN ANTONIO SPURS
As I said before, the new logo is too plain. I used to be all for removing the border but after seeing this, it feels like something is missing. It's just text with the spur on it. The spur logo itself isn't perfect, it kinda looks dated and having it tilted makes the spacing look wrong. I do like the change to a block font so I did the same with my design. I added an Alamo-inspired border and brought back the fiesta colors in a minor way. In the middle is the spur which is the secondary logo. I'm not 100% happy with it but it's the best I could do. I wanted to have it straight up so it would look uniform with the text. Hopefully you guys get the idea. Finally, on the right is the wordmark.
For the Hawks primary, I removed the unnecessarily thick roundel along with the 'basketball club' text. Added a normal shade of yellow, instead of whatever the hell they're currently using. For the secondary logo, I removed the weird looking flames on top of the ball and put the ATL logo inside.
NEW YORK KNICKS
No logo changes just recoloring. The blue they use is too light for me so I used darker blue, darker orange, and replaced the grey with cream. Also, I brought back the old New York wordmark, which is superior to the one they use today imo.
The Nets current set is terribly boring. I see what they were going for, but they executed it poorly. I kept the same theme while trying to add a bit more character. Brought back the navy/grey color combination of the New Jersey Nets.
I like there current primary but it's a little too busy. I removed the shield, the clunky wordmark, the unnecessary shading on the horse, and added a new font. The secondary is inspired by their old logo of an M with a cowboy hat.
No changes as I really like their stuff. I just made the pick axes the primary, and the mountain peak the secondary. Also got a new font.
Again, no change other than creating a secondary logo. I'm tired of the interlocking DP they use so I wanted to try something else. Ended up with this. I wanted it to look like the grilles of a car... obviously not the best execution but hopefully you get the idea.
GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS
They'll be moving to a new arena in San Francisco soon so I decided to update their logo accordingly. The golden gate bridge is now on the primary and the cable car is the secondary.
Red represents heat, I get it but red is so common in sports. I think the Miami Vice colors really represent South Beach well and make the team stand out.
The trend teams of adding black to their colorway needs to stop. Orange and purple works well and is unique so I removed all traces of black in the Suns set. Also removed the beveling and minimized the grey to outlines, giving a cleaner look overall.
