  1. Rebel Edition? Coming from the NBAsphere of all places?
  2. I put the even because the trope of a mediocre big applies to him less, not that I view him as being less of a player than TT and Javale haha Though frankly the gap isn't that big even if he was an allstar back in the day, it isn't like I am grouping those two with prime Hakeem
  3. NBA doesn't need to expand but if they do really only Seattle and Vegas are actual options. The league has no shortage of mediocre markets for their stars to begrudgingly play for a handful of years before whining themselves out of town, if they are gonna water down their product further they are only going to do so for a market worth going to and Louisville ain't it. Not every mid-sized city needs to have pro teams just because a few exceptions like Buffalo still exist as legacy markets
  4. Drummond really isn't good but Lebron has history of making trad bigs like TT, Javale, and even Big Z look much better than they really are. Probably more of an impactful move than the scavengers feasting on the carcass of the Magic or the Nets grabbing up a pair of washed PFs actually.
  5. I was wondering what I was looking at initially but I see the tri-corn hat a lot more than any elephant. Would make more sense too because the patriot motif fits the userbase more accurately than a symbol associated with an establishment they are against (neoconservatism)
  6. Feel like Phoenix makes sense as a city. MLS doesn't seem to face the same issues in transplant cities that the big 4 leagues do as seen in Atlanta, Orlando, and likely Miami once they get a real season in. Huge population and despite the transplant factor has shown to be a competent sports market, Coyotes aside. Think Vegas would be a matter of too much too soon imo, they just got shiny new objects with VGK and the Raiders and it wouldn't shock me if they got an NBA team within the next 10 years. San Diego makes sense too. Feels like a boring option but I get it: they probably don't want to cheer on LA teams and are a big city themselves. Louisville just feels like a Boise/Omaha/Tulsa level city. Guess their location makes sense and they'd be a feel-good market. I think Tampa would be a good addition too. Florida is a huge state with a lot of growth and even though Orlando and Tampa generally root for each others' pro teams they are pretty distinct cities, with Tampa particularly being an emerging market. I'd go PHX, SD, and Tampa here personally
  7. They should have kept the teal imo. I know they are gonna be thought of as the W Lakers essentially regardless but the extra color gave them more personality Logo itself it boring but whatever. This league just can't seem to keep itself away from mediocre and forgettable identities
  8. Was about time for Orlando to blow up this roster, they were truly sitting in purgatory. Also, this seems like the first time Ainge has traded for player since Monroe, wonder if he is feeling his seat finally getting warm
  9. I'll never understand this. Yes, Jordan and Montana never lost a championship, but that just means they choked earlier in the season which doesn't help their case at all. But, anything to discredit Lebron and Brady possibly being better than the childhood heroes of oldheads I guess.
  10. This could also be a case of the Texans knowing all along that Watson is a serial rapist and keeping it covered up for NFL reasons for years, only to let it be known via a third party once it has become apparent that he doesn't want to play ball anymore.
  11. Sounds very suspect all things considered, but I wouldn't dismiss it as a hoax right off the bat. It isn't inconceivable that a male celebrity that doesn't take well to hearing "no" for an answer happens to get a bit rapey with a commoner. Just because the lawyer has extra motivation to take the case doesn't mean the situation never happened.
  12. Probably the Bucs tbh, worked well for them Obviously an outlier - getting the GOAT QB, the GOAT TE, and a handful of other high level players for non-crippling price-tags aren't exactly annual occurrences. The Fins seem to win the offseason every couple years and look how that has worked for them.
  13. I like option 1 a lot. It fits the theme that they were trying to go with for their current set but fixes a lot of the issues and lets the colors show off. My only complaint is that the primary has a very awkward amount of empty space in it and that the marlin does not interact well with the rest of the elements. Option 2 is cool, though maybe too "time capsule-y" to be a full-time identity and is better suited as alts. The dugout jacket is approaching "shut up and take my money" status Interested to see what option 3 ends up being
  14. We really are living in an Onion world. The new one looks like a sticky note or tab more than packaging tape. But I guess at least it appeases the Godwin's law enthusiasts FAKE EDIT: I guess since we are trying hard to find things in places
  15. Eh, at least this one has character. Swap out the fisherman with the lighthouse logo and it becomes a pretty workable - albeit very 90's kitschy - look. The football style jerseys done for the Isles, Stars, Thrashers etc. are devoid of all personality and that makes them considerably worse than something that is merely dated.
  16. I mean, they are 22-11 and just happen to be on a slide when missing AD. Unless their "flaw" is them depending on a guy who gets chronically injured they should be fine, and pending someone else makes a huge move I'm still picking Lakes over the field right now
  17. Yeah, if a wizard comes over and says they can make you a god-tier athlete at any sport and you don't have issues with becoming famous then being an offensive-oriented soccer player would be the best choice. Guys like Messi and Ronaldo are basically at the very top of sports worldwide and as long as you can filter out the negative attention you are absolutely playing life on god-mode.
  18. I don't think so. If you are wondering why Big Cat was trending alongside Tiger it probably had to do with one of the Barstool guys being a dick about the situation (it wasn't Big Cat himself though)
  19. Are they gonna replace ND with a generic brand like FIFA and PES do with teams that they don't have rights to, or will they go totally without? If it is the former and they are just called Shamrock State or whatever I'm sure most won't care (actually probably so for the latter too)
  20. Seems like they got what they wanted in the end though Tenacious Karen-ing succeeds once again!
  21. I really dislike the way they outlined the stars with the tips being flattened. I get that there may have been one or two too many elements in their old logo but this seems like an obvious downgrade all around
