I presume this is already being discussed in a mega thread, but it's worth a conversation on its own: the Trail Blazers unveiled new logos yesterday. The article on NBA.com includes this delightful animation of their logo history: I like the update a lot: farewell ugly rhombus; good riddance pointless spiky things. But this doesn't actually fix the main problem I have with the logo, which is that it isn't a P yet could so easily be. I know, it's a B for Blazers, but city initials are always better than nickname initials. Besides, the NBA is even using the pinwheel as a P in an ad running across the top of the page: What is that supposed to be? "bresented by Moda"? "qresented by Moda"? Flip the pinwheel around, and it would be so much better.
I recall reading an article about a possible modernization of the current primary mark of the Trail Blazers from Portland a couple of months ago. As far as I can remember, the people in charge of the team were talking about keeping the basic shape of the good old and famous logo. It's definitely hard (if not impossible) to keep the main shape of the logo and not ending up with a final result that's tilted again. So I decided to give the NBA-friendly roundel a shot. The current design would still be easily recognizable while the overall impression would be cleaner, but, sure, more generic.
