NBA Changes 2015-16 Season

Recommended Posts

Going back to the Bulls logo for a second, is that "Windy City" logo not an official mark?

I would guess 499 of the last 500 times I've seen a bulls head logo on a hat it's been the "Windy City" one. I don't quite get why it's so prevalent on hats but not really elsewhere.

I really hate that logo, btw.

Yeah I do too. The worst part of it is that the Concinnati politician who called Chicago "The Windy City", was referring to the pretentiousness of Chicago, not really the weather.

Actually, it specifically referred to the blowhard politicians, not the people.

But yes, that Bulls logo is only used by Mitchell and Ness, as far as I know. It sucks. You see a bunch of those caps any time you go into a Marshalls around here. Like someone said, I guess they do that since the Bulls don't have any past logos. The worst is when they render it with reversed colors and a black bull face.

Does anyone have a link to what's coming out for Fall 2015 Adidas stuff? I've seen catalogs on here before, but that even seemed pushed out to Spring 2016. Any other go-to supplier previews for M&N, New Era?

The Clippers' new court:

This actually doesn't look half-bad! The only thing I don't like is the swooshes on either side of the "LA CLIPPERS" wordmarks - they're unnecessary and don't look good.

They should've put the C from the CLA logo around the court and put the LA from that logo in wood stain across the whole court.

That Windy City Bulls logo is the worst... and is almost always reversed.

I was looking for a new cap a few years back and so many of them used that as a primary or secondary logo. Ugh.

That Clippers court kind of reminds me of the Heat's court - black and white on the outside, color on the inside. Doesn't look terrible, actually.

Why did they use Agency for the baseline wordmarks instead of the official wordmarks? SMH.

Nothing about this rebrand other than the promotion of it has been good in any way, shape or form.

Black is so out of place in this rebrand, it's not even funny. The lines look so stupid on the baseline, and are basically just thrown on. This rebrand pisses me off so much. That court is bottom five in the NBA, ahead of only Houston.

I love the description of the two tone key ... UNIQUE?

Wow the Clippers court is incredible compared to the uniforms and logos. Very surprised. Hopefully Toronto does the same and impress us with their court reveal.

The whole circle in the paint area should be blue, then the out of bounds area should be blue and we're all good.

A. The same reason they switched to these atrocities. (I'd love to find out...)

B. They're clueless clowns who really think this whole redesign is seriously awesome.

C. A & B

I'd say C...

Maybe the court was the first thing that Balmer saw of this rebrand, lol? Even though it looks fairly good, all in all the identity still looks generic like a create-a-team from a video game or a placeholder.

Making the LA blue in C IPPER N TION kind of makes it disappear on the black sideline.

Has that always been a fan name or are they just jumping on the bandwagon?

No offense to the members of "Clipper Nation" here. I've just seen it co-opted by fanbases everywhere (Bulls Nation included), but it isn't always made official.

Just a simple hop, skip, and a jump onto the "_____ nation" bandwagon.

IIRC, it originated with the 2006 playoff run, so it's been in use for a while.

The Raptors are making changes, guys. I can feel it.

Why else would they wait this long to unveil their uniforms? Generally new uniforms are unveiled before the draft, yeah?

I think they heard some of the negative backlash when the new logo/details of the uni's came out and decided to make a u-turn to run back and make some last second tweaks. Fingers crossed for purple. I'm still holding out hope. Fingers crossed.
