Or Knights as was somewhat rumored before the move.

Pretty interesting article about the Mavericks nearly rebranding twice in the 90’s. 

The first one looks like a more 90ified version of the current, the second one is just rough. Still have no idea why they put black on the logos only to have navy uniforms. Was black really that needed in the logo that they couldn’t replace it with navy once the NBA told them they couldn’t have black uniforms? 

 

And a new Mavs rebrand seems inevitable at this point, but I guess we’ll start that thread once it’s confirmed.

It's hilarious how a movie set in the NBA completely replaced the Clippers and it doesn't make a difference :P

Well, that’s happened before.  Substituting our a fictional team in place of a real one.

Of course, Malamud did that deliberately to fit the Arthurian take he was weaving. What was the other movie’s excuse?

No idea, honestly. It's possible that the NBA as a whole signed on for the deal but the Clippers and/or Lakers just said "no thanks."

Or maybe it was a roundabout homage to The Natural. The talisman of the main character even gets struck by lightning.

Hmm.

 

I think that’s more likely; licensing is usually done on a league-wide basis.  They license the image of the entire league, any fictional teams are a deliberate choice.

I know this doesn’t add to the thread, but I can’t quit looking at that swamp dragon and think that it had to be drawn by the friend of a friend who can give you a nice tattoo for $25
