New Sacramento Kings Logo Unveiled

Recommended Posts

The Kings could go one of two ways here. My money is on the red/blue combo.

I like all of them except the dribbling lion. Remove the ball from that logo and it would look much better. 

 

Favorite logo of the set has to be the lion head/ball, love it

how so? like, its too retro?

If anything, not retro enough. The lettering is a little too futuristic. Now if it were Futura, we'd be somewhere, but I think I'd have gone with good old Wide Latin.

 

I hope they go back to the powder blue and red. Again, it was a great color scheme for the Houston Oilers and Quebec Nordiques, so it'd be good to see here. I'm over the purple and black.

There's no reason they can't do purple/blue instead of red/blue. That's what I'm hoping for. Then use either red or royal blue as a tertiary color for trim.

I liked royal purple and powder blue for Utah. I don't like it for Sacramento, where it's a compromise that leaves no one happy.

 

Instead of going to dark blue and light blue like everyone else was in 2004, the Jazz should have just stripped the palette down to purple and blue while dropping the green, copper, and black. I can't tell you much I hated those uniforms and yet some mooks here were like "I love it, it screams Utah." It was practically MS WordArt and Impact on a blank jersey! It didn't scream anything!

I like Purple/Light Blue best for Utah, and it would've been a good progression from the 1997-2004 set, but Purple/Copper/Black could've worked, too. Some combo of Forest Green/Light Blue/Purple could even work today in their current set. </tangent>

I will fight anyone who does not think the lion/ball combo is fantastic.

 

It's nice, but that ball needs work. It looks like they just slapped it on there. Maybe even remove most (if not all) of the ball lines.

The Utah Jazz tried purple and powder blue a decade ago and it was one of the worst color combos I can ever recall. I hope the Kings steer clear of that.

Is that how you remember it? It was more like navy and powder blue.

Was that actually navy? It was definitely not a good look for them, nonetheless.

Two decades ago, they had purple and powder blue (excluding all those multi colored trims).

Yeah, the logo had purple but the uniforms were navy and powder blue. I (and many others) kept saying they should have swapped the navy out for purple and ran with it.

Agreed.  I think its a horrible combo, and I don't want to see anymore red or blue in the league.  Stick to the purple and black as the main colors. I wonder if there's any chance they add a new 3rd trim color to the scheme they've never had before?

I blame the bland jerseys (aside from the light blue alternates) more than anything, personally. The colors could work under a cleaner set IMO.

Yea. I can totally see Sac going with this and clustering up the entire set.

I've always loved purple and light blue since the Jazz had that floor for the All star game in 1993.

There's just something about the lines in that crown that just bugs me to no end. :censored:, even this would've been better.Kings New Purple:Black Fixed.png

 

I mean, not really, but still better IMO.
