The LI Nets logo is awful. The "ets" looks like a pale imitation of the "ets" in the Mets' script while the "n" is super sloppy.

The LI Nets Logo always reminded me of teams that played in the ABA 2000 league. Something always didn't look professional about this logo...

They should have used the script that appeared on their jerseys at two different times in their history.

This logo is far superior to their G-league counterpart. Unis still suck except for the pride fauxbacks.

I haven't read past this post yet, but I assume someone has made a Cleveland Cavaliers FC joke already, right?

IMO the Cavaliers are the ones that are allowed to use shield as a logo.

^ Yea, saw that too a couple days ago. That's a just a marketing logo for this offseason. Decent idea, though. Maybe helping to transition people to the "shield" look of next season?

Has it ever bothered anyone else that the 3D rendering on the C appears to be off? Like shouldnt all the shadow navy areas be angled in the same direction? 

 

it depends on what you're going for. is it a painters shadow like you might see on a hand painted sign? is this meant to be a 3d horseshoe-like object? and is that object tilted backwards? either way, the NBA logos of this era were created by anything but a master craftsman.

Does it even need the drop shadowing? A logo could be outlined or have a 3D/drop shadow... but it should never have both.

 

Yeah, the version with a simple stroke outline, as seen on the front of their black jersey, is much, much better than the wonky 3D/shadow version.

It bothers me more that the C is only used in the logo and is not part of any wordmarks.

Also spotted this Tyus Jones jersey on the Timberwolves' Instagram page. Not sure if it's their new jerseys or a crappy replica.

That's just the backside of the replica version of their current (now old, I suppose) away jersey. See here:

Ok, was just making sure.... Those side panels are huge and that's what threw me off.

I noticed something odd about the Blazers' cap in '47's Triple Rush series. It uses their new global logo with the city name and team nickname below the pinwheel, but there are noticeable differences between the "PORTLAND" wordmark on the cap and what was actually unveiled. Compare this:

IMG_4496.PNG.ee6a66a18d88eaba823db78d0067dd5e.PNG

With the actual logo:

IMG_4497.thumb.PNG.6ad5c8a1d3ab5c3dba7a49034a12ff3b.PNG

The differences are especially evident with the 'R' and 'A', as well as the lack of the tails on the 'P' and 'T' on the cap. It's tough to say whether the error is limited to the cap that was used for the product photos, or if all of the hats actually feature the wrong "PORTLAND" wordmark. It also makes you wonder if the wordmark on the cap was an early version that the team eventually decided against (though it seems rather generic, so I doubt it), or if it was strictly an error in the manufacturing process.

NBADLeague.com lists the Clippers' minor league team as the "ACC Clippers" and it's kind of driving me nuts. The "Agua Caliente Clippers... Clippers?"

This is a much better logo than what the main team has.

 

Better idea, worse execution.
