Oh, dear god, that N is horrible...

 

Just the N? The uneven weights in the A are driving me crazy.

The N was the first thing I saw... Had to go back and look at the A to notice the uneven weights.

It's like they blew up the Text version of the font (which has those awkward looking ink traps) instead of using the Display version, which has more appropriately-mitered joints.

While they're at it when are the completely outdated conference logos going to get jettisoned?

What about the upside down B?

I'm still failing to see this, they look even to me, I'm not seeing it as upside down at all.

The B has a bigger "loop" on top than on the bottom...usually the smaller "loop" is on top.

1 is the B as displayed in the logo; 2 is the B vertically flipped.

Thanks for the visual, I could not see that before. They literally looked the same to me before. Still it will take me some serious looking at to notice, it's not like a "can't unsee" sort of deal.

lol I can't unsee it now!!

If you turn it sideways, it looks like as if Robin (from Batman) is looking left and right.

I still don't think it's upside down. Look at the layout of the N and A. The top of the letters are longer than the bottom. It's just the font.

Watching NBA Summer League on ESPN..they are using the new NBA logo on the video graphics packages, and it's on the logos on the court.

 

Doesn't look bad.

Not a fan of this logo update...the font doesn't look attractive IMO, but I guess I'll have to open up to it.

I did do a mockup of how it most likely will affect the TNT logo. Not a perfect Paint job, but I did it nonetheless. It's a meh for me

The new logo translates poorly to the NBA TV logo. It looks like someone made an error in photoshop.

It's really fixing something that wasn't broken.

How long did they have the old one? 40 years? It never looked outdated.
