NBA logo flaw

Recommended Posts

There's one thing I noticed about the classic NBA logo that kind of makes it outdated, by 2019 standards.

 

Players today wear knee-length shorts...

The League's primary logo still uses the Jerry West silhouette, in which the uniform shorts are noticeably shorter...

The NBA primary logo doesn't match the current style of uniform at all.

 

Why point it out? The NHL & NFL applied facelifts to their classic logos over time, without ruining their essence.

 

It's time for the NBA to follow suit.

But didn't players wear really baggy uniforms in the 1990's? The style of the uniforms are going to likely change constantly, so that would mean you'd have to constantly change the logo... which would be super tedious to always do.

I don’t see any flaw in using the actual silhouette of Kerry west and what he wore.  If any league tried to set up a logo that way and keep it consistent with the current style then the logo would never stay the same.

I guess the opinion I have about the logo is a unpopular opinion.

If we changed logos due to the items no longer being the standard we'd have to change them every year.

The flaw is that logo is jerry west

He's a crap GM but he was a great player, otherwise the league wouldn't have picked him.

High school players in Texas are starting to wear their shorts, shorter and shorter. I’m seeing it trickle into college when they move up too.

I disagree about the NHL.

Also the only logo that actually is similar to the NBA's is MLB's and they haven't updated it.

Actually they just did, although it was just the colors.

If by crap GM you mean one of the best...

 

Won 8 titles as an executive, 2x Executive of the year, GM for the Showtime Lakers in the 80s, brought Kobe, Shaq and Phil Jackson to LA, turned the Grizzlies around, retired before joining the Warriors as a consultant and is credited with preventing them from trading Klay Thompson and Draymond Green in a deal for Kevin Love, and as part of the Clippers has turned their outlook of life post Lob City around and turned them into a premier free agent destination for this upcoming off season.  West is considered one of the best front office minds in the history of basketball, and was a hell of a player to go along with that.

But sadly, that brought in all the Standardized Logos and generic everything, so that sucks.

I still attach him to the horrible Clippers teams so that kind of colored my opinion. But yes he did play a part in the Warriors team that exists now, I had just forgotten about him.

Because the NFL and NHL logos don't feature human silhouettes. It's easier. Plus if that's the case, why aren't you arguing for the MLB logo to be changed either? Sleeves are longer. Helmets aren't the same shape. The silhouette is an homage to the league's history.
