I like it a lot. Is there any way you could maybe morph the sails into the "LAC" wordmark they have? The outermost/top blue sail represents a C, and the back blue sail, with a bit of a touch-up, might be made into an L, and maybe the red in between can be some part of an A? It's hard to do, but it could look pretty sweet.

Not saying that it doesn't, though ... it's pretty sharp as is.

*cracks open a history book...pays to have a college degree in this plop :lol: *

A clipper is a type of sailing boat...big ones too...they were common back in the 19th Century for supply runs to California from the East Coast (no railroad going across the continent at the time and no Panama Canal either..meaning, they had to go the LONG way (as in around Cape Horn at the tip of South America and back up)..)...

The team took the name when they moved from Buffalo (where they started their NBA lives as the Braves) to San Diego in the late 70s (made sense in a way...SD's right on the Pacific and is a major port...besides, "San Diego Braves" just didn't fly I guess...:lol: ) and kept it when they moved to LA...

Hope that helped clear that up....

As for the logo....LOVE IT! THAT's what the ClipJoint should be using...

and to just add onto that...the ships got the name "Clippers" due to the fact that they seemed to just "clip" right along in the waters. many clippers broke travel and speed records in their golden era. then there were those whole steamship and railroad things that kinda killed them off

Oh yes...SWEET LOGO!!

I always thought this team would need a new logo but it wonderful of how you incorporated an antual clipper ship with part of the current logo. Excellent Job! Send this concept to the team (trademark it first).

unsolicited concepts sent to the team is the quickest way to get it declined. just a little heads up.

If thats the case - Whats the quickest way for it not to? How does that work? PUMA spent 2 years redoing the ST L Rams identity.
