What about thunder makes you think about the color pink?

Nothing, that's why the dark grey, the color of a stormcloud, is there. The hot pink is shocking, like lightning.

At WHAT point did you look at this and think "I should post this for 100s of people to see"?

Hey, cut him some slack, it is a concept. I for one really like it! The colors, imo, look good together. It reminds me of the floridians colors almost. The logo could use some work, But I like the unis. Make the numbers on the back of the jerseys a little smaller and I think you got em down.

The typeface, logo, and design all say "ABA". Not ABA 2000, but from the 70s. Like a time warp.

It personally has more of a 90's feel to me, but I see where you're coming from.

I love the pink alt. Just make the letters on the front bigger, they look too small.

So patsox posted a flamingo concept with no pink in it, and cappital posts a concept with all pink for a name (thunder) that has no connection to pink whatsoever. For some reason I find that amusing.

First, "Shocker Pink?" Isn't there a more...um...PG-rated name? :P

On to the concept itself. Overall I like it. I like the fact that you weren't afraid to use pink as a main color, so props for that. I'm not wild about the font but since "stormcloud grey" and "shocker pink" are colors you'd see in the late-70s early-80s, I think it works. The logo is a little bland. The thickness of the circle is not uniform. If it's intentional, that's fine, but I'd like to know why. Also since you choose to encompass the thundercloud with the circle you've created a negative space that doesn't serve much of a purpose. Even if it's cliche, why not add some lines to make it a basketball? (This has the retro feel, ham it up!) I think the lettering needs to be bigger on the alternate, "Tamap Bay" is difficult to read.

Not bad, just make it more gaudy. ;)
