Ehh, I've always hated that script logo. That should have been retired a long time ago.

My favorite has always been this one:

I can't think of any reason as to why they dumped it - if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

The Finals script is something retro with a touch of modern isn't

This one is very "broke" thats why they fixed it. Theres a lot wrong with it, especially the boring font and awkward yellow text mixed with a white drop shadow? At least the script is unique. The old one looks like it belongs in the 90s

Well you're entitled to that opinion, but the reason I hate the current is because it looks like a motion picture awards show logo. It's better suited for something of that nature - the late 90's-early 2000's logo looked like a legitimate sports championship logo. That's the key difference to me, and why I personally think the previous logo beats the current out of the water.

I mean, "elegant" cursive script just doesn't fit as a sports championship logo. It works for an invitation to the White House or the Academy Awards, but not on banners, playing surfaces, and memorabilia at a sports arena.

I disagree, I like the current script. It looks very classy. That old one looks like it's from a video game. An old video game.

Besides, with all of the drama that is the NBA, it makes sense to have a motion picture awards show-type appearance.

The "Finals" script is one of the classiest most timeless special-event marks in all of sports. Seeing it on the court automatically tells you that what you're watching is a big deal (for reasons other than the obvious that it literally reads "Finals.")

This goes back to the '80s, yes? You'd never know it.

This logo reminds me of the Fakers dynasty sadly.

2001 Primary Mark:

Makes sense they would put the NBA Finals logo there. The playoffs and conference finals logos are there. Putting the Finals logo inside the 3-point arc only made sense when they had the giant trophy at mid-court. With that gone, might as well have the Finals script near mid-court.

Unrelated question: Why does the NHL insist on "Stanley Cup Final" instead of "Finals"? By their rational, shouldn't they also call it the "Eastern (or Western) Conference Final"?

Maybe to be different?

I was reading a couple years back that the NBA as trademarked the term "The Finals," and as a result the NHL is forced to use the term Stanley Cup Final. Still sounds weird to me as well. Here's a copy of the trademark.
