Evolution of NBA logos

Recommended Posts

I've stumbled upon an article highlighting the evolution of every logo in the NBA. I'm well-aware that we have access to a database full of logos (hell, the logos within the article are sourced from the Mothership), but I thought the written piece was interesting, and I thought it was neat seeing all the logos presented seamlessly all in one place. What are some of your favorites? I've always liked the 1981-93 Denver logo. I think it's definitely unique and I like it aesthetically as well. I don't think I'd ever noticed that 1962 Golden State logo before. It definitely reminds me of the logo of South African soccer team Kaizer Chiefs FC. Staying on Golden State, I think that their current logo is a thing of beauty, a fantastic update to the iconic "The City" mark.

Can someone remind me why this isn't Philly's primary logo?

Apparently there's a rule stating all primary NBA logos have to contain the teams' nickname and locale, hence the awkward border around the current version.

According to some, there's a rule (or at least a strong suggestion) that new primary logos need to include the city name as well as the team name, so teams make primaries to comply, while their secondary becomes the de facto primary.

The more I look at that logo, the more I realize how bad that 7 is. It's weird looking, and it being a different color than "6ers" makes it stand out (not in a good way) even more. It looks like two ribbons. See below, Chun-Li's hair things. As I'm typing this response, I also see how drastically different the fonts are; a sharp 7, and a rounded 6ers. Sticks out like a sore thumb, now more than ever that I analyze it.
