"New" American Basketball Association

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen much on the "new" ABA here at sportslogos. In fact, I never heard of the league until I came across a George Gervin "retro" ABA All-Star jersey at a thrift store. There are plenty of teams in the league, but most of their logos are pretty bad. The league site is ....http://abalive.com/ Logos can be seen by clicking on the conferences tab.

Some of the better logos...

And the horrible.....

And plenty of expansion clubs on the horizon, including Ball World Peace...

Perhaps they'll incorporate Meta World Peace into their logo in the future.

Here is that Gervin jersey I came across. I'm not sure if they have rights to using old ABA team logos, but they apparently are able to market former ABA stars ....

For reference:

Oh, this is a fun mash up of the Orlando Magic and what appears to be a Golden State wordmark, or at least it's heavily inspired by Golden State

Also see North Carolina A&T's Bulldog logo, Florida Gator logo recolored and North Texas logo recolored. What a joke lol.

I haven't looked at any ABA stuff (teams, logos, operations) in a few years, and after browsing a few minutes I'm reminded why.

Websites that don't work. Websites that look like they are from 1995. Websites with no info... ummm, it's nice that you have ticket prices posted, but where do you play? It's one virtual how-not-too after another.

The current incarnation of the ABA is the textbook definition of the term "fly by night".

I was going to go for "Glorified Inter-state wire fraud scam" myself.

How can these teams use NBA teams' nicknames without the NBA taking some action?

And, by the way: note that the illiterates who did the logo for the "Indiana State Warriors" included an apostrophe.

Maybe the 2nd part of your post answers the first. Warrior's is not Warriors. Not sure if that would hold up in court.

Well, "CFL Colts" is not "Colts"; but the NFL got an injunction on that. Of course, it's anyone's guess as to whether it could have prevailed in a suit.

I realise that this farcical ABA is in no way a threat to the NBA. But, doesn't the inaction by the NBA clubs on this question undercut their future ability to prevent other basketball clubs from using these nicknames in the future?
