Atlanta Hawks changes for 2014-15

Recommended Posts

I almost :censored: a load this morning when I saw they had changed their avatar. What a welcomed change. They said the primary logo is still in tact, but honestly the entire team needs a rebrand. This is a hell of a start.

I like the full body Hawk holding the ball as a primary. I just think their colors are too generic and over-used. Going back to red and yellow would work IMO.

The 'Pacman' logo is awesome though. Brings back memories of when I first started watching basketball and honestly my first thought was 'Pac-man'.

This seems like another "the NBA charges a lot to change the primary, so we're going to recolor it, and add some new secondary logos and basically not even use the primary anymore" type of rebrand. Same thing that the Wiz and Cavs did.

Don't forget the Jazz. They might be the worst example of this.

Just give that logo a yellow outline and it'd be perfect. Going back to red and yellow (without black) would be great, especially if they go the fauxback route (which this logo certainly indicates).

The Pac Man logo is a classic, but I really like this logo and it doesn't get the praise it deserves.

The red part forms an A and the eye makes an a. That's brilliant! Hopefully the updated pac man doesn't mean this is going away, but what's the point of two different hawk head logos?

I think you hit the nail on the head. That secondary is gone.

I have a feeling they'll be replacing the 'Aa' Hawks logo (as I like to call it in text) to the modern Pac-logo. I've always thought the other one was a clever design, but a little too elongated, plus I often wear my hat with that logo on it in public and get asked, "What team is that?" ... IN ATLANTA. Because it's a secondary and the regular flying Hawk is still the primary, a lot of people who don't pay attention still don't recognize the logo unveiled in 2007. This one is more iconic...I'm hoping this means, at the least, a uniform redesign. I'd cry if they went back to the old colors, but I doubt it.

How sweet will the retro ATL alternate be in 2 years? Hope they go back to Red, White, and Yellow so the new ATL would be yellow

If they're going to go back to pacman they need to go all the way. Dark red and yellow, random swooshes of color, tilted numbers

It doesn't have to be a direct throwback, but if it's a modern update inspired by these they'd instantly be my favorite uniforms in the NBA. navy blue and red have never felt right for the Hawks.

A modified version of this would make me quite happy.

Agree with the above posters. Red/Yellow with no black. It's a great combo. If the Flames won't do it, the Hawks should.

I don't feel as strongly about looking too much like the above photos, but if it will get the color scheme back, I'll take it!

So are we to assume that this is a hint at a color change?

I suspect it's not. I think it's just a minimalist alt logo that will go along with the current scheme. But that's just my gut...I know nuthin.

Love the giant pacman logo on the shorts.

I was also a fan of the uniforms that succeeded these, however they didn't have quite as much character.

Anything after that was just crap.

eh, I'm not a big fan of that. The font style looks like it is WordArt from PowerPoint.

I'm optimistic about the color scheme change. Something leads me to believe that if they were going to keep the current colors, there would be a blue outline around the pac logo.
