I’ve gone through my logo rankings for the NFL and MLB, so now it’s time for the NBA! If you want to see which logos I picked as the best for those leagues, I’ve provided this handy reference page.

The team followed that up by making it to the Western Conference semifinals, where they lost in six games to the Seattle SuperSonics.
