The Best and Worst NBA Logos (Northwest Division)

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. Otherwise, let’s do some roundball logo reviews. I’m going to take this at an easier pace than I did with football and baseball, so this will be running throughout the NBA 2012-13 regular season. Up next are the five teams of the Western Conference’s Northwest Division — the Denver Nuggets, Minnesota Timberwolves, Oklahoma City Thunder, Portland Trail Blazers, and Utah Jazz.  As always, most of these are sourced from Chris Creamer’s outstanding logo website. Denver Nuggets Best What's this, you ask? Well, before the Denver Nuggets came to the NBA from the old American Basketball Associ

Seattle, Welcome Back Your NBA Basketball Team With a New Logo!

If today's reports are to be believed, the NBA's Sacramento Kings -- currently sitting pretty at the top of the list of franchises who have gone the longest without a title -- are leaving the California capital and moving north to Seattle. That city is, of course, the former home of the SuperSonics, who now play in Oklahoma City as the Thunder, and have a crappy logo. And while Emerald City residents are already salivating at the return of their beloved Sonics, I'd like to humbly suggest a new brand altogether. After all, the most recent major sports team to depart a town and return several years later with the same name was the Cleveland Browns. And we all know how that's been going for them. But if not the Sonics, then what? Well they could stay with the Kings. Seattle is, after al

Brick! — The 10 Longest Active Title Droughts in NBA History

Winning an NBA title is hard. Really hard. But some franchises have taken futility to a whole new level. I speak, of course, about the longest streak of consecutive seasons without winning an NBA championship. Let's take a look at the ten longest active streaks as of the start of the 2012-13 regular season. #10 -- Portland Trail Blazers (35 seasons) The Blazers enjoyed their one and only NBA crown in the 1976-77 season, the year new head coach Jack Ramsay and Hall of Fame center Bill Walton led the team to its first winning campaign and first playoff appearance. The team followed that up by making it to the Western Conference semifinals, where they lost in six games to the Seattle SuperSonics. From that magical season all the way through 2002-03, Portland missed the playoffs...

These results will undoubtedly change soon, but here's all you need to know today about LeBron James and Dirk Nowitzki, less than 24 hours after the Dallas Mavericks humbled the Miami Heat in the 2011 NBA Finals. Thanks Google autocomplete! LeBron James is... Dirk Nowitzki is... Hmm, so apparently they're both gay, ugly, and overrated. I'm just not sure who I should hate more -- the Nazi or the one in the Illuminati.

Proving that it's never too late to right a hideous wrong, the NBA's Washington Wizards recently unveiled their new look for next season. Which is much like their old look. Witness: Current Wizards getup (the suck): Pretty awful, no? The color scheme is decent but that wacky typeface belongs on the packaging for some kids' drink, and that logo is simply too lame for words. New Wizards getup (much better): If those seem familiar to long-time basketball fans, there's a good reason. The new logo set is basically a lift of the old Washington Bullets look: Too bad they didn't go all the way and don those super groovy '70s uniforms, complete with form-fitting patriotic ball shorts: In any case, it's still an upgrade in just about every way possible. Now if only they...
