Ballerball continues it’s look at NBA logos and what they say about the current state of their team.
The Central Division
I love this logo. I like how it’s a big “P” then it says “Pacers”. Like, it’s not “P-acers”. This leaves the door open for what the “P” stands for. It could stand for “Please just get us to the Playoffs because the last month was rough” or “Paul George, please don’t send pics of yourself over the internet.” Either way it’s a classic logo open to any interpretation.
Look at the Bulls eyes. It stares into your soul and does NOT like what it sees. Those are the eyes of Tom Thibodeau this season. “Oh Rose is hurt again?” “You are going to trade Luol Deng for nothing?” “I still have to play Carlos Booze? GAME ON.” I mean look at those eyes- would you want to play them in a playoff series? Even if they are starting DJ Augustin- those eyes are too real.
A sword piercing the word “Cavaliers” is perfect because I’m sure Cavs fans want to stab themselves in the chest with a sword.
Classic and simple. Not much going on with this logo and the same can be true the for the Pistons on the court this season. I like how the ball kind of looks like a basket. Its the perfect place to catch Josh Smith’s 54 million dollar contract but its cool because he’s averaging 16 pts per game.
The best part of this logo is that it doesn’t even look like a live buck. It looks like the head of a buck that is hanging on the wall of an Uncle who still says stuff like “If it’s no big deal why doesn’t Obama just show us his birth certificate???” This logo is perfect because the Bucks are essentially dead on the court this year. But don’t worry Bucks fans, here is a video of The Greek Freak.
