  1. At right price, please advertise on uniforms

    Henry Abbott

    Melissa Majchrzak/NBAE/Getty Images If the NBA can survive paid logo placement on referees, what's the worry about players? Mark Cuban is making noises about all the money the NBA could make selling advertising space on jerseys. And he's not just t...

    Henry Abbott

    It's a tough gig. Here's the Logo, as quoted by Jonathan Abrams on Grantland: "All your life when you're growing up in a household like I grew up in and having a different type of personality - I'm basically a soft person - you're always trying to f...

  3. First Cup: Thursday

    Henry Abbott

    Kevin Ding of The Orange County Register: "Just know that if the NBA door closes this season, Kobe Bryant has always been the type to seek another door that opens. One of his personal logos has long featured the motto 'Carpe Diem.' That's Latin, not ...

    Henry Abbott

    Since buying the team, Ted Leonsis has talked openly about redesigning the Wizards logo, and returning to the old red, white and blue color scheme of the Bullets days. A new version of the logo may or may not have recently leaked. Meanwhile, th...

  5. Lessons of Wearing Logos

    Henry Abbott

    Yesterday I wrote about wearing the logos of this or that team. I learned a lot from the comments. For instance, DirtyFrank wrote: The only sports related piece of clothing that means the world to me is the Lisa Leslie Sparks jersey I bought at Ocea...

  6. Wearing Logos

    Henry Abbott

    I'm wearing a Yankees shirt. The Yankees are OK, to me. I enjoyed going to Yankee stadium when I was in college. For eight bucks you could sit in the outfield, with all that green grass, in the sun. When you're poor and living in Manhattan, e...

  7. Logo Doctor Hates Oklahoma City Logo

    Henry Abbott

    Very interesting breakdown of the new logo (PG-13 for one word) which never really bothered me before but now suddenly seems horribly amateurish. For instance, why must it say Thunder OKC, instead of OKC Thunder? Why four colors? Is that a clip-art b...

  8. The Worst Kept Secret Ever

    Henry Abbott

    Shortly, in Oklahoma City, there will be a news conference to announce the name and logo of the former Seattle SuperSonics. The only problem is that there have already been countless leaks of these very same things. The latest one is really one of th...

  9. Clay Bennett Might Leave the "Sonics" Name Behind

    Henry Abbott

    Percy Allen of the Seattle Times writes: Sonics chairman Clay Bennett is so eager to sever ties with Seattle that he's willing to leave the team's name, logo, colors and history behind to avoid a messy divorce. During a breakfast meeting for team sp...

  10. One Thing that New Sonics Website Doesn't Have

    Henry Abbott

    Is the word "Seattle." Take a look. As TrueHoop reader Eric pointed out, that word is just not in any prominent places. The logo they use is a stripped down version that also omits the name of the city. And unlike a lot of team sites, this one sure d...

  11. First Cup: Monday

    Henry Abbott

    John DeShazier of The Times-Picayune: The image branded onto the 2008 All-Star Game won't be the league-approved logo, a New Orleans-themed creation with the omnipresent Jerry West silhouette at the top. It will be of Dwight Howard's 'Superman' slam,...

    As TrueHoop reader Evan points out, LeBron James looks a lot like the NBA logo here, doesn't he? (AP Photo/Tony Dejak) UPDATE: Variation on the theme. UPDATE: A quick version of what the new logo might look like, by TrueHoop reader Trey: ...

  13. Thursday Bullets

    Henry Abbott

    Is Del Harris done on the bench in Dallas? If so, that's big. At the beginning of this past regular season, I got an email from a Blazer fan who had just gotten a tattoo of the Blazer logo on his chest. He wanted to make clear he was with the team i...

  14. Thursday Bullets

    Henry Abbott

    You can see this two ways. Either it's honoring Red Auerbach's memory by adjusting the Celtic logo to reflect Red in a couple of key ways (gets Red hair and a stogey, instead of black hair and a pipe). Or it's doing I-don't-know-what to Red Auerbach'...

  15. Something Really Weird is Happening to Me

    Henry Abbott

    The only team in all of sports that I REALLY care about is the Portland Trail Blazers. It has been so my entire life. I don't just bleed red--anyone can do that--I bleed the exact red of the Blazer logo. Having only one team in the inner circle is...

    Kevin from ClipperBlog: "Power rankings are for mental midgets. More often than not, they're composed by wankers who are too lazy to discuss basketball and its nuances and would rather play computer solitaire with a bunch of team logos. Kelly ...
