If the great Jerry West's NBA Logo had to be replaced by a current (Not Magic, Not Jordan, Not Bird) NBA player, who would be the appropriate fit for that logo spot, and what would be the pose for that logo?


Simple question.

I would say shaq, but that'd be a big *** silhouette.

I think they would give to a player with a good image, so no kobe, lebron, etc

if the nba wanted to go after a role model player for many years to come, i think its pretty hard to argue against Kevin Durant

Probably Arenas waiving a gun in his team-mates face or LeBron quitting versus the Celtics.

Another option is Delonte West doing a 69 with Gloria James.

Fits given the sad state of affairs.

that cant be the logo then women would be in the nba too lol

I like the Steve Nash idea, but for some reason I think having a foreigner as the NBA logo is just .... not right.

I think Kobe has redeemed himself from the negative stigma he carried after the rape allegation. Most of the hate he gets from people these days is simply just that... "hate/jealousy"...since he's the modern day jordan. Its been years now, and he carries himself a lot better now, kinda like a big brother. I'd say Kobe.

Lebron has been in the league for only 6-7 years? No way you make him the league logo that early... its gotta be a guy on his way out, with at least a full decade of dominance under his belt and a decade with the same team. It says a lot.

Tim Duncan would be the perfect fit.

12-20-2010, 02:41 AM
I know you don't want any past players, but that's just being silly. If the NBA was to change their logo, there's >50% chance it would be of Jordan. For contractual reasons it wouldn't be Jumpman, but it would be something like this: http://live.drjays.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/michael_jordan_drunk.jpg
or this: http://thisisjester.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/michael_jordan_87.jpg

Other top options:

Bird's jumper: http://www.totalfoot3.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/larry-bird-action11.jpg

Kareem's sky hook: http://www.lakersuniverse.com/pictures/kareem_abdul_jabbar.jpg

But to answer the OP's question about a current player, I think it would have to be a prior MVP winner with a solid widespread appeal: That Nash photo that was posted on page 1 seems like a pretty great image, although in all honesty I think Stern would be hesitant not to have the new image be of a black players silhouette (to both respect their impact on the game, and to not have to deal with the inevitable backlash of people crying racism). That leaves us with Shaq, Kobe, Tim Duncan and Garnett.

Doubt they'd choose KG, but ANYTHING IS POSSIBLEEEE!!!!! http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_d-nXiaazaN0/SedCd2jODbI/AAAAAAAAANg/VJTtIAUUbLE/s400/pg2_a_garnett_3001.jpg

Yes, saying that the NBA logo should be Jordan's jumpman deserves a severe facepalm. Is that difficult to understand?

I'd say Chris Paul or Grant Hill. Both are known to be upstanding individuals who do great things for their community. Hill has shown that he loves the game when he fought to come back after his knee injuries even though he wldve gotten paid anyways.

I dont know about Paul, he hasn't been in the league long enough. And he is one of the winers on the court, he is always having a cry about something.

Hill is a very good choice though. Cant say a bad word about him.

Jerry West will be the logo for at least another couple of decades. The NBA won't change it until years after his death, and years after David Stern is no longer the commissioner, if ever.

even tho you left him out, theres only 1 choice.....and he comes with his own silhouette already. There's only one person in the history that can replace West as the logo and we all know who it is.

There is no one worthy in basketball today to have them as the logo.

As much as i hated the man as a Knicks fan there is only one worthy enough to take us into the next 100 years of NBA basketball as the Logo.
