Kobe Bryant as the New NBA Logo?

Kobe Bryant as the New NBA Logo?

Category: Basketball


.....

The current NBA logo has been used since time immemorial. It is actually a silhouette of LA Lakers great Jerry West. He was even named as “The Logo” because of this although not while he was still playing. He was “Mr. Clutch” during his playing days.

Here’s purportedly Jerry West’s image where the logo was taken from.

It has long been suggested that the logo should be changed to reflect today’s state of the NBA and its players.

Black guys dominate the NBA. John Stockton, the last player seen wearing short shorts has already retired in 2003. Today’s game is more high-flying and above the rim and relies more on individual athletic ability.

After getting his 4th NBA championship ring today and 1st Finals MVP Award with averages of 32 points, 6 rebounds and 7 assists, who better to represent the new NBA logo than Kobe Bryant?

Kobe is also a Laker. Maybe Jerry West wouldn’t mind.

    If there is anyone who can replace Jerry West as the logo, I think it should be Michael Jordan. He’s the greatest ever so it is just fitting to make his image as the logo as well.

    Hmmm, don’t you know that MJ’s image is already used by Nike for its jumpman logo? The NBA would have to buy the copyright from Nike if they want to do that.

    Now I know the story behind the NBA logo hehehe… not really an NBA fanatic and I haven’t seen Kobe played hahaha… Though I like MJ, I’ve seen him play before way back when I was still interested and played basketball. I guess he deserves to be in any logo related to basketball esp. in NBA… :) But I’m not saying kobe’s not deserving din ha…

    They both are. After all, they are the two most recognizable stars to ever don an NBA uniform.

    Sorry man, how old are you? Kobe is a popular player this generation but to even compare him to MJ is stupid. MJ won 6 titles, 6 finals mvps and 5 regular season mvps. Let Kobe try and match that before we talk about him in the same breath. Even a guy like Tim Duncan has better credentials, 4 titles, 3 finals mvps and 2 regular season mvps. Just because Kobe is a popular player in todays game doesn’t mean he deserves anything.
