The NBA Logo Project


Recently I had the privilege to be a guest writer at Both Teams Played Hard to contribute to the “NBA Logo Ranking Project.”  Though it wasn’t Spurs related, it’s still just good old fashion fun. 

I wrote on the current Orlando Magic logo, gave my two cents and offered a suggestion to the Orlando front office on a redesign.  Thanks to Jared at Both Teams Played Hard for the opportunity to contribute to his site.  Enjoy.

 Add one part basketball, one part glitter, one part male ejaculate and you’ve got the Orlando Magic logo. It looks like sperm. Seriously.

While we are at it, is there anything “magical” about it? I understand that the logo is supposed to be related to the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in Florida but, I repeat, where is the “magic” or any obvious link to Disney World? Are we to assume that the magic is in the stars trailing the basketball? Since when do stars equal magic? If you look at Orlando’s original logo, the organization kept the stars. And when they “changed” it, where was the change? It stayed basically the same except that the word Orlando is now atop the word Magic.
