With the sudden buzz that the Sonics are coming back to town, it made me wonder whether we should have a slightly different, newer logo, or keep the one identical to the team we lost. Sports teams redo their logos from time to time, so it would not be any big surprise.

There are pros and cons to this, as I see it. With a new logo, we have a new, fresh face to the team, something to usher in a new era of Seattle basketball. With the old, we retain the face of the franchise we lost.

So what say you folks?

I'm down with either, but if we go old, we gotta go back to the city skyline or even farther back to the original, because that one looks awesome.

Not a huge one, but a small one kind of like the Seahawks did. To show this is the new era of Sonics

I'm with going back to the skyline logo if we go old. I hate the red in the newer logo; green, yellow and red just doesn't work well. If it was between going back to the latest logo or making a new one, I'd vote for a new one and hope it turns out better.

Bring back the skyline logo. Never should've changed it in the first place. Iconic as hell. Have you noticed it's the main logo being used in all the retro Supes gear being sold and worn around town?

Bad mojo to keep the logo's you had when your team got Starbuck'd.

Heck I would like them to go back to the Seattle Supersonics!

I think they should use this logo, call them the SonicHawks and start calling the fans the 6th Man.

I would love to have the old skyline logo but the last logo we had was a newer more modern type with a retro feel which I really liked

I think we should go back to the original year one logo, so far removed from Bennett that he cannot cash in on it with some damn promotion. I also hope we can get our history from the first year back of his ownership to the 1st year of the franchise. He can have everythijng from his day on since it was never the Seattle Supersonics anyway but a camoflaged Thunder team.

Beat me to it, Jazz! That's pretty funny. And it looks like folks are split pretty evenly about it.

Me, I think a new logo is definitely a good thing. It's a slight nod to the Kings, in that we're not just reverting back to exactly the way it was before and pretending they didn't come from Sacramento. It's also a fresh start, a new beginning, a point of moving forward with the franchise. And it would also be a reminder of the debacle that took them away from us for a time, something no Seattle sports fan should ever forget. Not too much of a change, just a bit. I'm thinking more the change between the Holmgren-era Seahawks logo to the current logo, not as drastic as from the original to the Holmgren-era.

My favorite logo/uni combo was the one's they had before the last ones minus the alternate burgundy ones. Though I'm cool with the last ones.

Maybe tweak the skyline one a bit, to look more modern and change up the font to something modern too, at least that's what id like to see.

The Kings actually did call their fans the 6th man. They retired the number 6 jersey because of that.

Either

I just want a team. Worry about what to call it later. The Goof family is so freaking greedy. I wish we could find a different option for a team so the Goofs are stuck and screwed. I'll start celebrating when deal is complete and confirmed by somebody legit.

Combination of both, you absolutely have to have the skyline, but made the green and gold look a litlte more modern.

I always liked the Jet in the skyline for which they were actually named anyway. Seen some mock ups of it in the background behind the city a long time ago. It was far right with a line as a vapor trail.

That's a pretty cool logo, Maelstrom. And for you guys who want to bring an old logo back to life, wouldn't it be better not to completely annihilate your chances at wearing them as throwbacks? I'm pretty surprised at the amount of people who want to retread an old logo instead of having a new one.

Yeah a little bit of the old mixed in with a new beginning is a great idea.

I'd like to see their old green/yellow color scheme though. I hope it's a really smooth looking design, but with some aspects of the old one

Which logo do you mean? The skyline, or the last logo they had while playing here?

This was the last logo they had:

Personally, I would be ok with either, but the Skyline is my fave. I love the alteration of putting it in a whole circle that someone already posted.

Skyline is awesome, it's my fave for sure. The original one Throwdown posted is pretty sick though. Maybe synthesize the two or update the original a bit with some color.

Honestly I'd prefer a retro look to a new shiny feel. And man Green and yellow is the best color scheme. (Except on the stupid Ducks...)

We cannot go back to the last one, it represents the clown that put us in this situation in the first place, Howard Shultz.
