Sonics logo when they return
Wed Jan 09, 2013 12:07 pm
  • 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.

    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?

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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

    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...)
