The boxy logo features OKC across a shield-like, abstract basketball and swaths of orange and blue.
It might be the best D-League logo ever made, Tom OGrady, told Grantland. He was the associations first creative director and now works for Chicago-based Gameplan Creative.
The logo was blasted for its vagueness, neither embracing the imagery of its mascot bison nor lightning or storms.
We didnt feel like having professional players represented by [an] animal was where we wanted to be, Brian Byrnes, the Thunders senior VP of sales and marketing, told the blog.
That wont stop Nike from mounting a full-court press to revamp its look once it replaces Adidas as the leagues apparel partner in 2017.
The Chicago Bulls earned the No. 1 slot. Grantland said the logo is perfect, right down to the red on the tips of the horns, which suggests that this mean motherfucker just gored some poor sap.
Perhaps OKCs logo could feature a slain bull.
