Ohhh boy audience, this is about to me a hot one.
A bunch of NBA fans signed a petition to change the NBA logo to a silhouette of Kobe instead of the classic Jerry West. By “a bunch” I mean 2.4 million fans. 2.4 million passionate people want to honor the late star by making him the logo.
I understand it from a legend stand point and I think it makes sense to re-brand, but I get that it can be difficult to change something that has represented the league for so many years. That has to be the issue, right? It’s just too hard ??
NOT ACCORDING TO NBC SPORTS. NBC sports reported that the NBA won’t change their logo because, “They don’t want the logo to represent one man.”
SIR! You do realize that the logo is JERRY WEST. WE PUT IT THROUGH THE BOTA STAT CHECK MACHINE AND IT TURNS OUT HE WAS ONE MAN.
I support the change, I think it’s a cool way to honor Kobe, a man who touched so many lives and at the same time, update a 50 year old logo. Don’t try telling me that hypocritical Bull Shit when there is clearly some other agenda. That seems like an awful excuse to not honor a legend.
