Just a few notes...

- Merchandise will go on sale January 18th with the new Hornets logo in it.

- Fred Whitfield said that the original logo is part of the NBA's legacy and they are not allowed to reuse it as their logo for this team (which is why they decided to go with something a little different), but they will use the original logo for throwback jersey's.

- Jordan Brand and Nike collaborated to design the logo. We are the only team that has a logo designed by Nike.

- The team will still sell merchandise will the original hornets logo.

- Much like the logo, Hugo will also undergo a new look.

- The jersey's will be unveiled sometime over the summer.

I would have liked to see them stick a little bit closer to the originals... if it ain't broke, don't fix it. There's a reason that the original logo is one of the best-selling logos in sports.

That being said, if I had never seen the originals of be pretty happy with these overall. I only have one problem with them, and that is the "assketball". It is so cheesy and terribly forced, and it absolutely ruins the side-profile logo. Plus, the combination of the bulge and the stance of the new Hugo logo make him look constipated. Keep pushing, Hugo. You'll pass it soon enough.

note: I'm notoriously critical of logos. I'm a designer and a logophile... so take my opinion, add about a hundred happy points, and you'll probably get the average person who isn't an absolute tool about logos.

You must hate the Carolina Hurricanes logo, even those that aren't hockey fans say it looks like a toilet is being flushed.

Saw the designs earlier but just got around to watching the presentation. I had goosebumps all over. TWCA sounded really, really loud.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
