With the NBA’s new season set to officially begin on Monday, a handful of teams are looking to make a few changes to their logos which include the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics.
Both the Warriors and Celtics new logos will be of the ‘secondary’ nature and while nobody knows of their inclusions yet, they appear most likely to be introduced as potential patches on team jerseys given their round shape. Neither the Celtics nor Warriors have confirmed that to be the case, however.
SportsLogos.net seems to feel that the Celtics new logo will possibly replace the shamrock patch which the Celtics have worn for a few seasons now. The Boston Celtics also introduced a ‘partial’ logo as well which is silhouette version of their new secondary logo, though there’s no information on how the Celtics plan to use it.
As for the Golden State Warriors, they’ve added a new look ‘W’ to their arsenal and removed the silhouette shape of California as they prepare for a move to San Francisco. They obviously no longer need a shape of the state considering they won’t likely be called the ‘Golden State’ Warriors in a few seasons.
In addition to the Celtics and Warriors, the Sacramento Kings have re-introduced a former script which is currently used on their black uniform.
The Philadelphia 76ers are also said to be in the market for a new secondary logo and a dribbling Ben Franklin was leaked to the internet, however the Sixers will reportedly not use the logo despite it being something the team explored.
