"76" that new logo...

The 76ers have done something that is truly awesome. Hopefully it starts a trend. They're going back to their old logo. Classic.

The following teams should follow Phila's lead. All images, except the two I photoshopped, are courtesy of the most excellent

The Hawks old logo and uni's especially are really cool and unique. The new stuff is like that, except the opposite.

The Warriors multicolor Silver Surfer logo would be totally kick ass if it was for a Saturday morning cartoon. I'm 28 and I would watch the heck out of that. But it's goofy for an NBA team. Go back to the San Francisco logo. It doesn't matter that your location is a state nickname and your logo will say "The City". We have a black President now. It'll be okay.

Hey Bucks, revert back to your old logo right now. I don't care if the Buck is gay. Which he is. It's awesome.

Switch back Spurs! Hidden Agenda Alert: The old logo isn't better. It pretty much defines "terrible". Y'all are Mexican, we got it. I just want ammo against dirty Spurs fans...

Don't be such a dick, Jazz. Give New Orleans its name/logo back. New Orleans Jazz is one of the best regional team names ever. Ticket and merchandise sales would skyrocket in the Big Easy. Plus, since when are Mormons allowed to steal? NOLA could even create a secondary logo of a dead hornet for the first year...

"It's Phil, leave a message. You know what don't change your name to the Wizards. It's gay." Couldn't have said it better myself, man crush. Seriously, Washington...take a bullet and shoot the Wizards logo in the head.

Notable Omissions

The Nuggets rainbow logo is iconic, but it should be used in doses. Kinda like J├Ąger. I think if Nugg Nation had to look at that thing all season long they'd end up naked and hurling. Keep the current logo, which is actually really good, and have a minimum of 7 throwback games.

I know this is local blasphemy to some, but I like the Mavs new logo better (minus the unnecessary shield/crest deal). It's the color scheme that seals it me. That being said, I'd be completely down with playing half our road games in the greens. The throwbacks, not the new ones. Sorry, Diddy.

The Zombie Sonics (tip of my BS cap) left the logo and team history in Seattle, so their case doesn't technically apply here. But that logo still sucks. It was clearly created before they decided on "Thunder".

I just made some allegedly strapped millionaire owners a bunch of $$$. Please make your checks out to "theyremammals".

Pretty sure I've decided that the retro Nugs logo is heretofore going to be called "Gay Giants Playing Tetris".
