The current logo has been used for more than fifty years and is based on the silhouette of Jerry West
After the unfortunate death of basketball player Kobe Bryant, fans decided to create a petition so that the silhouette of Kobe Bryant become the new NBA logo. Several design options were made, encouraging even more the adhesion to the petition, which already exceeds the mark of 2 million signatures.
“My goal was to reach 100 signatures, ” said Nikyar Moghtader, the Canadian teenager responsible for the petition. ” I didn’t expect this to become something big, ” he added. After the idea became popular, even NBA players expressed their support for the new NBA visual identity. Phoenix Suns ‘Jamal Crawford was the first to support, and Cleveland Cavaliers’ Larry Nance Jr endorsed him.
The current logo has been used for more than fifty years and is based on the silhouette of Jerry West, a player who, like Kobe, is a legend in the history of the Los Angeles Lakers. The NBA has not yet commented on the petition, but if other athletes and important people from the basketball world continue to express support, it may be that the league will yield and pay homage to an important icon of the sport.
Kobe was one of nine victims of a helicopter crash in the Calabasas region of Los Angeles. In addition to him, his daughter Gianna, 13, was also on the flight.
