There is plethora of love for the players of the game, as we see via the Dwight Howard saga for example, but seldom do we talk about the very symbol that represents each team.
Of course we are talking about the logos that have and continue to come and go from the league today.
The NBA has seen some tremendous logos go to waste, whether it's the Toronto Raptors' integration of the dinosaur or the Tetris look of the Denver Nuggets. It's always a pleasure to recognize just how unique and revitalize some of these team symbols have been to the game, and we take the time now to appreciate some of the classics.
These are the nine logos that no longer exist, including some that do and whose existence is threatened, that must be brought back to the league as soon as humanly possible.
