Avry's Logo Blog: Logo #3 Houston Rockets (Alternate logo 1990s to 2003)

Avry Lewis-McDougallContributor IJune 21, 2009

Well I’m back and ready to bring you the 3rdlogo blog and this time I’m blogging about a blog

that maybe should be in a horror movie or a Pokémon film. The alternate logo of the Houston Rockets during the mid 90’s to 2003 was one of the worst choices ever for a logo. I understand that the team is called the Houston Rockets so they wanted a rocket logo but does it have to have a creepy face with razor sharp teeth?! A rocket with teeth, I wonder whose idea that was? This logo made the Rockets logo made them look like they should have been playing in a pee wee basketball league and not the NBA. Intimate objects should never be given teeth or a face, unless you want to make your team look juvenile. The Rockets should have stuck with the classic red and yellow ball but the new logo came during a time in which the NBA wanted to do something “fresh and new” with the team logos, I guess they didn’t take into account if the logos looked tacky and should be for a elementary school team. I’m glad that the Rockets changed their logo again and went back with red as the main color because a rocket that has teeth and is glaring at people has no place on a professional sports team’s jersey but should be in a movie with Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander.
