If they made a new logo this season it would be of a ref blowing a whistle.
I am out of the loop. Why is there discussion to change the logo?
Did jerry west do something??
Yeah, he's not black so Kyrie has a probem with it.
That’s a good enough reason to inquire if I’m being honest
Makes sense with the history of this country, the barriers of entry to even be able to have the common person think a black athlete could compete with white ones. So yes having a black player as a logo when the majority of the players are black is huge.
You can’t even tell what race the logo is
Its mostly white and red, so its clearly a redneck.
Let’s not be dumb here, we know who is the logo and we know it’s not a black athlete. That is fine but I’m just explaining why this issue will continue to be brought up. Representation matters.
Great point. Black people are criminally underrepresented in the NBA. Changing the logo silhouette is the only option.
75% of league players are black. Even if it grows up to 99%, I'm sure people still would talk about that representation shit.
Representation goes higher than just having the players be black. The fact that we have discussions about the lack of black coaches, and executives has always been spoken about.
Make everyone black. Every star in US flag, make em black. Still then you guys won't be satisfied LMAO
Idk why you bother trying to have a discussion with closet racist teenagers man. You’re definitely correct.
I forget the internet is full of them or ppl too closed minded to see.
Make it a logo of The Genesis to represent everyone.
What does this even mean lol
“The NBA can neither confirm nor deny that the official NBA logo is a silhouette of Jerry West.”
Didn't pay off Uncle Dennis's friends like he promised. Got cheap after giving Dennis the jet.
No, Kyrie just thinks it should be Kobe. No issues with Jerry other than him not being Kobe
I think we might have to admit that if the logo was Bill Russell this Reddit thread might not exist right now
The logo isn't officially Jerry West. Its supposed to just be a silhouette of a basketball player. Kyrie just likes hearing himself talk.
INT. NBA HEADQUARTERS. NEW YORK, NEW YORK. LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON.
Adam Silver paces back and forth while talking on his iPhone, staring at the floor as he walks.
ADAM: Yep. I gotcha.
KYRIE: I'm just telling you, Silv --
ADAM: I know. I hear ya, buddy.
KYRIE: Jet fuel just can not melt steel beams. It just can't.
ADAM: No, I'm totally with you. I get it.
ADAM: Okay... now what's this I'm hearing about the sage?
KYRIE: The what?
ADAM: Well, multiple people are telling me that you're going into the arenas burning sage before the games.
KYRIE: Oh, yeah, so that's like. So you know how I'm Native American, right?
Adam sighs again.
KYRIE: So it cleanses the energy of the arena. I'm gonna do it before every game.
ADAM: Kyrie, remember how we talked about I'll give a little and you give a little?
KYRIE: Uh huh.
ADAM: Okay, so in this instance... I'm going to ask you to not burn any more sage. Can you do that for me, bud?
KYRIE: Alright, Silv.
ADAM: Okay. That's good. Alright...
Adam picks up stack of papers off his desk and flips to the next page. He sighs.
ADAM: Okay... next on the docket... now apparently you haven't -- wait, you haven't been in contact with your team for four days?
KYRIE: Mental health week.
ADAM: Wh– What?
KYRIE: Yeah, like, it's like a sick day but it's for your mental health.
ADAM: Yes, but Kyrie, you can't just not tell anyone where you are. An also it's a mental health day. No one takes a mental health week.
KYRIE: I did, though.
ADAM: Right, but buddy I'm gonna have to fine you now. I have to.
KYRIE: That's fine, Silv. Silv, money is just a construct anyway. You've heard of the Illuminati, right?
ADAM: No. No, we're not doing the Illuminati again. You promised me no more Illuminati.
KYRIE: So there was like this secret society, right. And they --
KYRIE: Alright, alright.
ADAM: No, we went over this. I want you to say it. Say "no more Illuminati".
KYRIE: No more Illuminati.
ADAM: Now what time are you going to be home.
ADAM: Okay, I'll see you then.
Adam hangs up
LEBRON: who was that?
ADAM: no one, babe. Now where were we?
Not cool to be making fun of people’s mental health problems like that
r/nba: What a baby
