In an interview with ESPN’s The Jump last Friday, Jerry West let the world know just how he felt being the NBA logo.
First of all, I wish that had never gotten out, that I’m the logo. No I do, really. I’ve said it more than once, and it’s flattering if that’s me, I know it is me. But it is flattering, but to me […] if I was the league I’d be embarrassed about it. I don’t like to do anything to call attention to myself, and when people say that, that’s just not who I am, period. And if they would want to change it, I wish they would. In many ways, I wish they would.
Only a few minutes after that interview went live, the internet went into a frenzy, creating a ton of new NBA logos that the league can consider if they did want to move on from Jerry West. Here are some of the best.
LeBron James (Again)
Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard
