5 Most Iconic NBA Teams' Logos that Can be Styled with Any Fit
The National Basketball Association offers more than just the most exciting highlight-reel plays on any court across the globe. The league has transformed into a cultural institution that produces some of the most-recognizable stars and community role models.
The NBA has made incredible strides to grow the game and connect with communities that their franchises call home. At GLD, we share the NBA’s values of consistently creating a quality product and giving love back to those that support what we do.
As a force in the jewelry space, we also always appreciate dope designs and NBA teams’ logos always resonate with us. If you are looking to add some NBA merch to your everyday fit, here are some logos that can upgrade your style in any city.
1: Los Angeles Lakers
From their early beginnings in Minneapolis to the current era with LeBron James leading the squad, the most legendary names in basketball have worn the purple and gold. Jerry West, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Shaq, Kobe - you could list the names of icons that have played for the franchise and still forget at least one or two.
Few teams could rival the Los Angeles Lakers in terms of their broad appeal to fans everywhere. They have given each generation superstars to look up to and cheer for through the decades and their logo remains one of the most popular icons in all professional sports.
2: Chicago Bulls
The Chicago Bulls are another team many recognize without even knowing a single player on the current roster. Obviously, this is the team that Jordan built his legacy on, and the team’s championships in the 90s with other icons of the game like Scotty Pippen and Dennis Rodman have firmly cemented the franchise as one of the most recognizable across the United States and the rest of the world.
Like the Lakers, the Bulls logo holds more meaning than just being a fan of the current team. It also represents a legacy built by some of the best to have ever stepped foot on an NBA court.
3: Golden State Warriors
Returning to another of the four California-based franchises, the Golden State Warriors are the most recent team to dominate an entire generation of professional basketball. Through their hard work, careful roster construction, and drive to win, they have earned recent championship titles in 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2022.
Led by icon Steph Curry, the Warriors have built a new legacy for young fans to remember as they grow up falling in love with the game. Like the Bulls and Lakers, you can easily add the Golden State Warriors logo to any fit and have it look fresh.
4: New York Knicks
Despite not having won a championship since the 1970s, the New York Knicks remain relevant among NBA fans. They play their home games on the largest stage in all of basketball at Madison Square Garden. For many aspiring and current players, stepping onto that court is equivalent to a professional baseball player’s first game at Yankee Stadium.
In New York, the show is simply bigger. The Knicks represent the biggest show on the biggest stage in the biggest city.
5: Toronto Raptors
As Canada’s sole NBA franchise, the Toronto Raptors play each game with an entire nation behind them. When they won their first-ever championship in 2019, the 6ix wasn’t the only city celebrating. It was a win for them and 38 million Canadians nationwide.
The Raptors Logo holds relevance and reverence in any Canadian city, but they also excite plenty of fans in the U.S. You can rock a Raptors logo in any city with style as sharp as a velociraptor claw.
