If this is real there is almost certainly a color version that probably looks better. I actually kind of like it...
They should have invoked the Brooklyn Bridge into it.
all black errrything!
Definitely should have worked the bridge into it somehow.

Golden State's already got dibs on bridge imagery, or "bridgery", as we call it in the business.
That's too bad. That's not even WNBA bad, that's worse than D-League bad, that's worse than Oklahoma City Thunder bad... well I won't go that far.

#Hellobrooklyn looks like crap
That looks like a 4 year old playing with Photoshop. Terrible.

As a former ABA team, wish they'd keep their colors as homage to their ancestry.
I know it seems counter-intuitive to you non-business types out there, but too much bridgery can really bog down a professional sports league, especially when we're propping up second-tier bridges that just don't inspire loyalty in their fan base. I've read a lot of studies about this, and from a purely economic perspective, the Brooklyn Bridge consistently ranks behind the Golden Gate Bridge, the George Washington Bridge, and even the Mackinac Bridge in Michigan. Those three are the only bridges in America - with the possible exception of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge - that have the brand recognition necessary to support an NBA team. You'd be crazy to think otherwise.
I'll give a lesson to those who might be implied to take your post seriously....
The Warriors logo isn't the Golden Gate Bridge, it's the Bay Bridge. The Golden Gate Bridge goes from SF to Marin County, CA. The Warriors logo is the Bay Bridge, which links SF and Oakland (where the Warriors play).
The Golden Gate and Brookly Bridge are without a doubt the most famous bridges in the country. I would think a Bridge expert like you would at least understand that, even though you apparently didn't realize that the Warriors logo was not the Golden Gate.
George Washington? Come on, it's a big bridge but it is no way as famous as the Brooklyn which is older and is far more photographed. The George Washington is way up in northern Manhattan, a good distance away from the skyscrapers. The Brooklyn OTOH goes right into the heart of Lower Manhattan and it's one of the most photographed areas in the country.
Mackinac Bridge? LOL, that's an insult to the true historic bridges of this country.
Anyone who vaults your lame bridges (with the exception of Golden Gate) above a beautiful historic one that goes right into the heart of Wall Street is the crazy one.
First off, I never once said the Warriors' logo represented the Golden Gate Bridge. I simply stated that the Golden Gate Bridge was one of the few left in America that could support a franchise on its own merits.
Secondly, I also never claimed to be a bridge expert. I'm a bridge and tunnel enthusiast, sure, but I'm a Bridgery Interpretation Specialist by trade.
Allow me to crack an egg of knowledge all over you. There is already a professional sports team that incorporates the Brooklyn Bridge into their logo - the New York Metropolitans. Complex analyses of the Mets' utilization of bridgery has proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the Brooklyn Bridge just doesn't inspire confidence in the Tri-State Area fan base that other bridges would. A government study suggested that using the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, popularly known as the Triborough Bridge, would likely push the Mets past the Yankees as the most popular baseball team in the Empire State.
Lastly, I do not like your tone. You implore other posters not to take my post seriously and go so far as to claim that I'm the crazy one, despite the fact that I have more expertise and experience in the field. I don't usually stoop to name-calling, but you come off sounding a lot like an uncultured railroad zealot. Stick to the dead iron, buddy!

Most interesting bridge discussion ever! Heeeeeeeel Yeeeeah
Depending on what colors they go with, I actually have some confidence in Jay-Z to make this a pretty respectable look. The logo might be a little bland, but most of the widely respected and cherished sports logos are simple, clean, and bold. Think of the Yankees' "NY," the Packers' "G," Bears' "C," and Colts' Horseshoe.
