    I fiddled with this thing trying to get this picture just straight posted on here for 10 minutes, but it never seems to let me.

    I gotta say, I LOVE this new logo. Growing up in Charlotte I saw a lot of Hornets games and they were always my second favorite team in the NBA(Sonics close 3rd). I am really excited to have them back, I think this will be great for Charlotte and the NBA. Charlotte never really bought into the Bobcats, getting back to the team the city loved should help.

    I don't. It can stay this way forever as far as I'm concerned.

    What would you change about it?

    Your post kinda says it all. The Pacers logo is a P. Not too much you can really do with it, I mean you can change it, but its still just a P.

    I wish the Pacers would have never done the slight alteration to the logo in 2005.

    You wish they wouldn't have put Gray/silver around the logo? LOL.

    they did that to increase their branding versatility and consistency. Hard to put a Blue "P" on a Blue background with out putting a white outline around everything all the time. The gray outline ensures that the logo can pretty much go on any sort of background with out having to slightly alter.

    It's indeed a minor complaint. I don't care as much about the outline as I do the font. I like the 1990-05 font. Again, very minor complaint.

    I think it'd be fun if we integrated a mascot or otherwise an animal/character into ours. Either a panther or technically you could tie in a 'pacer' with being a horse, and go with that.

    Honestly idk but the logo is plain boring. They could jazz it up (no pun intended) a bit.

    The Hugo logo looks like he's about to take a huge dump, otherwise good changes.
    "It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    Great logo. Now they need to just have the old pinstripes and they will be perfect.

    I don't like it, too angular. Just bring back the old original.

    They have 3; I don't like the above one as much, but there's another one more like the classic logo that I do like.

    That logo looks almost identical to the Pelicans logo to me... not complaining, but it really does.

    Bleh, I don't like it. Don't like any of these new logos with their sharp angles and ugly fonts. Reminds me of the XFL. Like Sollozzo, I don't like the newer Pacers font either.
