How would the San Antonio Spurs’ logo look if edited to be for the Toronto Raptors?
The San Antonio Spurs’ logo has mostly looked the same for the past few decades. The spur as the “U’ in “Spurs” has been there, along with the mini-arced “San Antonio Spurs” words inside a graphic. It’s become an original look for the organization, similar to other teams that keep things status quo.
What if the Spurs had their logo adapted to every team in the NBA’s? It’s not exactly the first thing to come to mind, but an online artist, John Mang, did this for the Toronto Raptors.
A Reddit NBA user posted the image of Mang’s work, which is all 30 NBA teams’ logos adjusted to fit the Raptors. This includes the Spurs. “Toronto” replaced “San Antonio” at the top of the graphic in the black area, while “Raptors” replaced the “Spurs” in the gray part. Red letters were used on “Raptors” (h/t Uproxx).
It’s an interesting take on all 30 NBA teams and makes you wonder how another organization’s logo would look on the others. What about the Spurs’ on the New York Knicks? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? Maybe the Los Angeles Lakers? It’s a far-fetched idea and something best served for Reddit, but something fun to look at in a “what if every team had a similar or identical logo” situation.
Fan-made work for the NBA has been popular for a while. There were the jerseys before Nike unveiled its own, a handful for every team. Maybe these fan concepts will become a real thing. It may take years to develop, but someone might listen, right?
