The Los Angeles Clippers have always been LA’s “other” team. After the Showtime years in the ’80s with Magic Johnson and all that, but in recent years, Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and coach Doc Rivers have livened things up a bit. Then there’s that whole scandal from last year, but now Steve Ballmer, formerly of Microsoft, owns the team, and he’s making some changes. In fact, he took to Conan and Funny or Die to show off his team’s new logo:


Predictably, the Internet isn’t too fond of it.

  • That thin highlight on "clippers" is haunting me. (The rest looks alright in my book) 7 years ago
  • I'm with @MarkieAnn Packer, the "silver lining" in the Clippers type looks like a bad Bevel & Emboss. I'm fine with the rest of it though. 7 years ago
  • Minor details I might tweak but overall I like it 7 years ago
  • I don't like it. I mean, I'm ok with the LAC, but I hate the type and the highlight on it, and the curved lines make no sense in my opinion. I'm a huge nba fan and I hope that one day we'll go back to some more funny logos like this briliant one : https://fr.pinterest.com/pin/465348573971146935/ :) 7 years ago
  • I don't think it's that bad. A little weird but not horrible. I wish they had different colours though. 7 years ago
  • As Charles Barkley would say, "Turrible, just turrible." 7 years ago
  • Interesting. I'm not sure how the LA represents a court, other than it being a rectangle, but ok! 7 years ago
