Golden State Warriors go back to the future with new logo and unis

Written by Juan Cena on Friday, June 18 2010 and posted in SWRT
Remember that line in U2's "God Part II" where Bono sings "You glorify the past when the future dries up?" Well, the Golden State Warriors are testing that theory out with their new logo and jersey. The logo recreates the classic "The City" logo with the Golden Gate Bridge, replacing it with the under-construction Eastern Span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. It's also boring as crap.
The old "City" logo may be popular with some GSW fans, but it was kind of boring and gaudy at the same time. While the return to blue and gold it welcome, it would have been better to go with something a little more modern.
Or if going retro absolutely positively  had to be a priority, Golden State should have gone with something closer to the unis of the "Run TMC" days. Which were a lot cooler in their own conservative sort of way.


That was sweet looking. Maybe the fact GWS doesn't go back to something closer to this has to do with their giving Mullin the boot last year in his GM role.  Too bad. The uni looked way better than  the "City" version. It had a classic, but not dated look.
