Mmmm, not sure on this. The lion doesn't work as a visual. The top one has a nice retro vibe. Love to hear peoples thoughts on this rebrand idea I did a few years back - https://www.behance.net/gallery/28464483/CONCEPT-Sydney-Kings-Logo

The current one is perfectly good....

I guess they're trying to "modernise" for the "youth"

I quite like three, though any would do.

Personally I've never liked the name, or the colours.
But at the end of the day, they're not selling to me. Whatever works in Sydney, to get them off their arses and following the NBL, is ultimately good for the league.

Third one looks fine to me. Current logo is recognisable but a bit awkward.

2nd one is best. #rd one is dominated by the Lion. 1st one appears to me at least to be out of proportion.

As a 36er fan, I dojt feel the right to comment, as ours is atrocious.

3rd one the lion dominates way too much, and looks too clipart

2nd one the Kings font is too heavy and blocky. Bit like the Hawks logo, which i also think is terrible. Also looks dated for a brand new logo.

1st one is ok. Simple and retro design, but could do with a bit more refinement.

I kinda like how the Kings havent really tampered with their logo much over their history. I hope they aren't changing it.

I wonder if there was some issue with the previous logo? They seem to have been dicking around with the TM for a few years, and have now withdrawn the application.

I also wonder if anything can be read into the prominence of the Lion? Given that supposedly a Lion was to feature prominently on one of the proposed logos for the Tassie team.

Someone on twitter mentioned licensing fees re: the opera house. I like both #1 and #2 and #3 would be fine on flags and shirts.

I think three is really cool but as merchandise like a t-shirt but the current logo is great enough.

Alternatively a violet crumble in the background could also be prominent.
