    Most of the originals were already cleaner and better than the redesigns.
    A few good ones are Raptors, Rockets, Thunder, and maybe Lakers.

    Others are kinda bad.
    Namely, Nets, Pelicans, Jazz, Magic, Clippers, and maybe Warriors.
    Worst offender is the Trail Blazers redesign, without a doubt.

    These are hard to look at. It would appear the majority of these were not passed through any kind of critique process and failed to take printing and merchandising into consideration.

    Good: Celtics, Knicks (much needed!), Mavs, Rockets, Nuggets, Timberwolves, Jazz, Suns, Kings.

    Bad: Raptors, Spurs, Bulls, Thunder, Hornets, Clippers, Sixers (AA level baseball team written all over it)

    Ugly: Pelicans, Pistons, Bucks, Trailblazers (what is that?!), Heat, Magic, Wizards, Warriors.

    I like the redesign and the original of the Lakers and the Hawks.

    Most of the originals are way better. I think the Portland Trailblazers might be the worst of the bunch. Clean design. All you need.
