The WNBA made a huge change this year and created a new logo. President Laurel Richie and her team wanted to evolve the logo as the game is evolving. The players are becoming better, more athletic, and more diverse. It was time for a change and the WNBA made that change. One of my favorite changes is the colors. That now sets them aside from their male counterparts. They are branching away from being like the NBA. They are now more than ever creating their own pathway. Richie believed that the WNBA logo should reflect the players. She says she looked at Tamika Catchings, Swin Cash, and Diana Taurasi to set the tone for the logo.
There’s an equation that goes with the creation of the new logo. The first was the old logo. The second part is the color of their ball. The fans think that that is the thing that is most iconic. Even though they are branching away from NBA they want to keep the affiliation because they are proud of that. Those 3 things created the new logo of the WNBA. There’s a lot of women in this league that have the athleticism to be the logo woman. Check out Twitter and Facebook to see who others think it is.
The WNBA is about to start its 17th season welcoming another great group of Rookies as well as some returning vets. It’s going to be another great season! Make sure you check everything out! The draft and preseason are coming soon. I won’t miss it, will you?
