Miami Heat

Representing its abstract mascot with a flaming fire[basketball]ball is a creative solution for the NBA's Miami Heat. Although the tail end of the flame could use some refinement and the hoop is a slight distraction, overall this mark is both visually pleasing and functionally practical for its wide range of application requirements.

 

Phoenix Suns

Creatively drawing from the city's namesake, the Phoenix Suns logo employs a striking interpretation of the mythological bird and an abbreviation (PHX) which appeals to the hip United States basketball subculture. Not only are the illustration, symmetry and color palette visually pleasing, among its staid, traditional basketball peers it is a truly unique mark.
