Rockets Unveil 2013 NBA All-Star Logo, Is It Templatey?

Written By:  •  Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Here’s something we missed… the logo for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game was unveiled late last month by the Houston Rockets at their draft party.

There’s not much to say about the logo, other than it feels template-ish… when I saw it my first thought was how predictable the design was.

NBA All-Star Logos: 2012 vs. 2013... feels similar doesn't it?

Like 2012’s Orlando hosted All-Star Game, the logo features a large star with three smaller stars around it, an “ALL-STAR” wordmark across the front above a swoosh which includes “CITY NAME – YEAR”.

What I miss is the days when these logos were highly customized to the region actually hosting the game.  Change the colours of any of those two logos above and they’d work for any other team or city…

Fun with templates!

Save for a few extra maple leaves thrown in on the Toronto one, all of those logos in the graphic above would be realistic NBA All-Star logos for any of those cities. Amiright?

Anyways, the new 2013 logo has been added to SportsLogos.Net – go check it out and give it a rating… the 2012 All-Star Game logo has a rating of 7/10 if you’re looking for inspiration.
