The NBA has officially brought back its iconic script logo for the 2022 Finals.
In a statement, NBA Chief Marketing Officer Kate Jhaveri said, “The NBA Finals serves as the culmination of our 75th Anniversary Season as we celebrate the league’s past, present and future. Highlighted by the return of our familiar Finals script font, back by popular demand, our new logo pays homage to our league’s history and looks forward to what’s ahead.”
The logo has long been a familar symbol to fans across the world, with many fans associating the scripture with championship play. The leagues switched to a standard block letter logo within the last few years, which many fans have called a mundane and forgettbale graphic that did not do the NBA Finals justice. The scripture felt more upscale and indiciative of the end of the season. The move to go back to the signature logo comes as a recognition of the league’s 75th anniversary season.
The NBA Finals begin on June 2.
The 2022 #NBAFinals presented by YouTube TV begins June 2nd on ABC.
