The Hawks have officially unveiled the logo so beloved that fans references a video game that didn’t exist at the time it was introduced. To be fair, the classic Hawks logo is ridiculously abstract and with the TV graphics at the time, it was probably hard to notice the bird in the innerspace.
“New” Pac-Man logo will be a secondary logo with the swooping hawk remaining in place. The Hawks didn’t disclose any change in team color scheme at the unveiling. Anything that makes fans nostalgic for the wonder years of Nique and Company has to be great, right?
I recall Sportslogos.net being one of the first, if not the first, to break the news via discovery of an NBA 2K15 game. Not quite, since that logo discussed is different and colorized. Hopefully, the Hawks will close out the series and not have their playoff run become an embarrassing moment in Atlanta sports history.
Oh, and in case you haven’t noticed, Go Hawks!
