The pinwheel design for the Trailblazers has been around since the beginning of the team and it meant to be "a graphic interpretation of two five-on-five basketball teams lined up against each other." Which is kinda cool. It was also designed by the owners cousin. Not as cool.

The Astros have a history of logos and uniform changes that shame other franchises. Though they started life as the Colt .45's, the name change to the Astros 60 years ago brought Houston a space theme they have leaned into since.

The franchise suffered for the first 12 or so years then had the #1 pick in 1982 but had traded it away in 1980. So Cleveland fans, lets play revisionist history where one of these two logos adorns a throwback jersey with James Worthy's name on it. #LetEmKnow

The Chiefs, the Kings, the Monarchs. All Kansas City team names (at the time) that give you a sense of royalty. But don't let that fool you with how the baseball team came up with the Royals. Blame that on the American Royal parade and pageant.
