The NBA has released its 75th anniversary logo ahead of the 2021-22 season.
Per a release from the league, the special logo will appear “on courts and official NBA merchandise, inside arenas and in original broadcast, digital and social media content.”
It also described the logo as a “fresh take on the league’s iconic Logoman identity, based in the classic 75th Anniversary symbol — the diamond.”
The league was founded in New York City on June 6, 1946, as the Basketball Association of America, or BAA. It changed its name to the National Basketball Association on August 3, 1949, when it merged with the competing National Basketball League.
The original NBA consisted of 17 teams, including the Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, Tri-Cities Blackhawks (now Atlanta Hawks), Fort Wayne Pistons (now Detroit Pistons), Minneapolis Lakers (now Los Angeles Lakers), Syracuse Nationals (now Philadelphia 76ers) and Rochester Royals (now Sacramento Kings).
