What NBA logos would look like if they were Pokemon


It’s time for the 2014 NBA playoffs, so we’re getting fired up by messing with logos again. This time we’ve moved into basketball. You may have vaguely heard of this animated series out of Japan known as Pokemon? Now imagine if they became NBA logos? (some of them might actually convert into logos who knows, they do change a lot)

Someone (we actually don’t know who specifically, it wasn’t us, we just wrote the snark below them) decided to bring this to life and show us what every logo in the NBA would look like if they were Pokemon.

All 30 NBA teams are here from the world champion Miami Heat to even the Tankadelphia 76ers. Plus a couple throwback bonuses on the final page.

Just like other remixes we’ve had, they’re broken down by a division per page. Check ‘em out (by clicking the page numbers at the bottom) and catch ‘em all, because remember with Pokemon: you gotta catch ‘em all.

All of the logo pictures are from The captions are ours, the drawings are…well, whoever did them. If you know, leave us a comment or a link and we’ll credit them and link back, but imgur’s how we found them.


Atlantic Division



Improvement: the logo no longer looks like Chris Bosh. Well…not as much anyway.




Snorlax here looks a lot like Kevin Garnett does these days. Add “Home” to the bottom of this logo and it’s perfect.




The Knicks are more like Kicks anyway, because they’ve been kicking their fans in the nuts for years now.




The vine they’re whipping these days is more like a licorice vine. Maybe the Bulbasaur can start. Rondo needs help.




The ninetales looks good, but these days they’d much prefer zerowins #Tankadelphia
