Late last month, the world of Bikini Basketball, which is a thing, was rocked by scandal when one of its seven franchises, the Miami Spice, was revealed to have basically lifted its logo from the defunct NBA Seattle Supersonics. A stunning piece of journalism by CBS Sports blogger Royce Young, who pointed out that he noticed this obvious thing, revealed that the logos were basically exactly the same.
With the revelation, the sports world gasped as one and exclaimed, “There was an NBA team in Seattle? And that was just four years ago? No way.”
To their credit, the Miami Spice pretended like nothing had ever happened, whistled innocently, and unveiled this different logo pictured here on their Facebook page. The sports world, not one to be easily fooled, responded, “Seriously, they played professional basketball in Seattle? Do you mean the American Seattle or the Canadian Seattle?”
By changing their official logo a full month before their league even existed, the Miami Spice have the second-most logo changes per games played in sports history, behind only the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have changed their logo and team colors three times since you started reading this blog post.
